Pecs and paws – that's what the soon-to-be released Charleston Firefighter Calendar is serving up for 2016.

One of the paw-some stars of the latest edition, which benefits abused animals, is Caitlyn, the South Carolina dog who made headlines in May when she was found with her muzzle taped shut.

As these photos show, this courageous pooch has clearly bounced back from the brink – a surgery to reconstruct her lips, cheeks and tongue was successful – and, more than a month after her story came to light, she has moved in with a medical foster family, where a veterinary employee is currently caring for her, ABC News 13 reports.

Artist Mark Barone Paints Portraits of 5,500 Euthanized Dogs to Raise Awareness About the Plight of Shelter Animals

Stacked ten high, they span the length of two football fields and outsize Michelangelo's famous Sistine Chapel ceiling paintings. But for Jacksonville, Florida, artist Mark Barone and partner Marina Dervan, the collective masterpiece of thousands of 12x12 portraits dubbed An Act of Dog is more than a work of art – it's a heartfelt call to action.

"A camera can't give an image soul," Barone says in the trailer for the upcoming PBS documentary on the project. "But an artist can."

To that end, Barone set out to paint the soulful faces of 5,500 shelter pets that were euthanized over the past few years – each portrait representing one of the 5,500 dogs lost to America's kill shelter system daily. That's 1.2 million dogs put down each year because shelters are simply out of space and the animals are out of time.
