Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

HELP YOUR LOCAL SHELTER BY DONATING "STUFF" – "SPRING CLEANING IN THE FALL"

I volunteer at our local Humane Society & as you all know they are “full to overflowing”.  All the shelters/rescues are in dire need of supplies.  So, spring clean your house this fall & donate (it’s also tax deductible).  They need tons of stuff:  your unused dogs stuff (collars, leashes, bowls, balls/toys, grooming stuff, crates, etc.); sheets/blankets, peanut butter/food, unused/unexpired meds; even the paper from your shedder – and more/more/more.  Oh and …..and towels, lots and lots of towels!  Discarded crib mattresses make wonderful beds, especially for older dogs

Check the website for your local shelters/rescue – they usually list items that you can donate.

Another thing to consider is to volunteer to be a foster parent.

And please start working in your area to have the state laws, city ordinances and community rules changed and amended to increase the number of pets willing parents are allowed to own and foster.

We are truly in a time of disaster!!  Not allowing people to adopt of foster one or two more pets is a crime!

Help save lives!   Adopt and foster just one more pet and help the change the laws that prevent that!

Cudos to you all!

Rescues and Runways Fashion Shows To Promote Pet Adoptions and Support the ASPCA by ‘maurices’

Rescues & Runways kicks off on August 26 with a major fashion show and entertainment at the maurices home office in Duluth, MN.  Rescues & Runways is an exciting new nationwide effort by maurices to support local shelters and the animals they help.  During the month of September, more than 700 maurices stores in 44 states will host pet-themed fashion shows in partnership with their local animal shelter and sell a special charm to benefit the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®).
Each Rescues & Runways fashion show will feature models from each community walking the runway with the latest fall looks from maurices, plus a pet who is available for adoption.  Also throughout September, people are encouraged to support their local shelters by bringing the supplies they need to their local maurices store. Customers who bring in a donation for the shelter will receive a coupon for 20 percent off one regular-priced item. The campaign goal is to collect 500,000 pounds of supplies across the nation.

In addition, maurices is introducing a limited edition Friends for Life Charm, a celebration of the special bond people share with their furry friends. The Friends for Life Charm is just $5.00 and will be sold in all maurices stores beginning in mid-September through October 31. For every charm purchased, $2.50 will go to support the ASPCA and its national shelter outreach program. The ASPCA will receive a minimum donation of $50,000 from maurices, with an ultimate goal of raising more than $100,000.

ASPCA Needs Your Help To Help Our Furry and Feathered Friends

As someone who cares about animals, you’ve committed to protecting pets in need and the ASPCA is there to make it happen, 365 days a year. dog Sadly, this year will be worse than most. With some pet owners having to make tough decisions, pet food sales and veterinary visits have decreased in the last few months. The cruel truth is that that more pets are being dumped, abandoned and turned out onto the street while others are suffering hunger, neglect and abuse. 

Your support helps the ASPCA rescue these pets in their time of crisis, even during the coldest months of the year. Your gift of $25 or more can mean the difference between life and death for pets with nowhere else to turn.

Please help us with as generous a gift as you can afford. Even a small amount can go a long way for a pet in need.

Make a gift
