Appreciate your Shelter/Rescue Challenge!

October 30, 2009

Friends! Sunday is the start of National Animal Shelter Awareness Week, which runs from November 1-7. This weekend is a great time to go visit your shelter or rescue and do something nice!

Big Paw Designs and I are partnering to ask you to show your local shelter or rescue how much you appreciate them. Please go and do something nice for your local organization. Hold kittens! Bring old towels! Buy a bag of dog food! Foster a furbaby! Give them a million dollars! Do SOMETHING to show you recognize their hard work. I did a post on things shelters need that might give you some ideas.

And, email me and tell me about what you did and send along a photo of you at the shelter, if possible or even just you. Big Paw Designs and I will be featuring stories of kindness and giving on our blogs and Facebook pages all next week. Each day, one lucky winner will win a Rescue Mom or Rescue Dad magnet, courtesy of Big Paw Designs.

JUST IMAGINE what we can all do if we each do a little bit! That’s FURPOWER at its best. Please participate in this challenge because even the smallest gesture counts. Our staff plans to visit our local shelter and bring some items they need plus spend time with the animals.

I’m thinking I should do a blogathon Friday night through Saturday. You’ve inspired me!

I want to get some other bloggers involved too, to make it a party– I’m going to hit up Dr Janet but I’m open to any other suggestions!
