There was Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and now the second annual Giving Tuesday. Last month, I donated to the World Food Program
help get the Philippines
food after the typhoon that killed thousands of people. Today, I helped out the
Berkeley Humane Society by placing an order thru their Amazon Wish List for
their Dog Program.
“Our Amazon Wish List is filled with supplies that we need to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs in our community. While in our care, our feline and canine friends need attention, love, and enrichment, and of course food and supplies. The better our supplies, the more complete and wholesome care we can provide the animals. The better their care while at Berkeley Humane, the more adoptable they are. The more adoptable they are, the quicker they find homes. The quicker they find homes, the more lives we can save.”
Bevo, my Boston Terrier, was purchased thru a breeder in the
Central Valley in 2008. I was overruled to
even consider looking at shelters. The other party only wanted a full-bred
animal. My Bevo is now five-years-old and as healthy as can be, per his vet who
asked me if I was willing to give him away. Absolutely not! Though Bevo does
not have the typical facial markings of a Boston
with his half a blue eye, he’s nothing but perfect to me. And you can find your
new, perfect, furry, family member at your local shelter.
|My comforter. He always knows what to do when I'm sad.|
