Help Corpus Christi Shelter Pets

We are planning to post a fundraising commentathon shortly. Don't worry, it won't cost you anything but a comment. We hope your weather will cooperate. We'd hate to end up commentless (yes, we know there is no such word) because you're all huddled under blankets and can't see the monitor or reach the keyboard. So be sure to thaw out and have your paws ready to type - please.

We are happy to tell you the tuxie tornado was adopted from Petsense yesterday.  Someone was interested in the dilute calico, but if the cat isn't adopted by Christmas we know who has his eye on her.  ;)  Here is a photo of the one we were missing yesterday. 

Reminder, these are shelter cats adoptable through Petsense in the Wal-mart shopping center, Thomaston, Georgia.


We were working on a different post for today when we received an email from an animal welfare friend in Corpus Christi, Texas. In the interest of time, since this needs to be done today, we are just printing the email as it was received - well, almost. Even though most of you don't live in Corpus Christi, we hope you will take a few minutes of your time to contact these people and ask them to support "Crashing with the K9s." It is for a very worthy cause.  Thanks.

PLEASE EMAIL THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE IN A TOTALLY SEPARATE EMAIL ASKING THEM TO SUPPORT THE "CRASHING WITH THE K9S" TO RAISE FUNDS TO HELP THE ANIMALS! PLEASE DO THIS ASAP SINCE THEY WILL MAKE THE DECISION TOMORROW. PLEASE SEND THIS TO ANIMAL LOVERS NEAR AND FAR!! BELOW IS THE DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT!


On Friday, December 17, 2010 at 5 pm, Animal Control Advisory Committee volunteers including our shelter manager want to “Crashing With the K9s” (hopefully). These volunteers will sleep in the cages with a dog to raise awareness of animals at the facility, bring people to our shelter, and encourage the public to adopt a pet and give them a forever home for the holidays. There will even be Santa Claus in the kennels that needs to have his fees paid for Christmas for the pets.

The volunteers have a goal to raise $2,500 each to pay their “impoundment” fees. As the amount is raised per volunteer, they will be released with proper licenses and tags of course! J

The donations will be made through PAAC – People Assisting Animal Control on their website.

100% of the funds raised will be used to pay for a part-time employee to work with the animals in the no-kill adoption program. The more we can adopt out, the more we can save and the less we can euthanize. The city has cut staff and we need help to save lives!
