Have you checked out Grounds & Hounds yet? They sell organic coffee beans, but they also have a mission of eradicating unnecessary pet euthanasia, and they donate 20% of every sale to rescue organizations.
OK, all you dog show lovers, prepare yourselves. This new dog show doesn’t care about pedigrees! While most dog shows focus on each dog’s level of conformance to an ideal breed standard, this show judges things like Best Wiggle Butt, Best Snoring, Best Couch Potato, and Best Underbite. Hosted by Rebecca Romijn and Rich Eisen, the show will feature celebrity judges.
The show is sponsored by Adopt-A-Pet.com, and seeks to end animal homelessness.
Haven’t made a donation yet for Giving Tuesday? There’s still time! Pick out a local shelter or rescue and give them a little love today. Don’t know where to give? The ASPCA has a locator, and most shelters have a donation page on their websites.
Animal lovers around the world are uniting on September 27th, for the global movement known as Remember Me Thursday. We will light candles to shine a light on those waiting in shelters and rescues, and to remember those who have tragically lost their lives in shelters while hoping to find a home and family of their own. Help raise awareness! Light a candle of remembrance and post a photo using the hashtags #RememberTheRescue #RememberMeThursday. Together we can help make a difference and get the world talking about pet adoption.
What will you do tomorrow to help dogs get adopted?
In case you missed it (as I did), you can still see the Rescue Dog Show on the Hallmark Channel’s website or on their app. Categories included such characteristics as Best in Snoring, Best in Underbite, Best in Wiggle Butt, and Best in Kissing.
No spoilers here, but it’s an event you don’t want to miss!
