Wanna Help Some Dogs?

We all like to help, but most people have a hard time leaving their city/country/dayjob/children behind (like me! I would totally go to the Amazon on a spay/neuter mission… except my dogs couldn’t come with and that would be way sad for everyone involved). So what CAN you do? Here’s three ways you can help this week:

1. American Dog Rescue needs “Likes” on Facebook! 

They’ve been blessed with a generous donor who will donate $1 for each Facebook “like” to Missouri animal tornado victims that were injured or displaced by the May tornadoes in Joplin, MO. As soon as they reach 10,000 “likes”, they’ll get $10,000. Wanna help? Here’s a link to their page.

2. Write a post, help a dog 2011 – Pedigree Dog Food (end date: Sept. 3)

Most of us don’t need encouragement to write blog posts, but in case you do, here’s a stellar cause: For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry dog food to a shelter. Here’s the details:

Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blogger’s post.  Here’s all you need to include in your post:

  • The Write a Post, Help a Dog program is aimed at raising awareness and food for the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year.
  • For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs — its best recipe ever — to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition.
  • The Pedigree Foundation — a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations.

Last but not least:

3. Help Save Zabora the Elderbull!  (raffle end-date: Sept 5)

Zabora the Elderbull

Zabora is an elderly pitbull who is currently recovering from a ruptured blood clot after her spay operation. She also has mild arthritis and treatable conjunctivitis, in addition to being infected with a serious case of cuteness (no known cure for that, only treated by cuddles and love). Love and a Six Foot Leash is trying to get the funds together to help Zabora and donate some money for her care to the family that adopts her. Their deadline is September 5th. Have a few bucks you can throw at a pibble-related cause? Go to Zabora’s page at ChipIn, or you can also enter the raffle for a bunch of pretty sweet stuff at the blog.
