As you know, June is Adopt-A-Cat Month®. In honor of Adopt-A-Cat Month® I’ve added a new page to my blog – I Need a Home Please! On it is a widget that features cats from my favorite shelter, Duncan’s Place, a Cat Sanctuary. If you click on it, it takes you to Petfinder.com and you can look up pets everywhere. It looks like this:
I hope you’ll visit Petfinder.com. You can get a widget like this one for you own blog. Or, you may just find your new best furriend there!
It’s Saturday and that means bloghop! Join the fun.
Today is Adopt the Internet Day and Petfinder.com’s 15th birthday!
You all know that I was rescued from a trailer park by my mom’s friend and given to mom, but not all kitties (or dogs for that matter) are as lucky as I am. Some pets need help finding new homes like EK and Candy. They’re both from Duncan’s Place. Duncan’s Place lists their available cats on Petfinder.com. Mom looked at lots of cats on Petfinder.com before deciding on EK and Candy.
Did you know that Petfinder.com has other pets besides cats and dogs? They have rabbits, horses, fish, birds, and all kinds of wonderful fuzzy furriends waiting for someone to love them. If your home needs a new addition, Petfinder.com is the place to start.
If you’re full up, please join the blog hop and help spread the word.
My dear furriends. We’ve all heard about and seen the images from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I posted in Twitter asking where we could send money to help the animals that are victims of this disaster. It was easy to find links of where to send money and things to help people, but I couldn’t find anyone focusing on saving animals. @kurousanohaha, who lives in Japan, saw my tweet and was kind enough to send me this link: Animal Refuge Kansai. Edit – just did my donation. It does the donation in yen, so you’ll have to look up the exchange rate to figure out how many yen equal what you want to donate in your currency.
I know there have been a lot of appeals lately for money, but this has been a bizarre year for unusual natural disasters all over the world. My mom’s old, and she can’t remember ever seeing so many natural disasters happening in so many places so quickly, one after the other, like there’s been the last year or so. I really hope we can all dig down a little deeper and find an extra dollar or two to send. There are a few thousand of us anipals here on Twitter, and if we each just send a dollar that would be a few thousand to help save animals suffering because of the earthquake.
You can also give money to the SPCA International. And I just found out from Life with Cats that the American Humane Association is also collecting to funds targeted for Japan.
