Hi, everyone ... it's me, Finn! Mom and I were talking last night, (as we like to do ... ), and she happened to mention that she had heard of this great event sponsored by Best Friends that promotes the adoption of black cats (and dogs). From now (actually the event started on August 15th, but Mom, as usual, is a few steps behind the times) through September 17th, if you adopt a black dog or cat at one of the list of participating shelters you can find here, you will save 50% off the usual adoption fee. Mom personally feels that it's almost blasphemous to put a price tag on a living being, but she also thinks it's a great idea to promote more awareness about how much harder it is for black dogs (and especially black cats) to get adopted compared to cats and dogs of other colors. I agree. So today's post will be devoted to this event, and also from now until the 17th, we'll be spotlighting one black dog and one black cat each day along with whatever else we post about.
Now ... what if you want to help not just black cats and dogs, but any cats and dogs in your local shelter or rescue group who so desperately need it, BUT ... you can't adopt one right now? This is a situation that a lot of animal lovers find themselves in, because the truth is, the plight of homeless animals is bigger than any one person ... and as much as people like my mom might want to ... you can't take them all in. So here's what we're going to do. Now through September 17th, tell your friends (in the Blogosphere and IRL) to stop by and leave us a comment with their name and the name of the shelter or rescue group they most wish they could help ... and on the 18th, we'll enter all the names into one of those Randomizer thingies, and then we'll donate a dollar a comment (up to max of $100) to the winner's shelter or rescue group of choice in the winner's name. So spread the word ... and don't forget to leave YOUR comment!
Now, take a look at these Black Beauties Mom and I found at Petfinder.com!
