Today January 15th, 2015 is 1/4 Blog the Change For Animals Days in 2015. We are joining a whole bunch of bloggers to write & read about our favorite animal related causes.
Tell us what you’ve done to Be the Change for Animals?
In 2012, I was inspired by my former shelter dog, Rolo to follow my dreams and launch our blog; Confessions of a Rescue Mom. We wanted to help out his former shelter by giving them another online resource to tell people about events, how to help out, animals for adoption etc. At first this was all that we did with our blog, it than grew so rapidly that we decided to feature other animal shelters, spotlight adopted pets from all around the world and talk about fundraisers going on all over the world. we also partner up with business’ who give back to animal communities as well. We use our blog to host fundraisers throughout the year that benefit animal shelters/rescues. Since June 23, 2011 Rolo & I have fund-raised & donated close to $10,000 worth of monetary & material items to shelters in need.
Who do you know who acts tirelessly on animals’ behalf?
With being an active person in the animal community online & in person, there are so many people I know who act tirelessly on behalf of animals. From our blogger friends, to authors who donate a portion to animal causes, to shelter staff & volunteers, to people who run online auctions to benefit animals in need.
I want to take this time to give a special shout out to an amazing group of girls who I could shout out from the mountain top of how much I adore you all! It’s the Kennel Staff at the Fort McMurray SPCA! You girls work to the bone, always are smiling, care so much for every single animal coming through that front door, so knowledgeable about all of the animals, go out and make a difference in our community and make sure every animal is going to the appropriate home. Know that Rolo and I appreciate every single thing that you do and we love you all! To find out more about the Fort McMurray SPCA CLICK HERE
What favorite cause has a special need right now?
A while back I seen a commercial for a TV show starting up called Dogs of War. For those of you who don’t know what it is about, There is a non-profit group in USA (new mexico to be exact) called Paws & Stripes that pairs shelter dogs up with veterans suffering from PTSD and train the shelter dog with the veteran to become a service dog for them. It is such an inspiring, powerful, emotional TV show that I think needs more recognition. To find out more about what they do and how you can help CLICK HERE
