True Gift...

Our mommy wants to thank you all very much for the birthday wishes yesterday! Your comments helped to make it a very nice day for her.
Since Mommy already has the three of us plus Daddy, there wasn't any present to get her other than one that helped out animals in need. To do this, we're going to need you help...

We recently accepted a Paw It Forward challenge from our furiends in Kansas Phantom, Thunder and Ciara. Aren't they such a beawootiful family?
The OP pack gave a generous donation to help Shelby so, for our PIF challenge and also in lieu of our mommy's present, we're going to donate to an animal charity. How much we donate will be decided by you! Just leave a comment on this post from now until our Monday post publishes at midnight PST and we'll donate $1 per comment!

If you'd like to accept the PIF challenge and Paw It Forward to others in need too, just let us know in your comment. We'd love for three of our furiends to participate but we do understand that times are very tough right now. Anyway, thank you for helping us help animals!

Disclaimer: Only one comment per family will count for the $1 comment challenge and spam will not count at all.

What a great idea for a Paw It Forward! I am actually doing something a little bit similar for my book release party, which I'm holding in a couple of weeks. It's going to be a combination book party and fundraising drive for one of my favorite cat rescues!

Those are some beautiful doggies! I have several animal and cat rescues I donate to on a regular basis as well as throwing a few bucks in here and there for specific needs for specific animals...I'd rather spend my money on animals than people...

That is a wonderful birthday gift for your Mommy, and those three Huskies from the OP Pack are sure handsome and pretty.

Marg said...

That is a beautiful family. We would like to know more about how the Paw it Forward works. Our assistant is not real bright about those things. We would like to participate if we can. That is such a wonderful thing to do. Can I use it to sponsor a kitty or doggie in a shelter?? I really like this idea. Thanks for doing what you are doing. It is wonderful.
Have a great week.

Admiral Hestorb said...

what a lovely thing to do. And it gave me an idea for my birthday too. Might as well give green papers to the feral cat helpers.

That is very cool! Your mommy sure knows how to count her blessings!!!
