Giving Tower ASPCA help animals in need

First came Black Friday, and then was Cyber Monday…and today is Giving Tuesday — a chance to give back to a cause you care about. We know that as pet lovers, you feel as strongly as we do about helping animals in need and this year ASPCA has teamed with Crowdrise, one of the largest fundraising platforms on the Internet, to celebrate Giving Tuesday.

When you make a donation HERE, you’ll be supporting the important work of the ASPCA AND help build the Crowdrise Giving Tower, a large virtual tower built by donation “bricks” from generous people like you. You’ll be able to see the impact your donation is making in real time!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as Small Business Saturday — a day when we are encouraged to shop locally and support independent businesses, artisans and entrepreneurs. It’s the fifth year of Small Business Saturday and the day has grown into a powerful movement with more people taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is Nov 29.

Shopping small and local can be a great way to discover new and unique gift ideas for friends and family on your shopping list this year. During the Small Business Saturday event, many businesses will be offering discounts, free gift wrapping, shipping deals and more special offers. Promotions and events vary by location. Go HERE to see what’s going on near you.

As added incentive, American Express is giving members up to $30 back when you shop at participating locations on Saturday, November 29th. Visit ShopSmall.com to learn more and register your card for the promo.

Even if you aren’t able to get out and shop at local stores in your neighborhood, you can still participate by shopping small businesses online. Be sure to stop by and visit our pals over at RusticHound.com and pick up some paw-tastic gifts for your fur kids!

And don’t forget about Etsy.com for handmade goods and gifts for all the pets and people on your list!

We heard some super exciting news from our pals at ASPCA and wanted to share it with all of you!

Just last week, the winning shelter was announced in the ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge. This is the annual challenge in which animal shelters around the country compete to see who can save the most lives. The grand prize winning shelter receives $100K to help them continue their important work. You can go here to view all the winners and prizes.

This marks the fifth and final year of the competition. Since 2010, hundreds of contestants have dedicated themselves to this three month contest to increase their adoption numbers over the same period the previous year.

This year, the competing shelters saved more than 68,000 lives in just three months. In five years total, challengers saved more than a 282,000+ lives! Pet adoption is an important cause and is especially near and dear to my heart, because our Daisy is a rescue dog we adopted from a local shelter.

We hope you’ll join us in continuing to help save lives & support pet adoption:
