Help Celebrate Shelter Pets Today (and Every Day!) #CelebrateShelterPets

shelter pet project

Today, shelter pets will take over Facebook for the fourth year in a row! Help celebrate and spread the word about pet adoption. People are three times more likely to go to a shelter or rescue group if they have talked to someone else who has. Be that someone!

All you have to do is post a photo and story about your adopted pet to your Facebook profile today. Be sure to tag the Shelter Pet Project, and use hashtag #CelebrateShelterPets. And feel free to share your post to our wall so we can celebrate together since Daisy is an adopted shelter pet, too!

Support National Mill Dog Rescue By Gifting Christmas Music from Dahna Bender

Dahna Bender Christmas Music CD

Here’s a great gift idea that supports a fantastic animal cause! It’s a Christmas Music CD from Dahna Bender. This talented artist is using her beautiful voice to support National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR). Profits from her Christmas Giving of the Heart album go to support the work and mission of NMDR to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home discarded puppy mill dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry.

I’ve been getting in the holiday spirit listening to the Christmas classics on this CD, including Silent Night, Winter Wonderland and lots more long-time favorites plus a few that were new to me.  Here’s the back cover from the album jacket so you can view the full list of songs:

Christmas music always makes a thoughtful gift, but this one is truly a special one because it supports a cause so near and dear to all of us pet parents. The album is available on Amazon and you can learn more about the artist, her background and work, at dahnabender.com.

You can also connect with Dahna and listen to some of the songs from the album on her Facebook Page.
