One of our resolutions for the year was "do what you can, where you can". Our city has a limit of 2 dogs per household so we can't adopt a new dog but there are other ways to help. Volunteer your time, donate supplies or money, help with rescue transports and share information.

We saw that Hill's Science Diet will be paying the adoption fees for 3000 cats and dogs from participating shelters on January 24. Shelter adoption fees can range from $10 to more that $300.

Get involved in CHANGE A PET'S LIFE DAY and open your home to a pet. The first ten adoptions at participating Hill's partner shelters are free on January 24, 2009. New pet owners will also receive a starter kit that includes free Hill's® Science Diet® pet food and tips to give their adopted cat or dog the best start in their new life.

Participating shelters can be found at

If you have room in your life for a new family member, please consider adoption. If you do take advantage of this program, feel free to spend the amount of the adoption fee on new toys to welcome your new family member to the pack. :-)

Woof ya later,
Princess Eva & Brice

Tail wags,

What a great khause!

As for those funds, I wonder if Brice would have any toy suggestions!


The Thundering Herd said...

What a great message. We are glad we live where there is not a limit on the number of dogs! But our humans are saying we can not add one more - bummer.

Science Diet gives rescues a great discount on their food. We are feeding a lot more dogs this way.

love & wags,

Great story, Princess Eva!

I always tell peoples to visit the Slammer if they are looking for good dogs!

We might have room for a furry small dog, but we will see!

Thanks for spreading the word! I'm afraid I would beat up any new addition.

Mum says we have no room for a dog but I would be willing to share my purple Huffle bed!

What a great post and a great thing to do - we want a new furiend here too but Mom says she has to have self-control and we have to wait. We think we should have the control.

Woos, the OP Pack

We have room now. It's tempting!

Pippa said...

Hey your momma is busy - when is she going to take over my blog too?

And Eva is so clever, I was going to mention that we had changed the music specially for my day, but Misery forgot and you beat her too it, so now she has written up about how clever you are to spot it.

Misery would like to rescue another pup but the flat is too small, and I would have to share the toast.

I've been trying to talk my mommy into getting another furbaby. She is very tempted!

What a wonderful program but Mom said No Way - we are just too much for her! We don't know what she means!

This is a great blog entry. I am a member of a few different pet organizations in our area. We have 8 cats on our farm and 1 Aussie Shepherd. Not to mention the rabbits we breed. I am loving your blog and I hope to bookmark you or become a 'follower'. Stop by my garden sometime. I often post blogs about my pets because they play a very important part in my garden!

Best Wishes - your Friend in the garden!
