LauraW sends along the good word:
Please send your pet photos in by Sunday night so we can roll the calendar out next week. The submissions have been amazing. There are clearly a lot of very loved pets out there.
Rosie’s CafePress store section has officially launched with her own Pet Overlords mug. Big thanks to Ahab for the mug design and Evelyn DeHais for the illustration. More products to follow.
Here is a recent update for the Balloon Juice community from Evelyn Bridges, founder of CAAR:
Connie McNab and Evelyn Bridges, of Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue in Brevard, NC, have just returned from a 3-day stay in Las Vegas for the No More Homeless Pets Conference sponsored by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary of Kanab, Utah. Over 1,150 animal rescue people from all 50 states and 6 countries were in attendance. It was an awesome experience for all that care for our neglected, abandoned, unloved, mistreated and injured pets. The common goal is to have all adoptable pets find homes by the year 2015. This is being accomplished now by new spay and neuter programs, continued work with kill shelters, passionate, caring and hardworking volunteers saving the animals one-by-one, and coalitions between government agencies, shelters, rescue workers, spay and neuter clinics, vets and many others.
We want to thank the Balloon Juice community for continuing to support Charlie’s Angels’ rescue work by buying from the CafePress Store. As of this date, we have saved 346 dogs and cats with your help. We are very excited about the Pets of Balloon Juice 2011 Calendar now in production, another wonderful source of donations for us. With our sincere gratitude — we are the voice of our 4-legged friends who cannot speak for themselves.
For the critters.
