A Special Gift

Thank you, Susie Roberti of BPTV'S "Let's Talk Tailwaggers" for the beautiful sign.  What a great surprise!

I delivered it today to the WAHS and they will hang it behind their front desk. It's a good reminder of what really is important.

Star Wars Coins $$$

I am so happy to update that $965.22 was deposited into the Veterans Fund at the WAHS from the sale of the limited edition Star Wars/Pets for U.S. Vets coins! This donation will enable 10 or more pets to be adopted out of the shelter at no charge to our local veterans.  There are still coins left so, please continue to support our program by purchasing this really cool C3PO good luck coin!!!
I chose C-3PO on our coin because he was in every movie :-)

Happy HOWLidays

  If you're thinking of adding a new furry member to your family, consider a shelter adoption first. Veterans adopt at no charge through my Pets for U.S. Vets program at the Washington Area Humane Society. You can make the difference. Adopt, donate or purchase a coin (see below). It's a good idea to wait until after the holidays to bring a new furry friend home. It will be much calmer then and you will have more time and patience to spend on training and loving your new best friend. Be safe and kind this holiday season.  God Bless America!                                                                            Your Pal, Suzi

On My Way Back

Hi Everybody!
I haven't updated for a few months due to a family emergency. But, rest assured, I am still working behind the scenes to get our local veterans and our local homeless animals teamed up. Please buy a Star Wars Commemorative Coin or donate to the Veterans Fund at the WAHS. This program that we started back in 2010 is still going strong. If you have any ideas for fundraising for this cause please let me know. Scroll to the beginning of this blog to learn how all of this started. Our local veterans don't pay adoption fees at the WAHS. It is a wonderful way to honor our vets and save our pets! Please help by donating or adopting. If you donate at the WAHS, please say it is strictly for the Veterans Fund. The code to put on your check is U.S. Pets for Vets. You can always reach me at dogparty84@aol.com with any ideas, questions or comments. Thank you for caring. "Working together in our community and making a difference."
