Wag n’ Swag: A Fundraiser for Sandy Pets

Hi everybuddy! Happy, happy Monday! Me and Brudder Ranger hope you had a super terrific weekend!

Okay, now, remember how I told you abouts all the SWAG mom gots from BarkWorld? And that we had sat down and decided to do something cool with it?

Well, THIS is what we decided to do!

See, after our fires here in Collie-rado this year, we understand how hard it is when something bad happens to your town. And we also know first-paw how many pets get their lives turned upside down when that happens…and how many rescues and shelters and volunteers step up to make sure all those pets are safe and sound.

So working with our furend Mazzie and her Assistant at Mazzie Takes Manhattan, we came up with these three local rescues that have been working around the clock — sometimes without water or electricity! — to help pets who have been through so much.

Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City

Posh Pets Rescue in New York City

Staten Island Hope Rescue

Here’s How it Works

Just click on this fundraising linkie and make a donation of ANY amount from now until this Saturday, November 17th. (You can pay with PayPal or a credit card.) And then we’ll enter you to win one of the super cool swag bags below.

That’s right. ANY amount. (Um, okay, I think that the donation thingie makes you give at least 5 green papers but that’s ALMOST any amount.) Our goal is to raise 1,500 green papers so that we can give 500 to each rescue/shelter. That might seem kinda big but with everybuddy giving just five or six or ten, I know we can make it happen!

What About Those Prizes?

Okay, here’s the fun stuff! We puts together one kitteh swag bag and one doggie swag bag. On Sunday, we’ll gather up everybuddy who donated and then do a  drawing through Random.org for the winners.

First the doggie bag (heehee!):

K9 Advantix T-shirt * Iams Bandana * Rachel Ray Nutrish Backpack * ASPCA Frisbee * Pets360 Aluminum Water Bottle * Tillman’s Treats by Natural Balance * K9 Advantix Stuffed Puppy * Old Mother Hubbard’s Treats * Eukanuba TuffBall with strap * Poop Bags and Container from BarkWorld * Hol-ee Roller Ball by JW Pets * All-Natural Chicken Flavored Dog Treat from flexi, USA * Kong Treats * Eukanuba Cup  *PetHub Dog Tag

Now the kitteh bag:

Advantix Fleece Blanket * GloGirly Bag * Petco Think Adoption First Bag * Temptations Chicken  Treats * Catster.comPoop Scoop * Vet Depot Aluminum Water Bottle * Kookamunga Krazee Kitty Catnip * Toy Mouse * Izea Water Bottle * Natural Balance Green Pea & Duck Cat Food (2 sample bags) * Set of 6 Hand-Crafted Cat Toys and Cat Nip from Modern Cat Studio * Natural Balance Treats (Rabbit Formula) * GloGirly Pen * Cat Eye Sunglasses from Mouse Breath * PetHub Cat Tag

Neat, huh? AND we might have a few more small prizes coming soon, too! So stay tuned!

Please Help Us Spread the Word

To reach our goal, we need to lets lotsa furries and their pawrents know about it. And even if you don’t have any green papers to spare — or you’ve already given somewhere else — you can still help!

  14. I love the Liberty Shelter. In fact, I was brought there as a kitteh. I was rescued from there by a great rescue group because it is, indeed a kill shelter. That’s their naughty little secret. I recently talked with my friend who runs the Jersey City Rescue A Call 4 Paws and she says they’re still a kill shelter. I wouldn’t want them to miss out on much needed funds but thought you might want to know this.

  15. We has posted and shared and donated and we is exhausted. We hopes you get lots of green papers.
