Win $15,000 for Your Favorite Shelter

As co-founder of Through a Dog’s Ear, I have had the pleasure of working with and the ASPCA.  We share a common vision of helping shelter dogs find forever homes. Through a Dog’s Ear does this by donating music to shelters and rescue organizations. helps place thousands of animals in loving homes each year. And the ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, passes humane laws and shares resources with shelters nationwide. They were our first pilot shelter when we launched our “free music to shelters” program.

Synchronicity abounds. I was absolutely delighted to read that Care2 along with and the ASPCA is sponsoring “America’s Favorite Animal Shelter” contest.

In today’s economy, shelters are over-crowded with pets waiting for their forever homes and shelter staff and volunteers needing more help and improved facilities. Would $15,000 help your favorite animal shelter? Care2 is donating a total of $30,000 to animal shelters and rescue groups. 1st prize is $15,000. 2nd prize is $7,000 and 3rd prize is $3,000. Eight weekly rewards totaling $4,000 will also be awarded.

Here’s how it works:

I would love to see all the wealthy athletes, celebrities, newscasters, Trumps, etc etc step up and donate to animal shelters in their states. We would never have to worry if those that have all the money gave the same percentage to good causes as those that just scrape by, the working class. I'm certain their lawyers will use the proper loopholes to their advantage.
Come on The Donald, A-Rod, Derek, Shaq, Letterman, Leno -- anyone out there????????

Better yet - if you are wiping a baby bum just keep washcloths for that available - we use washcloth…

E-bikes are about hybrid human+electric power. The most basic type has a hand control for the boost…

Thanks for sharing the informative article and relevant inks from Ms. Pellizzon.
