I know no one has spare money right now, and I'm going to write another post on Sammy in two shakes, but for those of you with an extra $5 burning a hole in your pocket and looking for a good cause, Alice is a contestant in the Humane Society's Spay Day 2009 Contest. An entrant gets points for each dollar donated in their name to benefit spaying and neutering programs (there's a $5 minimum donation).
As I might have mentioned before, Alice was brought picked up and brought into her shelter pregnant. She lost her puppy and had to have an emergency spay. I oftentimes wonder why someone down the road hadn't gotten her fixed-- it could've spared her a traumatic experience.
Alice's chosen non-profit is our local shelter, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. Last year, 1,186 wonderful pets were adopted from there, and we frequently see their new arrivals being walked around the neighborhood.
If you'd like to vote for Alice, her page is located here. As incentive, a little bit of quid pro quo action between us with your favorite charity is negotiable...
