Well, since there are so many dogs around there that need homes, I have added a very cool feature to my blog - it's the Featured Pet Module, you can see it in the sidebar of my blog. It's kind of like a slideshow of dogs in Maryland that need homes. You can configure your own and choose the font color, choose a state or show pets from all states, and choose a type of pet or show all pets. Pretty neat, huh?
If you have a web site or blog, you can also link to Petfinder, click here to choose a logo to use as a link.
My mom found a really cool site today called the Animal Rescue Site. You can click and help to feed homeless animals in shelters, get lots of neat information, contribute to help animals affected by Katrina, and shop their online store. Their online store has REALLY neat, unusual things from all over the world, and each purchase helps to feed animals in shelters. Mom bought some purple "Paws for a Cause" bracelets, a soapstone heart with pawprints on it that is a paperweight, and a purple pawprint keychain. That way people will ask about the bracelets, the paperweight and the keychain and mom can tell them about The Animal Rescue Site. Mom says the guy she shares an office with at work will never stop calling her "Crazy Dog Lady" now, but she doesn't care. She says it sounds better than "Crazy Cat Lady", and I agree!
They have a lot of beautiful artwork, jewelry, pet supplies, clothing, books, etc. It's a great way to do your holiday shopping and feel good about it!
