To All My Faithful Funders and Dogster Pals...
I wanted to let you all know that I will again be walking in the 5th Annual "Barks on the Boards" Dog Walking Event to benefit the Ocean City, NJ Humane Society (HSOC). The HSOC is a wuffderful, no-kill shelter that continues to function with the help of public support and a full staff of volunteers.
“Barks on the Boards 2008” will take place on Saturday, May 24th, and it is the ONLY day that us furry 4-leggers are allowed to strut our stuff on the boardwalk! This will be my 4th year participating in this pawsome event, it is loads of fun! In past years I’ve even got to meet some fellow Dogsters - and am hoping to meet more this year!
Last year, I raised over $1,300 for the shelter & was named highest individual donor - for the 2nd year in a row! It was all fanks to the generosity of my family, friends and most importantly my Dogster pals!
This year I have set quite a lofty goal of $2,000, and wif your help maybe I can reach that! That is a lot of bones that will go a loooong way for the puppers and kitties at the HSOC!
So…if anywoof wants to send a few (or a lot…bol!) of bones in my name you can send it directly to the shelter in my name: Jay-Jay, Yorkshire Terrier, Phila. PA. Make sure you also mention that it is for the “Barks on the Boards 2008” event. And hey, if ya can't send any bones don't worry about it! Just bark me some woofs of support to inspire my little legs to keep on walkin'! Although I will have my doggie stroller wif me this year so I might not have to do all that much walkin’...BOL!!! But really, any sort of support is welcomed and appreciated!
Don’t forget to stop by the JJ’s Faithful Funders group for updates!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read!

This is a snip-it from the HSOC website:
The Humane Society of Ocean City is a private, non-profit (501c) organization located in Ocean City, New Jersey. HSOC operates a truly "No-Kill" Animal Shelter; a low-cost spay/neuter clinic; and a humane educational center.
Since 1964, HSOC has proudly served Ocean City and surrounding communities in Atlantic and Cape May counties. Our Shelter has rescued and cared for many stray or abandoned pets. HSOC strives to place its homeless residents into good, loving homes. For unwanted pets, HSOC provides them a safe, clean, and happy home in the Shelter for the rest of their precious lives.
In September 2002, HSOC opened a new building for spay/neutering and humane educational services. The local public is welcome to bring their pets and apply for spay or neuter appointments for affordable fees. The clinic has state-of-the-art medical equipment, staffed by a licensed veterinarian and professional assistants. The educational center holds classes and shelter tours for children and young adults on the proper treatment and dignified respect for all animals. The center is staffed by dedicated volunteer teachers who effectively convey to young minds an understanding and appreciation of pet guardianship.
There are other ways we help pets, as you will learn by reviewing the many areas of our website. And with your financial support and volunteer efforts, we can transform our hopes into realities.
We stand by our motto: "You've Gotta Have Heart!"
