A few days ago I blogged about the Tipton County Humane Shelter. Well, Dogsters being Dogsters many of them jumped into action to save as many of the shelter pups as possible. One group of Dogsters took a longer view and came up with a way to help as many small shelters, and their dogs, as possible.
The Snoop Dogg Beagleys talked with the Tipton County folks. What they found out is what many of you who work with small shelters probably already know. Many shelters are faced with having to euthanize perfectly healthy and family-friendly dogs just because they lack funds for vaccinations and other dog needs.
So what did our darling Snoop Doggs do? They set up a new fund to help shelters that need funds for medical and care needs. In one night, the Snoop Doggs got together and set up a site and a PayPal account! I’m told that Eddie Essig’s mom, Kim, did some pretty heavy lifting in the site department. The new fund is the Snoop Doggs Animal Rescue Awareness Fund!
Dogsters never fail to amaze me! What caring two- and four-footed folks!
Here’s what several Dogsters have barked in to say about the Snoop Doggs Animal Rescue Awareness Fund:
From Daphne, Friend Lea’s furmom:
After all that went on with the Tipton County Shelter yesterday, our Snoop Dogg Group got together last night in a Yahoo conference and came up with a idea of how we can help. Not only the Tipton Co. Shelter but other needy shelters across the US. Its called “Snoops Animal Awareness Fund”. I’ve attached a document that one of our Administrators (Eddie’s Mom, Kim Essig) put together that we are going to post in our group forum. Kim, being the amazing lady she is, also set up a web site and pay pal account to get this project moving. Take a look at our new web site. It explains our mission.
One thing I’d like to add.. I personally would like to thank Dogster and everyone associated with this site for bringing all these caring people together. I am proud to say that I’m a Dogster and a member of one of the greatest groups on Dogster, Snoop Doggs. All For the Love Of Dogs!
And this in from Jade Snoop:
My buddies over at the Snoop Dogg group have created a website to provide donations and urgently needed items to animal shelters and rescue organizations who need it most.
Please help us spread the word and help an animal who’s looking for their fur-ever home!
Many tails wags and Happy Turkey Day to all!
