I know a lot of you, in our area are
well aware of the on going investigation
of the huge puppy mill operation.
A total of nearly 600 dogs have been seized
since Jan. 16 in Snohomish and Skagit counties.
Many of the animals were found living in
deplorable conditions, officials said.
The dogs didn't have sufficient food and
water and were covered with urine and feces.
(The Everett Herald)
Now the life saving task of how to take
care of all these dogs, from the actual
rescue, cleaning, feeding, medical
attention (some needed it ASAP)and
After seeing this horrible report on the
evening news, I also read about it in
The Everett Herald. I immediately thought of my two favorite shelters in our area!
SPOT ('Saving Pets One at a Time'),
is very near and dear to my heart,
(We adopted our dog through them)!!!
I checked out their website and sure
enough, they've been working with the
rescue and are asking for our help, please
go check it out, there are several ways
that we can help!
Their gratitude goes out, to the hundreds
of volunteers that have already stepped up,
and unselfishly offered their help!
My other favorite rescue shelter N.O.A.H. (Northwest Organization for Animal Help)!!!
(This is where we adopted our cat Elfie
from)!!! She too, was taken from a horrible
situation in our state, a few years ago.
I can't say enough for these rescue
organizations that go in and save these
animals!!! NOAH alone, took in 50 of these
dogs (did I mention, they're a'NO KILL'
Shelter)? Please check out
their website and see how you can help
with this horrible situation!!!
I've had this on my mind for sometime,
and because of this terrible situation,
I've decided to act now!...
I PLEDGE TO GIVE 10% OF EACH OF MY SALES,
FROM BAUBLES BUTTONS & BEADS, to SPOT!
I'm very excited about this and hope
others will do the same, for their
favorite charities!!! PLEASE TRY!
