Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Best Friends Animal Society is Having a Meet-and-Greet - March 28th in NYC

I joined Best Friends Animal Society last month when I heard they did a full spread on Rolling Dog Ranch (in Beautiful Montana), and I wanted to support them as well as get a copy of their magazine. I had no idea they have outreach in the NYC and surrounding areas (NJ, CT, as well).

I now get a email newsblast and this month this is what they sent:

Dear Valued Best Friends Members and Volunteers,

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a Meet-and-Greet event with new Best Friends New York City Program Manager, Jamie Rubin. This will be a great opportunity for everyone to get to know each other, as well as for you to hear about some of the exciting programs in store for the New York City area. These programs include a Super Adoption, Strut Your Mutt walk, Humane Education Programs for kids such as the "I Read To Animals" program, 4-Legged Food Drives, Pup My Ride transports for rescued puppy mill dogs, tabling events, and more!

We are so excited to meet you, hear your ideas and to share these new volunteer opportunities and information about programs with you. Your involvement is critical to our success. Please feel free to invite anyone you think may be interested in attending and learning about Best Friends. Thank you for your support, for helping the animals of New York City and elsewhere, and for helping to take a giant step toward the time when there are No More Homeless Pets.

The Meet-And-Greet will be held on:
Sunday, March 28th
3:00pm - 5:30pm

Whole Foods Tribeca
270 Greenwich Street
New York
2nd floor cafe
