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!

Happy Mother's Day! Be a Mom to a Shelter Dog.

In the past two weeks, 54 of the 55 animals on the Urgent list at Dallas Animal Services have been rescued or adopted—only THEO is left, and he has until Monday, May 10, or he will be euthanized.
Theo is 1 year old and weighs 57 pounds. He’s a handsome fellow, a pit mix with a few red-orange freckles on his snow-white coat. Theo is friendly and good with people but doesn’t like other animals, so he needs a home where he’s the only pampered pet. Surely there’s a home out there for Theo! He’s neutered, has had all his shots, is heartworm negative and microchipped.

To adopt: 214-671-0249;; Dallas Animal Services, 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30, in Dallas .

Rescue groups: 214-670-8298;

Please spread the word. Thanks for your help.
