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!

Creative Animal Rescue

I saw this story linked on facebook and was just thinking of sharing it with you and thought "what a nice story," when I realized the subject of the story is a facebook buddy of mine who does dog rescue!

I am very pleased to present this to you!
Real estate professionals work hard to find prospective property-owners their dream homes. But one New Jersey group is committed to providing that same service for pets-in-need as well.

The Diamond Real Estate Group, from Mount Laurel, has used social networking sites such as Facebook to personally sponsor 25 animal rescues and help facilitate over 100 more over the past couple of years.
"Our team started with animal rescue two years ago," says Toni Diamond, founder of the group. "So many dogs and cats that would make wonderful pets are euthanized because they are dumped into shelters unwanted. We believe it's important to stand up for these animals that have no voice." has the goods..

Check out this other quote that is one million percent true:
"The South does not regulate with spay and neuter as much as the North," says Diamond. "This results in lots and lots of unwanted puppies and shelters that fill up quickly. We network with friends, vets, shelters, cross-posters and volunteer transporters to get dogs from North Carolina and Georgia up north."
Remember those transports I go on periodically and for which I have posted numerous impossibly cute pictures? This is how those Sundays fit into the big picture in dog rescue.

Please get your pet spayed or neutered!
