Gratuitous plug following: Best Friends Animal Society of Kenab, UT is *way* deserving of support, *way* more than the c̶r̶o̶o̶k̶e̶d̶ ̶&̶ ̶p̶o̶l̶i̶t̶c̶a̶l̶ 'que$tionable' but more-adverti$ed animal welfare org$ like A$PCA (with Sarah McLachlan's record-shattering TV appeal known in charity circles as "THE Ad") or worse, Humane $ociety of the United $tates (H$U$) or worst of all, PETA.
BFAS is a huge, true 'no-kill' shelter, and makes heroic efforts to rescue condemned animals from many shelters which aren't, especially when it's due to overflow from a large puppy mill or Michael Vick situation. They are *very* deserving of support, and that can be done painlessly in some cases like Amazon Smile or Kroger-chain Grocery Cards, and via eBay Giving Works (designate 10% or more of your listing to BFAS or tack on a buck or two to any eBay purchase).
"Sarah McLachlan: 'I Change The Channel' When My ASPCA Commercials Come On"
Even Sarah McLachlan changes the channel when her notoriously gut-wrenching ASPCA commercials come on. "I change the channel. I can't take it," McLachlan said. "I can't even look at it. It's just so depressing."
I do too, Sarah! Can't take it. 'Gut-wrenching' is right!
Sorry for the rant, but I'm even more passionate about shelter dogs than I am celebrity lady feet! (NO, not the same *kind* of passion, but just as strong...)
Hey, even if *that* or the Stacy Ferguson gigs fall through, I'd be happy to stay with Marina (unless you've got her all to yourself on the couch there in @FJK's thread...)
