Help to save the cuddly kitties and puppies!

Normally, I'm not a fan of donating to charities... I know that sounds horrible right!  Mostly because I know the administrative costs are astronomical with the larger charities, but this particular one is close to my heart because I LOVE KITTIES!!  It's no surprise, all of my fellow RH bloggers have probably met my lovely snuggle buddy Mr. Tickles.  Well, Mr. Tickles has feline asthma... and it scared me that my little cuddle kitty could die from this!  Then I thought, what about all the other kitties out there suffering from asthma that don't have loving moms or dads to take care of them and get them the medicine they need to live!

So, I'm running the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay with a group of friends who are passionate about animals and our goal is to raise $500 as a team to help support our local Animal Rescue League through Paws Over Pittsburgh.  Even $1 will help!  Click on my widget on the side of my blog to donate! Below is the story...

Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center wrote -
Welcome to Paws Over Pittsburgh, the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center's page for the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon.  We're thrilled that you have decided to step beyond yourself and include the well-being of domestic and wild animals as part of your overall training plan.  By choosing to partner with the Animal Rescue League, you will be an advocate of our mission to educate people, as well as care for and restore animals to good homes.  In return, we will partner with your training through opportunities to meet and exercise with like-minded friends, receive fun prizes for your advocacy milestones, and encourage your desire to Run for their Rescue!  

Here are some of the ways we'll use the funds you raise:
  • $30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
  • $50 will provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
  • $100 will provide behavioral training for an animal to help her find a new home more quickly.
  • $1,000 will cover the total care for an animal that stays in our shelter for one month.

  1. I used to live in Pittsburgh (born and raised and family still there!) and my childhood cat came from the Animal Rescue League!
