The tough economy impacts everyone. Many shelters and rescues are reporting lower donations and also a higher influx of pets whose owners can't afford to take care of them any longer or who have lost their house and can no longer keep a pet.
Lots of people (and pets) have told me they want to help with my efforts but due to the economy, things are tight. That gave me an idea: My FURPOWER $1 Donation Challenge.
What if all of my blog readers and all of my Twitter followers contributed just ONE DOLLAR to our animal welfare organization of the month, Animals in Distress? (For more about Animals in Distress, see below). Imagine what we can do if we each contribute a tiny bit, without breaking any of our mousy banks!
I mean, a whole big bag of cat treats is really just a bunch of individual cat treats that got together, right?
AND to make the challenge even more fun, if you make a dollar donation you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free FURminator deshedding tool from one of my sponsors, FURminator, Inc. deShedding Products.
For your dollar donation, you’ll get one entry. But if you want to donate more than a dollar, for each $5 increment you donate you’ll get another entry into the drawing. So, if you send $5 you’ll get two entries, $10 you’ll get three entries, etc.
Everybody wins, especially the animals.

About Animals in Distress
Submitted by our blog reader, John, as our March donation recipient, Animals in Distress (AID) is a non-profit, tax deductible sanctuary for animals who have little or no hope elsewhere. Its programs are designed to prevent suffering and to save lives. They believe that there is a special home somewhere for every pet if there is enough time to find it. They keep every animal admitted, providing medical care, behavioral rehabilitation, good food, shelter, and, most important of all, love, until a suitable new home can be found.
