Why SHOULD You Vote for Angel in the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest?

Posted by apwood on January 30, 2009

Because it is for a great cause!

Hi! My pet has something to ask you: Will you vote for her in the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest – and help save other pets’ lives at the same time?

See my pet’s picture and message below. Helping animals is really important to me, and your donation will not only help my pet in the contest, but will save pets’ lives by reducing pet overpopulation. Thanks!

Angel Marie Butler

Hi!

I’m Angel Marie Butler. The person who takes care of me, Amy, has entered me in The Humane Society of the United States’ and Humane Society International’s Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest.

Now I need your vote to help me win some cool prizes — and to help me raise critical funds for spaying and neutering to control pet overpopulation. Go here to vote for me by making a small donation to my sponsored charity!

To celebrate the 15th annual Spay Day on February 24, 2009, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International are telling everyone how spaying and neutering improves pets’ lives. In addition to making pets better, more affectionate companions, spaying and neutering helps animals live longer and healthier.

To enter the photo contest, my caregiver submitted this picture and wrote a few nice words about me. The rest is up to you: This is one contest in which you can “buy” votes — and that’s exactly what I’m asking you to do. In this contest, every US $1 you donate in my name both supports spay/neuter and awards me one vote in the contest! If I finish in the top 500, I’ll win some sweet prizes.

I’d appreciate your vote and donation today, but if you’d like to enter your own pet in the contest, then please do—I can handle some friendly competition! And if you want to stay on top of how I am doing in the contest, visit the Search Pets page and search for me by name.

You can now also find me on Facebook! You can share my entry with your family and friends — on Facebook.

Enter your pet in the contest and donate to vote today. You may enter the contest until 5 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 27, 2009; voting ends at midnight, Eastern Time, on March 6, 2009.

Sincerely,
Angel Marie Butler

Why SHOULD YOU Help Shut Down Puppy Mills?

Posted by apwood on April 4, 2008

Dear Friend,

Do you know about puppy mills? If you don’t — and even if you do — then you’ve got to watch this undercover video:

Puppy mills are large scale operations that force breeder dogs to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for puppies. Puppies sold in pet stores or through Internet sites come from places filled with suffering, disease, malnutrition, and loneliness. Even the puppies themselves are often prone to a variety of diseases. Some die within days or weeks of purchase.

The Humane Society of the United States is working to stop puppy mills and they need your help.

Please watch this short video that exposes the cruelty of puppy mills. Then, you can take action by pledging to stop supporting the retailers that perpetuate cruel breeding practices.

Thanks for taking action!

I signed up today after my friend Carey sent me this video – this is the email to share to let others know about this travesty.You can also learn more on Oprah today – her show is about Puppy Mills.
