#GivingTuesday Goes To The Dogs

Tomorrow is a big day for non-profit organizations across the country.

It’s GIVING TUESDAY!

This is the 7th year of the movement and its ripple effect continues to grow. The idea is simple…we spend so much money over the holidays, why not spend some where it matters most…helping others in need!

Now let’s be honest, Giving Tuesday should be 365 days a year…but I’ll take 1 day as a start =)

So that leads me to the point of this post. Most of my friends are dogs, cats or dog and cat rescuers and they need your help! 501C3 organizations (also known as non-profits) do not generally make ANY money. They spend it to better the world and rely solely on donations. That’s why tomorrow is so vital to all of them.

In fact, many organizations are now utilizing “matching” grants to help your money make even more of an impact. For example, Facebook will be matching up to $7 Million dollars of donations made on their site tomorrow…WOW!

Training Tricks from a Non-Trainer

I may not be a dog trainer, but I’ve learned a thing or two over the MANY years of fostering! So today I wanted to share a few of my favorite products that have helped me with my dogs! Please watch below!

Dog Walking in the Dark? That’s SOOO last year!

“All the leaves are turning brown and the sky is gray…”

Well … that might be a little dramatic BUT it is starting to get darker earlier and that means those nighttime walks require a little extra help!

Have no fear, I’ve found a few favorite products to help keep you AND your four-legged family member safe!

PACT For Animals: Helping Military and Pets Stay Together

Imagine this…you get the call to serve our Country and you then realize you don’t have anyone or anywhere for your beloved pet to go? It’s a sad reality for thousands of our Military hero’s, who feel there’s no other option than to bring their four-legged family members to a local shelter.

That’s where PACT For Animals comes in. PACT is a non-profit organization that helps find temporary foster homes for pets whose parents are deployed or sent to Military training.

Since 2011, they’ve helped almost 1,000 animals stay safe and out of the shelter system. In turn, they’ve helped hundreds of service members have peace of mind while away fighting for our freedom.
