“Wings of Rescue” to Airlift 250 Dogs to Loving Homes This Friday from Van Nuys Airport – Volunteers Needed 12/7/12

The title speaks true. An organization called Wings of Rescue and another called S.T.A.R.T. (Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team) have partnered to make something incredible happen. Both organizations share a mission of saving dogs from death row and giving them a chance at beautiful lives in other places where they are WANTED. In fact, Wings of Rescue has saved 2,687 dogs since its inception. Bravo!

Air transport by private pilots is faster and less stressful on the dogs as opposed to being handled as “cargo” by commercial airliners. Also, since Wings of Rescue pilots are volunteers, this makes the saving of these precious souls even more possible due to lower costs to the rescue organizations.

 

Let’s get to the point!

 

250 dogs have received a holiday reprieve from a sure death sentence and will be transported via private planes to safety in their new homes in time for the holidays.

 

Volunteers Needed to: Play, Walk, and load the dogs up for take-off!

When: Friday, December 7, 2012 @ 830AM-1030AM at the Van Nuys Airport:

Adopt Instead of Shop, Get Rewarded at Dealwagger.com

     

          While researching animal rescues and charities to participate in receiving donations from a portion of each of our daily deal sales, I came across a wonderful story about an 8 year old girl named Abbey who lives in Ohio, who donates her time and allowance money to help care for homeless animals. With the guidance of her parents, the little lady decided to take her motivation a step further by calling on her community to join her by writing a letter to her local publication, the Chillicothe Gazette, encouraging people to help find local pets home and care from places like the Humane Society.

          Abbey exclaims, “I am trying my hardest to get dogs and cats at the human(e) society homes, so please help!” She continues, “Bring cat food, cat litter, food bowls, dog and cat toys and dog food, but most of all please adopt”
        
       Abbey really inspired us. That is the reason why we decided to offer a special promo code for those new and old pet owners who have decided to rescue a pet, rather than shopping or going through a breeder. Hopefully for those rescuing a pet for the first time, we will be able to help you afford a mini-shopping spree of essential items for your new baby to settle in at their new home. Abbey’s love for animals stems from her home and family life. Her family has two dogs — Mia and Maddy — and four cats: Sissy, Gus, Jake and Mary. Her parents admit, ”We’ve been supportive, but these things are her idea, and she does all the work.We’re very proud of her.”

Ortho Mattress Designs and Builds Pet Beds- FREE w/ Adoption in L.A.

         
            Not that I am not a mattress aficionado, but I have done my share of mattress shopping in the Los Angeles area. There is a popular mattress company that has been around since 1957 and has tons of locations in Los Angeles, known as Ortho Mattress. I have personally slept on Ortho mattresses and they are very well-made. I just read about a really great campaign that Ortho has become a part of and I thought it was worthwhile to share with our community.
Did you say FREE pet beds?
           On Friday, December 9, Ortho Mattress is partnering with LA County Department of Animal Care & Control for a dog adoption event at their 8161 Beverly Blvd. store from 10AM-1PM.  The event will kick off Ortho Mattress’ larger Holiday Adopt-a-Thon campaign in conjuction with LA County, the City of Los Angeles Animal Services and Found Animals. If you adopt a dog, you get a free made-in-Los Angeles Ortho pet bed. A total of over 500 free beds will be given away during the three-week program.
          
            Anyone interested in adopting a pet in the Los Angeles area should come out to the kickoff event at the Beverly Blvd store, visit a participating shelter, or attend the Whisker Wonderland adopt-a-thon on Saturday, Dec. 17, which takes place at 16 locations throughout Los Angeles county (presented by FoundAnimals.com) All three of these opportunities come with giving a dog a new life and a free, new super-comfy bed.
