Pet Photo Contest closes today . . . thank you for your support!

Standard

While today is our official deadline, I will say we will definitely take additional photos over the next few days. We want to have plenty for the calendar! I want this to be the most gorgeous one yet! 😀 Still hoping for some photos from Guyity now that she’s back home.   Digital copies can be sent to butlercountyhumanesociety@gmail.com

A friendly reminder from our favorite green-eyed smiling puppy dog.

So far, $300 has been donated by our generous blog readers which is a tremendous help in covering the expenses incurred in have the calendar assembled and printed by the company we use. We could probably have it done a little cheaper elsewhere, but I don’t think the quality would be as good.  My friend Betsy has submitted 13 photos and already bought 15 calendars to give away as gifts–that’s an animal lover putting her money where her heart is! We appreciate all animal lovers both near and far. I don’t know how much we’ve collected in total re entry fees, but this adds up to over $500 we’ve already taken in and the calendar hasn’t been put together yet! Whoo-hoo!

Because of issues with our current BCHS website (mainly the fact it’s a effing nightmare in terms of user-friendliness and yours truly will probably have to start from scratch to build a new one when she has the time) we are still taking donations and entry frees for photos submitted through the “donate” button here on my page. Checks and hard copy photos can also be sent to our address: Butler County Humane Society Pet Photo Contest, PO Box 264, Greenville, AL 36037.

And now, here’s a video from one of the animal rescue groups featuring some homeless animals from right here in Butler County on their way to forever homes in other states. I do love a happy ending, don’t you? 😀

I have one more non-RA post to throw up, and then I will get back to Mr. Armitage. Ah . . .  glad I don’t have anywhere to go today. Especially as it’s now thundering and about to rain yet again.

Just had to share this with y’all.

This turned up on Facebook today–a posting originally made by one of the dog rescues our humane society works with to find families for homeless animals here in the county. This is my wonderful cousin by marriage to whom I have referred to in the past, and her equally wonderful assistant Tommy. And yes, they are definitely people who make a difference. God bless them!
**PEOPLE WHO MAKE A DIFFERENCE** I met Tommy when I was in Alabama. He helps Kandys with our dogs who are boarded at her facility. Tommy goes above and beyond f.or our homeless dogs (and cats). He puts in so many extra hours of overtime UNPAID! He does this because of his love for the dogs. He interacts with them which helps me write bios for petfinder. Tommy became particularly attached to this poor mangey american bulldog named, Petey. Petey was incredibly itchy. Tommy would take care of him. Although Tommy was sad to see Petey go into rescue, he still keeps in touch with his whereabouts. My favorite thing about Tommy is watching and listening to him interact with the dogs. He talks to them conversationally while he cleans their kennels. He’s just such a natural. People like Tommy are hard to come by, and we are so grateful for everything he does for the dogs.
