Thank you guys for coming to Love Meow. I have 4 rescue cats: Jackie, Lucy Shadow and Flip. They are my motivation for this blog. It’s a pawsome feeling to see we come together to share our stories and thoughts about these lovely furry creatures.
Cats are wonderful and I can never get tired of telling people that. Their photos and videos keep us entertained and happy whenever we need a stress reliever. They never fail to bring joy and sunshine into our lives, but we should never forget about the hundreds of thousands of homeless cats that are eager to find a permanent home.
I have covered many stories about animal rescues and shelters such as the Cat House on the Kings, Tabby’s Place, Richmond Animal Protection Society, and many more. I even got in touch with Lynea Lattanzio from the Cat House on the Kings and learned about what a dedicated animal rescuer she is. Their stories and your stories have inspired me to step up and do what I can to help.
I thought about what I could do through blogging to help raise the awareness of animal rescue and adoption and to help to shelters that are trying so hard to save hundreds of thousands of lives.
There is a project called “FreeRice” which goal is to help end hunger. Basically you play a vocabulary game on their website, and every time you get an answer right, they will donate 10 grains of rice. I think it is a great idea and I want to do something similar for animals.
I started a commentathon project. Here is how it works:
- For every comment you make on the Love Meow website => I will donate 5 cents from my own pocket to the cause
(You can leave as many comments as you’d like, but no spam please)
All the funds will go to an animal shelter of your choice. You can nominate a shelter to receive my donation and get featured on Love Meow. Click this link to send me their website URL or contact information. The animal shelter must be a government proved charitable organization such as a US 501(c)(3) non profit corporation or a charitable non-profit organization that is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency.
I would definitely like to increase the funds. There are a lot of costs that go into running and maintaining the blog, but I am doing what I can to keep the program going. Hopefully I can do more later. Thank you all for all your support.
There is a fundraising meter on the sidebar for you guys to keep tabs on it.
Remember to visit your local animal shelters to make a donation or drop off some food.
