Help Beetle Heal

Every year for Christmas we sponsor animals in the North Shore Animal League’s Help Me Heal program in the names of my parents and grandparents. As a result we get a lot of updates about all the Help Me Heal pets, and yesterday this beautiful little kitten with a sad story appeared in my inbox. We immediately fell in love with that sweet little face.

Beetle, as the NSAL has named him, was thrown from a moving vehicle and suffered numerous injuries that will take months to recover from. Lucky for him he was taken in by the largest no-kill shelter in the world! He will be treated at the Animal League for as long as it takes to get back on his feet. If you are able, please consider making a contribution to Beetle’s recovery, or any one of the NSAL’s wonderful programs. Even just sharing this link and getting the word out can help these animals in need.

Adopt Your Doggelganger

Well, if you live in New Zealand that is. But this incredibly fun facial recognition software by NEC Technology and sponsored by Pedigree is no doubt going be in demand at American shelters. This interactive program takes your photo, then pairs you up with your “doggelganger” – a dog available for adoption that also shares your facial features.

Now certified in pet first aid and CPR!

Today we got certified in pet first aid and CPR through  the American Safety and Health Institute via the 92nd Street Y. We had a great time with our instructor and classmates, and are proud to be furthering our commitment to the care of your pets.
