How The WSPCA Is Helping Haiti's Dogs One Year Later

I'm sure you all remember that it was just over a year ago that the devasting earthquake hit Haiti, and millions of lives, both human and animal were forever changed.
We're glad to know that the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPCA) has been actively helping to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home the animals that were impacted. Here's a recent video that this fabulous organization put together to draw attention to the good work they've been doing, and why they still need your support.

In fact, the ASPCA has awarded a new grant of $50,000 to the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH), bringing the total funding provided by the ASPCA to support ARCH's efforts to $ 110,000. ARCH is headed by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the WSPCA.

Speaking of helping animals, or at least helping to ensure their saftey, Parental Unit wrote a piece on how to prepare you and your pooch for a dog park visit. It was published yesterday on the BlogPaws website and another installment to round out these tips will be published in another week or so. Check it out here: www.blogpaws.com/2011/01/the-dog-park-craze-the-good-the-bad-and-the-sometimes-ugly.html

We hope you enjoy! In the meantime, I'm still waiting for my first walk today, let alone a romp in a dog park...Hello Parental Unit?

We just visited your blog, and we were noticing... you look a little like Trixie! Trixie wrote a whole blog post about not really knowing what kind of dog she is, since she was found as a stray. So, maybe you can give us a clue! We know you're a mutt just like all of us, but do you know your mix at all???

Hi ya Bocci!
Mom and me are so glad that there are people even worldwide that are helping us pets out. The video made mom cry, especially the end with the kids and their pets. We were happy to see "happy endings."

Woof!
