I kind of hesitate to ask this, as it's really too close to home. For the most part, I do try and keep my personal crap out of this blog, other than cats and guns.
But here it is: I volunteer at an animal shelter. It is the only no-kill shelter in a wide radius. (Almost all of the shelter cat photos that you've seen over the last couple of years of Caturday posts have been taken there.) And it has been a tough year for the shelter.
So if you can spare some change (or a lot of it), please go here and make a donation for the critters. If you are on the Book of Face, you can go here and click on the link under the photo that says "Donation Dog". If you feel more comfortable mailing a paper check, the address is towards the bottom of this page.
It's a 501(c)(3), so your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Please, folks. If you've gotten anything out of this blog over the years, I'm asking you to please, show them some love of the cash-money kind.
And if you could mention this on your own blog, please do that.
(And if you think they're a buncha pinkos, the majority of the board has CCW permits.)
