My fiancé and I are looking to adopt a dog. Not just any dog, but the right one for us. And we want to adopt from a shelter… so far, we’ve visited four shelters looking for the one that we can agree on. I don’t mind the time because this is an animal that we will be taking care of for years.
The last shelter we were at, I saw something very amazing. A man brought in his beloved dog because he had lost his job and couldn’t afford to feed her. And I watched the way the dog tried to comfort him by nuzzling his hand, by licking away his tears. I was just so ready to say we’ll give this dog a home until you get on your feet, when something just short of a miracle happened. The shelter gave him a referral to a pet food pantry.
The economy isn’t improving. Food shelters are begging for help to feed everybody- especially donations of tuna and beef stew. This is food easily turned into pet food. More and more families are facing the problem of how to feed themselves and their pets. Let’s make Thanksgiving a little extra special this year for the pet food banks.
What I want to do is set up a fan auction where I have writers, artist, crafters, icon makers and mix makers auctioning their services for a donation to the pet food pantry of their choice. This is how I need help- first, please boost the signal to every fan community you know of, so I can get traffic to fanslovepets. Second- that fiancé I mentioned? Our wedding date is 12/18- I need co-maintainers, people who maybe know what they are doing. Third- I need writers, crafters, artist, music mixers to donate their time and energy.
Fourth- I need somebody to really give me a list of current popular fandoms. And the last thing I need- a good icon.
