SPCA’s March for the Animals is just one month away. Have you registered yet? Don’t miss this opportunity to help the animals of our community while having fun on an early fall walk. This is a critical fundraiser for the SPCA of Tompkins County and they need all hands on deck. In a few days, I’ll tell you how you can sponsor me in the walk if you aren’t able to participate in the March yourself.
You still have a day to make donations to deduct on your 2008 taxes. Beaded Tail has posted a great entry on the ins and outs and provided suggestions for folks whose budget may be smaller than usual during these difficult times.

Animal Place, a farm animal sanctuary in Vacaville, CA, urgently needs to move in order to upgrade its facilities for the health and safety of its animals and to have more space to accommodate a larger number of rescues. Information about the move is available on their website here.
(at left with one of the cows at Animal Place), one of the great people I’ve met on Etsy
, runs Daisy Wares
, and is a member of Vegan Etsy
for Animals. She donates a portion of her sales to Animal Place and is an untiring advocate for animals. This month, she, along with the Bay Area Vegetarians Group, is hosting a fundraiser to help raise money for the down payment
on new land for Animal Place. (I wish I could go–it sounds like so much fun!)
For those of us, like myself, who are too far to attend the fundraiser, we can still help by donating vegan items to sell at the fundraiser or by donating money directly to Animal Place
. If you are interested in donating an item, please let me know, and I will get you in touch with Roni
This is a great organization that does so much good for the animals. Please help!
