Adopt A Shelter Dog – 2009 Calendars Now Available!

click image to see all 12 months


There are literally thousands of animals lost or abandoned in Miami-Dade every year. Many of them are injured and need critical medical care. All of them need caring, loving families. Animal Services, the dozens of animal rescue organizations, veterinarians and individuals all over South Florida (and the world) are working to educate people and help as many of our furry, feathered, scaled friends (little angels in my opinion) as possible. This all takes time, money and mountains of compassion, patience and education.

At some point (actually around the 9th stray cat in this decade, and several abandoned dogs) I realized I could not rescue, doctor, feed and save every animal alone. What I can do, is help to create products like this calendar which will raise money for care and education programs for the animals. Many of the photos were taken by Miami-Dade Animal Services personnel and volunteers, many are of pets and rescued animals I had the pleasure to photograph.

When you purchase any of the ‘Art For The Animals’ products, 50% of the profits are donated to helping animals (and the other 50% helps the artist pay her bills and keep creating new works to help even more animals!)

In the Pet Category…Tattooed Tough Guys

Rescue Ink - tattoed tough guys saving animals
My sister sent me a link to “Rescue Ink” and I’m not sure if you have to be a New Yorker type to appreciate this, but it is definitely worth a visit if you are a pet and animal lover. What a great presentation and great work these guys are doing! Biagi is a friend of Diane’s (my sister) and she’s been rescuing animals her entire life thus far. Way to go Di! It runs in the family… must be something those Italian grandmothers put in our food 😉
