A Thank You Gift for Blog Readers

Happy Holidays and Wishes for Peace, Success and Joy in the coming year!

Since shelter pets (lost, abandoned, abused, orphaned furry, finned, feathered and scaly ones…did I miss any?)
are always on my mind, I’m hoping you will not only download a copy of this calendar, but share it with your family and friends as well.

Each month features a different Calendar Dog, real pets that have found new homes through Miami-Dade Animal Services Adopt A Shelter Pet program, PLUS each page also has a ‘dog tip’ or info for new or even long-time pet owners.

Just click (or double click) on this link, or on the image of HAPPY below to download the high res (3mb) printable pdf version of my 2010 Adopt A Shelter Dog Calendar.
NOTE: this is a 3 mb  pdf file. Depending on your connection speed it may take a few minutes to load. If you have any problems opening the calendar, check to be sure you have a current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader which is a free download from: www.adobe.com. If you still have trouble, please notify me via email at: debra@debracortese
and I will send the e-calendar to your email.

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.

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!)

Give her a Nature’s Energy Cortese Design Handbag
or a Gift Certificate to choose her own.
She’ll be showing it off and bragging about
what a wonderful, thoughtful guy you are 😉
Guys, dont let this happen to you!
