They call me Lishy

This is me modelling my manly new carrier. Don't I look like the toughest mancat (in-training) on the block!
Our friends at directed us to a proposal from Banfield Charitable Trust that is in the running for a $250 ooo grant from Pepsi's Good Ideas. The funding would enable them to establish and support programs in non-profit hospices that would enable patients to keep their pets with them. It would help them obtain vet care, grooming and pet food, and when people cross the Bridge would help find a home for pets left behind. As an indicator of how much programs like this are needed, over 100 hospices have contacted Banfield about it in only 9 months.

To support Banfield, you can . They are currently ranked 12th. Let's see if we can get them across the line!

I am going over to that site right now! That sounds like such an excellent program. I can't imagine being sick and not having your beloved four legged friend by your side as well.

And I am thinking real men can wear pink...or at least sit in a pink carrier! :)

Have a lovely day!

Oh, thank you, thank you, Lishy, for continuing to spread the word!

That's a very worthwhile cause. Our elderly neighbours are all worried about their pets who will be left homeless if they die.

The verification word is 'frail'
