Warning: Today’s post is a bit on the serious side.
“Murphy was one of three dogs confined to a backyard by an owner who had stopped feeding them for months simply because he didn’t want them anymore. The only shelter from the sun and rain was one doghouse– the door now blocked by the body of a dog that recently died of starvation.
Through the life saving compassion of a neighbor who reported the neglect, Humane Officers were able to respond, rescue Murphy and his friend, and bring the owner to justice. The veterinarian who treated Murphy upon his rescue reported that in 25 years he’d never seen a dog so infested with ticks and fleas. Murphy and his surviving dog friend were covered by so many ticks and fleas that they were anemic.
Murphy was immediately placed into a foster home where he began his long recovery. He surprised his foster parents with his immediate trusting and loving personality towards all people, dogs and cats, demonstrating the true resiliency of the animal spirit. Murphy is now a happy, healthy and loved member of a family, living the life that all animals deserve.”
Here’s the plan:
Starting today, Tuesday, April 14th through the end of the month, I’m going to donate 50% of the first month’s dues for every new sign up for our Land Park Boot Camp to the Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA).
100% of this money will go towards ensuring the humane treatment of animals in the Sacramento area.
I’m adding two new camp times – 6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays – to accommodate for new members and to help as many pets as possible.
I’m calling this the ‘Help A Pet In Need’ charity drive and the goal is to raise $1000 over the next 17 days, so I’m really going to need your help!
And for a little added incentive, I’m going to give a free month of unlimited boot camp – a $200 value – to the person who brings in the most referrals.
I’ll update you with our progress (total amount raised) and who’s got the most referrals every week for the rest of the month.
Thanks for your help in advance!
P.S. If you know anyone who might be interested in this charity drive, please give a call, send an email, post on Facebook, and help spread the word!
