No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters!

This year we will be holding our Second Annual Blog Hop/Fundraiser from October 28th thru October 30th(Friday through Sunday). We will be donating $1 for everyone who links up to the hop with your Halloween post letting us know how you have helped (or plan on helping) a shelter near you! That's right, just show us how you are enjoying Halloween and how you helped (or are going to help) a shelter near you and link up to the hop. 

Here are some ideas for helping:

  First of all,  if you are looking for a new pet, consider adopting a Shelter or Rescue Organization Pet!!

1. It is starting to get cold outside, gather up and donate any old blankies, towels and sheets to your local shelter.

2. Next time your Mama is buying you foodables, ask her to pick up an extra bag (or a few extra cans) to donate to your local shelter.

3. Do you have a toy maybe you didn't like, but some other doggy might,  put it in a pile to donate to a shelter.

4. Many shelters have "wish lists" on their websites. Check and see if your shelter has one and see if there is anything you or your peeps might have around the house you can donate.

5. Do you know about Amazon Smile? Every time you make an eligible purchase from Amazon Smile a portion of the proceeds goes to the charity of your choice. Click HERE to learn more!

 6. One of the ways we are helping is by donating $1 for every link to the Treats for Shelters Blog Hop along with 50 cents for every comment here at Dory's Backyard from October 28th through October 30th to the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (where we adopted Arty and Jakey).  

So...Just do a post this coming Friday, Saturday OR Sunday letting us know how you are helping or planning to help YOUR local Shelter then link up to our Blog Hop OR just make sure to stop by and leave us a comment!  

Blogville is such a F-U-N and caring  place!!!

Lots of things going on so we're glad for the reminders! Yes, Dory's pawty is going to be such massive fun!! And then the election is getting so close too! We have started going through our files and trying to sort out things. Without a secretary things got kinda crazy.
