BENEFITING: BUCKS COUNTY SOCIETY FOR PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS

EVENT DATE: Aug 24, 2012

Vince Camiolo

THE STORY:

Friday, August 24 will mark the third anniversary of Lance Dogstrong's scheduled execution. His only crime: Being caught on the streets of Bakersfield, Calif. without a human companion to claim him.

Lance was lucky enough to be scooped up by a private rescue days before he was scheduled to be "destroyed." Natalie and I were equally as lucky for the opportunity to welcome him into our home, almost immediately.

If you've had the pleasure of spending even only a few minutes with Lance, you know a deep affection for him is instant. The joy and companionship he brings to us and our home is imeasurable. It's heartbreaking to imagine someone looking into his eyes and deeming him disposable.

Our story is a happy one. Unfortunately not every animal with the potential to be a integral member of a loving family has a story like Lance's. Many (most) meet the fate for which Lance was scheduled on August 24, 2009.

Shelters, humane societies, private rescues, etc. are doing what they can to help homeless companion animals, like Lance was, find homes, and homes with a missing piece find the love of a companion animal. But those organizations can always use help.  

On this-coming Friday, August 24, following the celebration of the privilege of continuning to experience the joy of Lance's companionship, I, along with my friend Luke (also a shelter dog companion) will embark on a weekend-long, self-supported 100-plus mile mountain bike ride over some of the most challenging terrain on the east coast.

Although our canine riding partners will be getting the weekend off as we roll through this demanding trip, I would like to take this opportunity to help other humans experience what we get to experience on a daily basis.

I've chosen the Bucks County SPCA, a local-to-me shelter, as the benefactor of this fundraiser.

Every cent donated is going to the Bucks County SPCA to support their effort of "sheltering of stray or unwanted animals, placing all adoptable animals into permanent homes, and working with our state legislature to improve upon Pennsylvania's Animal Laws."

The Bucks County SPCA is a totally independent organization and replies soley on donations.

UPDATES:
