BENEFITING: ANIMAL RESCUE NEW ORLEANS INC
Here's the deal. I don't really like getting presents. Sure, getting a surprise is nice but I pretty much have everything I need to make me happy. What makes me REALLY happy is being able to help others. So, after being inspired by my good friend Diane Small who "donated" her birthday, I'm going to do the same thing.
I'd like to raise money for Animal Rescue New Orleans. ARNO was the first responder after Hurricane Katrina, taking in abandoned or lost animals and setting up feeding stations for animals that had gotten loose during the storms. They rely heavily on volunteers to care for the animals and take them for walks, and are always in need of supplies.
ARNO is currently the only no-kill shelter in New Orleans and needs all the help they can get right now, so please join me in raising some cash!
This fundraiser is also in honour of my darling Milo, who was adopted from ARNO. He was my best friend for almost year, but sadly died from Pythium. He was an incredible advocate for shelter pets and never met a dog, cat or human he didn't like. So please donate in his memory and remember to adopt, don't shop! When you adopt from a shelter you're saving two lives, the life of the animal you take home and the life of the animal you make room for.
