A remarkable event striving to help animals in need is happening on Sunday, July 28, 2013. Mission PAWSible II is a partnership between Animal Advocates Alliance (AAA) and Charity Buzz that is touted to “raise critically needed dollars to fund programs to benefit homeless animals in Los Angeles.” Astoundingly, “approximately 75,000 healthy, adoptable animals are euthanized in Los Angeles County each year simply because there are too many animals and too few homes.” AAA seeks to “reduce the euthanasia rate through its humane education and rescue/adoption programs. These programs include providing humane education in local schools with an emphasis on spay/neuter, hosting mobile shelter adoptions, and rescuing animals that have been abused, neglected and/or are at risk of euthanasia.” AAA has made positive changes in LA’s Baldwin Park shelter with the plan to do so at other area shelters, including “free dog training and humane education classes, as well as subsidized spay/neuter services.” AAA needs the help of pet lovers and philanthropists on a local and worldwide basis to continue to fund their programs. If you’re in Los Angeles, please purchase a ticket to the event, donate your goods/services (I’m donating a veterinary holistic house-call consultation) to the Charity Buzz auction, or make a financial contribution. 100% of proceeds from the auction’s will be used to subsidize AAA’s programs. Additionally, each donor will be individually recognized on the online auction website and/or at the live auction event. Besides offering my services, I’ll also be covering the event for my Pet-Lebrity News column on Pet360. So, make sure to check back for photos and video of Mission PAWSible II. *Animal Advocates Alliance is a California 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to promoting the humane treatment of animals through legal advocacy, humane education initiatives, and support of animal rescue and adoption.
