Beagle Freedom Project!

Hello friends!

Sorry it has been a while since I last posted, but I have been a traveling man! I was visiting family in Virginia and Indiana and then entertained guests up here in Chicago! Phew! Am I tired!!

Anyway, was browsing Facebook this morning and saw some wonderful posts about a pack of beagles that were recently rescued from their lives as lab rats. The Beagle Freedom Project (http://beaglefreedomproject.org/) is an awesome organization that helps to find lab beagles loving homes after their time in the lab is up. Recently 10 beagles were rescued from a lab in the San Diego area and all are looking for loving homes- so if you or someone you know may be interested, check them out! Here’s a great video of the gang in the outdoors!!! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10150968567838764

According to their website, Beagle Freedom Project is a service of Animal Rescue, Media & Education (ARME). Founded in 2004, ARME is a nonprofit advocacy group created to eliminate the suffering of all animals through rescue, public education and outreach. ARME has found homes for thousands of homeless and abandoned animals! Woohoo!!

Ok- all for now as I am headed to Beaglefest by Midewest Beagle Rescue, Education and Welfare in Park Ridge, Illinois! So excited! Barroooooo!

What happens to your pet if something happens to you?

 

Hi Friends!

Winky here! Recently my mom was looking through the albums on Facebook of pets in need of adoption/foster/rescue and she noticed that there were quite a few that had ended up in shelters/pounds because their owner had passed away or was in the hospital and the family didn’t know what else to do.

So as a beloved pet, I would like to ask you all to think through who would take care of your pets if something were to happen to you, and then make sure you discuss it with your family and friends. And if you have a will, add the instructions into your will!

I also found some nifty cards online that you can print out, fill out and put in your wallet next to your driver’s license that will give instructions as to who should be contacted in the event of an emergency. I am including a few links that offer such cards- and all are free!!

So if you love your pets like I know you do, please take just a couple minutes to make a card, and be sure to bring up the topic with family and friends! Your pets will thank you!!! :)
