Ruby Says Thank You

Rescued dog gets a second chance
Happy Ruby 2016
Thanks to Hauspanther and Only Natural Pet for sponsoring my awards for Best Cause Blog and Best Written Blog Post. I am thrilled that Safe Humane Chicago and Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control will each receive $500! 
Safe Humane Chicago and Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control saved Ruby and Ruby in turn saved us after the heartbreak of losing Pip in 2013. I could not be more happy and grateful to be part of this donation to both of these amazing and deserving organizations.

Sad Ruby 2013
Ruby is a Safe Humane Chicago Court Case Dog.  The court case dog program includes dogs and cats who are part of a criminal investigation as a result of severe abuse and neglect. In the past, these animals were considered evidence and often euthanized after their cases were settled. Thanks to Safe Humane Chicago they now receive medical care, training, and socialization. Once their cases are settled, they are transferred to partner rescues and shelters and in Ruby's case, Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control.  

This weekend I am hosting a party to celebrate my awards AND raise additional funds for both Safe Humane and FCACC. My hope is to double the donation so both organizations receive $1,000. If you would like to help, you can make a donation to Safe Humane Chicago and Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control on their websites.  Just make sure to tell them that Miss Ruby sent you (and please also let me know so I can thank you).


UPDATE 7/10/6: I successfully doubled both sponsor donations and raised an additional $600 for both organizations. Thank you for the shares and comments!
