Black cat special continues at PLL
Happy holidays, Sonoma.
Hold your loved ones close this season and every day thereafter. We have had a few early holiday blessings come to us through some children. Charlotte King and Madeline Sickert, both third-graders (and Pets Lifeline summer camp alum) came to Pets Lifeline with their empty piggy bank and sandwich baggies full of their hard earned savings from doing chores at home.
Last Friday, Charlie Evans, an 8-year-old and another Pets Lifeline summer camp alumni, also brought us a sandwich baggie with all the money he had made from his lemonade stand. This was especially touching in light of current events. Humane education is alive and well and living at Pets Lifeline.
Another blessing this holiday is the adoption of Muneca by a wonderful couple who absolutely adore her. I have written many times about this dog and fortunately the diligence and unconditional love of our canine handlers saw this dog through some very difficult times. We just could not give up on this dog and her new humans are glad we did. A big thank you to Emily Charrier-Botts, David Bolling and Robbi Pengally of this wonderful paper for writing that warm-hearted story on Muneca. We believe in the power of love here and it proved itself with this happy ending.
Another happy ending was the great success of our Miracle on Eighth Street event at Ramekins on Dec. 9. Thanks to our wonderful friends and supporters, we raised $60,000 for the shelter at the event. I like to send a message of gratitude to our chefs, to those who contributed to our fund a need, folks who donated items for both our silent and live auction and to our generous wineries that donated the libations.
It was scrumptious evening and our friend, Ed Vaughn, Santa’s little helper himself, led the live auction and fund a need with the style, humor and grace he brings to everything he does. And lest we forget his gorgeous wife, Debra, who records all the information.
The Vaughn family also foster kittens for us when needed and we are fortunate indeed to have them as our friends. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, but would like to support the shelter during the holidays, feel free to go to our website, petslifeline.org and make a donation to a miracle. Thank you!
We have a $30 cat special going on for all the black and tuxedo cat lovers. From now through January, you can take a loveable black and/or tuxedo cat home for the holidays. Don’t let these sweet creatures spend their holidays in a shelter.
We have some precious kitteens just waiting for you. Cindy, the affectionate black cat, Iggy the playful one, Russell the cute tuxedo, Willie a sweet black and white with a black nose, Brenna, Hamilton and others that are just waiting to meet you. Come on down and sit in our community cat or kitten room and get to know them. As I always say, the animals pick us, we are just there to receive and care for them.
Be safe for the holidays. Wag till your heart’s content and woof only when necessary. Catch you in the new year. Peace!
