Purses sought for Tailwags and Handbags
Happy March Sonoma.
Spring is in the air and I look forward to the official equinox on March 20, and daylight saving on March 10. Yay!
More light in the day.
I spoke last time of our big dogs Scarlett and Charlie. I am happy to say that Scarlett has since found her humans and is happily in her new home. Charlie, our German shepherd mix, is still here and would love to meet you. And for all your German shepherd fans out there, we also have two other beautiful blond shepherd mixes. Mikey is a sweet guy who is very shy. He seems to be coming out of his shell more and more every day and has potential to be a nice social dog. Hainstock, another blondish red shepherd mix, is a very handsome guy who loves to play ball, run and be petted.
Then of course, our newest addition is a family of small dogs that someone found running around in Diamond A. A mama, papa and a pup – cute little gold and white Jack Russell mixes. They are still on their stray time, but will be up for adoption soon, so check the website at petslifeline.org.
Please come meet Sanford and Petey who are our longer term residents (both have been here for four months) and we hope won’t have to spend to much more time here. Both very sweet loveable chihuahua mixes.
Luckily, our cats have been getting adopted at a higher rate with our $30 special, which continues throughout March. We still have some wonderful cats and kiteens available for someone who is just looking for some unconditional love.
We have some great events coming up that I know you’ll want to hear about. Tickets are on sale today for our third annual Tailwags and Handbags fundraiser on Friday, April 19, at the General’s Daughter. This event grows in popularity every year. What could be better that a Friday afternoon ladies luncheon and purse shopping event? Come spend a couple of hours and walk away with a full belly, some gorgeous purses and the satisfaction of knowing that the proceeds go to benefit the homeless and abandoned animals in your community.
If you want to donate purses, please drop by the shelter during our open hours, Tuesday to Friday from noon to 5 p.m. or Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Also, you can bring your donation by at Yappy Hour at the Annex Wine Bar at 865 W. Napa St., where we hang out on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. Our gal, Carol, will be there with a talwaggin’ pooch.
Also, we’ll have a bin at Sisters Consignment Shop at 117 W. Napa St., next to the Index-Tribune’s office just off the Plaza, so drop by your new or gently used designer or vintage purses there.
I have registered for the Sonoma Napa Gran Fondo bike event on May 18 this year. I did this last year and it was a blast. Of course, I only signed up for the mini-fondo (11 miles) as there is no way I’d make it up over Trinity on my vintage 3-speed Schwinn, but perhaps some of you might. Come be on the Pets Lifeline team and ride the course that suits you best, there are three to choose from. It’s a fun day with ride levels for both kids and adults. Come and ride for the animals and get some fresh air and exercise to boot. There is a big party in the Plaza all day after the ride with the best of Sonoma community spirit, food and music. Just go to echelongranfondo.com to sign up. If you have any questions give me a call at 996-4577.
With a wag and woof, I bid you adieu!
