Is Your Dog the Love of Your Life?
Help Us Make Other Dogs as Lucky
During our Have a Heart for Chained Dogs
2010 Valentine Campaign
Join us February 7-14th for Have a Heart for Chained Dogs Week. OUR GOAL in our 8th Season is to SEND OUT 15,000 VALENTINES TO CHAINED or PENNED DOGS.
We are striving to raise awareness for chained and penned dogs in a positive way...by delivering Valentines, a brochure and a treat coupon to dogs living outside all over the U.S. and into other countries where we have representation, such as Canada and England.
Here's where you come in:
1. Make Valentines. Teachers, Students, Scout Leaders, Group Leaders, Individuals please make Valentines! Please note: Sizes should be no biggern than 4"x8.5" so they can fit in a mailing envelope. We're asking you to stress quality over quantity this year...we'd rather have 15,000 awesome valentines that REALLY hit home with dog caretakers. To see what others have done, see the link above. The valentines can say anything along the lines of 'Bring us into the home and family.' Send them to us by February 5th at P.O. Box 23, Tipton, PA 16684.
2. Mail Coupons for Free or Reduced Cost Treats or Dogfood. Last year we did not have enough treat coupons to fill all the Valentines. Can you help us out this year by mailing any and all treat or dogfood coupons you have to us at P.O. Box 23, Tipton, PA 16684?3. Send addresses for Chained or Penned Dogs. This is so CRUCIAL! Please, take the time to find out the address of that chained or penned dog near you, even though it takes a little time...To make our goal, we need to mail at least 15,000 Valentines. Send addresses via mail, call 877.636.1408 to report addresses, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. or fill out the form, below (preferred). You remain anonymous!(see website for form)

I've posted about Roger before and just to update you, he's doing very well and has gained some weight. He is a shelter favorite because he is easy to walk and is an all around nice dog. He may be around 8 years old, but he's got a lot of good energy and LOVES to go for walks.
Then there is Lucky, now called Loki. He is a really cool dog who just needs a bit of training and understanding. He is a BIG puppy full of energy and also full of love. He is so cute with his little under bite. Love him!
We have so many wonderful Pitbulls waiting for homes at West LA, as usual. Here are a few who are really urgent!
As usual, here are some great videos by Debbie Fan, volunteer extraordinaire!
