Get your red-hot dog license plates right here! Save Lives!

Dear Friends:

Roughly three months ago, we unveiled the California Spay and Neuter Specialty License Plate (a.k.a. the Pet Lovers Plate) and announced that it was available for pre-order. Needless to say, we are excited about the response, but we need your help. As of today, we currently received approximately 1,600 pre-orders, and while it’s not the 7,500 that’s required, we’re well on our way!

What can YOU do to help?

1. Volunteer to work a table at an event. We have events coming up all over the state, and need volunteers. Please email me at info@caspayplate.com if you will help.

2. Tell your friends, family and business associates about the plate!

3. Place a web banner advertising the plate on YOUR website or Facebook page! (Banners can be found on www.caspayplate.com)

4. Send an email to all of your pet-loving contacts!

5. Email us at info@caspayplate.com if you would like us to send you some brochures or a banner(s). Distribute them at your local car wash, hair salon, or dry cleaners, etc. and help spread the word!

Here’s what we are doing:

1. We will continue to advertise and promote the plate throughout California.

2. We will continue collecting pre-orders until we reach 7,500.
This step of the process could take months, and is solely based on how quickly we receive the requisite number of pre-orders.

3. Once 7,500 pre-orders have been placed, the DMV will be notified and will begin the processing and production of the plates.
Like step 2, this step could also take a number of months.

4. The DMV will contact the pet lovers that ordered the new plates regarding personalization or when they are ready for pick-up at the DMV location you selected on your pre-order.

Please help us reach our goal and buy your plate today if you haven’t already. Also, please offer to volunteer and help us spread the word at various events throughout the state. Proceeds from the plate will provide funding for free or low-cost spay & neuter surgeries across California, and also help to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering.

Kindest regards,

RESCUED!!! Ghost Dog, Luke A4183774 at the Downey Shelter


Meet Luke.

This one photo of him tells the story of a thousand words.

The story of heartache, despair, abuse and neglect.

Please help him!!!!

Charlotte Fails is tracking pledges and you can email her:

It's Chow time! Two beauties, mother and son A1149450 & A1149452

Momma Malina (A1149450, 6 years old) and her son Mikey (A1149452, 2 years old, now on meds for URI), both a bit shy initially, are recovering from the shock of being left behind at the shelter. It's a cruel fate for two tender dogs who had always been together. Yet these two have the quiet composure and subtle demeanor that has allowed them to interact with new dogs and new people -- and both have scored 100%!!! Momma Malina will now come up to the front of her kennel when we approach -- and Mikey never fails to give us his great big grin!!! We've had them out a few times and they have been polite, courteous and oh-so-huggable!!!!! What joy they promise to bring to their new guardian. If you can help save their lives, please call the South L.A. shelter at once (213) 485-0117 or -0119. And kindly let us know that they are looking up at you with hope for the future.

Many thanks, Andrea & Mindy

Family Favs at West LA today! Wonderful dogs to adopt...

Baby A1134798, 3 years old
This dog is a real winner. She has a wonderful disposition and temperament. She grew up around kids and lived the family life. It's so sad to think of her at the shelter missing her family. Lucky for Baby, she has a guardian angel who is tracking her progress and making sure she is safe.

Baby is a mellow girl. Loves all people, adults and kids alike! She would be a great dog for anyone and any family. Come meet her today at the WLA shelter.

Priscilla A1127452, 6 years old
This lady is so sweet. Priscilla has been at the shelter for what seems like forever. However, this lady has such a great temperament that she hasn't lost her sparkle. Lots of the time Priscilla is sleeping in her kennel and relaxing. Bad thing about that is that no one gets to see what a great girl she is... wake up Pris!
She is great with people and even gets on well with other dogs. She loves going on walks and meeting new people along the way. She is very strong and does pull a bit on leash but once she is over the initial excitement she's fine. Overall, she is a terrific dog and would be happy in many situations.
Come meet her and if she's sleeping, wake her up!

Peekaboo (A1140648, just 5 months old, on medical alert and needs out NOW!!!) at SLA shelter

PLEASE DON'T HIDE FROM US -- WE WANT TO HELP (watch gentle Peekaboo, innocent and trusting, kissing and hoping for someone to care -- and promise her she'll never see any more abuse

Peekaboo (A1140648, just 5 months old, on medical alert and needs out NOW!!!) was originally brought into the shelter with her two sisters back in early August. The girls were all adopted -- Peekaboo into a home that kept her for about 3 weeks, then returned her to the shelter, claiming they had "no home". Somehow, these people failed to mention that they were dumping this precious puppy with a fracture of her femoral head, leaving her limping and horribly depressed.

Forget that now -- together we must save Peekaboo's life, get her the surgery she needs, and prove to her that there are those she can trust, those who will laugh at her antics, and those who will protect and cherish her for the rest of her life.
If you want to be the one to play hide-and-seek with Peekaboo, please call the South L.A. shelter at (213) 485-0117 or -0119. And if you would like to pledge funds towards a qualified rescue who can get Peekaboo the surgery she needs, please let us know.

We thank you, Andrea & Mindy ivegonetothedogs@gmail.com
