Operation Toto

Our little buddy Tank is organizing "Project Toto" in an effort to get much needed fleece blankets to the Humane Society in Joplin Missouri to support their efforts to house, manage and comfort displaced pets in the area resulting from the tornadoes  which occurred on Monday.  

***

  Here's the address:

Joplin Humane Society
Animal Adoption and Resource Center
140 E. Emperor Lane
Joplin, MO   64801
                                 
Jack said that some sellers on Amazon offer free shipping on orders over $25.00 but to be careful that Amazon doesn't try to change your shipping address.  Since Jack recently awarded us a gift certificate from Amazon, we're going to use it to send some blankets to doggies and kittehs who are frightened, hungry and missing their humans.  



Here we are modeling the proper use of blankets...

Perfect demo on how much comfort the blankets will bring.

I made a donation to the Joplin Shelter earlier today. I know that they will need a lot of help with many thingys.

Great Models. We are sending Mom out to get blankets tomorrow to mail to them. We also have some that we were donating to the mission that will go them as well. Everyone needs a good blanket to snuggle on, especially in times like this. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

We have already sent some blankets via a friend of our human sister who has been driving to Joplin with donations from this area. If you find a good link on Amazon, let us know because we have a gift card for there too.

I've been watching the tornado coverage on our news and it's so devastating. The whole earth seems to be doing a big protest about something.

This sounds like an excellent way to help out those in need. Well done guys.

I just read your comment on my post. Guess what? My mom is reading the SAME book right now. But trust me, her experience in New York was NOTHING like Patti Smith's experience - except the part about sometimes not having enough money to eat. My mom kind of lived on bagels back then!

Your pal, Pip
