30 Nov

On Tuesday, we announced our “Donate to Win” fundraiser to help Bully Project cover our medicals costs for our most recent rescue, Baci. Along with the thirteen great prizes we announced then, we have two more prizes to add to the list! The same rules apply, but as a reminder:

  • Donations can be made on Bully Project’s Firstgiving Fundraising page.
  • For every $10 donation, you get one entry. Donate $40 and you will get four entries; donate $100 and you will get ten!
  • All entries will be entered into an online randomizer, and winners will be chosen on the day after Christmas (aka Wednesday, December 26th). This gives you exactly one month to enter.
  • Prizes will be assigned to each winner in the following order. We’ve got lots of great stuff – so if you’re a household with pets, we know all of these prizes will appeal to you!

One winner will receive a $100 Gift Certificate to New York City pet boutique Beasty Feast. This shop has become a landmark in the West Village.

Donate to Win!

As we shared yesterday, Baci‘s recovery has been taking a little bit longer than expected. We’ve been back and forth with her to the vet approximately, well, 7 times. And that’s not even including her initial boarding there while she was being treated for kennel cough! So as you can imagine, we’ve racked up quite a bill on this little girl. It’s all worth it though, and when she finds her forever home, it will be even more so!

But we now we need your help, friends. Baci’s care has taken quite a toll on our resources and her care is still ongoing. And with the holidays rapidly approaching, we figured what better time than now to do a “Donate to Win!” fundraiser. We’ve got lots of great prizes you could win and the only thing you have to do to enter is donate a minimum of $10! Here’s the deal:

  • Donations can be made on Bully Project’s Firstgiving Fundraising page.
  • For every $10 donation, you get one entry. Donate $40 and you will get four entries; donate $100 and you will get ten!
  • All entries will be entered into an online randomizer, and winners will be chosen on the day after Christmas (aka Wednesday, December 26th). This gives you exactly one month to enter.
  • Prizes will be assigned to each winner in the following order. We’ve got lots of great stuff – so if you’re a household with pets, we know all of these prizes will appeal to you!

Letters from Lucy: Help Us Win $1500!!

19 Jul

Hey everyone! Lucy here! Dad enlisted me to tell you about a little contest he submitted his little bloggie in. It’s called Bloggers for GOOD.

The competition calls for bloggers to use their platforms to create positive social impact. People then vote on which blog they like best feel does this most effectively. Well, I like to think my little letters here do a pretty darn good job! Don’t they help you see how we pitties can be wonderful pets like every other doggie out there?

Over the almost one year that Dad has been bringing in friends for me to play, we’ve been recording our experiences on here, from the fun:

To the hard work:

And to the very, very sad.

And what has all of it boiled down to? Well, we hope that we’ve had an effect on your lives; that hopefully we’ve made you think about things a little bit differently, or inspired you, or made some kind of emotional impact.

When all of the voting is done (you have until Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 12pm Pacific time/3pm Eastern time), the blog with the most votes will win $1000 for the cause of their choice, and $500 for the author! In our case, our personal $500 prize will also go to our cause, which is of course, Bully Project. (Personally, I’d rather it go to getting me a lifetime supply of deer antlers, but whatever!) As most of you know, Bully Project helps to provide much needed resources to pit bull-type dogs and their owners as well as rescuing, fostering, and rehoming dogs. You can check out a list of our current adoptables on Petfinder.

So vote for us! Just click on this link, and then click on the button that says, “VOTE FOR THIS IDEA”. It’s that easy. And once you’ve voted, share the link with all of your friends, family, coworkers and social networks and tell THEM to vote and share, too.

But wouldn’t you know it? My best pen pals Turkey & Rufus (& Polly Pocket) entered the competition, too. But beware! You only get one vote – so choose wisely!
