A chance to help animals & win a FURminator, toy, and treats!

30,000+ people were evacuated due to wildfires in Santa Barbara County last week (including our twitter pal @PeanieWeenie's family - that's Peanie with the firefighters who saved his house). 84 families lost their homes in the fire, including many of Peanie's neighbors.

1000+ animals were displaced by the wildfires and taken in by local animal shelters. And many are still at the shelters as families sort through the damage caused by these fires. These shelters desperately need our help to care for these animals. You can help by making a donation via my fundraising page through for the Santa Barbara Humane Society.

Please give what you can - every single dollar makes a difference. And if enough of us get together and share $1, we will quickly surpass our goal of raising $2000 to help our fellow anipals.

On June 15th, I will randomly select a donor to receive a fabulous prize pack valued at more than $100. Prizes include:

*A FURminator de-shedding tool (winner can choose the size). Check out their cool products at

*A $25 gift certificate to @LaineysPawtique's etsy store . @LaineysPawtique's mama makes delicious doggie treats, beautiful doggie & kitty beds, and stunning jewely for animals & people.

*A gift from @Health4UandPets. If you are selected and you are a kitty you will receive 1 bag of Life's Abundance Gourmet Cat Treats For Healthy Skin & Coat If you are a doggie you will receive 1 14oz container of Gourmet Dental Treats for Dogs. Check out their site at

*An irresistible 26-inch interactive Sharkiana toy from @PawPetsDogToys. Check out their store!

Thanks for the generous prize donations!

To qualify for the drawing, just donate $1 or more and include your twitter name with your donation. If you do not have a Twitter account please leave me a comment that you donated and your name and you'll be entered to win too!

Remember, every $1 you donate will help care for animals whose families are dealing with the aftermath of these terrible fires. Thank you so much for your generosity!
