Remember when I told you about the doggy benefit this past Saturday where there weren't many in the audience? (Labor Day). It's a monthly event to help out a local neighborhood group that rescues older, sick pets who've been abandoned by their owners and left at the pound to be destroyed. They give them medical attention and the adopt them out to people who will take in older pets.

If you go to this page, you'll see some of the faces who are looking for homes. 1-800-Save-A-Pet. The dog on the left is Pepper, a Jack Terrier.

You can also donate a few bucks to help them out. I'm sure it will be put to very good use.

From my friend, singer/songwriter Julie Chadwick:

The Pepper Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non profit Animal Rescue Group. We specialize in rescueing mostly senior and special needs doggies from our City and County Animal Shelters. These are animals that have been discarded by their owners, and would normally be put to sleep because of health issues and  age. But we feel these little souls have the right to live out there lives in a wonderful and loving home. We take care of all their medical needs and rehabilitate them, and try to find forever homes for them. Somtimes with senior and special needs this is difficult, so we let them live out their lives either in our care or in loving foster homes. Unfortunately special needs and senior doggies cost the most which is why donations are always greatly appreciated, since we survive soley on donations. We can be reached at planetheart@aol.com. if anyone is interested in either adopting one of our precious souls or making a donation.
