I am excited to share the upcoming 4th Annual Puppy Love Run/Walk on the scenic 101 in Solana Beach because the Helen Woodward Animal Center has been so good to us! I also thought since Valentine’s Day is coming up some of you might consider giving thegift of love (a new pet) to your family, or at least supporting a fab organization that does just that! All it took was a little one-on-one time (and a few licks, from him, too) with an adorable little pooch we happened upon at PETCO Park (adoption kiosk) and by the end of the day we named “Spot” (the cute little pooch to the right in the photo) and he became part of our family.
We were very impressed with the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s adoption practices and procedures – particularly because they are a no-kill facility that receives no government funding and also because they required us to take in our other dog for a play session to insure that they would be ideal companions! Because they heavily rely on on tax-deductible contributions from private donors to continue their life-saving mission, Helen Woodward Animal Center could use the support of San Diego’s online enthusiasts to help get the word out!
Now for the event special from our Circle Buzz affiliate:
