WishBones for Pets – 2010

Benefit for Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue

As a part of our commitment to pet sitting and caring for animals, our business is a member of the Professional Pet Sitters of Minnesota (www.petsittersmn.org). Professional Pet Sitters of Minnesota (PPSMN) is an association of pet sitting business owners dedicated to promoting the welfare of all animals and raising the standards of the pet sitting industry through example, education and cooperation.

For the past several years PPSMN has joined an international effort called Wishbones for Pets, which is a charitable program, designed for pet sitters to collect and distribute funds for local pet shelters and other pet related agencies in their own community. Pet sitters from around the United States and Canada will be participating in this event. Thank you to our clients who participated last year!!! Professional Pet Sitters of Minnesota will be hosting Wishbones for Pets again this Thanksgiving season.

This year’s proceeds will benefit Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue (www.redlakerosie.org). The dates of this drive will be October 15th through November 30th 2010. Donation jars will be placed at local Veterinarians, Groomers and Pet Stores. Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue, Inc. began in 2004 by a group of volunteers on the Red Lake Reservation in northwestern Minnesota who were concerned about domestic animals and their care in our nation. The group incorporated and was granted 501 (c) (3) status as a nonprofit organization in February 2006. RLRR has a volunteer network in the Twin Cities that provides support.

Their focus is on the following programs:

· Rescue of homeless dogs and cats

· Temporary sheltering of rescued animals

· Providing food and medical care

· Neutering and spaying

· Adoption into forever homes

All donations go directly to the care of animals and all gifts are tax deductible.

Tough economic times over the past couple of years have had a huge impact

on pets, pet owners, shelters and rescue organizations. There is an overwhelming

number of animals in need this year so it is especially important for us to help.

Thanksgiving is the holiday that encourages us to step back and give thanks for all

the blessings we have. We would like to help make a positive difference by providing a prosperous holiday for the many animals in need. As part of our fund raising effort we are sending this letter to our clients to see if you would be interested in donating to this worthy cause. You can mail a check (payable to Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue) to Jody Smith PO Box 36 Mound, MN 55364 or contact me with any questions. Jody 952-472-8877

On behalf of PPSMN and all the animals who will benefit from your donation, thank you in advance for your generosity!
