Attention Pet-Loving Bloggers: Contest!!


Cindy at Contests & Challenges has posted a contest with neat prizes AND...the best part is, the contest helps shelter pets!!

I've posted about this before, but it's definitely worth reiterating. Add an Animal Rescue Site widget to your sidebar, like the one you can see on the right hand of my site, and you are eligible to participate in Cindy's contest.

From Wildcatsthree:

I received word from a friend of mine who is a foster mom for Lil Paws Rescue that the Animal Rescue site is experiencing a low number of clicks, and therefore is not getting enough sponsor money to buy food for the rescued animals.

If you have a website or blog, and would like to help the Animal Rescue Site by displaying their clickable widget on your site, click here. Once on the page, look in the upper left corner for "Link to us." That will take you to the page where you can choose your widget, and get the code to paste into your template.

This is such a worthy cause. It costs you nothing, but can go a long way in helping feed the rescued animals until a permanent home is found for them.

Here are the guidelines for Cindy's contest:

"1.) Get the widget and place it on your blog or web page. (the instructions for doing this are in the italicized portion above) Added note: it does not matter if you've had the widget for ages- you can still leave a comment and be entered in the contest-every widget counts in helping the animals.

2.) Leave a comment on this post linking to your post and telling me that you've placed the widget on your page. Please, and this is important: include your e-mail address in your comment so I can reach you if you're the winner.

3.) This one's optional, but it would help spread the word. Write a post like the one I copied (above) from Wild Cats Three and include the appropriate links.

That's it. A winner will be selected randomly thirty one days from today (February 29th)from the list of comments.

The prize is twofold.

First the winner will receive this pin. It's all gold in color (camera made shadows) and that's a real pearl in its' paws.

and second, a donation of $20 worth of pet food will be given to our local chapter of the SPCA in the winners' name.

You may comment once daily throughout the contest for multiple chances at winning."

Thank you so much! This is wonderful!
And by the way, the story you read
Chamber of Horrors did not happen to me. My Mother e-mailed it to me and I thought it was so hilarious I just had to share it. And, no it didn't happen to her either-someone else sent it to her...
Again, thank you so very much for promoting my contest for the animals! I really appreciate it!
