Snacking on the All About Animals Benefit
We are now the proud parents to two kitties who were strays on the street. They never made it to a shelter, but I don’t know what our life would be like without them. I know a lot of people who would want to pay money for a designer animal that they will come to love and if that’s what they want to do, it’s fine, but I want to talk about the benefits of adopting an animal from the All About Animals Rescue.
5. You’re saving a life. The shelter is facing possible closure. Coming to the benefit may help them gain the money they need to put get their shelter up to standards, but if that doesn’t happen, the animals will be going to an already crowded facility to be euthanized. Even if you can’t help the shelter stay open, you can help keep a dog or cat alive.
4. You’re supporting a cause. All About Animals Rescue is a no kill shelter in the Middle GA area. They believe healthy animals shouldn’t be killed and that they should have a place to live until they can be adopted. How much more worthy can you get?
3.You’re impacting the community. This is a community that wants to save animals. Nearly everyone we know has an animal and they care about this movement. Showing up shows you’re on the same page as the community. If your goal is to fight for community needs and issues, then you should be at this event.
2.You’re supporting the community. The animals and the shelter aren’t the only needy things at this Benefit. The bands, the artists, the businesses that willingly gave up some of their inventory for this event also need your support. These are people who are willing to sacrifice for the event, as they were able, anyway.
1. You’ll get lots of love. Back to the animals: These animals need stable homes with people who will give them love, walks, and treats. Our youngest kittie has so many quirks, even though we got her when she was only a few weeks old. You would have thought she was too young to have any of the street in her, but she amuses us greatly with her constant search for food and the way she has adapted some of her feral ways to fit in with us and our older kittie. We got the older kittie when she was about 6 months old. She finally came to trust that she would be staying with us and has grown to love us so much, as we love her. I couldn’t imagine not coming home to her demanding meows or having the follow me around on Tuesday mornings because they know they’re getting soft cat food that day. It has been so rewarding getting these pets. When I go to Pet Smart (where All About Animals has adoption times on Saturday from 11am-4pm), I just want to take them all home with me. My home can’t hold more animals, but I know that there are a few of you out there who are missing the love an connection that having a pet will grant you. And don’t forget the stories that can be told about their antics. I know many of you have the room in your heart, but if you can find the room in your home, you should adopt a pet.
The All About Animals Benefit is Friday from Noon – until the last band plays. From Noon – 6, there will be adoptions, silent auctions, and you get to meet the fabulous Ink for Paws girls. Then at 8pm, the music gets started with Amy Godwin, Citizen Insane, The Liabilities, Mag Tard, and Monster Party. It will be the best $5 you’ll ever spend on a Friday night because you get to see some really great bands and you get to add your touch to the community and to an animal in need.
