Safe Fourth For All

Happy Fourth of July! May your holiday be safe for you, your family and your pets. Most of us our aware that our furry family members may not appreciate the loud and joyous celebration as much as their human counterparts. Have fun, but keep in mind your pets may need a little extra love today.

Here are some safety tips from the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

Final Push for Shoes!

NBASNew Beginnings Animal Sanctuary is 29 BAGS away from their shoe drive goal! I’m even parting with a few pairs of my precious Chocolaticas shoes!

NBAS is collecting shoes for Funds2Orgs, who will contribute $1,000 to New Beginnings per 100 bags of shoes. Funds2Orgs redistributes the shoes  in developing nations.

If you know a thrift store with an over stock of shoes,  call NBAS at (850) 678-2002 and someone will pick them up locally.

New Beginnings Animal Sanctuary, 509 East John Sims Parkway, Niceville, or call (850) 678-2002.

 

Shoe Drive Halfway to Success

20170508_124621 (1)New Beginnings Animal Sanctuary is halfway to their goal of collecting 100 bags of shoes before May 31. The shelter began the shoe drive in early April to raise money for our area’s homeless dogs.

New Beginnings Animal Sanctuary earns money based on the total weight of the shoes collected. Funds2Orgs, a fundraising organization, will purchase the donated footwear.  Funds raised will benefit local animals with food, shelter and medical procedures as well as education to prevent the problem at its source.

To maximize the benefit, New Beginnings must reach their goal of 100 bags of shoes. You can help by donating gently worn or new shoes at Niceville Animal Clinic, 509 East John Sims Parkway in Niceville. Together we can make Okaloosa County a habitable place for abandoned pets.

Lit Lizard Makes SWEET Debut

Gina Marini made an amazing Literary Lizard cake for the Edible Book contest held at the NWFSC LRC as part of their READS week.

Thanks to my good friend Gina for making a Literary Lizard cake for the Edible Book Contest at the Northwest Florida State College LRC.

Her cake was massive in size, amazing in detail and quite tasty. A GORGEOUS job from an amazing, multi-talented woman. Her cake won “Best in Children’s Books” and “People’s Choice!” More information about the contest.

Later, we donated the cake to Twin Cities Pavilion, an assisted living facility, for all the residents to enjoy.

Gina Marini is also the director of the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida, a wonderful museum dedicated to bringing the history of Northwest Florida to life and preserving it for future generations. Located in Valparaiso, the museum is one of our local treasures that needs to be preserved with the same care and dedication given to the community.

Offering craft classes, heritage skills, informative lectures and detailed displays, be sure to visit the museum soon. April 29 will be the annual Saturday in the Park event, something I look forward to every year. Click the image below for details.
