I’m having a ball opening my mail at Quilts lately as the postcards for our second year of our Festival’s Pet Project to benefit Friends For Life, Houston’s premier no-kill animal shelter are starting to arrive. Last year we raised more than $20,000 to save animals’ lives, but I am aiming to double that amount at this fall’s show!
Some of the cards we’ve received in the last week:
Yesterday I went to Friends For Life to drop off some posters and postcards on my lunch hour and visited with some of the animals. Above are Casanova and Romeo, two older cats who were surrendered by their owner. These sweet, docile siblings have been there for way too long, and if I didn’t have a household of critters already, I’d take them. I hope they get to enjoy their golden years in a loving home!
As I was leaving the shelter, this one kitty tried very hard to get my attention.
Almost got me.
When I was leaving, I met a dog getting some 1:1 training whose name had me laughing because I thought I was the only person on the planet who had named my dog after an E Street member. Meet Clarence.
Then I went home for a quick bite for lunch and met my own Clarence (formerly Toby) that I got from Friends For Life, who was a little mad I wanted to eat my lunch in peace.
