It's getting near the end of the month, so don't forget to make your donation to Red Door through the very cute web site Romeo the Cat [www.romeothecat.com] Romeo and Pugsley have been working hard to help all the animals at Red Door and we appreciate it! Also, remember to check out the Rescue Mom and Rescue Dad magnets for sale at Romeo's web site and the Rescue My Animals stickers. Money raised from these sales in September help out the homeless animals at the shelter.
Pets and human beings of all faiths are invited to partake in the Blessing of the Animals at 11 a.m. on October 3 in the courtyard of St. Nicholas, 806 Ridge Avenue, Evanston. Please have all animals on leash or in a cage. Pets will receive a small St. Francis medal.
Darian would be a perfect candidate. This sweet, fun bunny was left in his cage out on the sidewalk overnight. Some good neighbors took him in and then brought him to Red Door. He's just a dream bunny -- smart, affectionate, litterbox-trained, handsome. All he wants now is a new forever home. Darian is just one of the many wonderful rabbits Red Door has ready for adoption: all vet-checked, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and litterbox-trained.
They flew all the way from Kuwait to Chicago (thanks to a generous rescuer who wanted them to be safe), where they were greeted at O'Hare by Red Door. You may remember seeing them on the local TV news or reading about them -- Lucky & Ramone made some big splashes in the local media. But finding someone willing to take on the adult pair --who are totally in love with each other -- wasn't as easy as getting them on television. But we're happy to say that Lucky & Ramone have been adopted together into a new home, where they are living the good life. And that's an American dream for these two bunnies.
Thanks to everyone who brought a dog to our Whole Foods dog wash. It was a wet, wild, and bubbling success, as these photos prove. Thanks to Whole Foods Evanston South, too, for hosting this event for all the animals at the shelter. And thanks, of course, to all our volunteers who helped out at the event.
