Good Paws Good Cause

Most of the country is experiencing winter or cold weather.  And, even if you don’t live in a cold climate, February tends to have many of us saying...“I’m tired of winter and want spring to get here!"

So, here are a few ideas FUR February!

Fur Shelters

Host a CABIN FEVER COCKTAIL PARTY!  Let the public know the cats and dogs at the shelter are getting “cabin fever” and need a home – as soon as possible! If your shelter space allows, hold the event at your facility and make it an open house with a “twist” by serving cocktails and appetizers. Be creative and use a photo or outline of a log cabin as the template for your kennel signs or handouts that offer information about each of your four-footed friends.   

Fur Cancer Organizations

WORLD CANCER DAY is February 4th.  Celebrate all month long by promoting a World Without Cancer campaign.  Whether you work to fight breast cancer, colorectal cancer or canine cancer, share facts and figures that illustrate just how different our world would be without cancer as a major health disparity.  Providing information on just how many lives could be saved, how many other diseases could be avoided, as well as a few things everyone can do in the fight against cancer.  Sharing information and resources will engage people to talk and learn more about cancer.

Fur Earth Conservation Groups

Having a SOUPER BOWL PARTY is always a quick and delicious idea!  A soup or chili cooking contest is a fun February promotion that always tastes great!  Invite participants to enter their homemade creations made with all natural and “organic” ingredients.  Create categories and offer prizes!  Most importantly, don’t forget to sell each bowl to make some “green”!
