Lucky dog is right, but it is not ALL about the dogs! It’s about the lucky puppies, cats, kitties, bunnies, birds, and hampsters too that get rescued by the Cleveland APL who need to find their forever homes. The APL has been servicing our community for 100 years and take in about 17,000 animals a year into their shelter, which is solely funded by our donations.
We are proud to announce that we are assisting the APL in collecting donations for their 8th Annual Pledge For Pets – Doggy Dollars & Kitty Kash Fundraiser, and this is our 3rd year participating in this great event! Our goal this year is to collect $1,000 in donations. Pledge For Pets takes place on May 10th – 11th and when we get closer to the event, we will even post a link on our blog so you can watch the event live, or just listen to a live broadcast right at the Cleveland APL’s site. (You might even be able to see us there at the event, because we always make an appearance to say hello and to drop off any last minute donations that we collected) Last year, they even told Nikita’s adoption story, live on the air! To make a donation, click HERE.
There are ways that you can help us too:
If you have a blog: 1) We encourage you to add our yellow Pledge For Pets box on your blog. 2) We encourage you to write a quick blog post that Nikitaland is passionate about helping animals in need! Here is the code so you can “add” a text box widget to your blog (if you need assistance in adding this to your blog, contact us & we’ll be more than happy to assist you – NOTE: This box can be removed from your blog after May 11th)
Pass the word around: 1) Share our donation link via email to everyone you know who might be interested in helping out. 2) If you have a social media account, then send out some “tweets” about the Pledge For Pets! (we don’t have any of these accounts, so we need your help in getting the word out) 3) Tell your friends, family, and even your co-workers that we need help in collecting donations! Each and every donation matters, no matter what denomination you give, as it all goes towards the wealth and care of the animals who need our help! Here is the secure donation link to share: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/nikitaland/2013-doggy-dollars-kitty-kash
All donations are tax deductible, so keep your receipts!
We cannot thank all of you enough for your help in spreading the word, and for your donations! We would love to reach the goal that we have set and help the animals who need us!

Tomorrow’s post is all for you, baby!
Aw, thank you! We appreciate the help!
Fantastic – I love hearing people supporting our furry friends. Thanks so much for spreading the word, and I plan to do the same!
Thank you so much Jules! We appreciate all the help we can get! We even are cage sponsors too at the APL and donate $25/mo for this too! I hope a lot of chipmunks can help us out! If you need any more information, let me know! Thanks, Val!
What a generous girl you are…but of course we all know this!! I am reading a book right now about dogs and it made me cry what happened to them when the economy crashed a few years back…
I try. Ever since we got Nikita we wanted to find a way to help give back to the APL. We take great pride in this cause. I bet that book would make one cry, because when the economy crashes and no one has money to eat, the animals suffer.
Bravo for doing all you do in your community Val. As you know, we too are big animal lovers and we always make a generous donation to our local SPCA. My hubbies company matches our pledge so that’s a great way to double our donations. Good Luck with your fundraiser!
We are so pleased to be helping out again, for the third year in a row. We got involved when we adopted Nikita three years ago and we know first-hand on how well they take care of the animals they bring in. That is awesome that your hubs company matches your pledges!
