While doing a little research on pet foods recently, I happened upon the blog of Frannie Syufy through the About.com website. Frannie is a member of the cat writer's association and has been writing for About.com on the subject of cats since 1997. At her recent blog entry, Frannie has a picture of a cat named 'Rosie', who is a little female feline, and resident of the HALO Animal Shelter in Antioch, California, posted along with an article.
'Rosie' will be one of many featured cats at a special two-day event happening on the 17th and 18th of June in the California East Bay area. 38 animal shelters and rescue organizations in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties will be coming together for 'Maddie's Matchmaker Adoptathon' in a collaborative effort to find suitable and forever homes for many beautiful animals and at no cost to the adopter for this particular event being sponsored by Maddie's Fund.
Maddie's Fund is an organization which was created by Dave Dunfield, of Peoplesoft, and his wife Cheryl, which honors the memory of their beloved miniature schnauzer, 'Maddie'. David and Cheryl have given personally, and raised millions to help save cats and dogs in need. It's efforts such as these and that of Frannie, and the HALO Animal Shelter, that warm my heart in knowing that so much is being done to try and save our animals.
To anyone who is reading this and/or who may live in the California East Bay area, or know someone living there who is looking for a special feline or canine, PLEASE pass this information along.
