It was a fun time at the Colorado Wine Company the other evening. I had signed up for the Pasadena Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Walk
, and I decided that since I live in Los Angeles, I should donate to the Los Angeles Animal Shelter
as well. So what could be better? A flight of interesting wines, a cheese platter from Auntie Em’s, a sandwich platter donated by Dave’s Chillin’n’Grillin’, people who care about animals—it all contributed to a really nice event. We raffled off gift certificates donated by several local businesses as well. The Pasadena Humane Society sent a couple of volunteers to assist, and they were a great help with the raffle.
Thank you, all of you.

And, of course, everyone who came to the event!
So far, we’ve raised over $1000! I sent off a check to the Pasadena Humane Society and took a check down to the North Central LA Animal Shelter. They both do such important work—not just to provide care for lost and abandoned animals, but they work on eliminating the causes of unwanted animals with their educational programs, training for both volunteers and animals, emergency medical care, low-cost and free vaccinations and spay-neuter clinics. Did you know that both Pasadena and Los Angeles have a goal of not euthanizing any animals? The more money we can raise for their programs, the fewer animals will need our help in the future.
