D I D Y O U K N O W ? ? ? ? ?

Did you know that each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. - and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. There are 7 puppies and kittens born for every 1 person, 2,500 to 3,000 puppies and kittens are born each hour in the United States. Only 1 in 10 will find a home. As a result, 4-6 million animals in the U.S. each year are euthanized because there are no homes for them. Spaying and neutering is not an expensive procedure. Please encourage your friends of feline and canine companions to spay and/or neuter their pets.

And please help The Lime Light Design Team out by making crafts for local animal shelters to sell to support the shelters' needs. Click HERE for details. We need you & all of your crafting friends to help us out. If your friends don't craft, they can donate toys, leashes, collars--whatever is easiest for them.


NOTE TO THOSE WHO WANT TO HELP IN THEIR LOCAL AREAS--WHAT CAN YOU DO?
1.Adopt a shelter pet. Remember, free pets from the classifieds are not free. You still have to spay/neuter, vaccinate, de-worm and have a vet exam costing approximately $150. For about half that amount, all that is included in your adoption fee. 2. Support your local shelter with monetary donations ( to help feed, care for the pets). 3. Volunteer your time and talents at your local shelter. 4. Spay and neuter your pets and encourage family and friends to do so. 8. Provide your pet with annual veterinary care and medical care as needed. 5. Report animal abuse and neglect--it is a crime and now thanks to progressive thinking legislators a felony in many states.


I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping in whatever way you can.
