Help us help the critters

This is the fifth year that my sweet lil' Suki and I will participate in the Walk for the Animals to raise some bucks for the very deserving Humane Society of Broward County. We have so much fun at the walk, and when we get home at the end of the day, she regales old man Ching Ching with stories about jumping around in baby pools and sniffing strangers' tushies.

My animals bring so much joy to my life. (OK, let's be honest -- they help keep me sane!) And I know most of you have also experienced the love that only a devoted pet can give. So, I have no doubt that you understand the worthiness of this cause.

The Humane Society has introduced me to beloved pets, given me pet behavior and health advice, provided us low-cost training classes and shots, and given me vast opportunities to get involved and make a difference (a big "YAY!" for the PetSet parties). It's the largest animal adoption agency in the Southeast U.S. and found homes for 9,923 pets last year. Its staff educated more than 100,000 adults and kids, and spayed/neutered more than 10,000 pets. (Are you impressed yet?)

The best part is that my company (I'm the pack leader of our company's walking team) gives $2 for every $1 I raise! So, if you donate $25 through me, it magically turns into $75. Isn't that fantastic!? Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to give; but if you'd rather hand me a check or cash, that's great, too.

Thank you SO MUCH for your generous donation and continued support! I hope you'll come out and play with us at the walk! And if you don't live nearby, maybe you'll be inspired to find a worthwhile charity near you.
