Pins for Pets Update

This Sunday August 3rd is the Pins for Pets bowling extravaganza and three Feline Rescue board members are planning to bowl! You can support our efforts by sponsoring the board member of your choice.

Christine at:

Why you should sponsor Christine:

Says she's a terrible bowler but is willing to tackle the challenge for a good cause! She's got heart! Plus her cats are threatening to withhold their affection if she doesn't meet her goal.

Jocelyn at:

Why you should sponsor her:

She is a terrible bowler and it will be good for her self-esteem. Has been told she bowls like Fred Flintstone and/or an elf.

Christopher at:

Why you should sponsor Ferzie:

He's the best bowler of the bunch so you're supporting a winner! Secretly planning to use his success at this event as the first step toward total world cat domination.

Feline Rescue is a member of the Homes For All Pets coalition, a group of Minnesota animal rescue organizations dedicated to working together to reduce pet overpopulation.Chuck & Don's Pet Food Stores is planning a fundraising event whose goal is to raise $75,000 for spay/neuter activities.

There are also prizes for top bowling scores. Plus there will be guest celebrities like Katie K-9, giveaways to all participants (canvas totes, towels), t-shirts and prizes.
