If it weren't for Tails of Hope, I never would've met the real-life inspiration for Dexter in Bad to the Bone, Foots.
And we never would have gotten our seven-pound cute attack, Twinkle! She was our foster cat for about half a day before we decided to keep her (though the official adoption didn't happen until after we were sure she would get along with our other pets).
So Tails of Hope is doing another Shelter Challenge, where you can vote to help them receive grant money and other prizes.
All you have to do is go to the Animal Rescue Site Shelter Challenge page, enter Tails of Hope in the search box, and then follow the instructions to vote. You don't need to give any personal information or register or anything like that. It's totally private and totally effortless.
You can vote once per day per computer. The site will remember that Tails of Hope was the last one you voted for, so you won't have to search for it again. It takes about ten seconds a day to vote.
I added the link to my Firefox toolbar by clicking on the "paw" icon in the URL box and simply dragging it to my toolbar. That way I remember every day when I'm scanning the toolbar looking for a way to waste time. I think Internet Explorer works the same way. Voting continues until March 20.
As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I don't get much time to volunteer these days due to book deadlines and the day-to-day duties of running a business, so this is one of the few ways I can help, by spreading the word. If you would in turn help me by reposting the link and the voting instructions on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever, I would be very grateful.
Have a wonderful weekend!
