Etched In My Heart

Etched In My Heart offers pet lovers a wide variety of personalized gifts. They were nice enough to send us personalized frames for our dog and bird. Not only are they unique, but the frames are high quality too. We were also impressed at how quickly they arrived, and the packaging.

Etched In My Heart

Another thing we love about Etched In My Heart is that they donate part of their proceeds to The PetSave Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Bona Tucker in June 2000 as a rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption resource for domestic rabbits, cats and dogs. You can learn more (and see some adorable photos of the rescue at work) by clicking here.

Etched In My Heart was founded by Bob Tucker in 2007 based upon the need to provide pet lovers a custom gift or personalized frame that have beautiful designs specific to dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and birds. We loved that they included animals beyond just dogs and cats. As a bird owner we are always excited to find gifts that celebrate birds.

They offer a wide variety of pet lovers gifts and pet memorial gifts that you, many of which are one-of-a-kind designs that you will find nowhere else. Be sure to have a look around their website!

FiXiT Aims to Facilitate 25 Spay Neuters This Week

surprised-cat-1435921-mSponsors Are Able to Contribute As Little as $10 to Help an Animal Get Spayed/Neutered

Every year 3-4 million dogs and cats die in animal shelters in the United States because there aren’t enough homes for them. FiXiT is dedicated to coming up with solutions to reduce the number of homeless animals by helping people get their animals get spayed/neutered. GetYourFix.org, a program of nonprofit organization FiXiT, is an online resource whose primary purpose is to introduce people in need of financial assistance to get the animals they care for fixed to generous people willing to sponsor their pets’ spay/neuter surgery.

“The site was created in response to the heartbreaking requests received from people wanting to do the right thing – telling us of their personal hardships and asking for our help to end the cycle of unwanted kittens and puppies,” said Dr. Kellie Heckman, Co-Founder of FiXiT. “GetYourFix-registered pet owners have an extremely low income, 70 percent have a household income of less than $25,000, and 95 percent have a household income less than $50,000. As a result of this program, over 1500 surgeries have been sponsored since the launch of GetYourFix in 2011 in these low-income households.”

In honor of World Spay Day 2014, GetYourFix will dramatically ramp up a microfunding feature – Fix of the Week – to meet a goal of raising funds to spay/neuter 25 animals. Over the course of the Spay Day week, February 24 – 28, sponsors will be able to contribute as little as $10 to the cost their choice of featured animals. Profiles will be chosen based on several criteria, including the caregiver and animal’s story, level of need, and risk of unwanted pregnancy, such as in homes with both an unaltered male and female of the same species.

Visit http://fixit-foundation.org/spayday2014/ during the week of February 24 – 28 to contribute to the cost of animals in need of financial support to end the companion animal overpopulation crisis in the U.S.
