Two quick, but important, announcements!
1. Many of you may have heard the story of Benetton, the 8-month-old tricolor male chihuahua mix who was discarded at the Baldwin Park Shelter because he didn't match his owners' drapes. (Yes, drapes -- you read that correctly...) A young boy in Virginia with an inoperable brain tumor saw our post about Benetton online and became very concerned about him. His mother has arranged to adopt him in order to make her son's dream come true and provide Benetton a home for the rest of his life. We are looking for someone who can drive Benetton to San Diego on Sunday, so he can catch his flight to his new family on Monday. If you are available to help with this, please contact me ([address removed],[masked]).
2. The Baldwin Park Shelter will be holding a volunteer orientation this Saturday (9/10) at 9 AM at the Baldwin Park Library. If you are not already an official shelter volunteer (with a maroon shirt and key privileges) and would like to be, please attend and bring with you either your valid US Passport or driver's license AND social security card. You are welcome to attend, even if you haven't already been contacted by the shelter. If you regularly help out at our Glamour Shot Days but haven't already been through the orientation, please consider attending.
