We have a lot of new followers these days so we thought we would refresh everyone’s memory about our Facebook page. Spare Change Filling Furry Bellies. It has grown exponentially since we first began it back in April of this year. We still have all our original goals that we posted here on the blog. (SCFFB begins.)

Our first and main mission is to save our spare change for one month. At the end of each month we take it to a CoinStar and then send the money to a different rescue every month. So far this has been really successful and we’ve even had a few people add their change to ours for donations.

The additional points to our Facebook page is that we post Adoptable Pets of the Week from various rescues and shelters. (Currently only in the Michigan area until we get a bigger following and take this thing nationwide.) We also share fundraising events for rescues and sometimes ChipIns for emergency cases. (ChipIns are Paypal powered online donation centers created by a rescue to ask for immediate donations for emergency medical care.) We even post people’s rescued pets if they want, with story, in our Rescued Critters photo album.

So if you like the idea please go like the page as well and feel free to interact. ^_^

I’m not entirely sure if this is legitimate or not since we’re still fairly new to wordpress, but we received an email that our blog is being featured on a blog awards site run by hirewordpressexperts.com. If so, yay! It will be the first one!

It redirects you to our blog but I’ll link it anyway. http://hirewordpressexperts.com/blog_awards/index.php?id=270

 

Every morning I take Ozzy for a hike through the woods before work. It helps get some energy out so he behaves himself while I’m/we’re gone for the day. So I decided to start documenting our adventures in pictures.
