And white albacore for the birthday boy, at that:
And because all cats and dogs are not as lucky, but should be, how about a big shout out to all you who bought Balloon Juice swag! Here is Evelyn holding her first check from the Balloon Juice cafe Press store (located to the right under a picture of a glaring Tunch):
Laura W. passes along this info:
Evelyn Bridges, Charlie’s Angels’ founder, holds her first check from the Balloon Juice Cafe Press store. $860! The dogs are two of over a dozen rescued as wandering strays or pulled from the Transylvania County Shelter in the last week alone. To give an idea of how great the need is, and how busy this very small and dedicated group stays:
There are seven dogs going to Pennsylvania this week and three going to Washington DC on April 28th. Six dogs are in foster homes and/or at a kennel waiting for transport arrangements. Charlie’s Angels still has five dogs at the shelter that they have found rescue groups for as soon as spay/neutering, fostering and transports are arranged. Evelyn writes: “The shelter is full again today. We just cannot keep up.”
How your generous donations were spent:
$300 for five spay/neuters on Tuesday, April 20th.
$200 partial payment to a retired Vet who does vaccinations for Charlie’s Angels at the shelter. A balance of $325 remains.
$290 paid in full to boarding kennel through April 20th for boarding rescued dogs until they can be transported. This is due to not having near enough foster homes.
The additional $70 was applied to Vet bill at Banfield’s Pet Hospital for medical care. An outstanding balance remains.
So buy your Balloon Juice swag and support the furry ones.
