Must Love Dogs

30 Jan

Back in the summer I was able to meet two wonderful women, both committed to rescuing the abandoned, neglected and forgotten dogs in our area.  They are the mother and daughter duo behind the non-profit, volunteer-based PAWS of Marion dog rescue organization.  In the past few months I have been able to catch a glimpse at the work they do…and just from that glimpse I can tell you that they are 100% COMMITTED!  They work MANY, MANY hours in order to rescue dogs in our area.  And by rescue I mean they get the dogs, take the dogs back and forth to the vet, foster dogs, find foster homes, transport dogs to other rescue agencies, put up pens, deliver medicines, set-up adoptions and so much more!  SO MUCH MORE and it’s ALL VOLUNTEER!  And it ALL COST MONEY!  And it ALL COST TIME!

I am writing because I think there are some people out there that are like me that 1) love dogs and 2) had no idea that there are rescue agencies out there that could use some extra help and 3) there are many ways you can help them out!

W A Y S     Y O U     C A N     H E L P:

1.  Get Informed:  Please go to the PAWS of Marion website and read about the organization.

2.  Keep Up:  Become friends of PAWS of Marion on Facebook to keep up with the latest news and needs.

3.  Snip Snip:  Have your own pets spayed or neutered!

4.  Volunteer:  If you are interested in volunteering your time to help out in some capacity, please contact PAWS of Marion.

5.  Donate:  PAWS of Marion does not receive any county, state or federal funding.  It’s all based upon donations!  Every penny counts, seriously.  Vet bills ain’t cheap, y’all!  You can donate through PayPal or you can mail them a check directly.  All the information you need is found on their website.  Also on their website is list of other supplies they regularly need that you could donate.

6.  Other:  There are many other ways you can help–  adopt, foster, help with fundraisers and spread the word!  If you are interested in helping be sure to check out their WEBSITE and their FACEBOOK.

NEXT FUNDRAISER OPPORTUNITY::  PAWS will be having a Valentine’s Bake Sale fundraiser on Saturday, February 11th from 10AM until sellout at Wal-Mart in West Memphis. If you are interested in making baked goods to donate to the sale, please let me know.  Be sure to stop by the tent at Wal-Mart to buy some of the yumminess and support PAWS!  xoxo

Here’s just a few of the doggies they’ve rescued and that are currently available for adoption.

Home Giveaway WINNER

8 Nov


Stefanie Arnold

Stefanie shared with us that home is where family is–  It’s messy, but cozy and usually has happy sounds throughout it.  In the fall she and her family enjoy carving pumpkins, making food with the pumpkin guts (her words not mine : ) ), collecting leaves and making crafts with them, caramel dipped apples, sitting by fires and talking about thankfulness around the dinner table!  Sounds like wonderful ways to spend time during this season.

Thank you so much to all that entered the home giveaway and shared with me special things about your home and your traditions.  I enjoyed reading each one of them.  I hope you are enjoying an evening at home, I am!

A new kind of family tree

9 Mar

I was approached by someone and was asked to create a painting that represented sisters.  Inspired by a painting that my sister gave me plus my love for painting trees I did this:

Trees are similar and of the same family, just like sisters.  However they are each unique and individual.  I painted the trees touching to represent the strong bond that these two sisters have.

One can be customized for you!  Get the details on that here or go contact me at JILLDENTONART@gmail.com
