Time to Help the Furbabies again....

2010 is over and the Etsy Angels had a great year of fundraising. We took a few months off to promote our shops for the holidays and focus on Christmas and our families. Now we are ready to get back to the main mission off the Etsy Angels...raising funds for worthy causes.

January 2011 will be spent raising funds for ORVAL, (Ouachita River Valley Animal League)in Louisiana. The organization began in 1995 with the promise of trying to make the local shelter a better place by reducing the number of pets euthanized and by giving them resources and products to make the pets more comfortable during their limited time at the shelter. ORVAL quickly realized that a lot of animals were being surrendered because their owners could not afford vet bills. ORVAL then decided to add Vet Assistance to the list of services. Along with vet assistance, ORVAL also has a foster program to try to give pets, from the shelter, a longer and better chance of getting adopted!

This cause is very special to Wildlifer aka Amanda.

We will be donating a portion of our sales to the cause. WE have something for everyone....

And of course Ozarknana aka Melana created a new mascot for us and will donate 50% of Starbarks dog!

Thank you Melana for another great mascot!!

Be sure to stay tuned for more specials from the Angels for "ORVAL".

Yay! Wonderful blog post!! I hope we can raise lots of money for ORVAL!!! Those furbabies need to stay in their new homes and not be put back into the shelters b/c their new parents couldn't afford some basic vet expenses!!

Was that an Annie sighting?? Hey Annie!!!!

What an excellent cause. I hope your group raises enough funds to take care of those poor dogs. The Starbarks mascot is too funny.
