Tsarina Tuesday

My very dear friend Cody had a Giveaway on his blog for his birthday. I won $25 to give to the pet charity of my choice. I choose Animal Protection and Education Association, Inc. of Mississippi. They helps all animals and they are one of the very few no kill shelters in our area. Sadly they at full capacity now and cannot take anymore animals. Please visit their website to see all the terrific animals they are caring for.

I wants to tell you about their mascot Ruffy, who has a forever home at the shelter. He is a "homozygous merle" (genetically correct term), Australian Shepherd. Ruffy is primarily white with a patch of blue merle. He is a result of someone breeding two merle colored Australian Shepherds together. Ruffy is deaf and has very limited sight, but he leads a very happy life at the shelter.

They has lots of dogs at the shelter for adoption including two homozygous merle brothers. One is deaf and blind and the other is just deaf. Most of their doggies are older and none seem to be house trained. But they all look like they would make great additions to someones home who was willing to train them. There are plenty of cats and horses that are looking for a homes too.

Thanks for giving me this opportunity to help them Cody. You are a very special mancat to do something so nice. ~Hugs & nose kisses, Artemisia

  8. hi Artemisia! What a great contest that was! We are so sad that the shelter is all full - we think no kill shelters are wonderful and wish there were more of them (or even better wish that shelters weren't needed because all the cats and dogs and other animals in them all had good forever homes). We think that you made a great choice for your donation!
