Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Say you’re moving from NYC to Florida? Or from Chicago to Texas. You have a car to move but don’t want to drive yourself. You also have a pet or pets to move. Car To Florida (cartoflorida.com) or Cross Country Driver (http://crosscountrydriver.com) will drive your car and your pet for you from one place to another. They will not only take pets, you need to also be moving your car as well. Sample fares are around $800.00 from NY area to Florida or $1100.00 for trips around 1000 miles. For more information see their website.

The Socially Responsible Pet

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

I believe that everyone has the capacity to have a positive impact in their community. It may be as simple as offering a meal to someone who is hungry, teaching someone a new skill, or solving a problem that has perplexed society. I believe that your pet can be socially responsible as well.

Below is a list of eight inspiring activities that you and your pet can do together to positively impact your community.

1. Become involved in the Sit Stay Read program. In this fabulous program children read to friendly pets that are naturally nonjudgmental and loving. Children find this experience relaxing, fun, and confidence boosting while improving their reading skills. If your pet would like to be a listening volunteer please visit Sit Stay Read for more information.
