Help Wanted! Pets Add Life (PAL)

With today being Labor Day in the U.S. my Mom and I wanted to share a special place that has a special message. We have a "job" for you that shouldn't be hard labor at all, but the completion of this "job" is super important.

Our friends at Pets Add Life (PAL) have a special campaign taking place right now and YOU can HELP! 

Across the country there are millions of homeless pets who need your help. All homeless pets deserve a second chance.

How can YOU help?

You can PLEDGE to adopt your next pet-Mom wasn't able to adopt another pet but she did the next best thing. She paid for someone else to adopt a pet! You can read about that here

Mom and "Tigre"
before she paid for the
wonderful people to adopt him!

"Tigre" the "I'm Adopted" Sign
was posted after Mom
paid for the kind people
to adopt him!

UPDATE! Since mom originally wrote the blog post that she mentioned above,   Mom DID hear from the sister of the woman who Mom bought Tigre for and he is doing super well!! Here he is with an update!
FROM OUR FACEBOOK MESSAGING: "He is doing great! He and the other cat are getting along fine. He is the sweetest thing! Always wants a rub when I visit! My sister grew them some kitty grass and they decided to play in the dirt instead, silly kitties smile My son calls him Tigre still, my sister calls him I guess he is Smokey Tigre lol"

You can PLEDGE to volunteer at your local shelter, if you can't be there physically shelters have HUGE lists of items that they always need. Drop by your local shelter or give them a call. They will be THRILLED to hear from you!

You can PLEDGE to take a photo of a homeless pet and share it. This is super easy to do and MANY of you already do this on a regular basis. If you notice on the side of this blog, we regularly display a widget from PetFinder  that lists a local cat every day who needs a home!

See? I told you the tasks involved with this "job" are super easy to perform! sure to go over to Pets Add Life (PAL) on Facebook and make YOUR PLEDGE NOW!

After you make your pledge you can enjoy this great video from the Pets Add Life (PAL) YouTube Page if you have trouble viewing the video you can watch it by clicking here

  1. Aunty Caren,
    I like that name: Pets Add Life. Mama supports the SPCA and so far has managed to get some of her friends to adopt some cats. Pray for more prosperity in our life so that our dream of having our own no-kill shelter will come through. har har har *happy laughs*

  2. We really hope all the animals find their forever homes :)xx

  3. We too hope the animals find a forever home soon. Take care and have a great Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Caren, great PSA for them...but even better is the update on Tigre. Really glad you got that! :-)

  5. Yeay for the update of Tigre! We were a little sad when there seem to be no update on Tigre just after he went home with his family so this is great news! :)

  6. Nice to hear that Tigre is doing so well...we remember when your Mom helped him find his furrrever home Cody - your Mom gets a BIG HUG for that! PAL - what a WONDERFUL thing.....I know it stands for Pets Add Life but for homeless pets it stands for People Add Life!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  7. Wow ! What a great news to hear today !
    Hooray and purrs for homeless to have home !!!
    My wish is SUPER STRONG,you know ?
    Because it's the wish from birthday boy ; )
    I'm four !!!!

    Miss you and your mommy
    Lots of luv

  8. Your mom is truly an angel and we love her dearly, Cody!

    So glad to hear that Tigre is doing well and we hope many many other pets can find their homes soon.

  9. There will definately be an adoption in our future.. We are just not sure of the when of it....

  10. What a wonderful idea! Your mommie is super. I will let my mom know about this and see what she can do. Thanks for letting us know about the adoptions and pledge for another. Makes me so sad to think of furries without a home.

  11. We're so glad Tigre is doing well! That was such a nice thing for your mom to do, Cody!

  12. Gorgeous Cody!! Your mum is super duper!! What a wonderful gesture! We are so glad she heard from terrific Tigre's family - we are so happy all is well!! Yay! take care

  13. What a fabulous idea! And look at Tigre - how happy he looks. So pretty. Tooey says you are a good lady, Caren! (And Tooey can really relate to the toilet paper love!) We will tweet this!

  14. We're going to start by investigating the petfinder widget!
    Thanks and a Purring Monday to you!

  15. Yay Caren and Cody for posting about this idea. It is terrific. We also love the story about Caren for the adoption of a cat for someone else. That is just fantastic. We will do our pledge eventually. But good idea.
    Take care.

  16. I loved hearing an update on Tigre! Your idea of paying the adoption fee for someone else so a cat can find a forever home is absolutely wonderful, and I hope others take it and run with it.

  17. What a great post Caren and Cody! Me thinks yous two is the bestest! And
    Dearest Cody, me hopes me has not breaked your heart. Yous is a very special friend - a blessing that me treasures with all my heart.

    @Nellie nope!! There are other kitties in the sea...Love, Cody

  21. I LOVE the pictures... and what a BRILLIANT idea! (Think of all the happy endings we might see/hear about if we all remembered to give just a little more often... :))

  22. Never heard of PAL, but I'm gonna go over and check them out! I do my best to help out rescue kitties over at Daily Dose, as I'm sure you know, and your kitties enjoy their donation presents, when you open them MOL!
    Thanks for the info!

  23. Glad to hear the update for Tigre! And I'm very happy he is doing very well!!

  24. Cody, your mom is very kind hearted! We must look in to similar schemes over here! xx

  25. That was very nice to pay for a kitty to be adopted. We help post cats and dogs who need home son our FB pae and Twitter. We are kind of our own shelter her with all of us so Mom has her hands full and we don't need more critters.

  26. That is such a wonderful, wonderful story!!!

  27. Hey Cody! You know I couldn't agree more...adopt, adopt...but...we are moving and they would not allow cats, only dogs. Dad and Mom asked for a change in policy, and Dad completed the app and included my blog URL.The owner liked it so much, she let us live in her house, but only ONE cat. And, I, frankly, am scared of other we are currently a one cat family...wish we could have two more...paw pats, Savvy

  28. We can't zacklee pledge to adopt 'nuther pet right now, but now that I gotted "tutored" the Human is thinking that one main hurdle to doing so has been removed. She is sort of contemplating--she dunno though--I am SOOOOOOOO temperamental and easily frightened and upset, she does not know about rocking my world. We will has to see. XOXOXO

  29. Wouldn't it be wonderful if every kitty had a forever home?

  30. Hey, we like that idea! Whoever came up with it is a genius!

  31. we have our feets crossed every buddy will find a home
    Benny & Lily

  32. That's so heartwarming! So happy for Tigre and his new family! ...and what a wonderful way of giving, Miss Caren. <3

    And that video is HYSTERICAL!!! Love it!

    ; ) Katie

  33. What a great post! We volunteer at our shelter, and help all the pets there. We always adopt, but we're full here right now.

    Yay about Tigre!

  34. That was so nice of you to pay for someone to adopt a baby! Every kitty baby deserves a nice home.

  35. Yay! I'm glad you heard from Tigre!

  36. Caren,

    Your post about Pets Add Life PAL was wonderful. I immediately went to Petfinder and obtained a widget like yours for my blog. Maybe someone will see it and adopt a friend. Thanks for the inspiration! EB

  37. @Elizabeth THANK YOU! your comment totally made my day! So glad you added the widget to your blog. Have a great day!

    @rumpy me too!

    @Sierra thanks so much. It made Mom feel good to do it!

    @meowmeowmans OMG you do MORE than I could EVER HOPE TO!

    @Katie ya see? Mom isn't all bad :) Love, Cody

    @Benny & Lily us too!

    @Oui Oui we agree!

    @Sweet Purrfections Amen

    @Spitty Mom totally understands. that is how it was when she had my Grandpa Bobo. It was just him because he would have been AWFUL with other pets!

    @Savvy "only dogs?" That's unusual! It's usually the other way around. Mom understands because my Grandpa Bobo was the same way. he was the only pet.

    @Brian thank you!!

    @Cheri thank you!! Oh yessss you have more than your share! lol

    @CATachresis yeah...she can be! She tries to hide that side MOL!

    @Tamago we are too!

    @Andrea I know you do A LOT! OMC Mom is awful! She has yours to open yet and another package! Will I EVER get my toys????? Love, Cody

    @Glam/Kitty thank you! There are so many who do so much more!

  38. You rock Caren, so nice that Tigre has a forever home now :-)

    Happy Labour Day!!!
