Looking for something to do this Valentine’s Weekend as an alternative to buying overpriced, unnecessary gifts, candies, flowers, and meals? Not that there is anything wrong with all of that, if that’s what you’re into. However, if you’re looking to spend your pennies on something that’s possibly more meaningful and will also bring some love into your life, you might want to check out The Bill Foundation’s “Have a Heart” dog adoption on Sunday.
The Bill Foundation is responsible for saving the lives of thousands of dogs in L.A. since its inception in 1998. It is a non-profit organization that is solely run by the tireless work of volunteers. This weekend’s event will highlight some of their “harder-to-place and special needs dogs,” who so very desperately need the care and safety of a forever home. Through my own personal experience with a troubled former street turned shelter dog, I can tell you that there is something really special and unique about rescuing this type of pet. The unconditional love and gratitude are both palpable and oh so worth it.
The “Have a Heart” dog adoption event is being held this Sunday, February 15th at Healthy Spot, which is located at 11110 Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica from 11am to 3pm. The main page for The Bill Foundation features handy links about the adoption process and available dogs.
Even if this is not how you want to celebrate your weekend, please pop over to the Wuffington Wag and click on the photo on the left side. Each click will earn The Bill Foundation $1. It’s an easy way to show a little love for the organization’s great work and for their dogs who truly have so much love to give.
