Thankful Thursday on Friday!


ON FRIDAY!
Just wasn't enough time in the day yesterday, so it's Thankful Thursday on Friday! Lots of stuff going on out there, the weather is changing, Halloween's coming up, some of us will be honoring our loved ones who've left us on the Day of the Dead on November 2nd (or this weekend), and BlogPaws is sponsoring this year's Anipal Academy Awards, which will be held on Twitter over the weekend of November 11-13.

Today is the last day to cast your vote in The Anipal Academy Awards, so head on over there! There are two voting poll pages: General Nominations and Photo/Video Nominations. Vote for your favorites before 11:59pm PDT tonight! Then stay tuned for more details and to rsvp for the Ceremonies, which will be great fun. You might want to start thinking about who you'd like to go with and what you're going to wear... Just sayin'. 

One of the photo entries under 'Funniest Photo" is @eldad75 from Hope For Paws' little white dog Chase (below.) Chase is looking a little nervous because he's not only entered in this Anipal Academy Award contest, but also in a much bigger and much more important one for him and for Hope For Paws. Chase's mom, Audrey wrote a story about how rescuing Chase changed her life and entered it in the Your Life/ReadersDigest contest on Facebook.

Chase
I know I've already blogged about this a few times, but I really want to help them get some final votes down the home stretch!! In fact, I just blogged about it here last Saturday...

This is the Facebook Page to Vote on
If they win, they could have her story published, bringing publicity to their non-profit rescue work, and they COULD win $25,000 which they desperately need to continue the extreme animal rescues they do daily, along with the medical care, etc., each animal needs until they can be placed in a forever home.

Chase's rescue video is here: http://youtu.be/M4giaORFP5M
Audrey and Chase's story was in the lead for weeks but just fell back by 1000 votes this week. It's the only animal rescue organization in the competition. 

@Eldad is going to be interviewed today on ABC News about his rescue of Nili, who we are very happy to say was recently adopted into this loving forever home. Here's Nili's rescue video: http://youtu.be/fJhpaS486EU
Nili's new forever family
I know I ask you to vote, donate, forward and retweet a lot for Hope For Paws, but they've really got me by the heart, and once you see what they do, especially if you are ever able to spend some time with them personally, as I was, they'll have your heart, too.

Their beautiful book is sold out but they're now giving it away free online at: http://www.eldadhagar.com/ . You can also get to their Facebook page, Twitter page, Youtube page with their 130+ rescue videos, etc. from there.

Check it out, and please vote once a day for the next several days, and forward, email, tweet, blog, call and tell your friends to vote, too. Such a small thing could significantly impact the lives of animals in Los Angeles and around the country. Please vote HERE.

And we will all be very thankful!
