The WagAware Ruff-olution has begun and we are so excited that great dog magazines, such as WOOF!, are recognizing all that we are trying to do for dog welfare! Check out the entire magazine here (http://www.woofmag.in/digital_magazine.asp?issue=sept2013) and like them on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/Woofmagazine)!
We have challenged our WagAware supporters to PAW IT FORWARD and tell at least five friends about us and encourage them to purchase WagAware Charms, so our message continues to be heard and more homeless dogs get the chance to live the lives they deserve. We need to continue to be the voice of dogs and slowly chip away at the inhumane treatment of them. All dogs deserve protection and all the benefits of a civilized society, and it is our responsibility to make sure this happens!
Change occurs through education and WagAware and our sup-PAW-orters are educating the world that shelter and rescue dogs make wonderful pets! Check out how seriously Fritzee (below) took our Paw It Forward Challenge. She and her mommy have sold almost 50 charms (and counting…) to their friends! Fritzee’s mom is an avid animal lover, with over 25 years of experience in the equine industry. She runs The Hourse Source and has been an esteemed equine judge for over 20 years! Check out and please like her Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pages/The-Horse-Source-Inc/). We hope Fritzee and her mommy will inspire you to Paw it Forward too! Even if you tell one person about us, you help change the world for all dogs.
When you or your dog wears our charms, you show the world you love dogs, care about homeless dogs and are actually doing something to make a difference for homeless dogs! You inspire others to do the same. You are the reason change occurs. And change is happening…
Just this past week, the USDA announced a landmark rule to crack down on online puppy mills. The USDA announced plans to ensure that large-scale breeding facilities that sell puppies over the Internet, by phone, or by mail are licensed and inspected regularly for basic humane care standards (see New Puppy Mill Regulations).
While enforcement of these rules is critical, this represents a major step towards ending the terribly inhumane treatment of dogs in puppy mills, a long-held aspiration for animal advocates that has been decades in the making. Change often occurs in baby steps and this is one giant baby step.
Keep on Waggin’ on and Proudly! We thank all our WagAware supporters for being the voice of animals and our four-legged sup-PAW-orters who wear our charms proudly and loudly every day! Because of you, change is happening!
