I had a gift card to Lush, and I finally found myself in the area of the San Francisco store. What did I buy?
According to the site, “every penny that you pay for a pot, excluding the tax, goes to grassroots charities all around the world.” There were a few organizations — printed on the pot — more than worthy of my $21.95. Though it wasn’t itemized as such (you don’t ONLY donate to the charities pictured on your specific Charity Pot), I took home the one with Swan Center Outreach printed on the label.
Dedicating to providing “a safe and loving environment, for previously abused and neglected animals,” it seemed like a sure thing as soon as I turned the pot around to read its label. The Colorado-based organization works in leadership with horses and dogs, therapeutic animal handling, and local 4H groups, among other community efforts. It’s largely an educational facility, and it doesn’t accept animals from private citizens. The animals that do come the center’s way are from affiliated rescue facilities. Whether or not you agree with the group’s spiritual angle, I 100-percent agree with helping animals who need a hand.

Just over a year ago, I wrote about a new animal rescue group called Seer Farms, based out of Jackson, NJ. What makes Seer Farms different from your average organization? Well, they don’t take in unwanted or abandoned pets and rehome them. Instead, they provide temporary care and shelter for pets whose owners are in crisis. This unique mission is why I’ve picked them for my Charity Crush. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s no secret around here that I have a huge soft spot for poms (and for the record, I love all animals). So to a lot of people, it seemed natural that I would work with Potato Chips Pomeranian Rescue, but the truth is that PCPR were the only rescue that would take me up on my offer to photograph their adoptables when I was first getting my feet wet in pet photography. Through my pro-bono with PCPR, I’ve gotten to known the volunteers that work behind the scenes to save these animals. Read the rest of this entry »
