Ever since I heard about the Obamas' promise to their daughters that a dog would join the family, "win or (cough cough AS IF) lose"...I hoped they would rescue a dog instead of buying a dog!
As a matter of fact, the campaign was having a contest a few months ago in which 10 donors would be chosen to attend a private dinner with Sen. Obama where they could talk to him about their #1 concern. Mosaic Lady was hoping to win so she could bend his big ears about animal rights in the US, especially spay and neuter program importance.
Best Friends started a petition that has over 50,000 signatures and they say that Obama is aware of the growing support for this idea!
I have a gooooooood feeling about this, Kitties! Please go sign and tell everycat and everydog and everyperson you know!
(If anycats can figure out how to get one of their banners from myspace to work over here at blogger, please let me know! I am not so smart about those things and the banners do not click thru from here???)
