As many of you know, Tails to Remember is all about helping out Pets and Pet owners in many different ways. One way we are helping is by using some of our space to raise funds for those who have high vet bills and who's pets require a lot of care. The Helping Paw Project reached out to us a few weeks ago asking if we would be willing to have a couple of folks put in some of their art to sell to help them defray their veterinarian bills. We said sure.
I know a lot of people read the facebook post about Jack Davies
and his pot people, if not here is a link to it. With spring time temperatures (finally) getting here (and hopefully sticking around), we though this would be a good time to remind you of his "Pot People". His creations start at $25.00 for the small size, $35.00 for the medium and $50 for the Large. Custom orders are available too.
Fast Forward a few weeks. Heath and Angel brought some of their crafts and art in. Their works are helping them pay for healthcare needs for Mooch. Here's Mooch's story:
Mooch is a Beagle/Bassett mix. I got her in July of 2004 and the veterinarian said she was 4 weeks old, her Birthday is June 10th 2004. She got her name because she was begging for food the next morning and I said Mooch and she turned her head. She was found in the country by a neighbor boy. She doesn't like plastic grocery bags, my Mom thought that she might have been put in one and thrown out. We have had to use Banfield Vet for Mooch's care. In 2017 I called on them again because they were cheaper then our regular Veterinarian, and the same Dr wasn't going to be her Dr. The receptionist gave me the Dr's phone number. When I called, I told the receptionist that we didn't have alot of money, and that's how I found out about Carol Rodgers and The Helping Paw Project. The Helping Paw Project has helped a lot. Mooch is now13 years old and gets Cold Laser Treatments every 5 weeks. Mooch has also had dental issues and had to have a tooth extracted and her teeth cleaned.
Health builds bird houses and feeders as well as squirrel feeders.
The Bird Houses are $20-$25
The squirrel feeder is $20.00
The Bird feeder is $22.50
Angel creates unique jewelry and is starting to try her hand at quilling. Her bracelets, which run $30.00, are in honor of those pets who have crossed the rainbow bridge. The rich colored, faceted jewels are nestled in with small square paw print beads and feature a lobster claw clasp. Her necklaces are crocheted and embellished with pendants or beads. Quilling is her new found gift. Inspiring images and phrases are hand decorated with fine precision.
Next time your looking for a unique gift, please make sure you stop out and see what these local craftsmen have to offer and help them provide quality healthcare for their companions.
