You’re Not Seein’ MY Nose This Month!

Now, Mango. It’s NOSEVEMBER. The whole idea is, we wanna see your little snoot. It’s no good if you just hide it like that no wait a minute yes it is good forget I said that.

“This is Mango, our rescue puppeh. When it gets cold he covers his pointy little nose. We call him our ‘therapy dog’ because whenever someone’s sad, he intuitively knows and sits on their lap to cheer them up. PS- Your site has blessed so many lives. I believe that we each find own little corner of the ‘garden’ and tend it, and that all of you at CO have found a special place in many people’s hearts. Thank you so much for what you do. Please also send Meg warm congratulations on her new little twins.” -Jenn K.

How ‘Bout Some Nice Tofurkey Instead?

Clipboard01(Mr. Turkey says: “I pretty much despise Thanksgiving. Nothing personal, just business.”)

“Time to celebrate turkeys! I wonder if your readers would like to see this adorable rescued baby turkey who looks like a cotton ball? Who needs Butterball, when Farm Sanctuary’s got a wittle cottonball?” -Meredith T.

The Adopt a Turkey Project gives people the chance to sponsor one of the rescued birds who reside at the group’s shelters in New York and California. It’s provided care for more than 1,000 rescued turkeys over the last 25 years.

“If you decide they’re worthy, (*We do.)..you’re welcome to link to our blog. (*We just did.) My husband Zach Z. is the photographer. I provide artistic direction. (Like, ‘We need more photos of Cambodian puppies, stat!’)”

Hazel Conks Out

“I met little Hazel here at an adoption event run by the Maryland Animal Sanctuary. She’s 8 weeks old and was rescued from a kill shelter in North Carolina. She was so sleepy she just conked right out in my arms. Keeping it Qte in B’more, Sue.”
