Help Animals In Need Simply By Walking

I just had a great app shared with me called ResQWalk,  and I’ll be giving it a full test run later.

The whole idea is that the app uses the GPS on your phone to track how much you walk and your favorite rescue gets some money.  When you first sign in you can choose which rescue to walk for. If you want to walk for more than one you simply have to reset it to the new one. Many local rescues are already signed up so it shouldn’t be to hard to find your favorite, and the app allows you to follow as many rescues as you want. Obviously I’ll be walking for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, but I may from time to time walk for another.

You can download the app for either iOs or Android. It also helps you find local pet friendly areas such as parks, vets, lodging, etc. All in all a great resource for people with animal companions.

It’s that easy to help animal rescues get much needed funds. Every bit helps!

Big News From the DRC Workshop

As many of you know I’ve been mentioning some big things in store for Del Roba Creations. Today one of them got finalized. DRC will be at the Ottawa Pet Expo this year as a vendor!

Now I know some of you may be thinking “Why is this big news? It’s just another convention.”

Yes it is but, besides being the largest one I’ve done, the Pet Expo has added a new area this year that in my own small way I helped it come about. The Pet Crafter Marketplace!

Happy to say that the website is almost completely updated. Added coats and collars to the pet goods as well as scarves and DelPack’s to people goods.

In the next few weeks you’ll be seeing a bunch of new designs come out of the DRC workshop in anticipation of some stuff we have going this fall. There will be new toys, beds and accessories for pets, and new DelPack Heat and Cold Therapy Pack designs.  All of them will be available through our Etsy shop and website, as well as in person if you live in the Ottawa area.

Happy Pawstomer – Grissom

I love receiving notes and pictures from people about how much their furry companions like the stuff I made for them.

Meet Grissom.

You met this little cuties sister in my earlier post. He finally decided to stay still long enough for a picture. Their mom commissioned me to make collars for them. I used this opportunity to try out making removable bow ties to match the collars.  Little did I know I’d stumble upon such a great model. I may see if he can be a future model for DRC!

Well… if he can stay still long enough. 😉

Willow’s mom commissioned me to make collars for her and her brother Grissom. I used this opportunity to try out making removable bow ties to match the collars.  Little did I know I’d stumble upon such a great model. I may see if she can be a future model for DRC! Look at that face!

AAW – Under My Wing Pug Rescue

This week’s Animal Awareness Wednesday feature is on Under My Wing Pug Rescue!

 umwpr_logo

Helping pugs in need and finding them a “forever loving home” where they can rest their heads at night.

Under My Wing Pug Rescue is a registered charitable organization (822 842 290 RR0001) based in Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA & run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to providing a bridge between a pug’s past life and its better future.

They provide pugs with medical care including; sterilization & vaccination, loving attention, comfort, companionship, as well as offering a loving forever home.

The rescue is run completely by volunteers who donate their time, effort, and skills for the love of pugs.

They don’t have a building, formal business hours or provide an animal shelter where people can drop by, choose a pug, and then take it home. Instead all the pugs are placed in loving foster homes until they find their forever homes.
