AAW – Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue

This weeks AAW – Animal Awareness Wednesday spotlight is on Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue!

“Sit With Me is an Ontario-based rescue who strongly believes that shelter dogs deserve better than being abandoned by those who were tasked with being responsible for them.” 

“We do not discriminate based on breed, age, medical background or current medical state. Those animals that need them most, those who are in jeopardy of losing their lives due to space or time in a shelter, will be the dogs we seek out for rescue. “

I had the pleasure of meeting some of the dogs from SWM at the Rescue Block Party a few weeks ago. All of the dogs were well behaved and happy as clams to be out and about. Some of you may remember the little guy I shared a picture of whose bandanna was so big it was a cape (pictured above). His name is Buzz and he’s currently one of the featured adoptable on their website.

Rescue Block Party Was A Success!!

Rescue Block Party hosted by Chew-That in Ottawa. It was to help raise funds for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, Sit With Me, and the Ottawa Dog Rescue. It was a hot afternoon but a great time was had by all. Especially all the puppies in attendance. They even got to take pics with a firetruck! Only saw one cat there though, and he was amazing. A huge Main Coon named Ranger. He was bigger than some of the dogs I met and he was the runt of his litter. Beautiful and majestic guy.  I managed to take a few pics while there, many of them of the same little guy who I would have adopted if I could have. All of the adoptable animals had  bandannas on saying they were adoptable and what organization they were with. This one little guy was so small that his bandanna turned into a cape. He was all sorts of super!

For anyone in the Ottawa area here’s a great event in support of three local rescue  groups.  I’ll definitely be there! I’ll be doing some baking (ginger cookies & cupcakes) and may have some kitty toys for sale.
