Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Share your birthday loot | January 16, 2008

After a big celebration this past weekend, my (Ryan) 30th birthday is finally here.  I’ve gotten some great gifts over the last few days, including some money from a few relatives.  Before depositing the loot in my checking account (where it will be surely spent on important things like sneakers, t-shirts and ATM fees),  I’ll be writing a check to an animal shelter. 

Since I’m turning 30 the ammount will be 30 bucks, and it will go to the Martinsville-Henry County SPCA.  This is a new, huge, no-kill shelter near my hometown.  The last time we were there we stopped by and checked it out.  It’s a really nice place, with lots of indoor and outdoor room for the dogs, indoor playrooms for the cats, and some incredibly friendly people working hard for the animals in the community. 

When your birthday rolls around, pony up some cash before you spend it.  You can match your age, or simply give what you can.  What better way to celebrate than by helping some animals in need.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
