Join Us, Won't You?

Dog-A-Thon, The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County's annual walk for homeless pets is today, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.    Of course we'll be there.

 I'm hitting the trail with Craig,  teammates Shana and Sarah,  and Shana's husband, Jim.  Shana's bringing one of her pooches, I believe it's Blixa.  There might be a surprise guest too, but I'm still working out the details on that.  

If you're in the neighborhood, please come on by for the event!   And look for TEAM IBKC!  You can't miss us - we'll be carrying pro-kitty signs,  wearing pink shirts,  and looking like cat nerds.

For full details on Dog-A-Thon,  please visit the HS website.

I've got lots of numbers to crunch and tally,  and on Monday I'll be announcing our GRAND total.   OH MAN did we raise a lot of money.  You all are going to FLIP, when you hear it.

I'm not done thanking you, either.  I'll be doing a lot more of that on Monday, and giving some shout-outs to some special folks.

So, I am officially done asking for donations, but if anyone was still planning on making one,  I'll be leaving the Firstgiving widget on the blog for a week or so, so you can do so.

Now, I'm off to the walk.  Hope to see you there!!


  1. I'm 3,000 miles away, but am joining you in spirit and enthusiasm. Enjoy your phenomenal success!

  2. Have fun! I wish I still lived in Washington so I could be there.

  3. Congrats Team IBKC and the Humane Society! I hope you are having as beautiful weather as we have here on the east coast.

    I am planning on matching my Dogathon donation with one to my local no-kill shelter and now that your goal has been reached, would like to encourage other readers to do the same.

  4. CONGRATULATIONS to Laurie and crew! You did an amazingly GREAT job!!

  5. I absolutely LOVE you cat nerds! I'll be marching with you in spirit today!

  6. heckuva commute, but I'd be there otherwise :)

  7. Katey, great idea! I'll do it too. ASAP (our local county NO-kill cat shelter) deserves it.

  8. I'm right there beside you, Team IBKC!!!

  9. I am there in spirit, I have to attend class today until 1PM.

    GO IBKC and kitty nerds!!!

  10. I hope once you are back home you just kick back and relax for a couple of days. I'm probably not alone wondering how much withdrawal I'll suffer no longer checking the goal progrds meter!

  11. there in spirit all the way from AU.

  12. Jim, Blixa & I felt your support and presence, friends. And I'd like to add that Blixa was on her best behavior ~ another shining moment. :)
