Adopt MeMe - 6 year old German Shepherd dog

Beading Divas to the Rescue is very proud to be raising funds for Tucson COLD WET NOSES for May 2012.

Cold Wet Noses started in 2005 but became an official non profit in 2010. Since their inception they have rehomed approximately 1,650 dogs!

Cold Wet Noses Tucson takes dog from Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) and finds foster and adoptable homes for them, usually at the 11th hour.

In 2011, Cold Wet Noses

–Rehomed 366 dogs in 2011 (a dog a day!)

–$42,000 of veterinarian bills

–Paid $6,100 for dog food, medications and other pet supplies

–CWN also receives dog food donations from PET CLUB and/or buys it from Costco. Currently they have 57 foster homes but the number changes daily

Cold Wet Noses Wish List

–more fold down wire crates – mostly size medium
–another pop up tent for adoption events
–a storage shed
–more volunteers to help walk dogs at PACC

One-of-a-kind bracelets cost $20 and every bracelet comes with a paw charm. Bracelets make great heartfelt gifts for MOTHERS DAY on May 13. The entire $20 goes directly to CWN. You can pay with cash or check made out directly to the charity. Be generous!

You can buy bracelets locally at:
Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954
Coyote Wore Sideburns Hair Salon, 630 N. 4th Avenue, 623-7341 (for May only)
Sissy’s Pet Grooming Salon, 7350 N. La Cholla Blvd., 229-9898

You can also buy bracelets online via Etsy (add $5.50 S&H). An anonymous person who adopted her dog through Cold Wet Noses three years ago will be matching Etsy bracelet sales dollar for dollar (less S&H). Wow!
