Beading Divas to the Rescue

one-of-a-kind

2014 was a very good year.

This year we INC’d ourselves in Arizona. We are a non-for-profit corporation. We are not a 501c3.

In April we crossed over the $100,000 threshold in bracelet fundraising.

Tucson Beading Divas

5th anniversary celebration

In May, the Arizona Daily Star wrote a great article about our accomplishments and promoted our Applause for a Cause event at La Cocina in downtown Tucson as did The Morning Blend.

More than 100 people enjoyed the festivities that night. We had live music and giveaways. Hermitage Cat Shelter won the evening’s net proceeds provided by La Cocina and ChiLuvBug Small Dog Rescue won the honor to be the following month’s Beading Divas recipient.

A good time was had by all. The original 7 Beading Divas all wearing tiaras are: Angy Shearer, Michelle Caillet, Loren Dawn, Cynthia David, Lizzie Mead, Glenda Taylor, and Karyn Zoldan. Please follow us on Facebook.

In 2014, we fund-raised for:

–2 cat charities
–1 wildlife charity
–1 farm sanctuary
–1 organization advocating no kill
–1 service dog organization
–4 dog rescues
–1 greyhound rescue
–1 month vacay

Tucson Greyhounds Fundraising: Chili My Soul 2014/12/26

Beading Divas to the Rescue

I’m ready for my forever home.

Chili is a happy, outgoing 2 year old who had 7 fractures in his rear leg (a racing related injury). Dr. Goodman thought they would have to amputate, but instead was able to put “Humpty Dumpty” back together again.

He has had many bumps on the road to recovery, but has come out on the upside. He also developed MSRA at one point. Chili had multiple surgeries to get him to this point.

His bill has been very expensive…more than $6,000.

Is one dog worth $6,000?

Hell yes!

This happy boy Chili behaves just like any 2 year old greyhound now and walks perfectly on his rebuilt leg. Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption believes that every greyhound should be in a forever home and that is why Beading Divas to the Rescue chose this charity for the month of December.

Just like the dog or dogs lying on your couch or your lap — Chili deserves his forever home.

During the month of December, all bracelet fundraising benefits broken leg greyhounds.

If you don’t want to buy a bracelet or three, consider making a direct donation.

Beading Divas Bracelets Help Tucson Injured Greyhounds 2014/12/01

Downey required shoulder surgery

For the month of December, Beading Divas to the Rescue is jazzed to be raising funds for Jackie’s Fund for injured greyhounds under Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption.

Bracelet sales will specifically help pay for broken legs and other extraordinary veterinary costs as dogs transition from track to forever homes.

Jackie’s Fund Recipient
Downey had a dislocated shoulder and the Veterinary Specialty Center of Tucson popped it back into place. Wanda, proprietor of the Lazy Grey Ranch, took him to recover when the shoulder popped out again. So Downey had major shoulder surgery to hold the shoulder in place until scar tissue can build up and the shoulder can stay in place on its own.

Downey is a very tall and lanky boy. He is a true love who listens well, gets along with everyone and enjoys being in a home. He goes for his first post surgery check up next week. (Paws crossed)

The seven founding Beading Divas have deep roots to the greyhound rescue community with retired race dogs in their past, their present, their couch, and their future. Like most everyone under the SA Greys umbrella, we believe that retired racers deserve to live out their lives as beloved pets and want to provide these dogs with that opportunity.

Follow SA Greys on Facebook.

Christmas and Chanukah are on the horizon. These one-of-a-kind bracelets make great gifts for your stylish friends and family. And really, is there such a thing as too much bling?
