Party Time - And The Fuzzies Are Invited
There are two animal parties taking place this month.
Tomorrow Saturday 13th December: Yuletide season of love @ Sid's Pub, 34 Lorong Rahim Kaju 14, Taman Tun Dr, Ismail, 6000 Kuala Lumpur(Close to One Utama Shopping Centre) (Tel: +603 77277437) Dec 13 3PM-8PM
Message from Friends Furry Farm: "Celebrate this coming joyful season by spreading the joy of giving to those who are in need! There will be several activities lined up for the day such as Pub quizzes, Lucky draw with some fab prizes such as golden class tix @ Signature, massage spas, pet product hampers, etc. Grand prizes are pet leather bag carrier, 3-course dinner for 2 in the privacy of your own home, chocolate xmas hampers and so much more! There's also a surprise activity at the end of day where winners will get to enjoy dinner with some new friends - contributed by our gracious sponsors! Do bring your family & friends along this Saturday, Dec 13 from 3PM - 8PM @ Sid's Pub, TTDI. Happy hours extended till 9PM!"
"While Sid's pub is a dog friendly place - On that day however, we are cautioning visitors not to bring as the pub space is small & we're afraid the dogs might go ballistic with the noise and crowd! The contribution per raffle ticket is RM50 and it comes with a free pint & free bar snacks from 3-7pm plus pub quizzes & lucky draws as in poster..."
"We are negotiating with food suppliers to get reasonable rates to purchase dog food for the farm but as you know, most 20KG bags goes for RM100 above. So as you can see, RM50 is less than half the amount we need just to purchase a 20 kg bag."
"And we are feeding one 20kg bag per day for 60 dogs at least (yes, I know that is sad but that is the current ratio!) and the target is to achieve a 3-month food supply. So if you think about it, the contribution is at bare minimum... Hope you can spread the word around that we really need help as you can see, the dogs really do need it!"
"FFF will also be selling raffle tickets @ Sid's Pub every weekend evening, starting Nov 28.. Every Fri & Sat from 8pm till 11PM Sundays from 12PM - 7PM"
"And of course, on the day itself Dec 13, 2008... See you there!"
On Saturday 20th December: The SPCA Animal Shelter in Jalan Kerja Ayer Lama, Ampang will be having a Christmas Paw-ty on Saturday, 20th December 2008, from 12.00 noon to 3.00 p.m.
The prices for the buffet lunch is RM20 per adult and RM10 for children under 12. Guests are required to bring a non-gift wrapped gift (pet food, toy, treats or pet supplies) for the shelter animals, to help offset the costs of operating an animal shelter.
(NOTE: ALL FOOD SERVED IS HALAL AND THERE WILL BE VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN OPTIONS)
Please e-mail Ee Lynn from Combat Loaded and Mission Ready at wongeelynnATyahoo.com if you are interested in attending the said event, and please spread the message to your friends. Well-behaved pets are most welcome to attend this function and will not have to pay for the lunch.
For the month of December, we are also collecting pet food and supplies, old towels and blankets and old newspapers for the animal shelter as part of our "Do The Animals Know It's Christmas?" campaign.
For your information, the SPCA has a Charity Shop selling pre-loved goods and we also hold Jumble Sales at least twice a year to raise funds for the shelter. If you are spring cleaning your house and have unearthed lots of old clothes, books, knickknacks and electrical appliances to give away, or simply have old newspapers and old towels for reuse, please donate them to the SPCA for its very worthy work of helping animals that cannot help themselves.
To tie this back in with environmental and green living issues, the SPCA performs an important environmental service by vaccinating and neutering pets, surrendered animals and stray animals, thus reducing the risk of zoonosis, disease and stray overpopulation.
Thank you and please help us spread the word.
If you've time and are in KL/Klang, please go and offer your support.
