How to share the love for Valentine's Day!

I love making curry on a cold day!   That sweet spicy aroma simmering on the stove almost warms me up as much as the seasoning in the dish!  
We are coming up to one of the 'sweetest' times of the year .... Valentines Day!  If you are looking for a lovely way to warm your own heart ... or to share with your sweetheart ... then you are in luck!   Animal rescue folks put the fun in fundraiser and  there are  a few things to choose from!
  • At any time, local artist Tracey Jessiman will do a painting of your pet for the incredibly modest fee of $100.00 ... with all proceeds going to ARC.  Can you possibly imagine a better gift certificate for the animal lover in your life?
  • As I mentioned yesterday, on Saturday, from ten am till two pm, the Meow Movers Adoption Fair and Mini Market will be held at Farrel Hall, 276 Windmill Road Dartmouth.   See poster on yesterday's post.
  • Later on that same day, the second annual Dancing for Dogs will be held at the Lions Hall in Eastern Passage.  Tickets are ten dollars each and I do believe that they are being sold in advance.   See poster below for details. All proceeds for East Coast German Shepherd Rescue
  • If you feel like trying your luck or tucking tickets in a Valentine Card, local artist Joan Hushard has donated a beautiful painting called Deer in a Field ( see picture below ) and tickets are being sold on this for $5.00 each, with all proceeds going to PET Projects
  • SHAID is running its Have a Heart Campaign with a Wall of Hearts on display at the shelter.   Hearts may be purchased for a minimum donation of a dollar and you could put your own or your sweethearts name on one!
  • The GPAC folks are running a Show us Your Heart campaign at Global Pet Foods in New Minas.  Buy a heart and Science diet will donate a dollar.  Make a five dollar donation and receive ten bonus air miles!
  • All month long it is Feline February at the Yarmouth SPCA.   Check their Facebook Page for details and to meet the daily Valentine Purrsonals!
PS ... if I have missed anything else happening this weekend, please let me know!
