Get your pet fixed for free at the SPCA this month! »
That’s right, FREE! But only during February. You may recall we broached this subject earlier this month, as Chan Marshall (Cat Power), Katherine Heigl, Rachael Ray, and Vegansaurus are all advocates of getting your pet FIXED! There are too many unwanted animals that end up in shelters everyday. Listen to
Jennifer Scarlett, D.V.M. and co-president of the SF SPCA, says, “We hope our efforts will encourage pet guardians across the city to make the responsible choice to have their pet spayed or neutered. If you want San Francisco to be a No-Kill city, the most important thing you can do is spay or neuter your pet.”
You can schedule an appointment at (415) 554.3030, and learn more online. We also got a tip that people cancel their appointments every day. So if you neglect to make one, or all the spaces are filled, you could still get in by calling the SPCA in the morning to see if any appointments have opened up. This means fasting your dog or cat the night before, but it will be worth it if you can get in there!
Rachel Ray does good for some animals (still cooks others) »
Look, I’m going to be honest here—I really love Rachael Ray. When I have extra money, I buy her magazine; if I had cable, I’d watch 30 Minute Meals. Her recipes are SO EASY to veganize, and they are quick! I know you all want to make a fast dinner during the work week. Stop hating and start veganizing her simple, yet tasty and creative, recipes! Plus, she didn’t go to culinary school and neither did I. No pretension here!
Anyway, on to something that has to do with animals. Rachael Ray has teamed up with Katherine Heigl to save some dogs! Let’s not talk about how I feel about Katherine Heigl, okay? (Let’s just say that I love Grey’s Anatomy and cry to it every week.)
On her recent show, Rachael Ray donated $150,000 dollars to Katherine Heigl’s animal charity, the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. It’s all about raising awareness about spaying and neutering dogs. Which reminds me of the only PETA poster I ever loved (and even owned, but sadly lost in some move between apartments in Chicago):
Not Rachel or Katherine, but instead: Chan Marshall, not wearing feather earrings! She also wants you to spay or neuter your pets.
