I'm proud of our local animal shelter/spay and placement center here on the Coast.

Volunteers from all over come to help take care of abandoned or released animals. The South Mississippi Humane Society is a great place.

If you'd like to help Coast animals, please send a donation to them. The site has Paypal and snail mail address.

After you make a donation, email me and I'll mail one of my handmade, no skill involved wool stuffies. Some of the stuffies are cats, or owls or bats or space aliens. One is a cat model of St. Peregrine; another is a Cat St. Francis.
My stuffies are made of felted wool and stuffed with fiberfill/silk mixture. Some have buttons or beads.

I'm not sure what you are to do with these stuffies. Because some have buttons or beads, these won't be toys for little children or pets.

I understand that one of my stuffies is way up north displayed on a mantelpiece. Another is half way up the East Coast sitting on a guest room bed holding a TV remote.

Here are the important details.
Send your donation to the HSSM, not to me.
If you don't mind, please do not mention this blog or me. I'd rather not be mentioned.
After you make your donation, contact me at revlapin at the America online dot com with your address and I'll pick out a stuffie to mail to you.
International pals, because of the lingering postal issues here in the Disaster Zone, I will mail to the contiguous U.S. only. Sorry.

I think I've made 18 stuffies so this offer to receive one is first come, first served.

Thank you for helping our animals.

My donation is in the mail! The Humane Society has a great website and I know you admire their work. Your sweater cats are darling!

This is a great idea. And you are most talented in the stuffed creature department.

When I said the HSSM has a "release" program, I meant a "placement" program. For various reasons, I do not like to use the word "adoption" for placing pets. Not that I don't adore pets and think of the cats and dog as family but I reserve "adoption" for human beans.

Thanks for your support!

I am happy to say Mr. Purple Stuffie is proudly smiling as I read this blog entry to him!
