SFAfA DONATION METER
DogTrekker.com is a collaborative effort by a team of dog lovers who want to share what they’ve learned during 200 combined years of on-the-road and on-the-trail adventures. They’ve uncovered the best places in Northern California for you and your pup to stay, eat, hike, splash and play and listed them by county or region on www.dogtrekker.com.
DogTrekker.com is currently offering a dollar donation to Northern California rescue organizations for everyone who signs up to receive just one free weekly newsletter. If you love it, continue to receive the newsletter free of charge. If you would like to opt-out after reading the first copy, you can easily do so as well, and the organization will still receive the donation. It’s a win-win for all.
To sign-up, simply go to www.dogtrekker.com/rescues, fill in the form and under Referring Rescue/Shelter, choose your organization, enter the code and click the Register button. Again, there is no cost to anyone that participates in this program. If you should have any questions about this program, you can call Roxanne Kendrick, Managing Partner, DogTrekker @ 415.459.DOGS.
FREE PET PORTRAIT
San Francisco Aid for Animals has partnered with Pet Food Express’ “My Mutt Program” to bring you this offer: Donate $250 or more to SFAfA and you qualify for a free portrait of your pet taken by a professional pet photographer. The portrait will be enlarged to poster size and displayed at a local Pet Food Express for at least 6 months. When the poster is taken down it will be given to you free of charge. This is our way of saying thank you for your support of SFAfA.

Julianna had already opened her home to three large rescue dogs and a cat, and initially searched for a different arrangement for Alex.
