Pet Blogger Hop / Love is in the Air #Pawpawty!

Hosted by @frugaldougal,  #PawPawty fun continues round the
clock, starting at 2 p.m. ET today and continuing through 2 p.m. ET
Sunday, Feb. 13. Joining a pack of anipal volunteers,
@CosmoHavanese will be your quizmaster, giving away
fabulous prizes from generous sponsors,  starting at 10 p.m.  ET
tonight!  He'll be back at it at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday, spinning
some romantic tunes for the pawpawtiers! 
It's time again to #Pawpawty! Once a month the animals on Twitter -- known as the anipals -- get together for virtual fun and games and raise REAL money for an animal organization in need. This month TWO animal shelters will benefit thanks to our pals at Pedigree!

First, the anipals  will be raising money for the Animal Welfare League of Queensland. Located in Australia, AWLQ was mostly unaffected by the unprecedented flooding in Queensland and has been able to care for those animals who were caught up in the floods.

Then, Pedigree stepped up to help a SECOND shelter in the United States! Pedigree will match** every dollar donated to the Pawpawty on February 12 -13 and donate those funds to Save-A-Pet in Grayslake, Ill., an organization dedicated to finding loving, quality homes for each cat and dog in its care. The adoption center is currently responsible for 500 animals.

If you've never been to a #PawPawty on Twitter, you can learn more about it at Every month there's a different theme and this month it's "Love is in the Air," just in time for Valentine's Day! So dress up in your Valentine's day finest or just come as you are, either way we'll know your heart is in it as we help the anipals who need it most!

**Maximum matched fund donation is $2,000

Now, let's go to the hop!


  1. Lot of great parties going on! I love Valentine's Day! Woohoo!

  2. Wow, what a coincedence! We live in Illinois, and when our Mama was just a little kid, her family adopted their very first dog from Save-A-Pet! She was a shy little puppy who had been abused and was afraid of people, but our Mama's family helped her come out of her shell a lot. Sadly, Zip died of cancer when she was only six years old. :(

  3. Dogs are man’s best friend for good reason as they’re intuitive, never judge, and always excited to see you and be by your side. If you want to give a gift to pet owner, get ideas from
