Magical unicorns exist. They're often overlooked because they're imperfect - they've got a broken leg or a skin condition, they're over (or under) weight, they're older, maybe their vision is a bit impaired, their mobility limited. They're the dogs at the animal shelters most people might walk past. But Los Angeles-based rescue A Purposeful Rescue sees them and passionately advocates for these charming and adorable cherubim of all shapes and sizes, pulling them from the shelter system and giving them a second (or third or fourth) chance at a happy life overbrimming with love and care in forever homes.
Between us, Deb and I have over half a dozen rescue dogs (and we're eternally grateful to our husbands for being such massive animal lovers - shout out to David and Ned - we love you guys!). One of my own is an APR magical unicorn and he's everything magical and wonderful that dogs are and he makes me laugh every goddamn day. This month, Puka is My Homie's (that's Puka in the pic above!) momma, Christine, launched a fundraiser for APR -- you can help the magical unicorns by contributing a small donation directly or sending a gift from @APurposefulRescue’s Amazon Wish List AND IN RETURN you will automatically be entered in a raffle to win some awesome prizes for you and your own magical unicorn!
We donated a pair of our super pretty limited edition African cloth pillows, custom-made here in Los Angeles (measuring 20x20 and with a faux down insert) and the other prizes are mega awesome, too...alpaca blanket from Allkupets, paw hoodie from Crazy Rebels, custom pet mug from Hadley Clay Studio, cotton rope leash from Lasso Dogs, silicone mold set to make homemade dog treats from MyLeDogue, custom pet portrait from Run Love Dog, a bandana, bow tie collar, and toy for your pup from The Max Bone, and a GPS for your pup's collar from the TrackR!
The fundraiser ends on February 9th and is happening right NOW, so you can start saving the magical unicorns once you've finished reading this post. ;)
with love and magical unicorn pixie dust,
