I am stupidly in love with animals, especially dogs and any sort of fuzzy little baby (and baby elephants, I might add). Most of my charitable donations every year go to animal charities, especially in the event of a major disaster when the needs of animals–particularly farm animals that are often the sole support of families in the developing world–are often forgotten.
So I’m very happy to be part of a group of romance authors helping out T.E.A.M. Dog & Cat Rescue, a non-profit animal rescue charity based in Toronto, Canada. This all-volunteer charity rescues at-risk animals and helps them find their forever homes.
T.E.A.M. is currently running a fantastic on-line auction Valentine’s Auction on facebook, with some wonderful auction items. I’ve already made a financial donation and I’m also part of a fabulous book basket up for grabs, organized by the lovely historical romance writer, Lila DiPasqua. 100% of the money raised will go toward vet bills for the animals who’ve been rescued. Check out the romance basket up for bid!
The basket is just one of the many great items donated for the auction. So if you’d like to help our furry friends, please check out the Online Valentine’s Auction and consider placing a bid or simply making a donation to the charity. Even better, why not make a bid on behalf of your sweetie–it’s a great way to show some love this Valentine’s Day!
You can find the auction here on facebook, and also check out the rules and regs for bidding (items can be shipped–you don’t have to live in the Toronto area).
The animals thank you!
