I received this e-mail and thought you all might be interested in taking them up on their offer.
I just came across your website and I would love to invite your organization to participate in VetDepot’s newly launched Pet Hero program that rewards rescues, individuals, and shelters that contribute to the welfare and proper care of animals. VetDepot is an online pet medications retailer that sells only U.S. EPA/FDA approved pet meds at wholesale prices, making responsible pet care more affordable. We’re currently reaching out to animal welfare groups in the community that devote so much of their time and energy to animals that aren’t lucky enough to have a caring forever home.
By placing our Pet Hero badge on your homepage, you will automatically be placed on VetDepot’s product donation list and entered to win a $250 VetDepot gift certificate to stock up on any supplies your organization may need. To learn more, please visit http://www.vetdepot.com/donations.html. Upon acceptance into the Pet Hero program, we will send you the Pet Hero banner code for your website.
Our next Pet Hero $250 VetDepot gift certificate drawing will take place March 31, 2011. We will also be drawing two additional $50 VetDepot gift certificate winners that day to help more organizations benefit from Pet Hero.
Thanks for all you do,

It occurred to me that almost every weekend there is a benefit to raise funds for one of the local animal rescues. You could attend a play, concert, trivia night, art show, Texas holdem tournament, bowling and all kinds of other fun things!
If you're going to spend money going out anyway, why not help rescue animals at the same time by attending fun fundraising events. Plus you'll know you're in the company of like minded people!
Wouldn't it be great if all the events were listed in one place? STL animal lovers' social calendars could easily be full.
I've populated Shelter Buddies' calendar with some of the events I've noticed on Facebook. You can see a summary of it at the bottom of this page or see the calendar at: http://tinyurl.com/FR-Calendar.
If your organization or one of your volunteers has an online calendar - probably attached to an e-mail account, you can e-mail a calendar generated invitation to our calendar. Send invitations generated by your online calendar to firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be great if you would put the name of the rescue the event benefits first with a dash and then the name of the event for the title of the event, i.e. XYZ Rescue - Trivia Night. A link to your web page with more details about the event would also be helpful.
Let's help raise funds for the animals! Please pass the word around about our fund raising calendar.
