Paw Posie Painting with Artist Rosemary
Small Business Saturday, November 30, 2013, 10 AM - 2 PM
We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate and support small business than to have the Paw Posie artist join us for the day! Rosemary will be in the house creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art from your dog or cat's pawprints! Their paw prints will be made using water-color paint, which will be embellished by Rosemary to become a Paw Posie! Watch it happen right before your eyes.
For each Posie painted $4 will be donated to the animal charity that one of our customer's suggests! When you purchase a painted Paw Posie that day you will have an opportunity to write down the name of the animal charity to which you would like the donation to go. We'll draw the lucky charity at the end of the day that will receive $4 from each painting.
Walk-ins welcome as time permits, but we encourage you to give us a call to set aside a time slot for your Paw Posie. Our number is 410-263-8683 and Paw Posies are $28 each. If you are unable to make it, but would like one made with your pet's paw prints, pick up a Paw Posie Kit! Click here for details. They make great gifts for the holiday too!

Cruisin' for Compassion
Ben's Waterfront Benefit Bash
Amazing...Thank you! Our September 8, 2012 event sold-out and raised over $14,000 with an additional $10,000 donation from The Squires Group.
This $24,200 donation to Animal Legal Defense Fund will support their efforts to introduce Animal Law through Law Schools, work with District Attorneys to insure animal abusers are charged and convicted of their crimes and represent animals in the legal system when they need a voice!
Our dog Ben and 300+ other dogs were represented by ALDF and removed from horrific conditions with a hoarder. Their work is so important!
Through the generous support of businesses and individuals, the evening offered 80 silent auction prizes, a raffle with Dick Smothers Bike, tasty food and refreshments including a wine tasting by Wine Cellars of Annapolis. Fortunately the night's festivities were captured by Red Leash Pet Photography. Check back, we'll have the link to the photo video here shortly! Check for photos on our Facebook page too.

All proceeds donated to Animal Legal Defense Fund who rescued our Jack Russell Ben and continues to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals. Special Thanks to our sponsors...
We are grateful for all Animal Legal Defense Fund does improve the lives of animals. Our little Jack Russell terrier, Ben, was rescued, along with over 300 other dogs, from a puppy mill/hoarder that had them “living” in unthinkable circumstances. This is one of many court cases initiated by ALDF where they speak on behalf of the animals. Thanks to ALDF, Ben’s court case was won so he and all his former fur friends can now live in homes with love. Unfortunately the work continues, so join us in supporting ALDF.
