Save an animal with a selfie for a cause! #UltraHug #selfie

Huggies is giving away $2000 grants for Community projects and organizations. Thanks Huggies! We wanted to nominate one of our favorite causes that has helped us out a few times since living back here in Mississippi.


When we "adopted" our dog Ari, while living in Memphis, we really weren't in a great position to keep him as our pet, but we couldn't find a shelter that would take him. Well, we couldn't find a shelter that wouldn't euthanize a puppy covered in mange that needed medical treatment and boarding for weeks or even months while he recovered. So, he became our baby in a less than ideal situation. That time it all worked out, but so many animals in the same situation would not have been so lucky. We have a special place in our hearts for rescue animals and have learned a lot since becoming pet parents of a dog that came to us with special needs.

Here in Jackson, CARA Community Animal Rescue & Adoption is a large True-No Kill Shelter and takes animals in that might be in the same situation as our pup was back in 2009 when I found him on the side of the road - thrown out.

CARA has also put together a Bree's Bark Park, a privately funded dog park for pups to get together and play. We loved the dog park we had access to at Shelby Farms in Memphis when we had no room for our dog to roam since we lived in an apartment.

CARA is meeting so many needs in our community and needs support. So, if you are looking for a cause to support check them out! I'd love for them to win $2k! If $25 a month will vaccinate 3 animals a month, then $2000 could vaccinate 10 animals a month for 2+ years.

To nominate your cause all you have to do is post a selfie of you and your baby with the hashtag for Huggies Snug N Dry #UltraHug and nominate your community project or CARA!


Nominate a cause close to your heart or if you can't think of one join me in nominating Cara of MS! If chosen as the Top 20 from all the nominees, we will be able to vote on your 10 favorite to receive a grant!

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
