You may or may not know that I am a contributing writer for the best local pet publication, Sarasota Pet Magazine. Candice Botha, the owner of Sarasota Pet is very involved with the rescue communities and is always coming up with great ideas to help raise funds for our local rescues. You can help a local rescue group like our friends at Majical Miniatures by sponsoring one of their adoptable animals in the Sarasota pet rescue me pages.
The “Rescue Me” section of Sarasota Pet and Manatee Pet magazines is an opportunity to promote local businesses while helping area animal groups find homes for dogs and cats in need of forever homes. Priced at only $40 an issue (that’s $20 a month), local businesses can feature their logos, Web sites and telephone number in 1/8 page ads, along with a photograph and the name, age, gender and breed of an animal available for adoption at an animal group the business would like to sponsor. Also included in the ad is the name of the animal group and its phone number and Web site.
According to Mary Lupi, founder of Safe Haven Animal Rescue of Florida, each time one of the group’s dogs has been featured in the “Rescue Me” section of the magazine, it has been adopted!
From the price of the each ad, $20 (or 50%) of the cost of the ad is then donated to the animal group that has been sponsored.
Individuals also are welcome to sponsor animals in the “Rescue Me” section.
With each issue of Sarasota Pet and Manatee Pet, $460 or more is donated to our local animal groups from the “Rescue Me” section.
Contact Candace & let her know you want to rescue a pet from Majical Miniatures and that Backyard Getaway Sent you.
