               "Stampin' out" Animal Abuse


Sponsored by Folded Hugs, Teri Klawitter , Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


HI :) Thanks for stopping by,

 I am new to webpage/blogs, but thought this might be a good way to get the word out.
 Along with my family and friends, I have two dear passions in life, my "girls" and Stampin' UP

My "Girls" are Rosie and "Stinker". Rosie, a Lab/Rottweiler mix, has been a part of our family for 7 years. She is a wonderful dog, sweet and kind, with nothing but love to give. We adopted our "grandpuppy" Stinker, about 2 years ago. Stinker was a back door bred pitbull in one of the roughest neighborhoods in Madison, WI. Unfortunately her first couple of years, had no stability and she was subjected to abuse and neglect. While she spent some weekends with us, I knew little of her true up bringing. She had very little supervision, little exercise and no consistant discipline. The abuse came from untrustworthy "friends" of my daughter and was often neglected at times as well. I promised her I would never let her go through that again. I risked my marriage bringing her home, but it wasn't long, before that sweet little girl won over my husbands heart as well. We are continuing to work with her as she proves she can be a good girl with proper training. ( Although I am sure Ceasar Millan would say I am the one in need of the training :)
I help our local Humane Society with a yearly wish list drive and pop top collection at the elementary school where I work. The kids really get involved, and I enjoy doing it.


BUT . . . when disasters (such as Katrina) hit, I dig a little deeper.

 After seeing and hearing more than I needed to about the Michael Vick story and the disturbing puppy mil stories, I became outraged and extremely upset. I know this is going on all over the world, but I often think, "I am one person.  How can I possibly make a difference?"

The more I hear, the more I feel I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!!  The animals are innocent!  It is the PEOPLE who raise, abuse, and kill them! The PEOPLE need to be punished!  I am in contact with the United States Humane Society, as they prosecute offenders and protect animals in need. Not all of them can be saved, but, I feel I can make a difference!" You can too! We all have the potential.

So, I'm combining a fundraiser for the Humane Society with my passion for Stampin' Up!  This needs to be a BIG ONE!!  PLEASE spread the news and share my site with EVERYONE you know.  Once we've reached the goal of $1,000, I will continue this fundraising effort until we reached $5,000- enough to prosectue a serious animal abuser.

 An email from the United States Humane Society 1-14-08

Dear Teri—I received your mailing and your very kind donation. Thanks so much for all you’re doing to help animals. My sister and sister in law are both heavily into making cards and stamping, so I know how much time and creativity it takes! If you’d like to send checks or anything else directly to me in the future, I’ll make sure it gets taken care of. (Kathy Bauch, HSUS, 700 Professional Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20879.) Best,
