Animal Aid shelter where I adopted Lucky & Phoebe are having a competition to choose the animals that will feature in their 2013 calendar. These are the photos I chose to enter out of the hundreds I've taken of the girls since they came to live with me last August. I think their personalities come through in these pictures. Phoebe is very much at home, relaxed & feeling entitled to every comfort. Lucky is a little more cautious but she enjoys some company & a comfortable spot to soak up the sun.
If you would like to vote for the girls, you can do this here. You'll need to set up an account & make a donation (via PayPal) of at least $5 to vote. Every dollar equals a vote so your $5 donation gives you 5 votes. The 13 animals with the most votes will be featured in next year's calendar. The animal with the most votes will be on the cover.
Animal Aid receives no government funding so all their work is funded by volunteers & donations. It's a very worthwhile cause as there are so many unwanted animals abandoned or relinquished every year & Animal Aid do their best to care for these animals & find them new homes. You can read more about their work on the website here.
I hope you'll consider voting for the girls & supporting Animal Aid at the same time.
