The capacity of the blogosphere to do good deeds is under appreciated and under utilized. Which makes the union between John Cole's Balloon Juice blog and Charlie's Angels, an animal rescue organization, so worthwhile.
John and his fellow bloggers have been tireless advocates of the rescue and adoption of homeless pets, especially those who might otherwise be euthanized. This has led to the creation of an annual Balloon Juice pet rescue calendar that is chockablock with owner-submitted photographs of their rescues and adoptions, mostly dogs and cats with the occasional wabbit.
The 2012 calendar is now available, and who cares if January is almost shot. The $22 bucks for each calendar goes to Charlie's Angels, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations directly to Charlie's Angels are fully tax deductible.
The rescue effort resonates deeply for the Dear Friend & Conscience and myself. We currently have five rescue critters, three cats and chocolate Labrador sister-brother Nicky and Jack, who if you click on and enlarge the top image can be seen near the upper right-hand corner frolicking in the snow behind our mountain retreat.
