We’re excited to be a part of Emancipet’s Sit Stay Day fundraiser again this year and we want to let you all know a little bit about it. Emancipet is a local Austin organization that focuses on making spaying, neutering, and preventative vet care affordable. Here is how they describe themselves:
“We believe that every pet needs and deserves high-quality preventive veterinary care to keep them healthy and happy for their entire lives. But we know that sometimes spay/neuter procedures and basic care like vaccinations and flea and heartworm prevention are financially out of reach and inaccessible in some communities. We’re here to change that. We believe that making spay/neuter services and preventive veterinary care more affordable and accessible improves the lives of animals and the people who love them. We also believe it is the single most important strategy to end the unnecessary euthanasia of homeless pets in the United States.”
We are happy to be sponsoring Emancipet’s Sit Stay Day fundraiser this month. The idea is that when people donate to the cause, they get a kit full of products from sponsors, like us, that add up to be the perfect night in. Great for any occasion, these kits are an excellent way to Sit and Stay at home while still getting special perks for donating. Here’s a little more about the program from the Emancipet website:
“Ready, set, stay! Emancipet invites you to join us in celebrating our 4th Annual Sit Stay Day, an innovative fundraising concept that supports our mission to make spay/neuter and preventive veterinary care services affordable and accessible to all pet owners.
Sit Stay Day gives busy Austin philanthropists a chance to give to Emancipet while enjoying a day dedicated to doing exactly what they want, when they want, with the people – and pets! – they love. On Thursday, February 13, 2014, participants will receive a unique Sit Stay Day “kit,” chock full of an exciting assortment of local gourmet goodies delivered directly to their home or office.
Don’t forget – Sit Stay Day kits are perfect for Valentine’s Day! Or, order two and enjoy a “girls night in” with your closest friends. Sit Stay Day kits also make great gifts for friends, family members, co-workers and clients.
Here are just a few of the yummy treats that will be this year’s kits:
