Tara loves Dallas' focus on fundraising.

Thank goodness the temperature in Dallas finally dipped below 110 degrees so I can finally sit by the pool to write my blog.

In tonight’s episode, you can see the relationship between creativity and charity fundraising events. So, before I talk about what happened in the show, let me give you a little background about my true passion -- Paws in the City animal rescue.

While our mission is to rescue dogs and cats from Dallas Animal Services before they are euthanized, we also take in strays and hardship cases. So in this tough economy we’re seeing a lot of dogs and cats being surrendered to Paws In The City, because their owners simply cannot afford the expense. Therefore, in these cases where the owners are not to blame, we place the pets in foster homes where they wait while our volunteers work tirelessly to find them a permanent home.

Let me brag a second about our volunteers. They are simply the best teammates that anyone could ever have. Not one person at Paws in the City receives any salary or payment. Instead, our charity is a 100% all-volunteer group, and each person gives her heart and soul to this incredible cause. Since there is strength in numbers, more volunteers equal more rescued animals. So to our volunteers I say thank you; and to those who want to volunteer, I say give us a call!
