Another successful Garage Sale
Sunday, August 23, 2009

Wow! That was a lot of work. However, we had A LOT of stellar volunteers to help and make it a fun day. Special thanks to: Madde (Ozzy's grandma) for her organizational and presentation talents, Chaz (Ozzy's dad) for providing the workers with lunch, Andy (our webmaster) for his super sales skills, and Stella, our newest volunteer extraordinare! Of course, a ton of gratitute goes to our fantastic board, Matt, Jenny, and Sheila, for their unwavering support. Lastly, thank yous go to Jules & Li Li for their unbridled excitement and Cooper & Dreyfus (both of the canine persuasion) for guarding the whole operation.

We raised a little over $400 in this garage sale. The proceeds will benefit animals that are dealing with a health crisis. To date, we have been able to help five dogs (about one a month), who are doing quite well, thanks to the loving care of their guardians.

I met an incredible woman named Kathleen at our garage sale (through Stella, who has known her for a while), who is quite linked in to the Whittier animal community. I think the Ozzy Foundation will be able to do some great things by collaborating with both Kathleen and Stella and their circle of people.

Although we will likely slow down a bit from now until the end of the year, we will take the time to celebrate an incredible 2009 and gear up for a productive 2010. If any of you out there have ideas about how we can make an even bigger impact in 2010, please contact us!

Charity Garage Sale - August 22, 2009
Saturday, August 8, 2009

Our last big hurrah for 2009 (unless we come up with some other wacky fundraising idea)!! Clean out your closets/garages! Our last charity garage sale was wildly successful and we are hoping that proceeds from this sale will get us through the year. Thus far in 2009, we have been able to assist five adorable pooches (photos of the two most recent coming...stay tuned!). Maybe we'll add a few felines to Ozzy's Family before the year's end!

Ozzy has been doing well. We had a little bit of a "road bump" last month when we were out of town for eight days and Ozzy was being rather difficult (to put it lightly) about letting the petsitter give him fluids. Thus, when we returned, Ozzman was not feeling very well and it took a good week of heavy fluids to get him back on track. I'm happy to report that he is back to his old mischievous self!
