Keep Calm and Go Shopping

It's time for the Lucky Pup Dog Rescue Holiday Bazaar out in sunny  San Diego!

Lucky Pup is San Diego's first Adoption Center for "Shelter Dogs" at UC Marketplace.  3358 Governor Drive in the cottage next to Sprouts Grocery Store.

An all volunteer group, they have been rescuing small and medium sized dogs from the highest kill shelters since 2011 and rely on fundraisers such as this, and donations to their 501c3 non profit dog rescue to continue the rescue/adoption process.

The Book of Barkley is happy to support the bazaar each year with books and info on it for our fur-ends. Their founders and volunteers are the nicest people.  With my late brother, a part of that San Diego Navy community -  as a submariner for many years- we want to give a little back to that area.

This holiday season you too can help, while getting some wonderful things to give as Christmas gifts.

Founders Christine and her husband Steve.

There are four easy ways to help.

1.  Visit the Bazaar at the address above on this Saturday December 12.  from noon to 4 PM. They will have blankets, beautiful sterling silver jewelry, dog stuff, tumblers, cards, books and more!

2.  When doing any holiday shopping online  -  type www.AdoptAShelter.com in your browser, then go to the list of shelters to select  select Lucky Pup in San Diego (if you adjust the search page to list 150 shelters per page, they are on page six.)  Then simply select from dozens of retailers (including Amazon)  then shop.  It's free for you, you don't have to provide any personal information, and they will receive a donation of a percentage of your purchase through the retailer

I tried it and it was easy.

You can also help by adopting a rescue and saving a life or becoming a sustaining member of the Lucky Pup family with a monthly donation as low as $10 or make a one time donation to help the animals this holiday Season at:

Thanks for caring in this wonderful season of love and giving.
