A Place to Bark...and Meow is an animal rescue conceived and run by Bernie Berlin who is also an artist in her own right. The expense of running this type of sanctuary is payed for by her own money and donations she receives from others who support her efforts. Right now she is part of a fund raising event that is granting to the winner $50,000 and to reach first place, she must have the most donators over other charities. She is currently in 2nd place and others are fast approaching her standing. The donation required is only $10.00 and multiple donations from the same person do not count (a mistake I made but I'm sure the extra money will go to Bernie). The contest ends in 3 days and I hope you can find it in your heart to give to a worthy cause. A Place to Bark link is located in my sidebar on the right.
