Animal Advocates Made a Huge Impact for Pets at South by Southwest! Launches SXSPets Campaign for Ten Animal Rescue Groups:

streetcatEach year, the film, music, and interactive festival South by Southwest seems to get bigger and better. And 2015 was no different! In fact, for animal lovers it may have been the best year yet. Grumpy Cat, Lil’ Bub, Tuna the Chiweenie (of Tuna Melts my Heart fame), and even Morris the Cat (remember him?) showed up in Austin, Texas, last week.

But our favorite activity of the week was one that benefits animals – ten animal rescue groups, in fact. Crowdfunding website teamed up with the groups to raise funds for critically needed projects for local animals, under the campaign name SXSPets.

The rescue groups are raising money for projects as kennel upgrades for special needs dogs, build-out of a new facility for rescues, purchase of a trailer for adoption events, and replacement of decades-old washers and dryers.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
