Name Your 'PURRICE' Weekend...

Kelly at the Austin Humane Society sent us a heads up about a lot of wonderful kitties that are up for adoption. This weekend it's a Name Your 'PURRICE' Weekend to help a kitty get a great new loving home.

"Name Your Purrice" cat adoption event this weekendSaturday (4/27) & Sunday (4/28) ). ATX city animal shelter (AAC) is way overloaded with cats, so the Austin Humane Society have stepped in to help. They have brought in 44 of their cats to their shelter in the past 24 hours. Every adoption this weekend will help them both out greatly, so the ATX Humane Society is allowing adopters to name their own price for cats. All the same rules still apply. Adopters must fill out an application, go through all the same questions, and meet with an adoption counselor.
Look at those eyes, how can you say NO to Shadow!

Important Information In The Wake of The Boston Marathon Bombings

Here are four important tips and websites in the wake of what happened yesterday at the Boston Marathon.



1.  The Boston Police Department and FBI have asked for ANY photos, videos, or information from yesterday.  They're stressing that NOTHING is irrelevant.  You can reach the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or email them at  There's also a Boston Crime Tips Hotline at 800-494-8477.



2.  The Boston Mayor's hotline if you're looking for a loved one is 617-635-4500.

(And both the Red Cross and Google have set up websites to help connect people with their friends and family in Boston.)



3.  It's best to text people in Boston rather than call them.  The cell towers there are overloaded, and it helps to keep them open for emergencies. 



4.  The Red Cross says they have enough blood AND enough money to handle the crisis.  Instead of donating blood now, wait for a few weeks or months.  You can still donate money, but make sure you go to the source and watch out for scams.
