It's been a while since I've updated everyone on Lindsay and Heather of Support Supernatural and their fundraising efforts for A Dog's Life Rescue in Los Angeles.  Even though the first campaign ended in September, they've continued since then raise money as the needs for this animal rescue have grown urgent.  Support Supernatural has recently started auctioning off new items on ebay with 100% of the proceeds going to A Dog's Life.

The first auction, an autographed copy of a Supernatural Conzine, went live yesterday and can be found here.  The other item up for auction is a Misha Collins autographed painting.  Seven other auctions are coming, so watch for that. 

Below is the message sent out by Lindsay and Heather regarding the auctions:  

It's official! The holidays are here! Giving back is what we enjoy most and this is the best time of year to do so. Wink

To create a boost in donations for A Dog's Life Rescue at a critical time for the charity, we have NINE eBay auctions coming your way, starting tomorrow! We'll launch one item per day and each auction will last 48 hours. We have a variety of autographed items from folks like Jensen, Jared, Misha, Chad, Traci and more! There are so many people to thank for helping us get these items together that we will thank them individually in each auction listing.

Each day, we'll post the new auction link on our home page, on MySpace, on Facebook and on Twitter (Don't worry - we will not e-mail you every day).

We know not everyone will be capable and/or interested in bidding, but if you could help share the auction links with your Supernatural friends, we think the publicity will go a long way. Conversation about Supernatural is great for the show anytime (but especially during this horrendously long hiatus) and publicity for the auctions will only help make more money for the charity.

In closing, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a wonderful year in donations for A Dog's Life Rescue and for your wonderful, unending promotion of the best program on television.

And thank you in advance for a wonderful finale to our 2009 fundraising! (Don't worry, our support of A Dog's Life will continue in 2010.)

Lindsay & Heather

Thank you Lindsay and Heather for all your efforts!  This rescue has really done so much for abandoned animals and I'm thrilled to see your passion for the animals has you both continuing to raise funds. 

You remember the animals, right people?  Check out the auctions for their sakes.  Just in case anyone has forgotten what one looks like, it's time for cute puppy pictures:

Here comes my ‘I second this!’ – I’ve heard people say ‘Oh, I care more about people, if I’m going to help, it’s not animals’, a point that has to be respected – if those people try to help others, it’s highly appreciated. There are too many in urgent need of help every minute of the day.

However – animals, unfortunately, are not able to speak up and give speeches about their situation. They need our support to help them get medical treatment, if necessary, get out of laboratories, or merely to keep their species alive (I don’t have the exact numbers, but every day we lose several species to extinction).

Anyone who’s ever had a dog, a cat, whatever friend, knows how much joy and support such an animal can give. I used to have a dog when I was a kid, and I’d love to have one now, but with my working hours it would be just cruel… But I often take my neighbour’s Rottweiler when I go for my runs, and it’s almost as if he’s mine, we just love each other. And he’s so big, it’s more a horse than a dog. Ah, yes, some animals offer protection, too.

So – let’s keep protecting them. Check out the auctions, folks.
Thanks so much, God bless you, Jas

What, no cat pictures? I'd like to speak to the manager!

When it comes to people vs. animals, I tend to side with Barry Cook, animals are much nicer (except for you all, bien sûr.) We give a little to the local animal shelter and have taken a couple of stray cats in. I know this stuff will be sold with no problem, but I always wish we could give more.

The people could be helped more, but no way I'm opening up any political cans of worms here. 8-)

(lest I be labeled one with poor reading comprehension, I know the auction is for dogs, I just like cats)

Randal, you will be so happy to know that "A Dog's Life Rescue" also helps cats! They feed a feral cat colony daily and have even had to do a very special rescue after someone tried to poison the cats by putting out rat poison...twice!

So rest assured that they help more than just the pooches.

Alice, thanks again for posting this info for us!

Lindsay, SupportSupernat

Sounds like a great organization & I'm glad to see the guys supporting them. These days especially, our local humane groups need the help. Unfortunately, people are abandoning even more animals & the shelters are overwhelmed. All of my charity budget goes to animal or children's groups. Dawn

I'm another crazy cat lady in the making :mrgreen:, but all of God's creatures deserve a chance. I think it's really great that there are people out there willing to harness the fandom's enthusiasm and put it to such a use. Keep up the great work you guys...I'll be barking about it down the grapevine haha
# Randal 2009-12-03 07:40
Rat poison? That's the kind of stuff that makes me wish there was a hell.

Best of luck to you guys, and may Bill Gates be the purchaser of at least one of the items!

We got in touch with the local cat protection outfit to adopt a kitten and the sneaky sods e-mailed a photo of said kitten ... Along with all her sisters and her mum, all asleep in a big furry pile ... Guess how that turned out?

Randal, if there's any justice they all come back as rats ...

I am all for rescuing animals and doing what I can to help associations that do that.

I went a bit bigger than most when I rescued my pet. He currently weighs in around 1100 lbs. Grin. I have a Standardbred who came to me through a local group who was taking horses from the track and retraining them for second careers. (although, my horse was saved more than some - if this group hadn't take him he would have gone for meat). He is awesome and we have been together for over 8 years now.

A Dog's Life is doing wonderful job. I am happy to support them when I can.
