There's a linky party coming . . .

Rescue me!

Anybody remember that song? Really? Ahhh, have a listen!

Now that I have gotten it stuck in your head (grin), I'll explain. You know that here at Lilypadquilting, we are especially interested in helping out rescue pups and kitties, and the shelters that work so hard to find them forever homes.

Recently, some of you participated in SewCalGal's Quilters Bee Giving charity fund raiser, and helped out a shelter that we chose because of their great work in placing rescue animals in good homes.

We appreciate all of you that helped out -- I don't believe that the final figures have been released, but over $1000 was donated to Greenville because of your generosity!

We decided that we should have a warmup and get everyone ready for the annual Pets on Quilts Show that is coming in August.

So, if you have rescued a dog or cat (or more than one!), be thinking about a blog post or Flickr picture that you can post about your furry friend.

And by the way -- "rescue" isn't only when you go to the shelter and choose a pet! Rescue is when a stray comes to your house and you take it in, or when a neighbor/relative/stranger can't keep a pet and you become the pet's new home . . . in those cases you've prevented an animal from going to the shelter, and that's a rescue, too!!

We are rounding up a sponsor, and will let you know when we are ready to start -- we'll have a linky party and let everyone hop around and visit, just like in the Pet Show.

And Snoodles, Padsworth and DragonDrop will be groovin to the tune . . . "come on and rescue me" . . .

Get those photos ready of your rescue furbabies!!

See ya soon,


  1. Hi Jacque! This sounds great! I have many stories to share about our rescued puppies and kittens. x Teje

  2. You really know how to get us going, "Let me tell you about my babies" LOL, I'm in.

  3. I''m in.... my 2 girls are rescues. I have spent most of my life "rescueing"

  4. Almost every single animal I have ever owned was a rescue. So I guess I am in too.

  5. That is sooooooooooooo awesome that you were able to donate that much money!!

  6. I have had three rescue dogs now, will have to link up with Gwen (Fletcher lost his battle with cancer last weekend) when it gets going.

  7. It was great to see the photo of my sweet babies. I guess my white dog -- Toby the one on the right wrapped in the blue quilt is a rescue as we took him in when my Mom could not care for him anymore. Gabby the one on the left was 13 1/2 when we had to put her down in February. Still makes me very sad. She was a wonderful dog and had a very good life even up to the end as we carried her as she could not walk any more. Have fun with the Linky Party! -- I will watch for it! :)

  8. We just adopted two kittens one from the VA Bch SPCA and the other from Suffolk, VA Animal Control. The male is all black and female has a black and white face - just like the two in the cage! Alice and Zack made our life better.

  9. That would be all of my cats but two!
