I adore glitter and I adore animals, so of course I have to have it (eventually . . . .when is lent over again?) The necklace is by one of my favorite jewelry websites, Fantasyjewelrybox.com. It is unclear if the proceeds from this necklace support the Lange Foundation, but either way it is a symbol for animal and dog lovers alike.
Here are the details from the website:
"According to The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), every year in the United States alone, over 4 million pets are taken to animal shelters, simply because theydrastically outnumber the homes available to them. They are alone, they are voiceless, and most of them are senselessly euthanized. As their lives silently end, several hundred thousand more pets are being borninside cruel puppy mills then sold to pet stores for profit. Many more are being born simply due to people never taking their pets to getspayed or neutered.
The Lange Foundation is dedicated to saving impounded companion animals, and preparing themfor a journey to a new, safe, loving world. The dogs and cats rescued come to them in all shapes, colors, sizes and ages. Some are victims of abuse or neglect, some are starving strays and others are simply lostor given up by their past "owners". Many people who take their pets to the Shelter mistakenly believe that good homes will be found for them.In reality, most animals that arrive into shelters are euthanized within 5-7 days due to lack of space. Unlike most shelters and animalpounds, The Lange Foundationis a no kill shelter which means that once an animal is rescued and brought into their shelter, that lucky animal will be cared for until adopted into their forever loving home.
The staff at FantasyJewelry Box is proud to support such a worthy cause and we want to help spread the message to all animal lovers out there! If you would like to visit The Lange Foundation online to personally donate your money or time, please visit their website at www.LangeFoundation.com.
