Stray Cat Alliance Mission: Stray Cat Alliance educates and empowers the community to advocate for every cat’s right to be safe, healthy and valued. We are building a no kill nation, one stray at a time. Vision: Stray Cat Alliance envisions a time when all cats are cared for, all kittens and domesticated cats are in loving homes and there is a healthy, but declining sterilized feral cat population. The feral cat colonies that do remain are monitored, fed, and treated medically when needed by their caregivers. Find SCA on Facebook here.
The Pet Postcard Project is a grassroots arts-and-crafts project aimed at raising food for shelter pets and awareness about the plight of homeless animals. “Pet Postcards” for this project are homemade and handmade postcards featuring your own pets that you make and then snail mail into The Pet Postcard Project. Each card you send earns food for shelter dogs and cats.
So far, this project has received many thousands of funny, weird, sad, cute, and profound cards, all filled with love for a beloved pet. Please include a PHOTO of the animal on each card, or else we won’t know who’s “talking!” The words are not just captions, they are creative confessions, wishes, advice, and “you know you love your dog/cat when” ideas.
This site does NOT make money on this project. It’s all to raise food and awareness for shelter animals.
- Use your own pet on the cards.
- The words on the postcards are not just captions! They fall into 4 categories: CONFESSIONS, ADVICE, WISHES, and “YOU KNOW YOU LOVE YOUR DOG/CAT WHEN . . . ” The words should be funny, heartwarming, instructive, or profound.
- RANDOM CAPTIONS ARE INELIGIBLE.
- Postcards must be unique — do not send multiples of the same card or store bought cards.
- Postcards can be made by hand (craftsy) or on the computer. They must be snail mailed.
- The Pet Postcard Project tutorial is here.
