LONGORIA HOME RUNS WILL AGAIN AID ANIMAL SHELTER
ST. PETERSBURG, FL—For the second consecutive season, every home run hit by Rays All-Star third baseman Evan Longoria will benefit the Pet Pal Animal Shelter, a no-kill, nonprofit shelter in St. Petersburg. For every home run he hits during the 2013 season, Longoria will join Bright House Sports Network, the Rays and Ducky’s Sports Lounge to each donate $100 to the shelter.
Longoria and his girlfriend, Jaime Edmondson, have two rescue dogs, Jango, an eight-year-old bull terrier and Tatum, a four-year-old Boerboel Mastiff.
“We were so thrilled last year to have been chosen by Evan and Jaime,” said Scott Daly, Executive Director of Pet Pal Animal Shelter. “We look forward to saving even more lives this year with the help of this magnificent Fundraiser.”
“Jaime and I are thankful to be a in a position that allows us to continue to support the great work being done by Pet Pal,” Longoria said. “We’re also grateful to Bright House Sports Network and the Rays for their continued support. Hopefully we can increase this year’s donation.”
Despite missing more than half of last season with a partially torn left hamstring, Longoria hit 17 home runs leading to a $6,000 donation to Pet Pal.
Pet Pal Animal Shelter is a no-kill nonprofit organization committed to rescuing dogs and cats from animal shelters that may otherwise be euthanized due to time limitations, illness, injuries or lack of socialization and training. Pet Pal is also dedicated to educating the public about the pet overpopulation crisis, the importance of spaying/neutering and responsible pet ownership.
To donate or for additional information, visit petpalanimalshelter.com or call (727) 328-7738.
The Tampa Bay Rays have proudly represented Major League Baseball in the Tampa Bay region since 1998. The organization and its foundation are committed to building a strong community bond through meaningful interaction and charitable contributions.
Aah, springtime- the flowers are blooming, the air is crisp and young cats and dogs everywhere are finding love… which unfortunately, leads to QUITE a few unwanted animal pregnancies. We can’t blame our animals for what comes naturally to them but we must be responsible for their actions. Spaying and neutering your pets will NOT make them fat and lazy and will NOT make them meek and shy. What it will do is reduce the over population of unwanted animals in Amercia, many of whom are euthanized. Even if your pet has a litter and you find homes for all of them, each of those pets takes a potential home away from other homeless pets waiting in a shelter. In addition to this, there are also significant health benefits for your pet.
Benefits of Spaying and Neutering
Prevents pregnancy and the complications arising from pregnancy and delivery
Eliminates the heat cycle in females
Prevents unwelcome males from trying to seek out your female pet in heat
Reduces the urge to roam. This makes it less likely that you will lose your pet, which in turn makes your pet less likely to contract a disease, get in a fight, get injured, or become a victim to cruelty, poison, or traffic.
Reduces or eliminates the possibility of disease in the reproductive system.
Reduces the distracting and destructive behavior associated with the male’s efforts to get out and find a mate
Eliminates testicular tumors and reduces prostate gland problems.
In cats, neutering may stop or reduce marking behavior (territorial spraying of urine).
Reduces the urge to fight.
There are many organizations, including Pet Pal’s Veterinary Clinic, that provide low cost spay/neutering services. You owe it to your animal.
So spay and neuter-it makes them even cuter!
