BlogPaws 2011 Donates Over $12,500 to Five Rescue and Shelter Groups!


CheeseCake BlogPaws in not just about the cheesecake!

After 3 days of learning and fun, we got to the best part of BlogPaws conferences and handed out checks for $2,500 each to Rescue Ink, Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, Animal Rescue of Merrimack Valley, Mutts Matter, and Northwest International Pet Rescue. And there were additional donations of cash and swag, pushing the total higher. (Details to follow after we make it home!) Thank you, again, attendees and sponsors!

    Had the time of my life at BlogPaws and am beyond grateful to have attended, even if it was an abbreviated stay.

    Absolutely Fabulous! The love and giving that is palpable before, during and after the conference is so gratifying, on so many levels. Great job!

    Kudos to all who had a paw in producing BLOGPAWS2011. It was terrific!
    The workshops/breakout sessions, keynotes, the animal attendees, and especially meeting everyone.
    I love my Flat Pet, thanks Bev.
    To the BlogPaws, executive team, Catherine, Yvonne, and Tom …serious congratulations, or is that concatulations? Woof, Paw Up
    I’m safely back at home in Los Angeles, but strangely feel the need to rest.
    Mother Nature played some tricks, but could not dampen the enthusiasm and value of the BLOGPAWS 2011 Conference in Tysons Corner, Vienna, VA…Will be blogging about it in a series of posts coming soon.

    We <3 everyone who came, everyone who wanted to come and everyone who plans on coming next year. We <3 our fantastic sponsors, our speakers, and the great DBD team who handled so much of the logistics.
    Everyone played a BIG part - including all the pets! Where else can you go to a conference and bring your best friend - all furry, feathery, or finny? Only at BlogPaws.

    Nice job and thanks to all the BlogPaws organizers. I was a BlogPaws newbie this year, and could tell a lot of work went into the event. Seeing your generous donations to animal welfare groups makes it even sweeter!! Thank you!
