The Tiniest Tiger Asks You to Be The Change for Animals

Blog the Change

“If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men”

Francis of Assisi

Today is Be the Change for Animals day!  One day, once a quarter, Be the Change for Animals is asking bloggers to make a special post to talk about what they are passionate about and how they are trying to make a difference in the lives of animals.

Friends of The Tiniest Tiger know that we like to laugh, learn and share in our community. But we also unite our small paws to make a difference. We are approaching the one year anniversary of our The Tiniest Tiger Facebook page and our streak has grown to over 18,000!

Over the past year, The Tiniest Tiger’s Conservation Cub Club has  united their paws to help many of our cousins in need. Our Friend Anna Marie called out to her Friends at The Tiniest Tiger when her beloved Kaydee was suffering from complications after being neutered.  Kaydee’s medical expenses were mounting and Anna Marie was facing a decision about her baby based not on what could be done for him, but for what she could afford.   After exhausting her own resources  something told her to turn to The Tiniest Tiger for help.

Anna Marie’s heart felt plea launched our first united front to help save one of our cousins in need.  The outpouring of support was overwhelming  and Kaydee’s bill was paid in full. Sadly, Kaydee did not survive. He passed away in Anna Marie’s arms knowing that he was loved and his life mattered.   And mattered, indeed. 

Our motto Small Paws United to Make a Big Difference began with Anna Marie and Kaydee. Over the year TTT’s Conservation Cub Club has united to help out many of our Cat Cousins, both big and small.  After winning the Bissell MVP Pet Photo Contest, we were able to donate $10,000 to PurrEver Ranch Sanctuary. We supported, Meow for Mango, Nosetaps for Nancy, Big Cat Rescue and others.  In our 1st year we have been able to donate $17,000 to Cats in need, both big and small.

The quote at the beginning of this post is by Francis of Assisi (Giovanni Francesco Bernardone, 1181-1226)  known as the patron saint of animals and the environment. 

I have his icon hanging in my office to remind me to try to do my best  for all of earth’s creatures both big and small.

Friends of The Tiniest Tiger just this week posted that there was a no-kill shelter in North Carolina in desperate need to stay in operation.  We had just ended our Nosetaps for Nancy ChipIn and were considering waiting a while before posting our next shelter.

But when I saw the name of the North Carolina no kill shelter was  St. Francis Animal Rescue Center and that today was July 15 ” Blog the Change for Animals” day, I realized that there is no time like the present and there is no time to waste when trying to make a difference in the lives of our animals.

Thank you  Blog the Change for Animals and BlogPaws for all that you do.
