Sexy Hooter's girls raise money for Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary Spay/Neuter
Animal rescue groups are getting creative when it comes to fundraising in this challenging economic climate. Costs are rising as non-profit shelters take-in more cats and dogs because people cannot afford to keep them. And at the same time, donations are down dramatically due to unemployment and home foreclosures.
In order to bring in the necessary money to continue their work, some animal welfare organizations are resorting to – SEX.
Hooters for Neuters
At a recent Pet Expo in Las Vegas, NV the Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary recruited the help from the animal loving Hooter’s girls to bring in fundraising dollars. The young women drew a lot of attention to the organization’s booth during the two day event, which raised money for a low-cost, high volume spay/neuter program. Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary spay/neuters 8,000 cats and dogs every year.
Burlesque Dancers help Pit bulls
In Savannah, GA Deirdre Franklin – her stage name is Little Darling – has created a calendar with her fellow burlesque dancers to raise money for Pitbull dogs. Her “Pinups for Pitbulls” calendar raised more than $10,000 to support rescued Pitbull terriers. The calendar featured the beautiful dancers with their own dogs and a heartwarming story about their beloved pets. Franklin’s Pitbull dog, Carla Lou was left for dead in a Texas basement. Franklin calls her, “An angel.”
The hunky firemen of West Hollywood, CA Fire Station #8 have a new steamy and sexy calendar to raise money for orphaned pets. The firemen posed with their dogs to help Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). The organization rescues homeless pets from public animal shelters when they are put on the euthanasia list.
