A Kiva Loan Equals a $2 Donation to the SPCA

Every team member of Animal Lovers who makes a Kiva loan that is credited to our team, will cause me to donate $2 to the SPCA here in Canada.

What you need to do is make the loan and then e-mail me to tell me who you lent to. I will then verify it at the Animal Lovers Team Lender’s Page. It’s that simple.
We already have 4 participants and $8 in the SPCA can.

Offer expires Oct 31, 2008 - one donation made per qualified member and limited to the first 25 participants.
Lakota, Kota for short, was adopted at SAD SAC (Save a Dog, Save a Cat) just about a year ago. He was the last of the litter, and no one wanted him. We think its because of his mustache. We decided to foster him and within a day, we decided to keep him. He suffers from separation anxiety still to this day. When my wife leaves the room for an extended period of time, he calls out to her with a meow that sounds like "Mom!"

Chad was adopted from a video store just after the 2000 election here in the US. We named him Chad after the whole Hanging Chad debate.

He is the alpha of the house and lets it be known. Where ever you want to sit, he wants to sit. He loves having a lint roller rolled on his neck and face, and has a bad habit of finding adhesive tape to lick.

Tink has been with my wife longer than I have, over 12 years. She is petite, and a princess and she knows it.
She also has a loose lens in one of her eyes that makes it look like a marble. She is often picked on by the boys, be does her best to stand her ground.
Going outside is a treat for her, and when she is returned to the indoors, she yells to go back outside. Like I said, a princess.

My wife and I frequent many of the preserves and sanctuaries in the South Florida area, including some wetlands, the Panther Ridge Sanctuary, The Loggerhead Marinelife center, and the Busch wildlife center. You can see some photos on my blog or on my Flickr page listed below.

(Dharma and Deacon)
My husband and I have 2 dogs, Dharma and Deacon. They are both boxer mixes. Dharma looks like one, being a brindle female at 73 lbs. She is 5 years old. But Deacon looks for all the world like a black lab, tho his mother was a boxer. He is 80+ lbs at 10 months old.

My wife and I have 4 cats, 2 were adopted from "Save a dog, Save a Cat" because no one wanted them.

Mauli - is a femail who was probably abused, as she does not like human contact. Lakota (Kota for short) has half a black mustache and we think people did not want him because of it, their loss. He is my pal, and a riot!

We have 2 other, Chadwick bin Rotten (Chadwick), and Tink.

We both love animals, and I recently started a photography blog to augment my flickr account. and

Glad to be here, glad to help out.
