Purrs 4 Peace- Week 15- Thank you

This week I would like to highlight “honorary cat” Mozart Dane who lives in Bethel, Ohio at the Harlequin Haven Great Dane Rescue (HHGDR), an all volunteer nonprofit. Mozart is an artist who paints with his paws to help support the rescue efforts. He is a spokesdog for awareness on the issues of puppy mills, pet store animal cruelty and homeless dogs. He was saved from a puppy mill by the his human mom, the Director of HHGDR and now gets lots of love. Mo is pictured in the photo on the right.

You can find Mo at @MozartDane on Twitter. HHGDR can be found at www.hhdane.org/mozart/

You can become a fan of the Rescue at www.facebook.com/HHGDR


Mo’s human “translator” on Facebook and Twitter is Janet Carleton who is also a sincere purrs 4 peace supporter. Janet is dedicated to animal rescue as evidenced not only by her work with HHGDR but also her own household of rescued fur babies which includes 3 Danes (including Nikki), a pug named Pong, and 5 cats (among them Annie, Jojo, Nomar and Jeter). Obviously, the “purrs” coming from their home are a varied, yet peaceful chorus.


The generous efforts of Mozart Dane and Janet Carleton to support purrs 4 peace are much appreciated. Purrs and thank you, my dear friends.


Thank you to every purrticipant. The following is my best list. Please forgive me if I have somehow missed your name (or worse... misspelled it). Let me know, however, since I want to thank you personally:

Dear Confucius, if we may be so bold, may we suggest that one week purrs go out to stop the selling of shelter animals for research?

Trusting animals that were once the companion of a family are sold to laboratories when it is widely, and well, known that in this day and age, testing of new drugs, etc. can be done in many other ways and with many other methods.

Thank you for featuring Mozart. He is a dog with a mission, just like you are a cat with a mission Confucius!
until next purr,
your pal,
Bruce:)
