Monthly Archives: December 2011
We want to wish everyone a holiday filled with peace and blessings for you and your furry families. Thank you for all of your support in 2011. We could not help the animals without all of you backing us!
Thank you to the Dlugo family for this awesome photo of their rescue kitties, Bernard and Malcome, who they adopted from B and O. These two photogenic boys are also the featured kitties for March in the 2012 B and O calendar.
B and O volunteers will be in Plain City Druggist, 480 South Jefferson Avenue (across from Der Dutchman) on Friday, December 23, from 4-6 pm wrapping gifts for a donation to Black and Orange Cat Foundation. They will also be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve from 10 am-noon. Bring your gifts in or buy some in the store and they will wrap them for you for a donation to help spay and neuter area kitties!
Our volunteers will provide the gift wrap (you can choose which you like best), the bows, and even a box if you need one. All you have to do is provide the gift! We have professional wrappers on site (namely, my mom, Roberta Timmons, who has been wrapping gifts for Santa for years). Please stop in and let us help make your season a bit easier by wrapping your presents.
This is especially good for those guys out there who always have their wives, girlfriends, mothers, or sisters take care of their gift wrapping. Get your sweetie’s present wrapped and make it look good (you can even pretend you did it yourself–we won’t tell–and neither will the kitties you help).
I know everyone has been waiting anxiously (I know I have), but the wait is finally over and the 2012 calendars are fresh from the printer (a big thank you to Tim Wilson and Melissa Noble from Wilson Printing and Graphics in London for putting this fabulous calendar together for us).
If one of your photos was selected to be in the calendar, you’ll be receiving a calendar in the mail to thank you for your support. If your photo wasn’t picked, don’t be upset. We had over 120 pictures to choose from and it was really, really hard to do! Everyone sent in professional looking pictures–even our printer said he couldn’t believe how super the photos were.
If you are ready to purchase calendars for the holiday gift giving season, you can do so in one of three ways. The calendars are $20 each.
1. Stop in Plain City Druggist, 480 South Jefferson Avenue (across from Der Dutchman Restaurant) any time during open hours and buy a calendar for $20 (no tax!). No shipping fees if you come in–just the cost of gas to drive to Plain City. The drugstore is open Monday to Friday, 9 am to 6 pm (closed from 1:15 to 2:15 pm for Lunch) and Saturdays, 9 am to noon.
2. Order on our web site under the special PayPal button that is set up about halfway down the home page. Shipping costs will be included. Shipping is $5 for 1-5 calendars; $10 for 6-10 calendars; slightly more as you order larger quantities. Look for the photo of the calendar on the home page and follow the instructions to order. You can use a credit card or a PayPal account to order this way.
3. Download a handy order form on our web site or do it right HERE. Send that back in to us with the costs of calendars and shipping and we’ll mail the calendars back to you. This is for those people who don’t want to use a credit card, but would prefer a check or money order.
We will also have calendars with us for sale on Sunday, December 11, at our Photos with Santa at the PetSmart on Sawmill Road (next to Target). We will be there from 11 am to 4 pm, so bring your pet for a photo and pick up a calendar.
Thank you to everyone who sent photos for the calendar and to all of you who are supporting us by purchasing them!
