A unique and fun place for pets & their people-Closing their doors

A very unique place, where you can take your pets,  your laptop, relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Reluctantly, Animals by Nature/Tree of Life Club will close their doors by end of September. Three years of building her dream, Marne, owner of ABN/Tree of Life Club, has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and now must close her doors to brave the fight too many women in this country and around the world face each day.

Sadly, Breast Cancer has become an everyday word. We hear it on tv, the radio and each of knows at least one person in their lives that have been diagnosed with this life threatening disease or worse, lost their life to Breast Cancer. Please support your local chapter, walk, raise funds, raise awareness. Breast Cancer doesn’t just affect those now having to switch gears in mid stream to fight for their lives, it affects each and every one of us!

If you haven’t stopped by Animals by Nature/Tree of Life Club, I hope you’ll take the time in the next 6 weeks to do so. Marne still has plenty of fun things to do on her calendar of events. You and your fur-babies will love the shopping! It’s truly unique :e)

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at PawPrint Essentials

Just back from Pawprint Essentials official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for their new location. Cheryl (owner) and Mya (Cheryl’s tiny little companion with a great big heart) are terrific! I just bought the best little treats for my Scoob, who is now thirteen and needs soft treats. Needless to say he loves them, plus they are all natural which I love! I’m sure I’ll be back for more before the end of the week. :e)

New Name & Design

logo for emailingMany of you know me as Psychic to the Pets and as the name served me well, it also implied I only communicate with dogs and cats but actually, I am able to communicate with all animals, being the bridge between Humans and Animals.

My “Testimonials” page has been relocated to this blog site and I’m still in the process of moving all of them over. I hope you’ll visit often to see the heartwarming testimonials my clients have so beautifully written for me.  Please send your testimonials to lori@animalchit-chat.com I would be honored to post them.

“In Memory Of…” is a new page dedicated to the animals now living on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge-Remembered by the people who loved them ~ unconditionally!  If you had a chance to say just one thing to your special animal companion, what would it be? Now you can. Just email lori@animalchit-chat.com and include your name, your animal’s name and one, no more than two sentences you would like  your special friend to hear.

Check out my new site: www.animalchit-chat.com for more information about Animal Chit-Chat with Lori Michel, Animal Communicator. Whether you care for the largest of animals or the tiniest, a session with me will give you an insight into the amazing animal(s) you so lovingly care for.

ARF-ritis

Too many of our loved ones, human and furry, suffer from this crippling disease. We can make a difference one step at a time. Come join in the fun and bring your dog too! Pawprint Essentials has put together a team “Pawprint Pals” for the Arthritis/ARF-ritis walk on May 21, 2009.

Here’s how to sign up for the walk or – if you can’t make it to the walk but would like to donate – any thing you can give is meow-velous! (have to include the kitties too! ) Stop by my booth – I’d love to say hello and cheer you on!!

Volunteers

Volunteers are a vital part of any organization dependent upon public donations in order to achieve their mission. Volunteers are intelligent, passionate and giving individuals who take time out of their busy lives to work, for free, for the organization of their choosing. Thank goodness for volunteers!!

Several vendors in our animal welfare community decided to come together to honor our fabulous volunteers but we ask for your help once again to pull this off – if you know anyone who has made a difference in the lives of animals then please print off several nomination forms and start filling them out. There are so many fabulous volunteers in this community that I expect we will see truck loads of nomination forms rolling in any time now For the Love of Animals 2009 event. Not only will this be a night for volunteers, proceeds will  benefit several animal welfare organizations in our community. Please look for the June/July issue of Sarasota Pet for more information on this exciting event.
