My article about volunteering at the animal shelter in Koh Samui, Thailand last year was published on Thursday, and on Wednesday, an interview I did for expatsblog.com was featured on their site. You can check out both here:
In addition, I'm going to be writing even more now for Dogster & Catster as they've asked me to cover stories for their "Dogster Heroes" section of the site. I get to contact animal associations (shelters, fosters, rescue groups, etc.) as well as individuals who are making a positive difference in the lives of animals in order to profile them for Dogster. These articles will help bring awareness and visibility to various animal causes -- America and elsewhere -- which in turn can bring in more donations and volunteers for them (and deserved recognition for those who have gone out of their way to save (a) dog(s) or cat(s)).
Needless to say, I'm super excited and can't wait to get interviewing and writing!
I've got a few animal associations in mind already, but I'd love to hear from any of you who know of a great group of people or an individual that I could write about. It can be a local hero who performed a selfless act to save a dog or cat, or a shelter like the one I visited in Koh Samui that is doing everything they can to improve the lives of sick, injured or abandoned bébés. I'm open to all suggestions, so please do not hesitate to leave me a comment on this post, or email me at dq_grrl [at] hotmail [dot] com. (And, as I mentioned above, the people/associations can be from any country as long as I can contact them in English!)
Thanks in advance & happy weekend to all!
