This is a really fun event to which you can bring your dog.

Every year people have a great time and raise money for all of the rescues in attendance.

Rescues don't bring animals but hand crafted items to sell. A great place for holiday shopping!

Misha May has a craft table as well as offering Animal Communication sessions. Pleae come by and see us!

Animal communicators will be offering sessions both days at $1.00 per minute. Thanks to Melinda Gillette who will be there Saturday 10:30-3.

Handcrafted items will be sold to benefit Misha May. Items will include paintings, jewelry, woodworking, and so much more.

Deb's Custom Critters will be donating a percentage of their sales at this event to benefit Misha May. Please support her booth.

Especially for Broncos fans:

We tried to choose a date when there wasn't a game but it wasn't possible.

May we make a suggestion?

Please come to the event at noon. Eat lunch with us at 12:30. See the dancing dogs at 1:00. Then run over to the game that begins at 2:00.

We promise to draw some door prizes before you leave in the hopes that a Bronco fan wins something and then we promise to cheer on the Broncos to vistory!

If you still can't come, please buy tickets for the Grand Prize Basket. You don't have to be present to win!

Misha, The Misha May Foundation's namesake, died on November 14th, 2000. This event is to remember her and to celebrate her legacy of saving dogs at risk. Misha was on her way to be relinquished at a shelter when she was rescued. She found her way to Lorraine and that was the beginning of this story.

Westword, Best Colorado Deals, Natural Awakenings, Mile High Dog and Locate Fine Art each helped promote our 10th Anniversary Moment for Mutts event far and wide. Please support them!

Candice of sent this letter to her friends and clients. Several have already made donations to Misha May:


Misha May is one of my favorite non-profits helping dogs. They foster dogs. They don't have a facility. They help the dogs with issues so they CAN be adopted. They save the dogs no one wants. It started out as a grass-roots effort by one woman and has grown amazingly. They also help people be better at the art of living with their own dogs as well as with other dogs.

Currently I'm taking a Reiki class for animals through this organization. I've always felt helpless around sick, geriatric, traumatized, or confused dogs and even healthy dogs that just aren't happy. Hopefully I won't feel that way after this class.

There is a fundraiser on Nov 14 at the Mercury Cafe. I've attached the flyer. The tickets are only $35 and its such a worthwhile endeavor to support. I will be there with a sponsor's table so I hope you'll buy a ticket and come or at least buy a ticket to help these people continue to do what they do.

Thanks a million
