Animals and humans

A human (well, me) and a pussycat
I am looking for a new charity for next year. For what you ask? Where have you been? For Mice for Mama* of course! The first two choices have been made: out of animal, vegetable or mineral you chose animal. And then the majority of you picked option C: animals and humans. So, that's what it's going to be! 

There are however so many charities out there, that I find it hard to find one, let alone pick! There is a horse riding for the disabled charity in the UK, pets for vets in the USA, dogs for the blind in Norway (and a lot of other countries in the world). But... what is your suggestion? 

Yamini sponsored this beauty called Isaac to be a fully fledged guide dog
So, here's what I am asking of you this time: the name and location of a charity (preferably one you know personally and trust) that deals with animals and humans. It can be anywhere in the world, local, national or international. 

*Mice for Mama: where you can find a mouse to share your bed/travels/life. Or somebody else's for that matter! Half of the price of the sold mice goes to the chosen charity. This year's charity is a Dutch charity called the Stomach Liver and Bowel Foundation. Very close to my parents' hearts (and mine), since my mother (hence Mice for Mama) suffered from bowel cancer earlier this year. Fortunately she has been given the all clear a few months ago. 

Detail of one of the special Christmas mice
If you want to order a mouse, here are a few pointers: the last batch will come out on December 1st. The batch will include two special Christmas mice. If you want the mouse/mice to arrive before Christmas, it would be wise to order before December 5th. Just so you know!


  1. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mara you love of felines has given you a lifetime of peace and calm...love your red outfit.
    YaYa's sponsoring of handsome Isaac is going to make someone's life purrfect
    Hugs madi your bff

  2. Hari Om
    getting closer... now as Madi points out, your love of felines has seen you through life, so I wonder if a cat rescue might be an option; the the human element would be more difficult connection in that case... OH WAIT A MINUTE.... how about Scruffy?! I sponsor Poppy through this charity and they are to be trusted. What is more, you are actually helping the humans of the pet, so that they don't have to be separated! That's my ten cents worth. YAM xx

  3. We can't wait to hear who you pick!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy and Stanley

  4. For the moment my mind is empty, but there are so many things for animals. I'll think !!


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
