Skeeter also has a chance to win some prizes.
Here are her comments about that ...
"But... seriously... I don't want to win anything. I am happy in our truck and really would not like having to be clean and polite in a limo. I HATE even the thought of "doggy spa". I have a sneaky suspicion there is water, soap and brushing involved with that. As for the ad campaign? I really do not take direction very well. I'd be spending most of my time at the craft service table TOTALLY ignoring the director. I want lots and lots of dollars for the DOG GUIDES so I really want to come in second... :O)"

Please share this and help a good cause!

Breaking News ..

... well -- actually-- from last September.

The Spanky Project held a sterilization campaña for pets in San Jose de las Lajas.
This event included veterinary students from the Agrarian University which is located in the town.

Each pet was escorted through the entire process by a student.
Forty students spent the day with us.
Much was learned.

This was also a historical event.

Thanks Wally!

We, here at the Spanky Project, are grateful for the support we get from people that have been touched by Cuba and her animals.

Wally Moran sailing writer, charter skipper and soon to be movie maker, has contacted us about wanting to help the dogs of Cuba.
He has re-homed a dog from Varadero so he definitely has a connection.
That story I will leave to him.

Wally has set up a fundraising page on Indigogo titled
"Saving Cuba's Dogs".
He has some interesting awards for anyone who donates to help out, and the minimum donation is only $2. For less than the price of a cup of coffee, you can help us to help Cuba's dogs.

Thanks Wally from the Spanky Project.
Oh, and don't forget to share this fundraiser on your own Facebook page or Twitter.

This fundraiser begins August 2nd and runs for 45 days.

PayPal feels this campaign violates OFAC Regulations.

You can still help Cuba's dogs.
In Canada cheques can be sent to...
