People love their pets and their pets are part of their family. Maybe their only family. Hard economic times put people in difficult situations when they are faced with the choice of not being able to feed their pets or giving them up. Lynn Gitter is graciously donating a major part of her body of artwork in order to raise funds for Friends of Snuffy, a charitable organization which helps to keep pets in their homes by helping provide pet food to those who otherwise could not continue to afford to feed their pets. The purchaser gets a tax deductible receipt for the preset percentage that goes to Friends of Snuffy, and gets to go home with a beautiful piece of art. There are paintings of various sizes, sculptures, and necklaces.
The event is free and open to the public. At this gallery exhibition opening event, there will be art, music, refreshments, and other entertainment.
Many thanks to Lynn Gitter, Alexander Turnquist, and our other participating artists, John Eric Byers, Ric Dragon, Zoya Geacintov, Kira Greene, Pat Horner, Jeff Leonard, Sally Rothchild, Anique Taylor as well as all contributors and volunteers for the event.
(Friends of Snuffy, Inc. is a New York State 501c3 charitable organization and is an all volunteer group.)

MACY’S SPONSORS BENEFIT FOR TAILS OF HOPE FOUNDATION
Gidget, the scene-stealing New Yorkie who played Baby, Samantha’s dog in this summer’s Sex and the City movie, will appear at Macy’s in Palisades Center Mall on Saturday, September 20th. Her visit will be part of a benefit shopping day for Tails of Hope Foundation, where she serves as the “Dog of Hope.”
In honor of Gidget’s visit, donations from 20% discount tickets for that day will be donated to Tails of Hope’s comparative medicine campaign and Sponsor-a-PetSM program. The foundation’s search for cures for veterinary disease and oncology often applies to cures for human disease and oncology—for the good of all.
Besides being an actress, Gidget herself is a melanoma survivor. She will be appearing in a fashion show at 2:30 p.m. at Macy’s on Saturday, September 20th, and to meet and greet dog fans and supporters of comparative medicine immediately afterwards. Tails of Hope will have a crafts table at Macy’s from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., with pet-themed tote bags for kids to decorate and dog treats donated by DOGSWELL®.
Comparative medicine uses knowledge gained from the treatment of cancer in companion animals and people to help advance medicine for the good of both species. “Tails of Hope is a collaborative, pioneering effort among general and specialty veterinarians, experts in human medicine, and the public, each of whose roles is critical to making progress in combating dreaded diseases in both pets and people,” says Tails of Hope’s founding veterinarian Dr. Michele Steffey. “We invite you to join us in our efforts, so that together we can bring hope to companion animals and people suffering from these life-threatening diseases and to the families who love them.”
As a cancer survivor, Gidget is featured in a new campaign, called “Gidget for Good™” for Tails of Hope, created by Words and Pictures, an advertising agency in Park Ridge, NJ. “We are very excited to play a role in a campaign that will benefit the well-being of pets as well as people,” according to Rhonda Smith, Partner and Creative Director of Words and Pictures. “We hope our creative contributions will motivate and inspire people to support this important, worthy cause.”
For Macy’s discount tickets or updated information, visit www.tailsofhopefoundation.org. Macy’s discount shopping tickets, which also entitle the participants to be entered in a $500 Macy’s raffle, are available at Park Avenue Hair and Park Ridge Animal Hospital, both in Park Ridge, NJ, and Pet Nutrition in Nanuet, NY.
The new book by Amy Sohn is out and you can order it on Amazon.com! It is getting rave reviews from fans (5 stars on the Amazon rating system) and Gidget thinks its pretty good too!
Here’s an exerpt…
John Melfi: We auditioned only two dogs for the role of Samantha’s dog, and the one that we ended up choosing, Gidget, had to come back twice, and at different times of the day, so we could make sure she cold hump on cue. She’s a star.
Kim Cattrall: I’ve never really worked with animals, and now I know why. Gidget was the biggest star on the set because she got to go home first. But I love that Samantha finds this mutt that needs love and care. Her life involves family. and I like what the dog represents for her character. –Amy Sohn
