TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Pet Friends Love Bret’s Pets Rock Collection At Petsmart 

Max and Buddy want to thank you for their Bret Michaels’ Pets Rock collection toys available at Petsmart that they won in the rescue story contest! They love them! The snake that buddy has is very durable, which is hard to find because he chews up all his other toys, but this one seem almost indestructible! Max loves just hanging out with his ball, he is 14 yrs old so he don’t play much,  but he does like to just lay in he sun with it. Thank you!!! You made my furbabies very happy!

Bret Michaels’ Pets Rock Collection At Petsmart Brings Contest Winner –  The Davis Family Closer Together

To whom it may concern, 

I wanted to say thank you for sending my puppies the coolest Bret Michaels Pets Rock at Petsmart merchandise! They LOVE their new toys. I believe I submitted my story on your site about how we received our two fur babies. They are my world, just as a human baby is their parents world. They have been a lot more active with each other and on their own. This is such a good sign. 

Our eldest chihuahua/miniature pincher mix, has been a bit sick off and on lately and the youngest, 3yr old same breed has tried to get her to play and she wouldn’t have anything to do with him or playing. Now, they have toys and fun things to play with and they don’t tear up the toys like a few others they have done to in the past. 

Bret Michaels, Petsmart and team, thank you all so much for bringing our family closer and thank you for all that you do. I have attached some pictures of our fur babies and their new toys. I hope you all have a wonderful week, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! 

Sincerely, 

Sigourney, Ben, Jasmine, & Chopper Davis

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Inspired By Bret, Dana Pays It Forward To Help Elderly Woman

Hi Bret, 

You truly are an inspiration to me and others. I was in the grocery store last week and an elderly woman was in front of me. Her card was not working and couldn’t pay for her groceries. After watching this I just could not stand idly by. I volunteered to pay her bill and the poor lady just about fell over. The cashier and the other woman in line looked at me like I was completely crazy. All I could think of to say was we are taught to be charitable, right? If more of us did this, just took care of one another it could be a much happier world! You keep doing your thing brother and together we can make it better. Hope to see you in Chicago soon!

Dana

National Puppy Day – March 23, 2015

Charlie

Today is National Puppy Day, a day to bring awareness about puppy mills and available, adoptable animals at shelters and rescues looking for their very own loving forever homes.

The MEGI family has seen many puppies come through our homes and families, living happily through their golden years.

Last year, we took in a stray dog in hopes of finding her owner or a new home of her very own. The weather was turning cold and we just couldn’t imagine her trying to find a warm place to sleep on a vacant property.

We named her Pinky Lee and much like many dogs on our road and in our family, she just showed up outside our gate and never left. The previous property owners and neighbors have all had to deal with animals being dumped on our road for many, many years.

The dogs we didn’t keep got taken to rescues and found their families. Pinky Lee should have been one of those dogs, but she came with nine puppies that entered the world just a month after we took her in.

Nine puppies, five girls and four boys that are now almost 6 months old. As we search for homes for these puppies, we want to remind you when you are looking for your furry forever family member, visit your local shelter or contact a local rescue. The most adorable little faces are there waiting for homes – even a few older ‘puppies’ that deserve a chance to be loved as well.

Here’s a few of the Pinky Lee Nine to help celebrate National Puppy Day and let’s hope that all the puppies, and older dogs, get their loving families sooner than later. ~ Christine

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: 93.5 The Mix & KWWL-TV would like to introduce you to Jax

93.5 The Mix and KWWL-TV would like to introduce you to Jax.

7 year old Jaxton’s favorite character is the Grinch, but he’s far from him. He started doing acts of kindness around his community and school in exchange for paper hearts. Every time he shows an act of kindness, he places a heart on his wall to watch the Grinch’s heart grow. Whether it’s giving a hug or donating, he has created a ripple effect.

His teacher Ashley said, “Within the school there has been hundreds of kids who have done acts of kindness and they put their hearts on the wall and it has just continued to grow.” Jaxton cannot see the hearts though, he is blind.

About a year ago he was diagnosed with Batten Disease, which is a rare, inherited disease of the nervous system which is fatal.

In a recent interview with KWWL-TV, his mother Tina said, “We want to do what we can while we can because we know this disease is progressive, but he is laughing. Everybody should be able to laugh and do things and appreciate things.”

He may not be able to see the reactions from his givings, but his reward? Hearing people laugh.

Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see and in that sense, Jax can see it, but most importantly he feels it.

Tina said,”It’s not about us. It is that people are doing things for others and then giving the hearts to him so he can feel it. He doesn’t know what a random act is, he just knows he is creating a lot of hearts and a lot of smiles.”

Just like the Grinch’s heart that grew, so are Jaxton’s hearts. A beautiful way to see the powerful of kindness.

Now meet Anthony, a 5th grader from Cedar Falls, Iowa. He saw Jaxton’s story on KWWL-TV and wanted to get involved. He approached his principal at Lincoln Elementary with the idea to send Jax hearts. Anthony delivered over 300 hearts from staff and students! Anthony, YOU ROCK!

How awesome would it be for Jax to get hearts from all over the world and from an awesome rockstar with a HUGE heart? Please send hearts to:

Orange Elementary

6028 Kimball Ave.

Waterloo, IA 50701-9043

Thank you!
