Toki Poki’s Wuvable Wabbit Contest & Collection Pack!

Our awesome friend Toki is at it again! This time, this cute Boston Terrier pup is wrangling up some wascally wabbits to help bring smiles to the kids at Children’s Hospitals nationwide. And of course, I Love Rescue Animals wants to help support Toki Poki as much as we can, so we went searching high and low for a wabbit of our own.

We succeeded. Kinda.

Well. We think he makes a good wabbit. Good job, Snarf. πŸ™‚

The Contest & Cards

Toki Poki is running the Wuvable Wabbit Contest until midnight tomorrow. What’s the contest all about? It’s all in support of the Toki Poki Bunny Hop – another fantastic card collection pack brought to you by our favorite pet trading cards with a purpose! These collection packs will be sent to Children’s Hospitals across the nation and you could get a chance to have your favorite wuvable wabbit included in the pack by submitting a picture by tomorrow at midnight!

Yep. Tomorrow. Midnight. Deadline: April 13, 2011, 11:59pm. GO!

If you don’t get a chance to submit a picture, you can still take part by voting for your favorite picture on the Toki Poki Facebook Gallery (you can find more instructions there). The top 10 voted pictures will end up being the cards for the new Wuvable Wabbit collection pack! How awesome is that?

It’s pretty awesome.

So what are you waiting for? Go check out the Wuvable Wabbit Contest Page on Toki Poki and help make kids (and wabbits) smile!

ILRA Partners with Great Nonprofits!

Animal Welfare CampaignI Love Rescue Animals is proud to announce that we have partnered with Great Nonprofits to bring to the public the 2010 Animal Welfare Campaign, a great opportunity for all nonprofit animal organizations, rescues, and shelters. Along with us, Great Nonprofits has also partnered with the American Humane Association, Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Humane Society of the United States, Wildlife Forever,, K9 Magazine, and Pet Museum and we are all asking for your help to identify top-rated nonprofits protecting the welfare of the animals in our homes, communities, and around the world.

What this campaign is designed to do is showcase the hard-working nonprofits in the animal community. Even with the economy slowly on the rise, animal groups are still suffering and in need of help. Not sure how you can help? Well that’s where this campaign comes in. Tell us about YOUR experience – how are these organizations having an impact? Which ones are great? Which ones need some improvement? Your participation in this campaign helps identify the nonprofits that are making a difference on behalf of animals, both wild and domestic, here and overseas.

In 2009 over 450,000 people read reviews of thousands of nonprofits at – written by donors, volunteers, board members and by the general public. These reviews are also visible on GuideStar. Whether you are a part of a nonprofit organization, a volunteer, a board member, a client served or a donor, we invite you to participate in 2010 Animal Welfare Campaign and help speak out for those nonprofit animal organizations that you love.

Benefits of this Campaign:

  • Recognition: Every organization that gathers 10 or more positive reviews during the month of July will make the Great Nonprofits Top-Rated Animal Welfare Nonprofits List.
  • Community Engagement: Great opportunity for nonprofits and their community members to interact and engage directly.
  • First-person stories: Clients, volunteers, donors and others share with the public, in their own words, how this nonprofit serves its community. Nonprofits can use this resource of powerful and authentic stories to engage donors and volunteers.
