It’s that time of the year again—ShadFest 2014 in Lambertville, NJ!

   As many of you know, Shad Fest is a major fundraiser for Make Peace, as well as an excellent opportunity for us to show the public that Greyhounds make a smooth transition from being professional athletes to cherished companions. Every year, several adoptions result from people falling in love with this gentle breed.

   In order to be optimally successful, we need your help. The festival runs from 12:30-5:30 on Saturday and Sunday, April 26th and 27th. Our booth must be fully staffed both days for the entire time. Right now, we’re a bit short-handed. Can you please help? You need not have a Greyhound to participate. Just bring your enthusiasm for Greyhound adoption! Our booth is located on North Union Street at Church Street.  We’re under the blue tent right in front of the big white church.

   Please contact Kathy Williams so she can work you into the schedule or answer any questions you might have. She, and her husband Jared Keller, organize the booth and have turned it into our signature event of the year. Kathy is waiting to hear from you—and the hounds are counting on you!


   Just in time for Adopt A Greyhound month, Karen Milliken Young, long-time and multiple Make Peace adopter, has come up with a 'beautiful' way to help Make Peace's always meager finances: a SABIKA JEWELRY fundraiser.
   SABIKA JEWELRY is all hand-made, using Swarovski Crystal and is a company with generosity at its core. Made for every woman, SABIKA looks great with everythingfrom jeans to a little black dress!
   From April 6th through April 18th, SABIKA JEWELRY will donate 10% of its sales to Make Peace.
   Further, if you book a party through this event, they will donate an additional $15. to us.
   And as a final bit of generosity, Karen will donate her hostess credits to buy a Sabika item which she will then donate to our Silent Auction table at the Homecoming.
Thank you, Karen, for thinking of us and for coming up with this event!

Roger Penske (left), son of the late, great, Lassinagh Silky and prolific sire Flying Penske, goes nose to toes with his Mini Me. This paper mache statue, made by Vermont artist Terri Malloy, is the spittin' image of Roger. And why not? He was the model! The piece was created and donated to commemorate Make Peace With Animals'  25th Annual Homecoming. Luckily for Roger, his adopter had the winning bid at the silent auction.
