Animal lovers of Fayetteville, rejoice! The winner of Blanton’s “Answer the Call” for February 2014 is the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society. Here’s the Blanton’s team presenting the swell people of FAPS with their $500 check:
If you haven’t checked out our “Answer the Call” program yet, you really should. It’s Blanton’s way of giving back to the community that has given so much to us – and in a nifty way that gets the community involved in giving back, too.
First, we ask our customers and neighbors in the Fayetteville area to nominate charities and organizations that are doing dandy work in our community. From those nominations, we choose 3 a month, which you can then vote for on our website for the rest of the month.
The Fayetteville Animal Protection Society is a boss example of the kind of organization we like to reward through the “Answer the Call” contest. They not only provide a safe haven for animals that need a loving home – giving them vaccinations, a bath, love, and a name, and getting them spayed or neutered – but also educate the community in how to prevent unwanted pets and be responsible pet owners.
Because they provide so much care to each animal that comes through their doors, however, the veterinary expenses can get a little crazy. The “Answer the Call” check will go to helping pay for these expenses, meaning that more animals in Fayetteville will have a chance at finding a loving home.
We don’t think you have to be a pet owner or lover to be jazzed about the great work that the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society is doing in our community. At Blanton’s, we’re proud that we could support their efforts to promote responsible pet ownership. Keep up the good work!
But it wouldn’t be right to thank just the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society for their super-groovy work – thank you also to everyone who nominated and voted in February’s contest. But that doesn’t mean you should kick back and relax. We have nominees for March now! So hop over there now, get the 4-1-1 on this month’s nominees, and fill out the form at the bottom of the page to cast your vote.
Oh, and for all you hip nonprofit charities or organizations doing great things in the Fayetteville area: If you’d like to nominate yourself for “Answer the Call”, contact us here. We’re happy to include you!
