February 2016 - It's the time of year to Share the Love! For Valentine's Day 2016 Because of a Dog is creating a Wall of Love!

Unfortunately, the few businesses we contacted did not approve our fundraiser so we decided to create our Wall of Love inside one of our homes!

Only 80 hearts are available so hurry and get yours! Donate to purchase as many as you want!

For the month of February you can purchase a heart for just a $2 donation! You can write the name of someone special, and yes furkids count, and/or include a heartfelt note. Every time a heart is added to the Wall of Love a picture of your heart will be added to this album. PM our page to let us know what you would like written on your heart!

Donations can be paid via PayPal - becauseofadog.ORG or you can mail a check to Because of a Dog, PO Box 3158, Bethlehem, PA 18017. When donating via PayPal please remember to click on "sending money to friends or family" or we will be assessed fees.

Because of a Dog is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization so you donation is tax deductible!

Thank you for Sharing the Love!

From Because of a Dog to all of you - Happy Valentine's Day!

Welcome to our Amazon Wish List! Click on Because of a Dog Wishlist.  We are hoping to place slip leads in police cruisers (minimum of 2 per cruiser) in the Lehigh Valley, PA area and supply the municipalities with dog bowls for the strays they bring in. That's a lot of slip leads needed!  The slip leads are the most important item. Currently the officers have to utilize whatever they have available (catchpole, rope, etc). A slip lead is much more friendly and safer for the dog and the officer (assuming the dog is friendly).
