Bringing Soft Side To Every Classroom

If you’re a teacher or work with kids in any capacity, we will gladly send you Soft Side posters free-of-charge. Our Softies are the kind of role models that are so desperately needed these days and we believe that by sharing their stories, we not only create a better world for animals, but also build better adults. To request a package, email: gro.edistfosruoywohsnull@ofni.

Little Man Fund

Twelve years ago an emaciated, banged up kitty showed up at our door and changed our lives forever. His big personality led us to name him Little Man and the relationship he formed with my husband was the inspiration for Show Your Soft Side. On June 15, 2017 Little Man’s heart could no longer keep up with his larger-than-life persona and we had to say a tearful good-bye to our baby. Many friends donated in his memory and we’ve decided to use those funds to help a local rescue or individual who feeds colonies and/or helps place street cats in loving homes. It’s a way for us to keep Little Man’s memory alive and make a difference in the lives of other Baltimore street cats.

If you’d like to honor a lost pet by donating to the Little Man Fund, please indicate that on your gift.

This year’s proceeds were split equally between the caretakers for the Peninsula Colony and the Feral Cats of Bethlehem Steel. Our 2019 winners will be announced at next year’s Pawject Runway.

The Love Leads Project

The Love Leads Project logo

We’re proud to partner with the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office, Pet+ER and Earthtreks on providing first responders with the tools necessary for humanely dealing with situations involving animals. Each of The Love Leads slip leashes are made by hand and given to local police departments and other first responders in conjunction with training on how to recognize and successfully charge animal abuse and neglect. This collaboration of like-minded individuals and organizations is dedicated to bringing awareness to the thousands of unreported animal abuse and neglect cases in the Baltimore area and bringing justice to suffering animals.
