It’s Be Kind To Animals Week!

May 9, 2012

If you follow Royal Pet Club and Lorenzo’s tweets, you’d know this week is Be Kind to Animals Week.

Promoted by the American Humane Association, the week has such stars as Betty White and Lorenzo Borghese giving their all to the cause. And what a great cause it is.

Even if you’re always kind to animals (and if you’re here on this site, reading this, then of course you are!) there’s always something else you can do. Volunteer to help at a shelter, promote the importance of spaying and neutering, or even just bring home something special for your pet (or allocate some extra time for extra pampering and attention).

Whatever you do, please help by spreading the word. The ASA has some great information on their Be Humane page, too.

Even though this week is Be Kind to Animals week, why not try and make every week Be Kind to Animals Week?

Prince Lorenzo Borghese Attending 2nd Chance Benefit Tonight – Will You?

March 27, 2012

That’s right, everybody’s favourite prince is attending the American Humane Association’s Second Chance Fund fundraiser this evening, and you’re invited along!

The event is at the Ainsworth at 122 W26th Street in Manhattan, and is a wonderfully affordable fundraiser (with lots of fun to be had!). The suggested donation is $10 at the door, and if you get thirsty, there’s half off the specialty cocktail menu and a $4 Paige amber ale! Music is by DJ Friendly Greg and the art show is by animal portraitist Amanda Mikelberg.

So if you’re in Manhattan, between 7-9 this evening, go along and have some fun with Lorenzo and raise some money for animals in need. It’s a pretty fantastic deal, don’t you think?

Lorenzo hopes to see you there.

The Hero Dog Awards – Lorenzo Will Be A Judge

September 26, 2011

Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a costume parade, with dogs having to dress up as super heros!

Presented by Cesar pet food, The American Humane Association is honouring the hero dogs in our society who do so much.

Whether they work in rescue, as therapy dogs or guide dogs or for law enforcement, these dogs work tirelessly each day to not only keep us safe, but help us in so many ways.

The competition is a way to bring awareness, give thanks and raise money to help these dogs continue their good work. Click here for all the details!

Best of all, Prince Lorenzo Borghese will be flying to LA to take part in judging the finalists. And he’ll be in fine company with Whoopi Goldberg, Victoria Stilwell and the wonderful Betty White!

The winners will be announced live at a star studded gala on October 1st in LA, so if you’re in the area, please buy a ticket, have fun and help some dogs.

Tonight, A Tribute to the 9/11 Rescue Dogs

September 8, 2011

Yesterday, we spoke about the hero dogs of 9/11, well if you want to show your support, join Lorenzo, Whoopi Goldberg, Victoria Stilwell and others in celebration of their bravery tonight.

The Tribute to the Hero Dogs of 9/11 is to be held tonight at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York City, with a reception and media outreach starting at 5.30, and the dinner program at 6.30pm.

And, on Veteran’s Day, the Hallmark Channel will broadcast a  90 minute tribute to American Humane Association’s Hero Dogs, so make sure you tune in.

The dinner’s proceeds will go towards helping the American Humane Society fund their many worthy projects, including the Red Star™ Animal Emergency Services, which rescues and shelters animals after natural disasters; Animal-Assisted Therapy programs; and programs that benefit children in the child protective system.

The event is in honour of our four-footed heros of 9/11, and they will all be remembered, including Sirius, the only dog to die during the disaster, and Roselle, who led her blind master and his colleague down 78 flights of steps to safety in a World Trade Center building 15 minutes before it collapsed.

Its stories like this and others that will be spoken about tonight, and these dogs will be remembered, honoured and celebrated. Animals are so much more than a companion who we feed in the morning and night, and who greets us when we come home. Sometimes they are a reason for living, or the reason we are still alive today (often in a more literal meaning).

But whether an animal is a bonafide hero who worked tirelessly in a disaster to save lives or bring home something of the dead so a family can put their loved one to rest, or simply our best friend never judges and keeps loneliness at bay, they all deserve to have a loving home, and to live in comfort and safety, no matter what their role to society is.

So tonight, if you can’t make it, then click here to either donate, join up, or take action to help the AHA in their wonderful work, or simply give thanks to our own Prince Lorenzo Borghese, who is representing us all, as he honours the often-overlooked heros of 9/11.
