I know that so many of you are animal lovers (I know this because many of your dogs have been flower dogs and ring bearers!), and what better way to personalize your wedding day than to include our fuzzy friends who are less fortunate to the celebration! Not in person; most wedding reception venues frown on that…. but there are many ways you can share your joy, and many are found on the Animal Rescue Site.

When you enter the site, you can click on a link that will enable their sponsors to donate food to shelters, and from there you can go shopping! They have a whole bridal section of the store, which has great gifts for bridesmaids, your future spouse and yourself! A portion of the profits goes right to animal welfare.

You can even use the site to make donations instead of buying favors; you can vaccinate shelter pets, help to rescue birds who are victims of oil spills and feed orphaned baby elephants. What an incredible way to add to your wedding day!
