Tomorrow at 12 pm SLT an amazing event, months in the making, will open to the public. Cirque De Seraphim is a fundraising event that will benefit the ASPCA. This is an event that is incredibly personal for me and my husband because our first dog was adopted at the ASPCA headquarters in Manhattan. He’d been hit by a car as a baby, and the ASPCA saved his life, and when he was ready, put him up for adoption. He was an amazing dog. Incredibly smart, sweet and born with wanderlust, just like his humans. We took him on many adventures in the nine years he was with us… and I still miss him every day. Arthur’s story can be read in full on the Cirque blog, along with a photo collage.
In the meantime, this event looks amazing and has so many talented designers who were willing to share their profits to benefit animal welfare. Please be sure you check out the official event blog for the maps, full opening information and sneak peeks at what will be available. Also, you can read the stories of other shelter pets who found forever homes with those involved in this amazing event here.
And if the blog sneak peeks aren’t enough for you, check out the Flickr group for even more!
On a final note, I want to add that winter is often the most difficult time for shelters. This event is perfectly timed to provide a much needed boost in funding for the ASPCA and all the work they do for animals. If you are participating, thank you. My Arthur got the chance to live and be a part of my life because of people who shared so generously of their money and time… you are giving other animals that same chance with your acts of kindness.
A very emotional Lucie
