Pet Love

Steve and I have decided that instead of giving out favors at the wedding that we would like to do a charitable donation.

Since we love our Chewie so much I think that we are going to do a donation to a local shelter. I had thought about doing a national organization, but I think that it would be nicer to give to something locally. Although the wedding is in St Louis I think we will probably give to an organization where we live. Here are just a few of the local shelters:
Humane Society of Greater Kansas City
Heart of America Humane Society – Overland Park
Wayside Waifs
Animal Haven

I have also thought about instead of doing a monetary donation, buying some items from a few shelters wish lists. Things like food, beds, etc. The benefit to doing a monetary donation though is that my work and I bet Steve’s does too, will do matching.

To go along with our idea of a donation we want to display other peoples loved ones. So each table will be named after a guests pet. The head table will of course be “Chewie”. :)
