What? Did you say dogs and turkeys at the same time on the same day? When someone asks what you’re doing on Thanksgiving this year, tell them you’ll be watching T.V. but not the football game or the Macy Day parade. Nope, this year tell them you’ll be watching the Fox’s “Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular” show. It airs on Thanksgiving night (Thursday) to help“ homeless pets find permanent loving homes before Black Friday.
A Telethon for Terriers and More
Get ready to pull out your favorite blanket and curl up on the couch once you have had your fill of family, friends, and pumpkin pie. From 8pm to 10pm on Thanksgiving evening the telethon for dogs will take place, and you won’t want to meet the star studded event. A fabulous celebrity line up will be helping to host the event, but the dogs will be something to keep an eye on, especially if you are in search of a new best friend. Main hosts Hillary Swank and Jane Lynch will be joined by actors, “Scarlett Johansson, Betty White, Josh Duhamel and Kristen Bell as well as singers Fergie, Miranda Lambert, Paula Abdul, LeAnn Rimes and Kesha will be on hand to help the animals and, hopefully, turn the event into an annual affair.” The program is partnering with Petfinder.com and will feature dogs that have been saved from shelters by rescue organizations, but the dogs are currently still in kennels or foster homes awaiting that special place to call their own. From pit bulls to Chihuahua’s and a three-legged Great Dane, it’s going to be one night you will not want to miss as these canines search for their permanent loving home.
Football or 4 Paws?
The biggest competition for the show will be Thanksgiving football. The presentation will feature entertainment to help the dogs looking for homes. Cutest puppy, celebrity look-a-like contests and a performing act by “the 10 flipping, twirling Olate dogs, past million-dollar winners of “America’s Got Talent.” For me, Thanksgiving just got sweeter with good food, great company of friends and family, and the finale of dog rescue with outstanding amusement.
Yep, for this rescue loving heart my butt will be planted on the couch rooting for the four legged fur kids and the amazing people giving up their evening to help them find a forever home. Gosh, I love the holidays, especially when they go to the dogs!
