Samuel Ramirez, local radio personality, is having a birthday! Because he has power to bring people together and because he is just a really nice guy – he is wanting to raise money for the Laredo Animal Protective Society instead of getting gifts. What a nice sentiment. Unfortunately, many times think of “me, me, me” but Mr. Ramirez is showing an example of giving back while having fun. He says:

I have been up n down. Just tell everyone I’m thanking God for another year of life by trying to help a cause. I do it every year.

I dont need birthday gifts. God has blessed me. The dogs need it more than i do! Just show up to the F-bar and have a drink with me.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to join everyone. I am just not an F-Bar person. I am a NO bar person, but I will continue helping the Animal Shelter when I can.

    The Laredo Animal Protective Society/Animal Shelter , is non-profit organization, and the only Animal Shelter in Laredo, Texas. Needless to say all stray, and unwanted animals have no where else to turn except there. While it may not be the best place for the animals it is a place to patiently await a loving home for these dogs and cats. I think it is important that everyone understand that the shelter staff does not euthanize animals because they want to,they do it because of the lack of space available to house these pets. It is important for people to help LAPS not only by donating food, and supplies, but money is also essential in tring to maintain the upkeep of the facility. Also help out by promoting adoption of shelter pets, as opposed to pure breeds. Fosting a pet and attending Pet Fest Adoption drives is also a great help. Last, but not least anyone who is able and knows how to write Grants requesting funding for the shelter can greatly assist the short and over worked staff at LAPS, I am sure it would be greatly appreciated….. So let’s put our PAWS together for Mr. Sammy Ramirez and help by attendign Samboozie 2010 @ F-Bar this Saturday, Aug.7, 2010 from 8pm to 2am, and if you won’t be able to attend, a donation is greatly appreciated.
