I was just doing a little surfing through WI while waiting for the Clubhouse to be up and running again (continuing my ghost hunt) and happened upon this gem of a thread!

Heck YES! I would pay a little extra for a Webkinz pet knowing valuable dollars were going to help out animal shelters.

I am allergic to cats but I still have one (which we got from a no-kill shelter) and we absolutely adore him - he is a member of our family. We had to bathe him a lot when we first got him (something he absolutely hated!) but I'm now mostly immune to his dander so he no longer needs to be put through that "torture"!

I just thought I would share the pictures of my three precious pets that I adopted from the shelter!!! White Jack Russell Terrier-Poppi, black and white Jack Russell Terrier-Tessi, Kitty-Pollianna

I just love your "babies"!!!!!!!! Shelter animals are truly the best because they are just looking for someone to love them! I would spend extra for that definitely!!!!!!!!!

BTW, that is my shelter puppy Molly!!

A Perfectly FANTASTIC IDEA!!!!!

All of your ideas you've expressed were brilliant.
Love the collar ideas (only available with shelter pets), special pet items, a specific area in WW (like caring valley), and of course a portion of the sale to go to a shelter - love all the ideas!!!

I would definitely support this. I hope Ganz sees this - or I would urge you to contact Ganz.
Looking forward to seeing these one day.

You are so creative...I love your ideas! Pets from shelters are THE BEST PETS. I support shelters as much as I can, and I would CERTAINLY buy a Webkinz product for a few extra dollars that would support shelters, too.

Your in game ideas for collars and room themes are great, too!

Yes, exactly - And Webkinz Shelter Pets would be a very selfless act! Wow, that really makes me feel good. That is exactly what I am trying to do, I am SO glad I was able to accomplish that!

Pound puppies are the best!!!! I wouldnt think of getting a new dog from anywhere else. I think this is a great idea. Another way they could generate more money, is sell the caring valley tags (or a new series of tags) at the e-store, that way it would generate even more profit that could to charities. and i love the caring valley red tags. I would pay the same price for just the tag even wout the plushie, in fact i load the red tags on my acct and give the lil kinz to my daughter for her acct. Lizzy

I think this is a fantastic idea, and I would gladly pay more for a webkinz if part of that money helped no-kill shelters. Both of my cats are from a no-kill shelter, and they are not merely pets, but members of the family. I've always supported no-kill shelters and would be thrilled to merge my interests and have my WW addiction also help support such a wonderful cause. Thank you for putting this idea out there. I really hope Ganz hears this idea and gives it serious thought.

~Catlover!
Aw, thanks! That means a lot! I sure hope so! That's great! Aw, that is a neat idea! Silly Blazer LOL! Thank you, you too! Thanks for posting, I really appreciate it

They're wonderful pets- and usually cheaper I support this all the way! great idea!
Good for you! They are definitely fabulous pets! Thanks, I am so happy to hear that you support it! Thanks for posting and for sharing your story!

~Awnie
Thank you Tigergirl890! That is really great to know! I do too LOL. Yeah, I think they could do that without losing profits. Thanks for posting!

Jake was a bday gift for my sis, and Chloe was bcuz Jake died and I cannot live for long without a furry buddy. Chloe was hit by a car after running away and broke her leg. Her eyes just screamed please, please help me. I plan on volunteering there soon. This would be the smartest thing ever for Ganz. Awesome!
Thank you! Aw, that means a lot! Good for you! I am so glad you saved those animals lives! I know what you mean, I am sorry that Jake died. But, I am glad you got Chloe. Was Chloe hit after or before you got her? Good for you! We need more people like you! Haha, I think so too, now if we can only convince Ganz . . .

Back in 2003 we rescued my dog, Sparky, off the streets, and when we brought him to the animal shelter, even though he was only a pup, it sadly wasn't the first time they've seen him. They allowed us to adopt him if no one claimed him for a week. No one did, and now he has a good home.
Thank you! Hmm . . I think that is a great idea and would definitely encourage more people to adopt Shelter Pets, but I think it would be complicated for Ganz. However, you never know - Ganz HAS done things this difficult in the past. I love that you are thinking and contributing your ideas nonetheless!

Aw, poor Sparky. I am SO happy to hear that you rescued him AND you got to keep him! That is such a magical story! Thanks for sharing all you wonderful comments!

Thank you!! Good for you! That is wonderful, and you will make SUCH a difference in that kitten's life. Thank you, I sure hope they do.

Thank you. I know exactly what you mean, it is super hard to see them, and I don't think it's possible not to feel sad. Good for you! I absolutely LOVE hearing stories of success from shelters! Haha, no kidding!

I think a lot of animal lovers out there would buy one of these stuft animals. Even people who do not play webkinz or dont know what webkinz is might buy a pet. I mean some old lady could be shopping in the store and see a webkinz. She would bu it because it is cute and it helps animals. I think we should start a petition. I will start a petition.
