Dog Announces $35,000
Gift to Study
the Rabies Vaccine
Chiclet T. Dog, Jan
Rasmusen and two anonymous donors have made a joint
$35,000 matching gift to the
Challenge Fund Charitable Trust.
Throughout the summer, they'll match any donation of $100 or more,
donating $1 for every $2 donated by you. Donate $500 or more
and Chiclet will also send you a free inscribed and signed
copy of her award-winning book, Scared
Straight Scoop on Dog Care.

We really want to help your nonprofit animal cause raise money. We’ll sell books to your organization at a really low price so you can resell them and keep the profits. Having a raffle or silent auction? Ask us about a donation of books. Also
to put our
products on your website and earn money when your supporters “click through”
buy. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
“Jan sells her books at a reduced price to not-for-profit organizations to assist with fundraising efforts. I ordered 25 copies which were sent to me immediately (autographed and paw-tographed even!) at an incredibly affordable price. In fact, after selling only 8 books, our animal welfare group had paid for our initial investment, so every penny collected from the remaining 17 books will go directly into our group!
I encourage other animal welfare groups to take advantage of the opportunity Jan and Chiclet are providing. The ability to offer something unique to contributors -- something they can actually use -- is invaluable!”

Chiclet and I did
our very first book signing at Barnes and Noble bookstore in Encinitas, CA. We pledged 10% of our proceeds that day to SNAP, the Spay Neuter Action Project, a group providing low cost sterilization to dogs and cats. (Barnes and Noble also contributed from sales of all books that day.) SNAP has elected to take their proceeds in books, which they can sell to make even more money.
Chiclet was asked to be a guest supermodel in a doggy fashion show benefiting Friends of Palm Springs Animal Shelter. The canine couturiere is

We had great fun at the Las Vegas Barnes and Nobel doing a signing to benefit the Golden Retriever Rescue (below).
But it was a long two days of book signings benefiting charities, finishing at a Las Vegas Border's Books.
