We have posted a few times recently about The Lasher Classic and our involvement with the SSPCA. We give over 20 % of our profits to local Non-Profits such as the SSPCA, who serve our community in ways that are near and dear to our hearts. However, being a small local business allows us to give back in ways that other people may not be able to.

One of the personal, hands on, ways that we are able to give back is to foster kittens. Working with FatKittyCity.org, located in El Dorado Hills, we foster cats & kittens until they are adopted. Fostering is essential. Fostering helps prevent the spread of disease and socializes kittens so that they are happier and healthier pets in their future homes. They are given 1-on-1 attention, more roaming space, and individual care. We personally donate all litter, food, medicine, and other necessities.

At the end of the fostering program, when the cat or kittens are ready to be adopted, they are given a beautiful start at life with their new families. They have all their shots, they are spayed or neutered, and they are happy & healthy. The cost to the future family is only $85, which is considerably less than the $300+ your average vet would charge.

We have fostered over 30 cats and Kittens so far. Some of it has been hard work, with sick kittens and a little bit of heart break. Overall, we are rewarded with the opportunity to care for, play with, and have in our home some of the cutest creatures on the planet.
Currently, we have a litter of kitten’s that are ready to go to their new forever homes. Ashton, Rowdy, Rizzoli, Isles, and Momma Juno are all in need of a loving forever homes. We even have a website just for showing off their cuteness, in the hopes of introducing them to the world before they can be adopted.

We do not have any families lined up for these kittens yet, let us know if you are interested! Or just take a moment to check out the charming babies and their darling antics.

For those of you who missed the event this weekend (we are sure you were very, very ill) it was fantastic! Sacramento really came out for this worthy cause and for the fun.

The horses weren’t the only ones that came out in style,the ladies were showing their impressive sophistication in wide brim hats and pretty summer dresses. There was even a hat contest!

The divot stomp was hilarious fun.

Their were multiple events that raised even more money for the SSPCA, including an auction for a ride in an Audi R8 and the opportunity to throw the first chucker, which raised more than $3,50o.

The food was delicious, our favorite was Emma’s Tamales! They were amazing and even had yummy veggie & vegan options. The horses were pretty awesome & they were beautiful to watch.

The binoculars (supplied by Power Of Two Promotions) were put to good use and our booth was very well received!

We had such a great time at this event, and we cannot wait to see what a great impact this event will be for the SSPCA. We can’t wait for the next event.

Happy Fourth of July and be safe!

 

5pm – BREAKING News – The GREAT News is that the event is now officially sold out!

We are helping to sponsor the first ever Lasher Polo Classic Tournament to support the Sacramento SPCA (as we previously mentioned on our blog). We are so excited to be a part of such a worthy cause, one that is so close to our hearts. It will be a great day with a lot of fun & giving people.

We wanted to give you a sneak peak at the items we will be providing at Chamberlain Ranch.

There will be hats, worthy of such an auspicious and royal occasion as a Polo match and of course our dog Jolie! 🙂

There will be blankets, for relaxing on the lawn and watching the exhibition match in high fashion.

Also, necessary for watching all the action in the most graceful and accurate way possible, there will be binoculars, sponsored by Foord, Van Bruggen, Ebersole & Pajak.

Possibly the most important, we will be donating the perfect water bottles to keep you hydrated in the beautiful California sun.

We will also have a sensational prize wheel, where you can win exciting prizes.

We give back to our community in many ways, but the SSPCA is one of our favorites and events like this one are always a blast! The Polo is going to be fun, but being able to support a good cause, and knowing where our efforts are going, makes the experience joyful. Come to the Lasher Polo Classic tomorrow, come by our booth and say hello!

We’ll see you there!

 

We are so proud to be one of the sponsors at this year’s Lasher Polo Classic!

We will be supplying hats, misters, blankets, and foldable water bottles in the beautiful sunshine at Chamberlain Ranch, alongside the Cosumnes River. The event will include an exhibition match, shopping in the Vendor Village, lively music, California Wine, traditional “Champagne Divot Stomp” as well as a Parade of Hats.

We are long time supporters of the Sacramento SPCA and have a special bond with the cause, as we are animal lovers (if you don’t believe me, check out our current personal pet project crazycatcam.com.) All of our animals have been”rescues” from shelters – whom we love dearly  and give us endless love in returnimg_0451. The SPCA does an absolutely vital service for our community and we are honored to be able to give back to our community through donations to the SPCA and through events like this one.

We will also have a booth, and will be giving away prizes! So come out and join us on Saturday June 30th from 3:30pm – 7:30pm at Chamberlain Ranch. Lawn seats start at only $25, VIP and Royal Club tickets and tables are also available.
