Excerpt from Spotlight on “A Dog’s Life Rescue”....By Lindsay Warren

Picture from 'A Dog's Life Rescue' main page
This is where “Supernatural’s” Jared Padalecki comes into the picture. He recently formally endorsed “A Dog’s Life Rescue.” Jared got involved through a mutual friend of Allison. “Jared has two rescue dogs of his own, which I am sure you know about, and he wanted to help more with animals and charities,” Allison said. When Jared had some time off work in Vancouver, he came home to LA and he got to meet “Mika.” Allison said the two really hit it off! “Mika really took to Jared and he was so great with her.” (Why does this not surprise us?)..

While in town, Jared was also able to go on a street rescue with Allison. He plans on going on more rescues with the group and will continue to work with the group on education and community awareness. Allison added, “He respects what ‘A Dog’s Life Rescue’ does and we are so happy to have him involved. It’s been a good match.” (We think so too!)..

Full interview here.

Don't forget, if you make a donation to 'A Dog's Life Rescue', let them know at Support Supernatural and leave a note for Jared, Jensen or both!

I really should have posted this before, but RL has been kicking my ass and Easter has snuck up on me on little fuzzy bunny paws!

Anyway, NEXT year, if you are looking for a great story to read, for your self, or any children in your life, you should check out The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by Dubose Heyward.

I got it from Scholastic Book Services back in 1st grade and loved it! I found it again about six years ago, after we moved here and I couldn't believe how wonderful and 'contemporary' the underlying message was.

A little country girl bunny wants to grow up to be an Easter Bunny. Everyone tells her that she can't. She end up getting married and having 21 children. Then she gets a chance to go and try out. All of the others are cityboy jack rabbits and they laugh at her. But she uses the gifts she already has, perseveres and works hard and as an aside teaches her children about independence and cooperation. And then her courage, endurance and compassion earn her a special gift.

Jared has cancelled his appearance at the Cherry Hill, NJ, Creation Con.
From Creationent.com
February 20, 2009: We have been advised that Jared Padalecki has an unforeseen personal commitment that prevents him from attending this convention. Jared has been a great friend to Creation Entertainment and to his loyal fans and we look forward to working with him again soon, including in LA in a few weeks. While a cancellation of a star of Jared's stature is never pleasant we are working on providing the absolute very best convention we can and as such today we have announced the addition of four new guests for the convention: JIM BEAVER, CHAD LINDBERG, GABRIEL TIGERMAN, and TODD STASHWICK. We will be refunding payments to those that ordered separate Jared Photo Ops and autograph tickets early next week. We will be adding autograph tickets and photo ops for our new guests early next week as well.

ALL GUESTS are contracted to appear and all convention contracts specify that appearances are tentative and subject to change as film and television work demands take precedence.

Of course this was also reported on the Supernatural Conventions MySpace Page, and Anita, who maintains the page, also posted this in response to questions.

Jared has a family emergency and we feel very sad for both him and the fans. It's not our fault. That's all I know. It's very disappointing for all of us. It's terrible and Creation can't do anything about it other than try to offer everyone additional guests for the NJ Convention.

It could be a serious emergency that will require his presence for the next few weeks, or, as justannanow posted on Supernatural_TV, it could be that he has to leave filming now to take care of the emergency, so he'll have to make up filming during the convention dates.

I'm really sorry for everyone who bought tickets, and especially for those who won the lunch, not sure what will happen with that, nothing on the Creation page yet, I know this is disappointing and no one can afford to lose that kind of money.

But I'm also really concerned for Jared, it's so soon after losing Kim, I can't imagine how upsetting this must be. My thoughts and prayers are with him and and his family and I hope everything turns out okay.

By now I'm sure you all know that Jared will be at the New York Comic Con on Saturday February 7th.

I can't go, unfortunately, but I have an idea for those of you who can.

Wear a black armband for Kim. I think it might help Jared to know that we (his fans, Supernatural fans, Kim fans) are mourning Kim too.

You could make an armband from almost anything, just throw a black scrunchi on if you want. If I were going though, I would probably buy some black ribbon and a paint pen. Write Kim's name, or 'We Miss You Kim', or something to indicate whom you are mourning and tie it on. Craftier people can probaly sew one. If anyone has button making capabilities you could make a button with Kim's pic, wrap the black material around your arm and secure it with the button. The bands are traditionally worn on the left arm midway between the shoulder and the elbow.

I have put myself in Jared's place to think how I would feel if this were to happen to me. For instance, if a good friend of mine died, and I went into a restaurant and a bunch of strangers were wearing armbands in mourning for my friend, I'd be touched.

So, if you think this is a good idea, please post it on your LJ, so fans who are actually going might see it, and decide if they'd like to do it or not.

I'm sorry to say this, but if you think this is a bad, idea, certainly do not post it, but also please do not post how lame or wrong headed you think it is either. I am really pretty upset about Kim's death and I can't handle ending up on some goddamed Fandom Secrets LJ to boot. The same with comments, if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. Yes, I'm a little fragile right now which makes me a criticism pussy.

Now, on a similar note, from canadiangoddess, UPDATE FROM SUPERNATURAL SET **NO SPOILERS - THIS IS ABOUT KIM**
