Share Our Love Foundation (SOL)

Mom and I joined Ashley Oelsen, President and Founder of SOL (Sharing our Love) Foundation at the Los Angeles East Valley Animal Shelter in the San Fernando Valley.   The recently relocated and upgraded East Valley Shelter is one of the busiest facilities in the Los Angeles Animals Services Department with 165 dog kennels and one of the largest shelter community rooms that has hosted a number of celebrity pet causes and provided canine adoptions for Hollywood A-listers like Drew Barrymore and Hilary Swank.

Ashley Oelsen, referred to as the “Harriet Tubman” of the dog world,  had recently returned from  transporting 6 canines from the East Valley Shelter to a Canadian rescue group, Adopt a Paw, Pethaven, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  The East Valley Shelter has had a very successful adoption relationship with this Canadian rescue organization-particularly for Chihuahuas-which are seen as exotic as well as with Pitbulls-no bans here on “bully breeds.”

Ashley is an amazing young woman who also devotes her time to teaching inner city school children about caring and respect for animals. Studies have shown that child neglect and abuse and animal abuse are both elements of a family violence system.  Animal abuse has been found in 99% of families that 
were under state supervision for the physical abuse of their children.

Divine Design at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills

One way to celebrate the holiday season that I enjoy is with the Hollywood stars gathered at a gala for a good cause-the 20th anniversary of Divine Design, an upscale shopping event  which benefits Project Angel Food, an organization which offers a free meal-delivery program to those affected with HIV/AIDS, cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.

Pet Friendly Beverly Hills

So when is a power outage a good thing?  When Mom decides it would be more comfortable to check into a nice (pet friendly of course) hotel instead of sitting in the dark with no heat (I was definitely on board with the idea).

So, we headed for the delightful boutique hotel, Maison 140 (former home of the silent screen actress, Lillian Gish), ordered a delish room service dinner and enjoyed the comforts of a very stylish room (interior designer, Kelly Woerstler performed her retro glam magic) and heavenly bed (high thread count sheets are a necessity).  Manager, Eric Ma gave us his personal attention and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating.

Maison 140 is just a couple of blocks from Rodeo Drive and we were right on time for Mr. and Mrs. Claus to appear in front of Tiffany's.

Who knew Tiffany's had elegant gifts for four legged shoppers as well? I was inspired to write an article for HollywoodToday:Gifts for your best friend

How about my initial in sterling silver?

This is a Tiffany card case-perfect for all the Red Carpet events I hope to attend.
