Along with many other private and businesses in Arizona and throughout the nation, Lost Lizard Trading Company is supporting the families of the 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shots, an elite group of fire fighters, who lost their lives in the line of duty while fighting a wild fire in Arizona on June 30, 2013. A significant portion of the sale of a large 48 by 51 inch pictorial lifestyle rug by Sarah Tso was donated to the Prescott Firefighters’ Charities which is providing support to the surviving families. This rug is unique in that it is an exemplar for this rug type in Don Dedera's book, Navajo Rugs: The Essential Guide. Bidding ended July 22 with nearly 100 views, a dozen or more watchers and a $324 contribution to the Prescott Firefighters' Charities to directly support the families.
Our rescued rat terrier, Princess Sophia AKA Sophie, as well as her furry friends at the Lizard's home rock, heartily recommend supporting The Animal League of Green Valley. So we do so through purchases at The Attic Thrift Shop as a source of Lost Lizard inventory and through eBay Giving Works sales of books and other items. Sophie says that TALGV gave her a chance to turn her life around--believe me, she is quite a rascal.
For 29 years, TALGV has been provtalgv.org/iding shelter and care for cats and dogs in need in the Green Valley area, a long valley now marked by an interstate from Tucson to Nogales on the US - Mexico border. TALGV's mission is "A Home for Every Pet". TALGV is an award-winning non-profit staffed with over 400 volunteers contributing nearly 100,000 service hours a year. Sophie and I believe that the most amazing feature of the Animal League is the hands-on time provided to the animals by the volunteers. Pets are gently handled, exercised and even massaged to help calm and socialize them. Sophie says she thought it was a doggie spa during her time at the shelter.
