January 2013 - Elwood Retires!
A Message from Elwood's Mom.
As 2013 is upon us, I have decided to retire Elwood.
Since 2006 when this “angel” boy came into my life, he has worked tirelessly on behalf of homeless and abused animals everywhere. Elwood has traveled extensively in NJ in addition to PA, NY, LA, CA, MD, and VA appearing at over 200 events raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for innumerable rescue groups and non-profit animal organizations. He has helped children and adults to understand that it’s OK to be different and to embrace diversity.
As an “international” celebrity whose message and beautiful face has appeared in countless countries on television shows, news broadcasts, and newspapers in Germany, Japan, England, China, Brazil, Chile, India (just to name a few) – as well as the United States, he has inspired others to join him in spreading the word to ADOPT homeless animals and to Be Kind to Animals…and each other – for it is through kindness to all creatures that our world will become a gentler more loving place.
So although I will continue to be active in every way possible to educate people about the millions of homeless animals in our nation and worldwide, Elwood will be laying back enjoying his retirement years knowing that for a little dog of 5 lbs…HE has spread a powerful message these past 6 years and surely has made a difference in the lives of so many.
Elwood and I encourage all his fans to continue to share Elwood's message to bring about a day when all animals have a safe and loving place to rest their heads, and to be active participants in making our world a better place for animals and people through kindness and compassion to all beings.
Thank you for all the love and support over the years. We are forever grateful.
Karen & Elwood
