Spay and Neuter Kansas City is in need of “laundry soap, bleach, newspaper & cardboard flats for litter boxes! Newspaper & flats on the top of the list as these cannot be bought. If you or anyone you know (neighbors) has a newspaper subscription with old papers stacking up, we could really use them! Thanks in advance!” Additionally, they’re in need of an experienced foster home for a new mother and here pups. Finally, you can read up on this week’s volunteer opportunities here.
The Natural Products Expo West is happening in Anaheim this weekend and, for those of us not lucky enough to live in Cali, quarrygirl has a massive roundup of her favorite products, including tweets from Chicago Soydairy (like peeps, but vegan!); mozzarella sticks made with Teese cheese (also vegan!); the new pepperjack-flavored Daiya cheese; and some soy pepperoni crumbles from el burrito – to name just a few. Cue: tummy rumbles.

Finally, I’d hoped to have a list of resources available to those who’d like to donate to relief efforts in Japan; unfortunately, I haven’t yet found the time to research and compile a list. Instead, check out this guide to giving from charity watchdog Charity Navigator – and please think twice about giving to the American Red Cross, which has a history of misusing emergency funds, conducts vivisection, and discriminates against GLBTQ folks. Food for Life Global is a personal favorite, but it’s not yet clear whether they’re providing relief to the quake and tsunami survivors in Japan.
