We have been in business of selling jewelry since 1993. Your purchase helps us care for dozens of cats & dogs. We are involved in cat & dog rescue and it takes a lot of time & money to spay/neuter, feed and provide vet care for them. If you don't get an immediate reply to an email we are probably cleaning litter boxes or feeding the fuzzies. One of our current projects is to care for and spay/neuter a feral cat colony. We also have about 60+ animals at our sanctuary.
