Pets, and especially rescue pets, are hugely important to our staff and to our audience.&nbsp; When I saw these CDs I saw a great opportunity for us to work with one of our outstanding community organizations for our mutual benefit.&nbsp; We’re looking forward to a friendly competition among our donors to see which CD generates more support.&nbsp; If it’s Cat Tales, our donation will go to cat adoption care.&nbsp; If it’s Dog Tales, it’ll go to dog adoption care.&nbsp; But, as we see it, everyone wins.” - <strong>Molly Motherwell, WEMU General Manager</strong></p><p></p><p></p></blockquote><p>Current WEMU donors have the opportunity to give through the recently-sent mail campaign.&nbsp; WEMU’s on-air pledge drive runs April 4-11 and listeners may give online anytime at wemu.org.&nbsp; WEMU will use its web page and Facebook page to promote the partnership and to post pictures of on-air hosts and their pets.</p><p></p><blockquote><p>“Music and pets make life so much more enjoyable!
