Amazon Smile Program

Help Our Organizations Every Time You Shop @ Amazon.com

Amazon has a wonderful program called “Amazon Smile” which contributes 0.5% back to 501(c)3 charitable organizations that have registered with their program.  The CSPCA has several organizations affiliated with us that are registered with the Smile program. You can help one of them every time you shop at Amazon.

When you are ready to shop, please go to smile.amazon.com, you need to select one of the following organizations before you begin shopping so they will receive donations from your eligible purchases.  You can select a different organization to benefit from your purchases every time you shop.  It is just that easy, just that quick!  Please share this with all your “non-dog” friends as well.

Please help our organizations and our dogs when you use Amazon by using the Amazon Smile program.  Thank you in advance for shopping online. Shop till you drop!

The organizations affiliated or associated with the CSPCA that are participating in the Amazon Smile program are as following:

Chinese Shar-Pei Charitable Trust
Chinese Shar-Pei Rescue Trust
Florida Chinese Shar-Pei Rescue
Mercer Island Eastside Orphans & Waifs- Canine Division
Mid-Atlantic Chinese Shar-Pei Rescue Operation, Inc.
Pei People Shar Pei Rescue, Inc
North American Shar-Pei Rescue, Inc.
Shar-Pei Rescue of Virginia, Inc.
Shar-Pei Savers

If your CSPCA affiliated rescue group currently has an Amazon Smile account and not listed, please let us know so we can include it in our list.  We need the name of your group as it appears on the Amazon Smile account.  If your group at a later date gets registered for a Smile account, let us know so we can add it to the list when we run this notice again.

CLEFT LIP OR PALATE RESEARCH PROJECT

Hello,
I am writing to request your assistance for a research study to investigate the incidence of orofacial clefts (cleft lip, cleft palate, or both) at birth in various breeds of dogs. This study is being performed by professor Santiago Peralta, DVM, DAVDC, and other colleagues in the Department of Clinical Sciences at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

We would like to anonymously survey breeders to determine how many live births of dogs with cleft lip or palate occurred in their breeding programs over a 12-month period. We are asking breed parent clubs and associated foundations for help distributing the survey and encouraging breeders to participate.

Here is a link to the survey:

Please let me know if you are interested in participating or if you have any questions. Dr. Peralta can be contacted via email at sp888@cornell.edu. Any suggestions on how you think this would be feasible for the organization you represent would be most welcome.

Thank you very much for your attention. My collaborators and I all look forward to working with you.

Best regards,
Nicholas Roman, MA
