"It's Raining Cats and Dogs" The Song. The Movie. The Animal Shelter in Claiborne County.

If you've read this blog, you know I'm involved in getting an animal shelter built in my adopted home in northeast Tennessee. Since I'm the PR person for the shelter I take lots of pictures of our progress but I've never known what to do with them. Well along came my brother, Peter, with "It's Raining Cats and Dogs," a song he wrote especially for the shelter. I combined it with the pics and, ta-da, we have a video!

The story line is simple. Shelter volunteers are busy raising money and building the shelter. Funding for this project is entirely from donations and fundraisers and, whoo-buddy, it's a lot of work! Glad thing we love what we're doing!

There is a cameo appearance in the video by the PAL Mobile, a low-cost mobile spay neuter clinic hosted by the shelter each month. The PAL Mobile has spayed and neutered over 300 dogs and cats since they started coming to town a year ago. Let's hear it for the PAL Mobile and the 300 people who've had their pets fixed!

On a final note, most of the animals in the video are strays I've met in my travels on the country road. Every one of them is now in a happy home.

So, grab some popcorn, take a seat, and prepare yourself to be astounded by excellence in cinematography.

Shhh, it's starting (um, as soon as you click on the arrow).


And here I was expecting "It's raining squirrels"!

Well done, Peter Martz.

(I scoured the images for you, Liza, but only found you in one. At least I think it was you. Kneeling? Bottom right? Couple minutes in?)

I'll tell Peter about the squirrels omission - teehee. good catch finding me, I thought I was hidden well enough to go unnoticed!

BTW, that was my first attempt at assembling pics into a video using iMovie. What fun!
