Peaslee’s Child Development Center educates 47 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years from low-income families, preparing them for kindergarten with literacy training, art and music classes, and a gardening space. The Child Development Center's naptime infant room is currently equipped with drop-side cribs, so the organization would like to replace the unsafe cribs with five new cribs that meet newly released safety standards.
Charles Behlow Professional Photography offers professional photography, video, and digital services for any occasion. To produce the photo-to-print miracle, a client sends in or uploads a picture, at which point a trained and certifiably tortured artist digitally modifies the image, renders it on fine-art-quality paper, and accents it with watercolors and oil paints according to the client's requests. The treatment adds an emotive touch to familiar people and places, making it an ideal way to preserve glowing memories and add realistic moustaches to your relatives. The studio can work from prints, digital photos, negatives, or slides, and the finished 11"x14" print is placed in a 16"x20” matte.

Dogs rarely get lonesome at Dogtown Cincinnati. That's because they'll be spending too much time playing with the other dogs and the staff. Whether inside or outside, pups have ample space to run, jump, and play statue, and even overnight, it's like a big slumber party, where everyone bunks down together and they're under the watchful eye of the faithful human crew. Owners can also schedule grooming appointments or training sessions, while cats stay for the day or overnight in their own private area.
