Kathy wrote: a friend is active at an area shelter. Indie was returned twice not relating to him or his behavior. The second time he was returned, he would not eat and was losing his fur due to nerves. My friend asked if I would consider taking him and giving him a forever home. (They have me pegged down there. LOL!) I went to meet him and couldn't resist his big, beautiful blue eyes.

Indie was one of seven kitties adopted by Kathy Stepnick of Pittsburgh PA. When Kathy passed away April 2011, Indie & his older brother Kato came to live with Terri & Shadow through the love & efforts of many of the members of the CC Community.
Indie & Kato's other siblings are Ammie, Bennie, Gio, Angel Rusty and Angel Hanni

Hello K Indie & Mom Loretta
Well, it appears that our beloved Cat Channel will not be around much longer (http://www.catchannel.com/a-fond-farewell.aspx). Since we will be on vacation next week, we sadly decided to leave our last blog today. We joined CC in November 2006 when Casper Todd was only a few months old. He is now 10 years old. Where did the time go?

We have so many special memories of CC, the most important of which is the many furiends we have made during these almost 10 years. Way back in 2009 when Casper Todd was so very sick with Feline Demodicosis, the outpouring of love & support from our CC family overwhelmed us and helped Mommy cope during that horrible time. It’s that sense of community that we will miss the most, pulling together when one of our furiends is sick or has crossed the Bridge, and also celebrating the happy times.

The hardest part of any furiendship is when it's time to say goodbye. As much as we might like things to stay the same, change is an inevitable part of life. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. There are many tools available with which we can continue to communicate, but even without these tools there is a secret that only real furiends know, and it is this - All the mountains and valleys in the world cannot separate furiends whose hearts are as one.

Until we meet again on another site, remember that the best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way. Let’s not cry because CC is over, let’s smile because it happened. Bon voyage!!

Your Furever Furiends,
Q Sissy, K Casper Todd, Q Angel MerryBelle,& Mommy Angela

P.S.Right now we are not active on any other sites, but you do have our email so please stay in touch.

Hi K Indie & TISK
How was your weekend? We enjoyed a pawsome one, even though we did receive 6 more inches of rain (on top of the 12 inches we got last weekend). We had lots of scary thunderstorms too. Thankfully we are safe with no damage, but many here in south Mississippi are not so fortunate, as they are dealing with flooding. Please keep those people, pets & animals in your prayers.

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

Hi K Indie
Caturday is Love Your Pet Day, the OFFICIAL day for pampering us with extra love & affection. For most of us, this holiday seems a little unnecessary because we know that EVERY day is National Love Your Pet Day!! It certainly is at our house!

The bond between us & our pawrents is unlike anything else in life. We depend on them for everything, plus we give them so much in return: love, affection, and endless devotion. Caturday is a purrfect day to focus on this special relationship. Mommy plans to spoil us even more than usual Caturday just to show her appreciation to us. Oh goody! I hope we celebrate with lots of treats and pampering!! And mew toys and extra grooming too!

“I really love pets. They're like children. They know if you really love them or not. You can't fool them.” – Donna Douglas aka Ellie Mae Clampett

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

P.S. Have a wonderful weekend. We won’t be online tomorrow because Mommy has a doctor’s appointment. Chat with you on Monday. Enjoy Love Your Pet Day!

What’s mew with you? Today is a thunderstormy day here. Then it’s supposed to get very cold. We won’t be online tomorrow. Somebody at our house is celebrating a birthday tomorrow. In her honor, we hope you enjoy our little poem:

Goodness, it’s your birthday
Doesn’t time just fly?
Add one more candle to your cake

Tee hee! Have a pawsome weekend! Go Patriots! Go Jamie #91.

Hi K Indie
How was your weekend? We had a fun time, especially watching the NFL playoff games. Since our New Orleans Saints did not make the playoffs this season, we are cheering for the New England Patriots because #91 Jamie Collins is from here. Yep, we purrrsonally know an NFL player. And he is a very nice guy. Go Jamie! Win another Super Bowl ring!

Hope your Monday is meow-velous.

Hi K Indie
What are your plans for the weekend? We are forecast for thunderstorms tomorrow with gusty winds & hail, then much colder weather Sunday. So we plan to stay indoors where it’s warm and watch the NFL playoffs, even though our New Orleans Saints didn’t make the playoffs this season. Sunday will be purrrfect sleeping weather!

Enjoy your weekend. Chat with you Monday.

7 Ways to support an animal shelter at no cost !
1. Volunteer your time:.Animal shelters are often understaffed & can always use volunteers in various capacities. Just an hour or two of your time each week can really make a difference. “Whether you walk dogs at your shelter, stuff envelopes for an educational mailing or assist with a fundraising event, you can make a difference in the lives of animals,” says HSUS. To find out about volunteer opportunities, contact your local animal shelter.

2. Foster a pet: Pets have a much better chance of finding forever homes when they can be taken from scary shelters & placed in loving foster homes, where they learn basic obedience skills & good manners. When you foster a cat, dog or other pet, you will provide love, care & attention for a certain period of time or until the pet is adopted. You also open up a space in the shelter for another homeless pet, possibly saving a life. Sometimes the cost of food & veterinary care is covered by the shelter or a local rescue, or it may be tax deductible. Fostering “is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course),” according to Petfinder.com

3. Donate old towels, blankets, pet items & more: Along with towels, blankets, sheets & old newspapers, you can donate your pet’s gently used bed, bowls, toys & other items. Be sure to call the shelter first or check its website for a wish list to find out exactly what is needed.

4. Share photos of the shelter’s pets on social media: Use your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & other social media accounts to post photos & information about pets available for adoption from the shelter. Ask your friends and followers to share the photos so they’re seen by as many potential adopters as possible.

5. Make pet toys from scratch: Even if you’re not especially crafty, you can create toys for shelter dogs & cats from old sweatshirts & other materials you probably already have around your house. (Check ideas on Pinterest <https://www.pinterest.com/brumzoo/diy-pet-toys/>. )

6. Host a fundraiser: On behalf of your pet’s birthday or another special occasion, throw a party & ask your guests to bring cash donations – &/or pet food — for your local shelter. For your own birthday, you can launch an online crowdfunding campaign on a site like GoFundMe.com & ask for shelter donations instead of gifts.

7. Spread the word about the importance of S/N pets: Every year, millions of homeless cats & dogs are euthanized in shelters. This could easily be prevented if people would S/N their pets to prevent unwanted litters. Tell everyone you know to S/N their pets.

“Cats are 45 times as prolific, & dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans,” NSALA’s nationwide network & referral service for affordable S/N.
“They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.”
Thanks for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted.Kitty Kisses. King Dean

CAHW The Center for Animal Health and Welfare
Formed in 1913, CAHW, formerly the Northampton County SPCA, is a private organization. We are not affiliated with any other SPCA or ASPCA. We are not a government agency, but are a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status. In 2003 we committed ourselves to saving lives & became a no-kill shelter. We are dedicated to providing a safe & healthy environment for animals. We have improved our foster program, increased adoptions & offer a low-cost S/N program.
Fund raising, donations & bequests make up 90% of our income & we apply for many grants. Adoption fees, relinquishment fees, memberships & agreements with some of the local municipalities, to take in their strays, generate the rest of our revenue. Although we greatly appreciate the help from the municipalities that do support us, not all do. Northampton County contributes about $5,000.
We are responsible for a $900,000 operating budget annually. Our major costs are: Veterinary care, Medical supplies, Kennel supplies, S/N expenses, Insurance, Utilities, & Payroll.
Adoption: We make every effort to find loving homes for these scared & lonely pets. We do not set a fixed time limit on animals, but keep them for as long as they remain adoptable.
Lost & Found Services: Each year, hundreds of anxious owners visit our shelter, fill out reports, & are soon reunited with their lost pets.
Reducing the Tragic Overpopulation of Pets: The sad truth is that there are far more animals than there are loving homes for them. We conduct an ongoing campaign to encourage the neutering of all pets. With the cooperation of local veterinarians, we fund a low-cost pet S/N program.
Sadly, as a last resort, we do euthanize animals who are too sick or have aggression issues & cannot safely be placed in a home. We never euthanize an animal because of lack of space. We do not, under any circumstances, send any animal to laboratories for experimental use.
Humane Education: Through schools & community groups, we teach compassion & respect for all animals, as well as the responsibility of pet ownership, pet care, training, health & the importance of neutering.
This is the shelter where Mom adopted Angel Ricky & I on 1/30/05. Angel Ricky developed FIP and crossed five months later & Mom adopted Angel Anderson on 8/25/05. He crossed the RBB on 6/19/14. Legend was adopted 8/23/14. Mom has volunteered at the CAHW since 2005.
Thanks very much for your support. Voted. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

CHk The Cat House on the kings
CHK is CA's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary & adoption center. Our mission is to place rescued cats & kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a safe, happy & healthy home for unwanted cats & kittens in a unique, no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through S/N; & to educate the public about responsible pet ownership. CHK is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, receives no government or public funding, & relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its mission.
Founded 23 years ago by Lynea Lattanzio, CHK has saved over 24,000 cats & 7,000 dogs (not counting the 40,000 animals we have S/N) & currently cares for more than 700 cats & kittens, a dozen or so dogs & a handful of peacocks. Our mission is to: provide a no-cage, no-kill sanctuary for feral & abandoned cats & kittens for the CA, primarily serving the Central Valley; facilitate the adoption of cats (primarily), dogs & other rescued animals into safe, loving, healthy & permanent homes; educate the public on how to become directly involved in improving the quality of animal welfare; offer low cost S/N referrals. In 2002 CHK achieved non-profit status. In 2003, Lynea, with more volunteers & money, continued to expand CHK & added an area dedicated to the care of FIV+ cats. By 2004, CHK population had grown to over 500 cats & kittens.
CHK offers a variety of services:
Advice & Education: We offer assistance & education in behavioral problems with cats & assist people in finding new homes for their cats. We also advise thousands of people from around the world who contact us through our website & at our local, public events about all manner of cat issues.
Adoption Center: All of our cats are available for adoption. We do our utmost to find the best possible homes for our cats; none are euthanized except to relieve suffering. The cats live out their lives in our sanctuary until they are either adopted or die of old age — however long that may be. Every year, CHK adopts out approximately 500 cats ( & some dogs).
Sanctuary: We care for over 700 unwanted cats & kittens. Individuals surrender cats to us for a fee of $5000 per cat to provide lifetime support & care. Every cat is given necessary medical care, & is S/N & vaccinated. They are placed in cottages to become familiar with their surroundings. Once they're comfortable with their new digs, they are released onto the sanctuary grounds, & can roam about at will. The grounds are fully fenced & secure.
Low cost S/N: CHK works with local veterinary clinics to provide affordable rates for S/N surgery. We also provide transport between CHK & the surgery clinic.
GuideStar awards 5 of 5 stars, no results from Charity Navigator or BB Wise Giving. Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

SAINTS Senior Animals in Need Today Society
SAINTS was started in December 2004 after volunteers at other animal shelters saw many senior animals spending their last days in a shelter or pound. From the time we opened our doors, the number of animals in need has been astounding & ever-growing. When SAINTS moved into it’s first location it started with 16 cats, 12 dogs & 2 rabbits. SAINTS has since found it’s permanent home on 3 beautiful acres in Mission, BC with a warm & cozy home, a sturdy & well constructed barn, several outbuildings just waiting to be renovated for future use plus fields to play in & a pond to swim in… we have found a little bit of heaven on earth for our very special friends.
SAINTS has had over 765 animals come in through it’s doors. Over 280 have been adopted into wonderful loving homes. 320 have passed away in loving care at SAINTS & the remaining 112 still call SAINTS their home. We currently have 47 Saints in permanent foster homes. We are an end-of-life sanctuary for senior & special needs animals that have nowhere else to go. We provide a special place to be loved, cherished, & receive proper medical care for the rest of their days. All animals deserve to have hope for a better tomorrow. We pledge to love them, to care for them, & make their dreams come true. We promise each of them that they will never be alone again.
At various shelters throughout B.C., dedicated staff
& volunteers work tirelessly to find these special
animals a place to finish their journey in comfort &
in love. Because of their infirmities & physical challenges, many homeless senior & special needs animals have very little chance of finding a new home. SAINTS exists to help senior & special needs animals when all else fails. If we can, in time, find them a special home
of their own, then we do. If that very special home
never comes, they will be safe & cherished until the
end of their days.
Most of the animals that arrive at SAINTS are from
local animal shelters that didn’t have space for them
in their shelter as most SAINTS animals are seniors
or special needs & would have a hard time getting
adopted from a shelter. Other animals that come to
SAINTS are owner surrendered most often from senior
citizens who, due to health concerns, are no longer
able to care for their animals. Sometimes these animals
lose their homes when their senior caregiver passes away.
When an animal is brought to SAINTS it is assessed
as to the possibility of either adoption to a permanent
home, remaining a lifelong sanctuary animals or supportive care in a permanent foster home. This is determined by their level of care required, any existing health conditions or any that develop while in care.
All of our funding is raised through volunteer-driven
fundraising events or through private donations from
our supporters. No report from any of the charity watchdog groups. Thanks for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

LNPB Leave No Paws Behind
LNPB is a 501 (c) 3 non profit corporation
governed by the laws of the State of CA. We are an all breed, all foster based rescue, specializing in seniors, terminal & end of life animals, & pets with special needs. When possible we step up, most times in the “11th” hour when all hope is gone, to help save the
lives of those that are in most danger of being left behind to die on a cold shelter floor.
LNPB provides hospice care, comfort, love & a safe haven for the terminally ill & the hard core cases & LNPB will never board a rescued animal. Upon rescue, we immediately have all of our rescues vetted, & LNPB never determines the outcome or diagnosis, & rely on the expertise of our skilled & excellent team of DVM’s. Those with minor, treatable medical needs & disabilities per diagnosis from the Doctor’s are placed in the loving care of fosters until they are adopted. LNPB’s more serious medically challenged rescues, such as seniors who may suffer with terminal &/or severe mobility medical conditions as diagnosed by the Doctor’s, are
placed in loving hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed.
From time to time, & when deemed necessary by our Doctor’s diagnosis, we have the sad task of helping our beloved animals cross the rainbow bridge.We are with them, holding & loving them until they peacefully
pass quietly in our arms. We do not hesitate to pull the terminally ill or the ones the shelter will inevitably PTS due to sickness & inability to walk as we cannot bear having them die alone, frightened & sadly wondering. We are doing for our four legged friends what they cannot do for themselves because their life matters. We are their voice & we will continue saving lives one paw a time as we make every effort to assure we Leave No Paws Behind. LNPB relies solely on public donations, no amount is to small & all amounts benefit the health & well fare of abused & abandoned animals & are tax deductible.

GuideStar gives LNPB 5 out of 5 stars, other charity groups did not evaluate.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Peace & love. King Dean

ARF saves dogs & cats who have run out of time at public shelters & brings people & animals together to enrich each others lives. ARF strives to create a world where every loving dog & cat has a home, where every lonely person has a companion animal, & where children learn to care. ARF is a national leader in the animal welfare industry co-founded by Elaine & Tony La Russa in 1991. The nonprofit receives no government funding. ARF’s core mission is the rescue of dogs & cats who have run out of time at public shelters, giving them a chance at life until a new home can be found. ARF couples this focus with innovative programs strengthening the human-animal bond for children, seniors, veterans, & people in disadvantaged circumstances. Through ARF, people
experience the unconditional love & acceptance of dogs & cats to fulfill a mission of “People Rescuing Animals…Animals Rescuing People…”
The catalyst for ARF came when a stray tortoiseshell cat looking for food took a wrong turn & suddenly found herself on a baseball field in the Oakland Coliseum. The frantic cat dashed around the field, panicked & unable to find a way out, she slinked towards the infield, exhausted from her ordeal. Tony La Russa, manager for the Oakland Athletics, coaxed her into the dugout where she spend the rest of the game in safe confines. Sadly there was not a single no-kill shelter in the SF Bay Area & the little cat would likely be euthanized. The La Russas finally placed “Evie” in a permanent, loving home where she could live out her natural life. The experience caused Elaine & Tony to take action. Less than a year later,they co-founded ARF with the goal of rescuing dogs & cats before they ran out of time at high-kill shelters. With a small team of driven volunteers, ARF worked saved the lives of more than 100 dogs & cats its first year. ARF realized rescuing animals was as important as the remarkable role they play in the lives of people. ARF's dual mission of "People Rescuing Animals...Animals Rescuing People" was born. Early humane education programs began in 1993, ingraining an early love of animals in school-aged children. Two years later, a therapy animal team & other programs introduced the unconditional love & acceptance of animals to seniors, veterans, at-risk youth, & more people in need. Programs to help low-income pet guardians keep their beloved pets in homes & out of shelters soon followed.
Today, ARF is renowned as a local leader & national model in the animal welfare community. Since its inception, ARF has re-homed more than 30,000 dogs & cats saved from public animal shelters, performed more than 28,000 S/N surgeries to combat pet overpopulation, & is home to an array of innovative outreach & education programs bringing people & animals together to enrich each other's lives.
Charity Navigator gives 4 stars, GuideStar awards 5 stars,& BB Wise Giving says ARF meets the 20 Standards of Accountability. King Dean

Hey Indie!
Yeah too early for Santa to be up on the roof! MOL. A part of one of Mom's teeth fell out yesterday. She was lucky to get in to see the dentist first thing today. Turns out she had a abscess and the dentist did a root canal. He was working in her mouth a long time. It didn't really hurt much before she saw the dentist but now that the novacaine has worn off it is hurting more. Poor Mom, better her than me! MOL! Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

PEF The Pets for the Elderly Foundation
PEF began in Cleveland in 1992, & expanded nationally in 2001 with a goal of saving as many companion animals as possible from euthanasia. We have a small staff, & all administrative costs are paid by the founder's related foundation. Currently there are 48 participating shelters in 27 states. More shelters are added as funding becomes available. Our goal is to save the lives of 6,000 companion pets annually, while enhancing the lives of an equal number of senior citizens.

PEF is a 501 (c)(3) public charity whose mission is to provide companionship to senior individuals through pet ownership, while saving the lives of companion animals in shelters; animals which might otherwise be destroyed due to lack of appropriate homes, & space limitations. PEF began with two shelters near Cleveland, Ohio. Since then, PEF has seen great success & has grown to a nationwide program. PEF branched out nationally in 2002, & has helped successfully place nearly 57,000 companion animals with senior adopters. PEF helps pay the fees to participating animal shelters throughout the US for senior citizens (age 60 & over) who adopt a companion dog or cat from a participating shelter - including pre-adoption veterinary exams & S/N, if part of the adoption fee. Research shows the most serious disease for older persons is not cancer or heart disease - it's loneliness. Pets offer affection, unconditional love, fight loneliness, & can help ease the loss of a loved one.

PEF provides financial support for the adoption of companion pets, cats & dogs only.
It does not accept unwanted dogs & cats. We are strictly financial support for adoption programs with participating shelters. One can not adopt a dog or cat directly through PEF. We are strictly financial support for adoption programs with participating shelters. We do not have the facilities to house adoptable animals, nor do we match pets & adopters. We are a small business office only, & do not have space for volunteers.

The fee for adopting a pet through a PEF shelter will vary depending upon location. PEF underwrites a portion of the adoption cost for dogs & cats at participating shelters. Because our program is located in 58 shelters in 30 different states, adoption fees & policies can vary widely. The Foundation business office is just outside Phoenix, AZ. We do not have branch offices, but our participating shelters are in 30 different states.

GuideStar, Charity Navigator & BBB Wise Giving all have no review for this group.

NKAC No Kill Advocacy Center
NKAC, founded in 2004 by Nathan Winograd, was the nation’s first & at the time, only full-service No Kill
community, saving not only dogs & cats, all community cats, & rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, horses, & others. In 2005, NKAC held its first No Kill conference,with less than two dozen people attending. In 2013, hundreds of cities & towns across America have save rates better than 90% & as high as 99% using our No Kill Equation model of sheltering. In 2005, we talked about the goal of saving at least 90%. In 2012, we weren’t satisfied with 98% as we explored what’s possible when we reach higher.
The NKAC’s influence is not only increasing,
it is widening. Almost half of all attendees at the No Kill Conference(46%) came from shelters, including many municipal facilities subject to public acrimony over high rates of killing. They are increasingly looking
to the NKAC, & not traditional national organizations,
because while we offer condemnation when it is deserved, we also offer solutions & assistance. If shelters want to save lives, they do not want antiquated dogmas which represent the past. That can only mean good things as we collectively move toward our inevitable No Kill future.
Nathan J. Winograd is the Director of the national NKAC. He has spoken nationally & internationally on animal sheltering issues, has written animal protection legislation at the state & national level, has created successful No Kill programs in both urban & rural communities,and has written five books on the No Kill Equation.
There are communities in the US that have eliminated population control killing. We want, & the animals deserve, No Kill in every city in the country. But it requires shelter leaders committed to these goals & embarking on a campaign of diligent implementation. That is where we must focus our efforts at reform. Only the No Kill Equation model has achieved this success. It is a program model which changes the way shelters operate & which gives the animal loving public an integral role in that operation. If a community wants success, this is how to go: nothing else has succeeded.
No Kill shelters can be public or private, large or small, humane societies or municipal agencies. About 9,000,000 people now live in communities saving 90% or more of dogs & cats in their shelters. Over 35,000,000 live in communities saving 80% or more of dogs and cats. The numbers continue to grow.
None of the 4 charity watchdog groups have evaluated NKAC. However, the concept fortunately has spread & saved millions of lives & will continue to do so.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & Love. King Dean

PFV Pets for Vets: Healing Vets & Saving Pets
PFV believes our country owes military veterans a debt of gratitude. Our soldiers have been brave but many of them have returned with physical & emotional injuries that have made it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Some estimates state that as many as 20% of returning military veterans suffer from PTSD.
Needy shelter dogs receive a second chance at life while giving our returning soldiers a second chance at health & happiness. The bonds of friendship formed between man & animal have the power to ease the
suffering of our troops when they return from overseas. PFV is a concrete way to thank U.S. Military Veterans for their service.
Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law With each veteran-pet match we provide the necessary equipment for them to start their new life together.Veterans in our chapter areas who could benefit from having a companion animal & who are also able to care for an animal are eligible to receive a PFV companion animal.

The PFV program is dedicated to supporting veterans & providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training & pairing them with America’s veterans who could benefit from a companion animal. The Pets… 3 to 4 million dogs & cats are euthanized each year. These
animals can make excellent companion animals but never have that chance. Our dedicated animal trainers will evaluate & rescue the shelter animals & provide additional training to ensure that they are able to assimilate into a home, which is quite different from a shelter environment. The Vets… Sadly, there are alarming statistics of suicide, family abuse & PTSD facing veterans returning to civilian life after military duty. This can cause a downward spiral of apathy,unemployment, broken relationships, addiction & depression. It is our
belief that companion animals can be the life saving therapy or friend that many returning service men & women need.
Medical studies have shown that companion animals significantly improve mental & physical health, including reducing stress, depression &anxiety,symptoms experienced by many serving in the military.
The PFV team interviews each veteran to ascertain what he or she is looking for in a companion animal; we pair this with his or her personality & lifestyle to make the perfect veteran-pet match. Once the perfect pet is selected for the veteran, the pet spends time in the home of one of our trainers who teaches the pet basic obedience & other valuable behaviors needed to live with his/her new owner. This can include becoming comfortable with wheel chairs or behaviors needed to help with
PTSD & Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Check out the website for PFV apparel. GuideStar gives 5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for your support. Prayers 4 those in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses.

PCRM Physicians Committee 4 Responsible Medicine
PCRM is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., which promotes a vegan diet, preventive medicine, alternatives to animal research, & encourages what it describes as "higher standards of ethics & effectiveness in research." Its primary activities include outreach & education about nutrition & compassionate choices to healthcare professionals & the public; ending the use of animals in medical school curricula; & advocating for legislative changes on the local & national levels.

PCRM is leading a revolution in medicine—putting a new focus on health & compassion. PCRM combines the clout & expertise of more than 12,000 physicians with the dedicated actions of 150,000 members across the US & around the world. Our efforts are dramatically changing the way doctors treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, & cancer. By putting prevention over pills, doctors are empowering their patients to take control of their own health. PCRM is also building a new way of viewing research. Since 1985, PCRM has been working tirelessly for alternatives to the use of animals in medical education & research & advocating for more effective scientific methods. Their staff of physicians, dietitians, & scientists is working with policymakers, industry, the medical community, the media, & the public to create a better future for people & animals.
Priorities include:
Shifting research from animal “models” to human-relevant studies, Bringing nutrition into medical education & practice, Conducting clinical research on healthful diets that builds the foundation for the role of nutrition in medicine, Educating & empowering people to take control of their health through Kickstart, Food for Life, & other nutrition programs, & Working with policymakers & industry to adopt alternatives to chemical tests on animals.

PCRM is Shifting Away from Animal-Derived Antibodies in Medical Research. Antibody production is a massive industry as antibodies serve as fundamental tools in biomedical research. The vast majority of research antibodies are produced by live animals using procedures that are extremely painful & ultimately lethal. PCRM scientists are working to prove that antibodies can be made without harming animals. Our goal is to demonstrate the viability of fully in vitro antibodies, promote their acceptance by researchers, & force a change in the funding requirements of the National Institutes of Health.
GuideStar awards PCRM 4 out of 5 stars, Charity Navigator award 3 out of 4 stars.

Monday Nov. 2nd. Day 2 on The Catpaign Trail
I have a brother Zachary Pierre, He is blue and I am a black Persian. Most of you remember the sibling rivalry, We always competed for Cat Of The Day on our birthday. We will be 9 years old this month. When Mom lost her black girl Sadie Lady, she started searching for me, when she came to visit me Zachary P was head bonking and flirting with Mom and Dad. I was MAD! I thought they came to pick me. Mom fell in love with both of us and took us home. I have often heard Mom say that Zachary P. should have been the female and I the male. I would not let anyone pet my beautiful fur when younger, I would sit on Mom's lap but just as soon as she messed up my hair I would run away. I still run away from the camera. I do like being petted more as I get older but Zachary P. stays on Mom's lap. I am the only one left on CC now, Mom deleted all the other profiles when CC. was closing the first time. Since Zachary P. is not here I will tell you a secret. I really do adore him, he is such a wuss and when he bugs me I just give him that look and off he goes. His pic is on bottom of my page.

Thank you to all my friends for your support
Thank you all so very much for your support throughout October. So many of you stopped to vote daily & complimented me on all my blogs. I am so pleased they were enjoyed & so many learned important information from them. I am especially thrilled that I was able to inform so many kitties of several ways to help shelter pets without spending a penny. Several clicks every day from so many friends here can really make a difference.
I want to thank Legend for all his hard work researching the animal groups & charity watchdog groups & the sites that support animals. Mom enjoyed helping with my catpaign too. Basically I mostly covered groups helping cats & dogs but several help other animals too. I know many of you also support & donate to your local shelter which is wonderful. In addition to funds, shelters appreciate used bedding; sheets, blankets, comforters, pillow cases & towels. They can always use paper towels, bleach, cleaning products & office supplies. They are happy for gently used cat & dog toys & unused medications & medical supplies. They can use cards, stamps & also many hold flea markets or yard sales & can use second hand items to sell. There are so many unwanted animals in the shelters who are not as lucky as us to have loving families. We need to encourage TNR & S/N among our friends & communities. I hope I have given you all the tools to use daily so we can continue to help those unwanted animals.
I am very honored to be crowned the November King of CC. There were times when Mom & I thought I might not make it, as CC was not very cooperative. I am proud to join the wonderful group of Royals crowned before me. Many thanks to all my fantastic friends.
It does seem as though I have reached lots of kitties with my blogs & several are making the effort to click on sites that will help. This means so much to me. I am thrilled that I have been able to help cause a contributing influence that will have the end result of helping shelter pets. This was my dream & it seems as though I have achieved this. I knew all our wonderful friends would agree with me & make the effort to help less fortunate cats & dogs. Prayers 4 all. Voted. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

SPCAI SPCA International
SPCAI goal: Advance the Safety & Well-Being of Animals

Operation Military Pets: We've helped over 100 military families' pets since 2013. When military families are ordered to a new base in the U.S. or around the world, moving bills pile up. The military pays for many moving costs, but they do not help relocate their beloved pets. The cost for pet transportation can be hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Military families are being torn
apart due to financial strain. All over the US, animal shelters near military bases report high surrender rates when military families cannot afford to relocate their dogs or cats. To help keep military families together & animals out of shelters, Operation Military Pets provide
financial assistance to military families for pet relocation costs.

Shelter Grant Program: We've helped hundreds of animal shelters since 2007. We give direct support by awarding Shelter Grants to many animal organizations in need of
assistance throughout the U.S. & all over the world. These much needed funds go toward helping animal shelters improve their facility, as well as supporting S/N programs & ultimately reducing euthanasia rates.
SPCAI distributes Emergency Grants to shelters when they need it the most, in urgent crisis situations.

Global Animal Veterinary Assistance: We've provided many millions in supplies since 2009. Each year SPCAI
distributes critical veterinary medical supplies to animal shelters throughout the world. As a result, organizations in developing countries have been able to treat more sick & injured animals. These donations along with financial grants have allowed organizations to provide successful S/N events throughout the year. We have distributed millions of dollars in veterinary medical supplies to shelters on almost every continent.

Operation Baghdad Pups: We've helped over 500 U.S. service members' animals since 2008. US troops deployed around the world befriend local animals as a way to cope with the emotional hardships they endure every day far from home & loved ones. These animals, often called military mascots or patriot pets, not only help our heroes while stationed overseas, but also help them readjust to life when they return home. This highly successful & celebrated program has been reuniting U.S. service members with their companions. Operation Baghdad Pups provides veterinary care & coordinates complicated logistics & transportation requirements in order to reunite these beloved pets with their service men & women back in the U.S.

The Pedigree Certificate of Recognition: In 2009, Mary Tyler Moore & Bernadette Peters from Broadway Barks
presented SPCAI with the Pedigree Certificate of Recognition honoring the success of our popular program "Operation Baghdad Pups".

GuideStar awards SPCAI 4 out of 5 stars, Charity Navigator gives donor advisory and BBB Wise Giving has no report.

BCR Blind Cat Rescue
BCR was started in 2005 to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed not adoptable by regular shelters. They were going to be killed just because they are blind. In 2011 a building was erected to provide a safe sanctuary for FELV+ & FIV+ cats. BCR accepts an animal into the sanctuary IF they have space available. Blind cats must be certified by a vet as blind. Cats with 20% or less sight are accepted as blind. All cats must be fixed. FELV+ cats must be verified by an IFA test. FIV+ cats must be verified by the Western Blot test. BCR will NOT accept a cat as positive based upon the snap test.

Blind cats do not know they are blind, they know they are cats. They act like cats. Blind cats can do pretty much everything that a seeing cat can do. They can climb trees, climb up on to the top of cabinets & get into places that you can't figure out how they did it. To make it easier on your blind cat try to stay some what consistent on the important things, like the litter box & food bowls. For the rest of the house, live normal; they will go around things. If you watch a blind cat, you will see that they point their whiskers out so the whiskers will brush against something typically before they hit it. You CAN move your furniture. They will quickly readjust to the change. If you pick up a blind cat & move him/her from point A to point B, try to put them down where they have a good idea of where they are: in the litter box, at their food bowl or where floors have different textures. A cat can become blind from many things.

If your cat has suddenly over night become blind, RUSH the cat to the vet! Insist on them checking the cat’s blood pressure (That is not something done automatically at most vets) IF the blindness is from hypertension & caught fast enough, it may reverse with medicine. They can also become blind from diabetes, hyperthyroid, upper respiratory infections, & from not being wormed. Worms will migrate around the cat’s body, including up behind the eyes where they destroy the optic nerves, & thus the animal becomes blind. If your cat is sneezing, coughing & eyes are gooey, get to the vet! If your cat is eating like crazy & losing weight or drinking water like there is no tomorrow RUN to the vet!
BCR is a registered non-profit 501©3 in the state of NC. GuideStar gives BCR 5 out of 5 stars as does Great Nonprofits. Not rated by Charity Navigator.

DDAL Doris Day Animal League
DDAL is a national nonprofit citizen’s lobbying organization dedicated to protecting animals through policy initiatives, education, & corporate engagement. DDAL was founded in 1987 by legendary actress & devoted animal advocate Doris Day. DDAL was formed to help influence U.S. Congress, government agencies, & state & local officials to pass new laws & enforce existing laws that reduce the suffering of animals anywhere they are mistreated. Through dedication & tireless efforts, DDAL has won many victories over the years. Even when faced with well-funded industry opposition, we continued to fight to protect innocent animals from the agony forced on them through neglect, ignorance, & greed. Some of DDAL's victories:
In the 1990s DDAL helped CA lawmakers realize common industry chemical tests on animals were inhumane, inconclusive & unnecessary. DDAL was able to end animal torture & protect untold animals from these practices. In 2013, the U.S. Dept of Agriculture announced breeders selling puppies & kittens directly to the public via Internet, mail or phone would be subject to the same licensing & inspection regulations as those selling to brokers or pet stores. DDAL is continually improving the lives of animals & helping to end the despicable & inhumane treatment of animals that still exists across America today.
URGE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TO SUPPORT THE HUMANE COSMETICS ACT: Help spare the lives of innocent animals by urging your representative to co-sponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act. This act will replace outmoded & painful testing of cosmetic, household & industrial products by providing funding for review & approval of newer & more humane practices.
URGE CONGRESS TO MAKE IT A FEDERAL CRIME TO ABUSE & TORTURE ANIMALS: Finally federal animal cruelty legislation has been introduced in Congress. The Prevent Animal Cruelty &Torture Act (PACT) would empower the FBI & U.S. Attorneys to prosecute animal abuse cases across state lines. This act will close important loopholes & allow prosecution of the most heinous crimes against innocent animals.
EUTHANASIA DOESN’T HAVE TO BE CRUEL: Most shelters struggle with a surplus of homeless animals, a shortage of loving homes, & a severe lack of funding. This mix forces them to turn to euthanasia as the unfortunate outcome to these overwhelming factors. DDAL always supports programs & policies designed to end euthanasia completely, while also strongly supporting the principle when it must be performed, it must be done humanely. DDAL is working to end the practice of euthanizing animals with carbon monoxide & carbon dioxide gas chambers. 23 states have banned gas chambers, but many state’s shelters continue this unnecessary practice for no legitimate reason.
DDAL is not eligible to be rated by Charity Navigator as it does not meet required tax status of a 501(c) (3) public charity,this does not indicate a positive or negative assessment.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all. Dean

www.goodsearch.com
Good search is an excellent search engine, the only one my Mom ever uses.
Works like goggle, yahoo etc but you pick your charity & every time you search the internet,
1 penny goes to your charity! Mom has been using it for years & has raised $77.30 for our shelter
Other benefits to help your charity are buying items thru Goodshop.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Goodshop is connected with over 114,000 nonprofits & schools, which means that you can shop for your cause no matter the scale: whether it be your local animal shelter, or a national cancer research organization. If, by chance, your nonprofit or school isn't listed, it is pretty easy to add them to the list!
Over the past 9 years, we've helped organizations do everything from medical research, to buying books for local libraries, to helping clean up pollution from city rivers. This has only been made possible by you, & the nearly $12 million dollars that you have helped us raise.

If you already know the cause that you would like your online shopping to support, then head on over to our pick a cause page & make your selection. If not, we have a collection of 60 featured causes for you to look through & read about, in order to help you make your choice. You can change your cause at any point. We provide contact information for all the organizations we've partnered with, in case you want to do a little more research before making any commitments. Once you've signed up for a nonprofit & chosen the stores you love to shop at, the rest is history. Sit back, relax, and, of course, shop. And remember, the more friends that you get involved, the more you'll be able to raise for your cause!

Imagine a world in which every shopper was a Goodshopper
In the U.S. alone, Americans spend $300 billion in e-commerce per year. If even 3% of that revenue was funneled into the nonprofit sector, it would mean a bonus of $90,000,000 every single year - important money needed for these great organizations to be able to continue doing the work we all need them to do. Goodshop started as a crazy idea between two siblings & has grown into a global movement. We're excited to see how quickly it has picked up speed, & how many people are joyfully hopping on board, in order to help make the world a better place with each purchase.

DELTA Dedicated & Everlasting Love to Animals
DELTA Rescue is the largest “No Kill, Care-for-Life,” Animal Sanctuary of its kind in the world. Founded by Leo Grillo in 1979, DELTA Rescue incorporated as a non-profit animal rescue organization in 1981 & that same
year became a tax-exempt 501 [c] 3 organization. The DELTA Rescue Super Sanctuary is home to more than 1500 animals that have all been abandoned in the wilderness. Located in the high desert area of LA, this 115-acre mountain top ranch is surrounded by rolling hills & is beautifully landscaped. It is truly a haven for the animals lucky enough to have crossed paths with its
founder.

The dog & cat residents of the Super Sanctuary, were all personally rescued in the wild by Leo Grillo, founder & president of DELTA Rescue. Abandoned, sick & slowly starving, they were days away from certain death. But at the Super Sanctuary, it is the joy of a rich & happy new life that greets the rescued animals. . . days filled with good food, playtime and the knowledge that they are not only safe but greatly loved.

Featuring individualized areas for dogs & cats, the Super Sanctuary is always a work in progress, constantly growing to compete with the increasing animal abandonment population. A full-time construction crew is
on staff to continually build, expand, repair & fence as more & more rescued animals are brought into the facility.

More than 800 dogs of all breeds, shapes & sizes live in huge yards that feature straw bale houses & a wading pool for those hot summer months. The insulating quality of the straw bale houses keep the dogs cozy warm in the winter & nice and cool in the summer.

The cats at DELTA live in houses with indoor/outdoor play areas. While outdoors they travel from perched “condo” to perched “condo” on a series of suspended walkways, able to enjoy the fresh air & sunshine
without the threat of predators.

DELTA has two veterinary hospitals & a full time veterinary staff on the premises. They have state of the art equipment & are able to give the finest care possible to all the residents of the SuperSanctuary.

“Animals are people to me” says founder, Leo Grillo. “And as such, we will not condone the disposing of pets any more than the disposing of children.” DELTA Rescue is the only organization that absolutely refuses to accept animals from the public when they want to give them up. Instead, DELTA Rescue became the first no-kill, care-for-life organization in the world, & rescues only animals that are abandoned in the wilderness.

Being the first care-for-life facility, DELTA Rescue does not adopt out its rescued animals to the public. “I’d rather not be a hero, adopting out our animals & STEALING homes away from animals in the pound –
wonderful animals who will be killed only because they can’t find new homes”, says Leo Grillo.
Charity Navigator gives DELTA 1 star but Charity Watch gives it A-

PETA People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members & supporters. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most
intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, & in the entertainment industry. PETA works on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, & other “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, & protest campaigns. Before PETA existed, there were two important things you could do to help animals. Volunteer at a local animal shelter, or donate money to a humane society. While many of these organizations did useful work to bring comfort to animals who are used by humans, they didn’t question why we kill animals for their flesh or their skins or why we use them for tests of new product ingredients or for our entertainment.

PETA’s founders sought to give caring people something more that they could do & to provide them ways to actively change society. They wanted to promote a healthy vegan diet & show how easy it is to shop cruelty-free. They wanted to protest, loudly & publicly, against cruelty to animals in all its forms, & they wanted to expose what really went on behind the
very thick, soundproof walls of animal laboratories.

Aided by thorough investigative work, consumer protests, & international media coverage, PETA brings together members of the scientific, corporate, & legislative communities to achieve large-scale, long-term changes that improve animals’ quality of life & prevent their deaths.

Thanks to PETA’s lengthy campaign to push PETCO to take more responsibility for the animals in its stores, the company agreed to stop selling large birds & to make provisions for the millions of rats & mice in its care.
PETA has made groundbreaking advances for animals who are abused by corporations, governments, & individuals throughout the world, & these successes have led to dramatic improvements in the lives of millions of
individual animals.

Whether by working with universities & government institutions to implement non-animal test methods, sparking a boom of “cruelty-free” product marketing a nosedive for the U.S. fur industry, or promoting the mass availability of meat alternatives at grocery stores & gourmet restaurants, PETA has been the driving force behind many of the largest successes for animals in the last 25 years.
Charity Navigator gives PETA 2 out of 4 stars, GuideStar gives 3 out of 5 stars and BBB has no report on PETA.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. Dean

BBBWGA Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance
The BBB Wise Giving Alliance helps donors make informed giving decisions & promotes high standards of conduct among organizations that solicit contributions from the public. It produces reports about national charities, evaluating them against comprehensive Standards for Charity Accountability, & publishes a magazine, the Wise Giving Guide, 3 times a year.
BBB WGA does not rank charities but rather seeks to assist donors in making informed judgments about those that solicit their support. Evaluations are done without charge to the charity & are posted for free public access on give.org.
BBB WGA reports on nationally soliciting charities that the public has most often asked about as well as charities that request to be evaluated. Give.org reports on about 1,300 nationally soliciting charities. In addition, about half of the 112 Better Business Bureaus in the US & Canada cumulatively produce reports on over 10,000 locally soliciting charities using the same BBB Charity Standards as BBB WGA.
National charities that are found to meet all BBB Charity Standards have the option of signing a license & paying a fee for the use of a BBB Accredited Charity Seal that can be displayed on their websites and in their fund raising materials.
BBB WGA lists 20 standards of asccountability.
GOVERNANCE AND OVERSIGHT ( 1-5)
The governing board has the ultimate oversight authority for any charitable organization. This section of the standard seeks to ensure that the volunteer board is active, independent and free of self-dealing.

MEASURING EFFECTIVENESS (6 & 7)
An organization should regularly assess its effectiveness in achieving its mission. This section seeks to ensure that an organization has defined, measurable goals & objectives in place & a defined process in place to evaluate the success & impact of its program(s) in fulfilling the goals & objectives of the organization and that also identifies ways to address any deficiencies.

FINANCES (8-14)
This section of the standards seeks to ensure that the charity spends its funds honestly, prudently & in accordance with statements made in fund raising appeals.

FUND RAISING & INFORMATIONAL MATERIALS (15-20)
A fund raising appeal is often the only contact a donor has with a charity & may be the sole impetus for giving. This section of the standards seeks to ensure that a charity's representations to the public are accurate, complete & respectful.

NSALA North Shore Animal League America
NSALA is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue & adoption organization. Our Vision: To put an end to animal cruelty & euthanasia & to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate, permanent homes.
Our Values:1) Preserve & enhance the lives of shelter pets through rescue efforts that remove them from harm’s way. 2) Advance the highest standards in animal welfare to create a more humane world for companion animals. 3) Sustain our no-kill policy, working tirelessly to nurture & heal the physical & emotional wounds of animals in our care, to restore the high quality of life & dignity that they deserve. 4) Speak for rescue animals to elevate their status, increase acceptance, & reduce euthanasia. 5) Inspire the next generation to be more compassionate & to understand that adopting a shelter pet is the right choice. 6)Organize, inspire, & lead a global network or partners that share common goals & continue to provide them with resources & innovative techniques to save lives. 7) Nurture relationships that bond people with shelter pets
NSALA began shelter advertising 2 decades ago, encouraging adopting pets from a shelter close to home, instead of buying a pet from a pet store. The idea worked so well NSALA quickly developed a major grant program enabling other shelter & rescue groups to learn the effectiveness of adoption advertising. Today, shelters across the world use advertising to remind people that every type of pet is available at a shelter & adopting from a shelter is a responsible choice.
To generate added awareness to the plight of shelter animals,NSALA launched Pet Adoptathon. Today, over 2,000 shelters in the US, & in 26 other countries, join us for Pet Adoptathon with one common goal – to join forces & adopt over 20,000 animals into permanent homes over a single weekend. NSALA uses Mobile Adoption Units to bring dogs & cats out of the shelter & into high-traffic areas. These mobile adoption events save thousands of animals each year. NSALA sponsors Adopt-A-Pet.com, which enables over 8,000 shelters & rescue groups across the U.S. to post animals that are available for adoption. Adopt-A-Pet.com has linked millions of potential adopters with local shelters & their pets, facilitating a huge number of adoptions each year.
SPAY/USA,a national S/N referral program, provides public education about benefits of S/N & is the nation’s largest network for affordable S/N services. NSALA helps end the suffering of innocent dogs & cats by reducing the number of unwanted births. Within the past 12 months, SPAY/USA has provided over 50,000 S/N referrals, estimated to reduce pet overpopulation significantly.
Charity Navigator gives NSALA 2 out of 4 stars, GuideStar gives it 2 out of 5 stars, NSALA has declined to be evaluated by BBB Wise Giving. Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. Dean
