How We Met

I live in Mattapoisett, MA. My first momma lived in the same apartment building as my current momma does but she had to move and couldn't take me. So, she asked my "new" momma if she'd take care of me. As my "new" momma comes from a cat loving family she was more than willing to do so. Eventually my first momma knew she couldn't take me back so made arrangements for my momma to adopt me forever. I love my New momma forever and she loves me!

how about coming here
for the white stuff? we have 1-3" moving in from the east-south east with nor'easter #1 blowing through this morning starting as rain to heavy wet slop, then highs after it goes through 40s this weekend. nor'easter #2 coming in on tuesday with much the samething, only temps will be colder 30s all next week and another right now 1-3" due with that storm too. then we saw on valentine's day more coming in as well. did say that february would be a bad month and we think janet's right feb/mar usually give us all the white stuff most of the winter and now we're starting to get caught up, but will be melting after this one. angels,ab,haley

it's so good hearing
from you all again as we know you're in mourning like we are still here, but mommy really hasn't cried all that much but is missing master and asking questions, but does that for nat in-stead and she just got a new tablet so nat's teaching her how to do things on there and she won't have access to the internet other than playing games or looking at sites and that's it, but more than enough for her. she's got a skin dr's appt. today for a rash on her back which keeps coming back and some moles, that's after errands right after janet is out of work. her hours were cut, but restored just through saturday, then the tussle of fighting to get them back each week ensues with dept. manager/store manager who is a stingy codder for sure! so happy we got rid of those piles of sleet from late december finally! :) you know we're so loving this winter and all the rain we've been getting sure beats the white stuff/fro zen crap too, but we might be getting that mon/tues next week don't know if the storm will go south and out to sea or giving us a little of it as we also have an outside chance at a dust-ing to 1" tomorrow with another nor'easter coming up and then the one for mon/tues which we are hoping goes out to sea as we'll be only 30s for highs next week and 20s by the weekend so here comes the winter chill again! :( angels,ab,haley

it's so good to see/hear
you again and yes, sandy and her sisters/brother are certainly a force at the rb to bargain with especially all those who are com ing in and well they are a team for the games to reckon with as well and win many a game or tourament. but never mind things are slowly falling into place and more information has to be given for other things, so hopefully by april we'll have some $$$ flowing in so things will ease up off of janet as she's been footing the grocery bill and the $$$ she's tried to save for her new front brakes/calipers is slowly hitting the dust. she's told mommy that we have to start cutting back on what we get, but is open to fresh fruit and veggies when need-ed and says the frozen stuff she's the culprit there, and will have to stop buying frozen dinners when they are on sale even though she loves some of them! looks like so far our winter is really nice, but still the worst two months to come precipat-ion wise and likely we will get a "big" one as we're calling it and aren't saying more. janet still misses sandy terribly and they have looked up a few sites to see about getting an-other kitty, but they just want way to much $$$ and it all add's up and won't be there for things which we need now or will be needing, so once the time comes likely it's a shelter in leverett to the north of here where janet got fanny briefly for a month before she got returned due to fanny not liking anybody or the house. angels,ab,haley

Sad welcome to Sophie
We were so very stunned and sorry to see you coming over the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday! I know how confusing it all seems at once. Well, you’re healthy and strong again, that’s the good news. And there are lots of friends who you already know well. Far too many, in fact.

Here at the Bridge, anything you want is possible except, well … the thing we wish for the most, being back with the humans we shared our lives with. But we can stay close to them always. Let’s send purrs to your family so that they know how much you will always love them!

Sweet Angel Sophie
Our sincere condolences to your dear furamily, Angel Sophie.

We are so very sorry that you had to cross the Rainbow Bridge last Sunday. But we also heard that the Bridge glowed just a bit brighter as you crossed over and that all our CC angels were right there to welcome you and take you under their wings.

We've brought by a big bouquet of bright blue Forget-me-nots to honor your crossing, sweet angel.

Mom and Fursibs, we know how very difficult it is to let a beloved furbaby cross over, but you must know that it was the most caring thing you could have done for her.

Sweet Sophie's beautiful and elusive feline spirit has been released from the confines of her weak and failing body, and is now free to explore all the vast and amazing wonders of the universe which lie beyond the Rainbow Bridge. She will often return, however, to curl up purring within her special place in your heart.

Purrs, Neelix, Hedley and Jakar

nice to see your
new picture. we changed ours too and they'll likely stay up for a month or so before janet gets tired of it and pesters nat to change it out for something else. got a nasty wind chill out there this morning 4 above and 16 for the temp. not going to get all that much warmer either 21 for a high and we did get 1/2" more snow last night off lake ontario too. the big storm is com-ing in this weekend on saturday when it'll likely keep janet in from work as they are saying 5-10" or so and that's more than enough to say nope, i'm not going anywhere except staying home where it's safe and sound...shoveling of course and raking the stupid roof as well. angels,ab,haley

Hello Sophie
How was your weekend? Early Caturday morning, we had bad thunderstorms with lots of heavy rain, thunder, lightning & gusty winds. Our high was 65 degrees. But yesterday we had only 39 degrees. Brrrr! Quite a drastic change in just one day. I am very thankful for my nice, warm home & my heated bed. We worry about the furbabies who are outdoors.

Hope your Monday is meow-velous.

Hi Sophie & Family
Weeeee……Happy happy joy joy and thank you so much for stopping by my mobile Deluxe Hot Dog and Vittles Cart. Can you believe that I'm in the COTD winner's box? It was quite a surprise for both mom and myself and I must admit that I love my new badge. I also love that beautiful and festive flower frame Catmom Deb, purpared. Today is a day of celebration and I'm so glad that you decided to come by and help me pawty. We have plenty of food to go around so don't be bashful. Don't forget to add the mousse mouse brown and spicy mustard to the Pickled Possum Pirogies also, the Roast Boars Head Beast sammies pair purfectly with the lump-free grasshopper gravy. If you decide that you need something yummy to cool you off, please help yourself to the kegolator--I'm serving regular and high octane catnip punch. High octane or virgin for the little ones. Oh, and please don't forget the Tasty Turtle Truffle Mice Cream Tracks in the catnip cones. They're stacked in my blast chiller on the back of my handy dandy Cravin' Cart on board my Hot Dog cart!. Thanks again for helping me make this day extraordinarily special 'cause it wouldn't be without your company!

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for coming by my pawty tonight. It's always great to see you all! I've been totally spoiled all day and loving it! Thanks so much for the deelish tuna pie, hummingbird cake, hot catnip cider and the extra soft catnip mouse with the pretty feathers! You really made my day! Mom says your very welcome for the Christmas card of all us Cathousers!! She does keep busy. We do keep her busy! Thanks again, you made my day!

Hello Sophie
Rumor has it that a jolly, chubby guy in a red suit will be coming to visit us soon. Do you think that he’s a spy? I’m thinking maybe he is because he watches us sleep & knows when we’re awake. He is also nosy because he finds out if we’ve been good or bad, naughty or nice. Stalker!

Purrsonally, this peeping tom sounds a little creepy to me. I am going to play it safe & stay hidden. I suggest you do the same. We can’t be too careful these days, you know!

Kisses,

janet's getting things caught up and is not to far
she thinks from finishing all of cc as she left it till dead last this time as they were our running normal monday errands as well as an appt. at the tail end. things for master's funeral are now done thanks to janet's sisters handling everything so they wouldn't stressed or feeling pushed. janet will take 3 days for a death of a parent so instead of working 5 days before christmas she'll only be working 3 days and get paid for the other 3 plus christmas. fanny/ab/haley/5angels+1

How are you? According to Dr. William, I am purrrfect! I got wonderful results on all of my tests Friday - my temp, urine, poop, teeth, ears, heartbeat, bloodwork, and thyroid panel. While there, I also got my rabies shot, dewormer, and my nails trimmed. I weigh 11.5 lbs. Thank you for your prayers & good wishes. Mommy is much relieved.

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

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.

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

Hello Sophie
How are you? We survived the severe weather last night. We had one Tornado Warning for our town. It was scary so we stayed in the closets for about 30 mins. Thankfully we are all ok. We only lost power for a few mins because of the high winds. It rained ALL night long – we probably received 5 more inches. Thousands in Mississippi are still without power, so we are lucky. We are hoping for a quieter, more peaceful night tonight.

Happy Wine Down Wednesday!
Kisses,

ARF Animal Rescue Foundation
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

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.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

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.

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.

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
