Good Morning Good News !!!! December 9, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!    December 9, 2010 
Wayne Morris is my artist, isn’t he wonderful?

11 days, only 11 days left - I’m jumping up and down - Vote Vote Vote Rikkis Refuge VA USA

It’s that time of year again.  Mom has to justify our existence to ensure funding for 2011, actually 2012 cus things have such a long lead time.  I need your help. 

Do you think I should be allowed to continue to live?  Do you think my life is valuable?  How about all my friends here?  Do you think Rikki’s should be allowed to carry on as a charity and to be allowed to get donations?  Do you think Rikki’s should be listed in the Combined Federal Campaign and the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign so people can give thru payroll deductions?

If you do, I need your HELP.  They make mom prove that Rikki’s is good and valuable and that we help HOOMANS.  That’s what they care about.  Us cats and dogs don’t really matter to them.  Even though each of us has touched and will go on to touch the lives of hoomans.  Mom has to justify our existence as a Human Health and Welfare Organization.

YOU can help her do this.  Please write your testimony about the value of Rikki’s to YOU or to other hoomans.  Please send me your testimony so I can help mom with all the data gathering and writing she must do to help us qualify for CFC and CVC funding.

Silent Night --- where's my mice ....

And now a day for the dogs!!   They’d love to have these lovely outdoor houses. Medium size is fine, we don’t want them too big or they get drafty. Stuffed with straw, these houses will be used by dogs – and sometimes a goat or pig – and maybe an occasional chicken!
