Refuge News

Operation Loose Goose
Maverick, as she’s come to be known, in the arms of a waterfowl rescuer, is going just fine, and thanks everyone for their part in her rescue.

Some one in Lake Arrowhead in Stafford VA has a bottle of insulin (the kind we use) and a box of syringes to donate to us.  Who can pick them up and bring them here?  Insulin needs to be kept cool.  Not out of the fridge for more than 4 hours and not heated up above like 70.  So can’t leave in a hot car.  A cooler and small ice pack or pack of frozen veggies will do the trick!!!  Vincent@RikkisRefuge.org if you can help and I’ll give you the contact’s name and number. 

Tomorrow Wednesday Ferbuary 9th

Benefits Rikki’s and Lots and Lots of YUMMY stuff !!!!!

Help us build out Ebay store.  Got cool things to sell that you’d like to see benefit Rikki’s?   Mr. Callahan wants to open Callahan’s Corner of military memorabilia and collectables.   He says if you have any kind of military items, the older the better, he’ll clean ‘em up, appraise them, and list them on Rikki’s store to help the animals!!!  100% of proceeds to the animals.  Check hi and low.  Check your basement.  Check your attic.  And let me know Vincent@RikkisRefuge.org

Here’s where to find our - right now itty bitty store!!!

Marilyn’s mom, Stacey, was our first shopper!!  Stacey bought a Duke and Vincent card for her beloved Marilyn for Valentines Day!!!!   Buy one for your best friend and send in their photo and I’ll put it right here!!!

The bad lady who sole-ed things back in October pled NOT guilty at her arraignment on Friday.  WOW, she’s already written a confession to the sheriff????   So what’s she saying, opps I forgot, I didn’t really do it?  So now it’s set for trial March 3rd.  The bank called mommey and said they have returned the money that was actually taken out of her account.  Nobody ever found all the checks the bad lady stole.  But she never could cash them anyway.  So it hurt the animals not to have all their money for food - but at least the bad lady didn’t get to use any of it. 

And MORE good news!!!  Mommey is talking to the game warden who came out and helped get rid of the bad trespassing poachers on New Years Day.  She’s going to come out and walk property lines so she knows where to be patrolling next hunting season. 

Do you have survey equipment?  Are you a surveyor who can help out for a few hours?  We have the corners marked and now we need help getting the lines in between done properly.   Please contact me if you can help with this.  Vincent@RikkisRefuge.org  Joe Callahan can help, and show you the corners, but he needs someone with proper survey equipment to make sure those lines are straight and accurate.   

From Donna: I won some money on the game yesterday so I'll make a donation soon.  I wish I could give more.  You guys are definitely part of my Lotto daydreams!

What a great idea?  Anybody else won a Super Bowl bet and want to buy me a can of Fancy Feast too!!!!

photography and art
visit to see more of his spectacular work

Wayne loves to study an animal and capture their essence which he then turns into a whimsical work of art depicting them at work or play.  Your pet’s whimsical custom portrait available for only $300 (donated to Rikki’s Refuge). Contact me and I’ll put you in touch Vincent@RikkisRefuge.org  Prints available, 8” x 10”, on heavy stock, suitable for framing, $25 each, resolution may vary so you may want to ask first.  Specify which print you want and shipping address.   http://bit.ly/WayneMorrisPrint   

Though Cod is a near Purrfect Little Town - we still get that icky white stuff most of us kitties hate!  You met Marilyn earlier today, inside with her Valentine’s Card.  Marilyn hates the snow and the extra work it brings.  Though she’s very glad for the mice it drives inside!
