Linda Hemenway · All that I am capable of doing!
Dianne Brillon - Feeding feral cats in my backyard and buying a coffee and a sandwich for my homeless friend
Maike Liekweg Johnson - Right now, I am very desperate to help a group in Poland. Their rescue home burned down on Jan 1 and they have lost everything. Their home, clothing, equipment, meds .... And three wonderful dogs died in the fire. I have translated a lot of text from Polish into English into German and asked a lot of groups and companies for help and assistance .....
Jeff Green - we took our Flopsy over to the local bunny rescue today to meet a potential boyfriend! she is now staying there for a lickle while to bond with him, if it all goes well we will be adopting him! So Flopsy wont be lonely any more & a rescue bunny will get his forever home with us :)))))
Harry Murray - I (Lucy) am a therapy puppy, and I go to the nursing home once a week to help take care of some of the patients there. Also, Mom is planning on training to be a therapy dog handler so she can take me to the nursing home or the hospital and give her Dad (my handler) some free time. We also gave some of our Christmas treats to the animal shelter for the dogs there to enjoy.
Shelley Reigers - Bought some dry food for a friend who has eight kitties and two doggies. =^-^=
Jon L. Adams - May and June - took in two ferals from back yard. June - suddenly became six cats (4 babies). LOL
Autumn-Skye Boothe - I helped get a lost puppy who was roaming and eating out of my trash to a shelter (with a friends's help) where they will place her or find her family, and I donated all of the supplies I had left from my dog dying to the shelter to help other doggies in need.
Nora Eldridge - I help feed a feral cat who lives in the drain at my office. I bought a bag of Blue Buffalo, since it's only one cat, so I figure it'll go pretty far. This afternoon, she was sitting outside the drain, so I gave her food and water. She sniffed the Blue Buffalo, turned her back and sat down! Maybe the other woman had already fed her. I never saw a finicky feral before!
Rene Luther - I've been cheering up sick & grumpy humans and building feral cat houses. I've also made homemade suet for birds & squirrels. I actually saw a bluebird hanging out of a Purple Martin house I made.
Lesley Winch - Apart from looking after my three cats and being looked after by them, I am managing to shake off a bad bout of the flu at long last. I've had 3 hospital appointments in 3 days so I've been a patient as well as working there.
Gayle M. Marie - Our house has been collecting extra blankets for some new feral homes. We also gave the local rescue group a LOT of publicity about how they helped Bandita when she was so sick in December. (I am often homebound with illness, and they came over, took her to the vet and brought both kitty and medicine home!!). As a result, a lot of people in my subdivision are collecting books for their upcoming book sale, as well as making donations in Bandita's name !!
Sherry Chumley Brockner - Not much this year do far but did get two more from a kill shelter in December
