Good Morning Good News !!!! June 14, 2013

                           Happy Flag Day to YOU !!!


My friends, I need your HELP.  Opie has been working.  He’s a good kid.  But he’s really let me down on this one.  Some wonderful donors put up a $15,590 DOUBLE YOUR DONATION challenge .....  and so far Opie has only raised $5,545.  Just over 1/3 of what’s needed.

This challenge MUST BE MET before midnight Saturday June 15th .... or IT’S GONE !!! 

That means .... for every dollar missing in the challenge we will lose two dollars ....  two dollars that could be put to great use all for the animals.

This is a real shame .... 

HELP ME make these good donors pay up !!!! 
                            DON’T LET ‘EM OFF THE HOOK !!!!

You can donate as little as $1 or enough to guarantee we meet that challenge !!!

My BELOVED FRIENDS Will you help me NOW?


Thank YOU !!!!
     With all my love,
       Vincent D. Cat

Meet one HAPPY bird !!!

Introducing Mr. Pitty Pat  !!!! 

Poor Mr. Pitty Pat, the swan, was shot and lost part of his wing.  He was rescued and had surgery and has recovered.  But he’ll never fly again.  He recently arrived at Rikki’s Refuge where he’ll live protected, for the rest of his life

Miss. Pitty Pat has lived here for years, as our solitary swan.  She was born with a defect in her wings and cannot fly.  She gets along with the geese and the ducks, but she’s never had a real bonded friend.

But when Mr. Pitty Pat arrived ....  it was like love at first site or like they'd known, and remembered each other from long, long ago.

They came from the same pond on a farm but 4 or 5 years apart. Miss Pitty Pat is THRILLED to have a friend of her own kind.

It’s so wonderful to see out animals not only protected and healthy, but happy too !!!!

Sometimes you’d just think this place was going to the birds !!!
