Dodger left us on December 13, 2012 but before he left he asked me --Dervish to continue to ask for purrs for rescues and forever homes and to continue his diary in his honor. Tomorrow will be my first Rescue Rant and Rave

 

Homes of their own for the Holidays

Our rescue group is working hard to find homes for all of our foster animals but not just for the holidays. We want them to find homes for the rest of their lives. That cute kitten or puppy will turn into a wonderful pet with the right care and socialization. Remember homes for the holidays mean homes for all of their days.

 

Homes of their own for the Holidays

It is Thanksgiving weekend and my person is home with us and the foster kittens. There is no placement today. This has started me thinking that the foster kittens should be in a home of their own for the holidays. It isn't that I mind them around. They are fun and warm to snuggle with. I would like more uninterrupted time with my person. There is only so much lap time available. I know the kittens are joy and giggles waiting to happen. Please if you are considering another furry family member choose to adopt from a shelter or rescue group.

 

Give to Where Your Heart Is Tuesday November 27th

Is this proof of global warming that there are still kittens needing help in November? There used to be an end to the awfulness that is kitten season. And while things have slowed down a bit there are still appeals for help coming in. The answer to this problem it spay and neuter and TNR. Please support efforts in your community to spay and neuter all pets and to TNR community cats. One way is through Give to Where Your Heart is

GiveLocalNow Announces Tuesday, November 27th as the Day to Give Where Your Heart Is

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, you can kick off your holiday season by doing something different – giving back. The Tuesday after Thanksgiving, now known as #GiveLocalTuesday, is part of a nationwide movement to add meaning to the holidays. Who knows-- it might become the best part of the season.


This year, help make #GiveLocalTuesday the giving season’s opening day when nonprofits, families, businesses and individuals come together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your friends, and your colleagues to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join this celebration of our nation’s great tradition of generosity. And together we’ll create a new sense of community and give where your heart is.

 

November is a month to be thankful

As we move into November and Thanksgiving many people take this time to think about what they are thankful and grateful for. As a rescue I have many things to be thankful for. I am thankful that someone cared enough to stop that day 15 years ago and rescue me from kids throwing rocks. I am grateful that she was a part of an organization -Yolo County SPCA-and got me altered and into a foster home. I am thankful that finally my foster home realized that I already had my forever home. I am grateful that we continue to foster and rescue kittens and cats. What are you grateful for my friends?

 

Support your local rescues groups and animal shelters

This is from the Humane Society of the U.S. My favorite is Tuesday. It means so much to hear that the fosters that we raised are in happy homes.

National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week is the perfect time to help homeless pets waiting for new homes in shelters and with rescue groups across the country by celebrating the places that take care of them. Each day—starting Sunday, November 4—and all week long, show your local animal shelters and rescues some love! We've set up an Event in Facebook so you can share the fun.

Seven days and seven ways to say thank you

Sunday
First things first—Locate your local shelter and rescue groups.

Monday
Learn before you leap—Looking for more affection and devotion in your life? Before you adopt, go to the Shelter Pet Project to learn what to expect when adopting a pet.

Tuesday
Say "thanks!"—Take a minute to thank the people who work at your local shelter or rescue groups. If you've adopted a pet from them, send an updated picture through snail mail, email, or by posting on Facebook to let them know how well your pet is doing!

Wednesday
Become a fan—"Like" the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook.

Thursday
Make wishes come true—Shelters and rescue groups are always in need of towels, toys, and other supplies. Check their websites for wish lists or give them a call to see what they need.

Friday
Volunteer—Even if you can’t adopt a new pet just now, you can help make life better for homeless animals by volunteering with your local shelter or rescue organization. Do you have experience as a carpenter or electrician, or are you a marketing or dog-walking whiz? All of these skills are needed!

Saturday
Help at your own home—Make the jobs of shelters and rescues easier: Outfit your cats and dogs with collars and proper ID (a microchip and ID tags) at all times, and have all of your pets spayed and neutered. Keep your cats indoors, where you can ensure they’re safe, and keep dogs on leashes when off your property.

Kittens and puppies are cute but if they are not loved and wanted they become problems. That kitten that is put outside when she comes into heat is soon a momcat, herself. That puppy who is dumped in the backyard can become protective and aggressive because it is unsocialized. How can this problem be controlled? The only way is through spay and neutering. Please spay/neuter your pets and support affordable opportunities for other members of your community. Low cost/high volume spay and neuter clinics provide a needed service. These clinics encourage routine veterinary care for the animals that are altered there.
Another way to help with the problems is to support your local open admission animal shelter. Most of these shelters are doing the best they
can with limited resources. Communities have only so much money that they can spend and often animal services is one of the first areas that is cut.
Adopt from your local shelter or rescue group. There are wonderful animals waiting for homes of their own with these groups.
Please join me and my family to purr for rescues and forever homes on the Power of purr in the rescues forums. Adopt!! Don't shop!! If you shop please shop Petfinder or your local rescue groups or shelters.

Just when we thought that we might be able to catch our breath and get the foster kittens adopted another round of kittens are coming!!! They could be the second litter of the year for some poor momcats or the first litter for teenaged momcats. Please support spay and neuter efforts in your community to help us get this situation under control. Our rescue group is full from taking kittens all spring and summer long and now we have the fall babies coming into the shelter and the appeals from people finding them and worse the people who didn't spay their cat and are having more kittens. Every cat, kitten, dog, bunny, or person should come into a world where they are wanted and well taken care of. My family and I will be purring for rescues and forever homes on the Power of purr. Please join with us to purr long and loud. Support your local rescue organizations and shelters because they make an impact on your home. Donate to your local agencies. They don't have the money for the national commercials and appeals but they are using every penny they have to help animals locally. Help them help animals in your area.

Just when we thought that we could catch our breath and work on getting all of the ones we have in rescue adopted we get calls for more young kittens. So far we have been able to fit them in but our space is being refilled more rapidly than our adoptions are happening. Please purr with my family for rescues and forever homes. Please support the trap neuter and release programs for community cats in your area. Support your local shelters and rescue groups we the ones helping animals in your community. Help spay and neuter efforts in your area. We want every kitten born to be wanted and have a home waiting for them. Purr long and loud for rescues and forever homes!!
