Review links from your group.
1. (August 2006) Homeward Pet Adoption Center
Homeward saves approximately 1,000 animals each year. Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens come into their care from all walks of life and each with a different story. Dogs found injured or abandoned at roadside stops, cats left in need of homes when their elderly human companions pass away, puppies and kittens dumped in a box at our back door. They also regularly work with animal controls across the state to rescue pets from "death row." They give them a second chance at life - a chance to find a family who values and loves them. And in the meantime, they love them while they're here at Homeward - providing them with food, shelter medical attention and love during their stay. Total donation: $400+ via p-mails to Elliot.

11. (June 07) BEREA Animal Rescue Fund
Berea’s Animal Rescue Fund “ARF” began 15 years ago as a ‘grassroots’ movement…that being a small group of animal lovers, recognizing the desperate housing and healthcare needs of the homeless animals in the southwest suburban Cleveland area, transformed their family’s garage into an animal ‘shelter’. The ‘ARF’ movement grew, when the city of Berea agreed to provide us a small, 700 sq. ft. building, and utility costs for it, with an agreement that all animals brought to the shelter would have to come through the Berea Police Dept. Now, 15 years later, with thousands of success stories of placed animals in new loving homes, the shelter is grossly overcrowded and outdated by today’s animal welfare standards. We envision a place where unwanted and homeless pets in the area would find a home with us and eventually in a permanent loving home. We firmly believe no pet should be euthanized or dumped because of a lack of such a place. Based on the intake numbers and current standards, ARF estimates the cost of providing a new facility at approximately $500,000. This is a monumental undertaking for any group, much less a volunteer run organization. ONLY, through the generous support of the community and the dedication of our volunteers, can we make this dream a reality!! TOTAL DONATION: $420!!!
12. (July 07) MEASLES Animal Haven

We do not have a shelter facility--all of our animals are kept in private foster homes, and are evaluated for health and temperament prior to adoption. All our animals are spayed/neutered and micro chipped prior to being adopted. We also administer a heartworm test, rabies vaccine, distemper combo vaccine, deworming, applied flea/tick preventative, and heartworm preventative. When needed, we also rehabilitate animals and help them learn housebreaking and basic obedience training.

There are also so many wonderful volunteers that give their time to foster so many of us too. I would just love to see this group get a little help from us Doggie Do Gooders this month.

25. (August 2008) Support Military Working Dogs - Cooling Vests Project
Starline Nunley, a member of the Gem City Dog Obedience Club, started with the idea of helping her son, Major Parker Frawley, who is a Longbow, Apache helicopter fighter pilot stationed in Iraq. She asked him if he would like a Cooling Vest to help him cope with the typically very hot temperatures encountered there. His reply was “Mom, I am and we (soldiers) are all right. The military provides for us very well, but dogs have different needs. It is so hot that they are having trouble doing their job and that puts us all in danger.” Temperatures sometimes reach as high as 145 degrees. The dogs cannot work for more than an hour to an hour-and-a-half before being completely exhausted. Our troops are provided with proper equipment but the dogs are our first line of defense in many situations. They’ve been forgotten and have no protection against the heat, blowing sands and rough terrain. They are attempting to outfit ALL 300 dogs in 45 Units across Iraq. We are sad and angry that our government is not providing adequate gear for our K9 troops who PROTECT and SERVE. "These dedicated dogs do this service selflessly and with great courage. Whatever we can do to help them do their job easier is helping to protect our sons and daughters.” This project is solely dependant on PRIVATE donations. What is the cost to outfit one dog? $300 purchases one cooling vest, two cool packs, doggles, muttluks (foot gear), a water bowl and a toy. We do receive other requests for items such as extendable leashes which wear out, and sturdy storage containers for the dog food (the rats were eating through the bags and into the food faster than the dogs could be fed!) TOTAL DONATIONS: $300! We made the goal for one package!
26. (JULY 08) SAVING FURRY FRIENDS
We rescue and care for abandoned and abused pets and strive to find loving forever homes where they can thrive. Many of the companion animals that we rescue are literally minutes from death. They may be strays, owner surrenders, abuse cases, or have medical problems but the one thing they all have in common is that they are society's throw-a ways and without rescue, they have no chance! As a sanctuary, we provide long-term love and care to animals deemed unadoptable; either because of age, medical issues or behavioral issues. They are our Sanctuary Residents. While providing care for pets and finding forever homes for them is our main focus, we are also committed to informing the public about the importance of spaying/neutering their pets, thus reducing the number of unwanted animals that end up in already over crowded shelters. TOTAL DONATIONS: $255!!!
27. (SEPTEMBER 08) Animal Rescue New Orleans - ARNO

28. (October 2008) R&J Rescue
This NO-KILL rescue was started by a kind, caring couple who did not set out to be an animal rescue. They retired & moved from a nearby town to live on their farm, happily ever after. What they found, unfortunately, were abandoned dogs & cats showing up on their doorstep. These caring people took them in, fed, housed, and took care of their medical needs, including spaying and neutering, using their own money in the process. Something so unfortunate turned into something wonderful because these people opened their huge hearts to help animals, and this is how their rescue was born! As is the case with all rescues, they need all the help they can get. They are in need of GOOD dog food, towels, beds, and any pet supplies that one can imagine, but mostly are trying to raise enough money to buy concrete for their new shelter floor. Total Donations: $245!!
29. (November 2008) Chihuahua Rescue and Transport
From their website: Our purpose is to extend public education and awareness regarding abuse and neglect. In 2007, CRT placed several hundred Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes.

As in most rescue groups, our dogs are cared for in healthy, safe, loving foster home environments. CRT foster parents work very hard to be sure that their foster dog feels safe and loved while working on housetraining, crate training, socialization, etc. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, fecal tested, microchipped, on heartworm preventative and have all other veterinary needs taken care of (such as heartworm treatment, dentals, luxating patellas, etc.) CRT is known, and has always been known, for taking the injured, infirm and elderly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. Please consider the adoption of one of these dogs as well. Seniors and special needs dogs make great pets too! Total Donation: $110!

33. (March 2009) Friends For Life
Friends for Life Animal Sanctuary is dedicated to the homeless and stray animals living on the streets and in the deserts. These animals do not have an advocate and will likely suffer starvation, illness, or injury as they try to survive alone. Animals that are in the pound will not reproduce and are therefore not perpetuating an overpopulated animal community. Animals on the street are reproducing and creating even more unwanted animals. Friends for Life prefer to get to the source of the problem through spaying and neutering. Our volunteers also work with feral cats - utilizing TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return) - a program Friends for Life has been maintaining since 1993.

We can give potential adopters information on how they may interact with cats, kids, men, women, other dogs, and so on. These are vital components to a good match. We also try to improve potty training skills if they are not already house trained. Foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our dachshunds for life in a world where fear and starvation are non-existent.
