English: Houston, Texas, October 1, 2008 — Hurricane Ike orphaned thousands of pets. The Society for the Protection of Animals (SPCA) recruited volunteers to foster pets while they attempted to reunite them with owners. This dog, fostered for 10 days, is being adopted by a new family. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) works with government agencies and local volunteer groups to help care for pets, protected, and endangered species after a disaster.

11.4.12 How You Can Help Pets Effected By Storm Sandy.


In Memoriam


Yesterday I had to do one of the hardest things I know: letting go of my 16+ year old cat and companion before cancer got to him.  The easier thing to do would have been to keep him around for me.  The kinder thing for him would be to go in some peace and not so much pain.  So I did the kinder for him and, with my vet of almost 20 years, we said a tearful goodbye.

Sometimes the kind thing to do is not the easy thing.  And that’s the paradox of kindness – we do it not to necessarily make us feel good, although that sometimes is the result; we act in kindness for the other.

Good night sweet Morice – you will be very much missed…


A Dog With Heart


This story was featured on a local news channel in Denver a few nights ago.

A male long-haired Chihuahua named Jack.

I was so happy to hear about the different groups of people who have been enriched by this little dog, from the owner, to the nursing home residents, and also the engineers at a local school.  Each group played a part in giving life and being given life by the events of the story.

Watch or read about BeeBee the Chihuahua HERE.  I hope you’ll be inspired!


Friday Fun


Happy Friday!  I am dedicating this to Peak Pet Pantry in Colorado Springs, for working with so many organizations and evacuees of the Waldo Canyon Fire to help take care of displaced pets.  Thanks for all you do!


Animal Rescue In Brooklyn


Washington Animal Rescue League

Thanks to my friend Linda for sending this link to me!  This is a wonderful story about one man’s attempt to care for rescued animals.  Watch the video HERE.

The home page of the Sean Casey Animal Rescue website cites this as their mission statement:

“The purpose of this endeavor is to aid unfortunate animals in the interest of a higher quality of life. We take in rescued, confiscated, neglected, injured, ill, unmanageable, or otherwise unwanted animals from private owners, zoos, shelters, and other public  organizations. These animals are cared for, and/or rehabilitated to the best of our ability and means  until which time they can be found healthy, happy homes – whether it be through adoption to qualified candidates or legally released into habitats suitable to the specific species in conjunction with licensed wildlife rehabilitators.”

What I really like is Sean’s approach to community involvement.  He states in the video that volunteers get school credit, community service credit, and they are learning job skills.  Making a difference in community for people and pets!

For more information on how to get involved,  to donate or volunteer, check out the rest of the website – Sean Casey Animal Rescue.

**Donations of newspaper, plastic bags, bleach, dish soap, paper towels, as well as old pillow cases and towels are very helpful.**
