GoFundMe to Help More Animals
I have been in animal welfare and rescue since 1978. I have helped thousands of animals. I am a certified animal abuse investigator, animal behaviorist, trainer, veterinary technician and more. I am a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in the state of NH and volunteer to raise and release orphaned baby wildlife! I help foster rescued and orphaned cats, dogs, whatever.
I also help people with pet care. Some people who are alone have no one to turn to for help if they become ill, or disabled or hospitalized. Many are on a fixed income. I would like to be able to help any animal or person who needs it.
Your help will help me, help more animals and people. In the past decades I have donated my time and money but with your help, I can do more.
Pictured above, is Gus Bennett. He was 4 weeks old and rescued from a burned building. He was the only survivor!! We were asked to foster him for the shelter, washed him up and fed him formula from a bottle. Boy, was he HUNGRY! After that he got a physical, deflead and wormed. Once he got his strength up, we weaned him onto solid food. Vaccinated, neutered, and leukemia tested him. What a healthy handsome boy. He is now my educator spokes kitty !!
With your help, we could help more like Gus Bennett.
In my business, we get calls every day from people that need help with pet care. One women called crying on the phone. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital. She had two cats at home that had not been cared for for at least two days. She had no family or friends. Could we help? She also could not pay, she was on a fixed income and barely making ends meet We could not just let the cats go uncared for, so we helped her. She was able to relax, get well and did go home soon after. We want to be able to help more people like this but as a company, we can only help so much. With your help, we could help more like this wonderful woman who really loved her cats.
Another rescue was Ricky, Lulu and Spanky. We got a call stating there were a few cats in a trailer that needed help. When we arrived there were 30 cats, kittens living in a mobile home with no heat, no food, no water!!! The home was covered in cat urine and feces. Some cats were too sick but most were adopted out to great homes.
There were three that I took in personally becuase of their health problems. i knoew most do not get adopted when they have health problems.
Lulu was one of the friendliest and she was close to Spanky. Spanky was so frightened of people ( many of the cats were not used to people) that he was litterally climbing the walls, poor guy. Once I got him in my arms, he was so exhausted, he just collapsed. I took Lulu, to help Spanky be calm. I knew that if Spanky was brought to the shelter, he just would not do well. So, I worked with him day after day to get him to come out of his shell. Eventually, he did and he is the most loving boy. He is now 12 and was diagnosed with cancer. We have been treating him since last December, but the cancer is now winning. The tumor is in his left nostril and sinus area. Treatment of course has been in the thousands. Just wish there was a cure.
Lulu, who was Spanky’s companion, has IBD and needs to always be on a special diet. Other wise her tummy gets upset and she has horrible bloody diarrhea. We suspect that she also has some food allergies as well.
And there then there is Ricky. He is my lovebug. He was rescued when he was 5 weeks old. He was covered in a black yeast. We immediately took him to 3 different vets, one told us he had distemper, one said he was going to be blind and the third had no idea. It took years before we found a diagnosis. He has severe food and environment allergies and because of his lowered immune system the opportunist yeast in all of our bodies, took over since there was nothing to keep it in check. It took many years and thousands and thousands of dollars worth of medical testing, etc. to finally come to this comclusion. We have to be very careful because he is allergic to beef, pork, grass, most tree pollens, mold, black ants and more. We did extensive blood tests to find out the exact allergens. He is also on a special diet. The bad part is he is picky. As soon as we find a food that works, he will eat it for a while then stop.
Ricky also has a luxating patella, he is fine now but as he gets older, this may cause him problems. Hopefully, he will not need a special harness to help him walk.
Both Ricky and Lulu are hyperthyroid. They are on medication, however, the best thing for a cure is Radiocat. This would cost approximately 2000 per cat, which includes all the pre-testing and treatment.
These are just a few of the many animals that we have helped. With your help we can help more.
My dream is to one day open an Animal Center. A place where a person can go to find almost anything to do with animals in one place. A business plan was completed a few years ago, then the economy hit. Many people who saw it, exclaimed it to be innovative, fresh, needed and will help animals with services, education and also in animal welfare. As time goes on and everyone gets back on their feet from the economy, we may revisit this. At that time, investestors will be needed. For now, we will help where we can. My wish has always been that every animal is loved and care for in a forever home.
ANY amount will help. So, if you only have 5 or 10, that will still help a baby orphaned kitten with formula, or a baby squirrel whose mom was killed. If you would like to help more than that, see the levels below!! But remember, any and all amounts will help animals in need.
