Want to HELP, Click here to Donate !

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.

Thank you

Wildlife Info and Those We Have Helped

WILDLIFE INFORMATION

First and foremost be CAREFUL.  Rabies is a problem in New Hampshire.  It is also illegal to possess wild animals in the state of New Hampshire.  However, if you need information here are some websites.  Click on highlighted/underlined text to go to the website.

What do you do first if you find a wild animal?  (click here to learn what to do first)

If the animal is injured Bedford Animal Hospital and Merrimack Animal Hospital have wildlife rehabilitators working there and can help the injured animal immediately.  CALL FIRST, do not just show up at the hospital.

What do you do if you find a baby…….(click below for information on specific animals)

If you are looking for wild life rehabilitators in New Hampshire, be aware that all are required to be licensed by the NH Fish & Game.  However, it is all volunteers.  These volunteers use their own time,  money and vehicles to care for all wildlife.  So be patient for return calls.  Since there are few volunteers to cover the entire state of New Hampshire, these rehabbers become filled to capacity VERY fast.

Click here for a list of NH Wild Life Rehabilitators .

Be aware that Dori (owner of Prof. Pet Sitting Etc.) is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for NH, however, because many clients call her FIRST, she becomes FULL very fast, so please have a plan B ready.

Fudge 

Siberian Husky, 1-2-90 – 10-14-05

Fudge came into my life on December 13, 1991. He was bought as puppy for a Valentine’s Day present. Being a Siberian husky, his previous owners believed he should be an ‘outside dog’ and, at just 8 weeks of age, tied him to a tree in the yard. For the next year and a half, every day and night, the dog was left alone outside. When he would bark or whine for attention he was either yelled at or beaten. Disgusted with the continued abuse, concerned neighbors called a friend of mine who was also a husky breeder.

Upon witnessing Fudge’s situation, she told the owners she was taking him and they did not argue. The owners gave her his pedigree papers and all (his father was classified as a grand Champion in the show ring for purebred Siberian Huskies).  I think they were actually happy to not have to deal with him anymore.  While trying to free the dog she was bitten, as all human contact in his life so far had been painful, he was naturally defensive. She brought him home.   I took him on, put him through basic and advanced obedience training and he slowly turned around.  He was extremely food aggressive and was an alpha personality, which made him a hard case to train.  He finally accepted me as the alpha in his life and I was able to use him in demonstrations, expos and other events (many of you probably met him).  He was used in many advertisements (on my brochure, on this web site, newspapers).
Fudge passed away at almost 16 years old. We had some tough times but, as he learned what love was, he responded with leaps and bounds and had become an unending source of joy in our lives.

Siberian Huskies are one of the most beautiful breeds but also the most highly intelligent and stubborn.  This breed is NOT for everyone and I would not recommend this breed as a first dog.  It is highly advised to do ALOT of research on this breed.  Talk to many owners, breeders and rescue leagues of the Siberians.  Get as much perspective BEFORE obtaining any pet but especially a Siberian.  They will ALWAYS be my favorite breed (Fudge was my third Siberian).  Many Siberians are given up because they were left as outside dogs and became bored.  This breed needs alot of interaction as a family member, obedience training and does quite well, when this happens.  If they are left alone alot, they are very good at becoming escape artists from fenced in areas (either jumping or climbing fences or digging under) or if tied, they will chew or break most ropes or chains.  They LOVE to run and have been known to end up miles from home in a short time, that is what makes them good sled dogs!  They are also, unfortunately great hunters.  They are almost as good, in some cases maybe better then cats, at killing mice and other rodents.  Most Siberians do not bark at things they are hunting, they stalk quietly until they are right behind.  If they are left to roam freely, they may find fun in killing other small animals.  It is NEVER good to let any pet roam, but especially not a good idea to let a Siberian roam freely.  Most Siberians do shed quite literally, year round.  Shedding winter and summer coats, they have a double coat for insulation in both winter and summer.  They should be brushed as often as you can.  Even with all that, in my opinion, Siberians are the most amazing dogs, with baby blue eyes and soft cuddly coats.  The Siberians, I have come to love have the personalities of little people.  Their intelligence makes them great obedience candidates, but their intelligence also makes them stubborn enough to decide NOT to do something.  You need to make it fun and interesting for them.  Many Siberians do have Alpha personalities, so it is best to not let them get away with too much. they do best with consistency and boundaries with some fun mixed in.

If you are thinking of a Siberian as your next pet, feel free to contact me, find a Siberian Owner or Breeder, or research the breed.  They are a breed that is not for every one.

Ricky, Lulu and Spanky

April, 2002

In April 2002, I was made aware of approximately 32 cats and kittens inside a building and informed that they may have had no food and water for a few days. I called our pet sitter in that area who also happened to be the Animal Control Officer. We both went to check it out and were saddened by what we found. This little house had no heat – in April it was still very cold – and there was no running water or food. Feces and urine were everywhere throughout the entire home (which was later condemned and destroyed).

When the cats saw us, they all piled up at the front door, where the Animal Control Officer kept them occupied. I entered through the side door which allowed me to get inside without any cats escaping. As soon as they saw me, they swarmed and I had to tear open the 25 pound bag of cat food. They just climbed right into the bag, scrambling over one another because they were so hungry.

We had brought bags of litter and large cardboard boxes to provide clean bathrooms, and were able to obtain several jugs of water from a neighbor.

The cats were friendly and seemed healthy. Unfortunately none of them were neutered, so it is assumed they had interbred. The range of ages were 5 weeks to approximately 5+ years. I made some phone calls and many people jumped to assist us: the Merrimack Valley Feline Rescue donated distemper vaccines, feline leukemia/FIV combo tests and worming medication. The Feline Friends Rescue volunteered help, and a few of my Veterinary Technician friends volunteered their time. We gave them physicals, vaccines, tests (all negative, thankfully), and wormed them. The Animal Rescue League in Bedford, NH was gracious enough to take all the of cats and adopt them.

I chose to take a 6 month old white with black named Spanky. He was petrified of people and literally climbed the walls to get away.  I knew he would not do well in the shelter.  I balanced him out with an overly-friendly black with a bit of white littermate, named Lulu. I have found that animals take cues from one another, and I knew that Spanky would be looking at Lulu for comfort and learning in new situations.

I also adopted a 5 week old kitten named Ricky, who was diagnosed with congenital cataracts and was expected to be blind by the time he was a year old, may possibly have distemper, etc. He also had a mysterious black yeasty substance all over his face, eyes and in his ears.  I had taken him to 4 different veterinarians, who were not familiar with whatever he had.  After 4 years, I finally found, Dr. Holub who does help with Tufts Animal Hospital.  He explained that Ricky (who did not have distemper, nor cataracts and was not blind), had allergies.  Allergies in animals do not manifest like they do in humans, with itchy watery eyes, congestion and sneezing.  In animals, allergies usually manifest in skin conditions.  In Ricky’s case, his allergies manifested in an over production of black yeast in the hair follicles, known as Malazizia Pachydermitits.  With the help of Dr. Anne Johnson, we did a blood allergy test.  Poor Ricky is allergic to numerous grasses, tree pollen, black ants, 2 types of dust mites and a slew of other things.  He now gets an allergy injection every 14 – 21 days and a monthly bath to keep the yeast at bay.  I love all my cats, but Ricky is so completely special.  He and I have this amazing connection, he is my “Soul Kitty”.

All three kitties (Lulu, Spanky and Ricky) acclimated into my home as if they had never been anywhere else and are doing fine with my other 7 cats!   Lulu is still loveable and Mr. Spanky is an insatiable cuddle bug!  I am so lucky to have them in my life.

Raina

7-12-06

Raina was apparently thrown from a car in the southbound high speed lane, just before exit 4 on the Everett Turnpike in Nashua.

I came across an unbelievable scenario driving down Everett Turnpike just before Exit 4. A young 8 month old female cat was clinging as close to the middle barrier as she possible could, in the pouring rain. I could not believe my eyes so I got off at Exit 4, and got back on to come around and sure enough, it was a cat. I pulled over into the break down lane and soon there after a Nashua Police Officer pulled up behind me. Thinking there was hope, I was glad to see him.

He came up to talk, I told him the situation, he saw the cat and demanded that I leave.  He stated the cat got there and she will leave on her own. I left infuriated, my daughter was with me and I instructed her to call everyone we knew in rescue (and we know a lot). I turned around and went back, figuring the officer was going to have to arrest me, because I was not going to leave that area until I knew she was safe. Soon, three rescuers came armed with capture equipment. I called Maureen of the Bedford Shelter and she called the NH State Police.

The State Police Officer came down and he met up with the same Nashua Police Officer who made me leave.  The amazing State Officer made him (Nashua Police Officer) stop all lanes on the highway, so we could rescue her, now named Raina.

After examination, we found that all 4 paws were raw, she was pretty scraped up and emaciated. The evidence pointed to the probability that she was thrown from a moving vehicle. It took months but she recovered and is happy in her forever home.

Help, My Pet is Sick,  and I have No Money!!

 The worst feeling is when you love your pet more than words can say and they become ill.  To make matters worse, there is medical help but it will cost more than you can afford.  I have been in the situation more than once but luckily, I did have resources and credit cards to take care of the high cost of helping my pets.  My heart goes out to those that are less fortunate than I.  The guilt of not being able to take care of one’s pet is a horrible experience.  I hope that anyone reading this has never been in that situation.  I wrote this to help if you are or if you know someone who is in need of help.

Heartbreaking Situation – a pet owner is unable to afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is homeless, a veteran, elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the cost of care may be too much. Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship or trauma in their life, making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by kind hearted people, don’t have an owner to pay for treatment. Whatever the situation, the fact remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary care, they suffer.

Here is a list of organizations that are set up to help.If you know of an organization not on this list, please contact me via email at Profpetsit@aol.com 

Keep in mind, that these organizations may require certain things from you.  They may need to know why you need help, may require financial proof, etc.  Please do not take this personally, they just want to help those in need and want to be able to stretch their funds the farthest.  Each organization is independent and has their own set of rules and guidelines. Therefore you will have to investigate each one separately to determine if you qualify for assistance:

DONATIONS to any of these organizations will help them continue their great work and help many more animals.
