Revamped Animal Welfare/Rescue/Resource/Pet Blog! [Dec. 26th, 2008|05:37 pm]
People 4 Animals - Those of us who love animals

I run a blog called A Furry Friend. It's dedicated to highlighting animals in need and to keep people informed on general animals news, stories, and events! I have helped many dogs and other animals through my blog.
I invite anyone to please submit any animals, stories, or events they'd like me to feature. You can contact me with information at afurryfriend@gmail.com.
If you know an animal  that is in immediate need of a rescue, adoption, foster, transportation, etc., please contact me as well!

I also have links to several animal rescue/welfare resources I've compiled, including: 

  • Rescue transportation services
  • Shelter/rescue directories
  • General animal welfare/rescue resources
  • A guide on how to report and stop internet animal abuse
  • A guide on how to help both domestic & wild animals in need
  • A guide to prepare your own animal rescue kit
These resources can be found by going to my blog and clicking on any of links under "A Furry Friend Resources" on the left-hand side.

[Current Mood |thankfulthankful]

Because of the overwhelmingly positive response and generosity of family and friends old and new, and the fact that we are thisclose to reaching our goal, I've scheduled Stubby's surgery for July 2nd!

So, the last day to donate via PayPal will be June 27th! Donations made directly to the vet's office can be made all the way through July 2nd.

If you've already donated, THANK YOU!!

What a wonderful day today! Not only did Dr. Crocker's office agree to accept donations on Stubby's behalf (see my earlier posts for that info), we raised $250! Much of that $250 came from the support of the LJ communities, so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!

Since the fundraising is going so well (we're only about $250 short of our goal!), I was able to go ahead and schedule Stubby's surgery for July 2nd. He's having his bloodwork done next week, and I'm hopeful that we'll have a reason for why his teeth are in such bad shape.

I'm very grateful for and encouraged by all the positive feedback I've gotten...even the negative feedback has helped me to improve the way I'm doing things, so that's awesome.

So, if you've already donated, THANK YOU!! And if you haven't, please consider it...if you're unable to, prayers and well-wishes are accepted, too :-)

I recently posted a fund-raising request for donations to help cover the costs of extensive dental surgery for Stubby, a sweet little guy I'm fostering. Several folks suggested that they'd feel more comfortable donating directly to the vet's office than to me, which I understand completely. I thought that was a great idea, so I contacted my vet's office today, and they've graciously agreed to accept check and/or credit/debit card donations on Stubby's behalf.

Checks can be made payable to Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic. Please be sure to reference 'Account #30919' in the check's memo field.

Credit/debit card donations can be taken over the phone by calling (937) 435-3262. Again, please be sure to reference Account #30919. Their mailing address is:

Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic
5655 Bigger Rd.
Kettering, OH 45440

Thank you so much to those who have already donated!

A New Social Network For Pet Lovers! [Jun. 16th, 2008|05:26 pm]
People 4 Animals - Those of us who love animals

Hey guys, I thought you all might be really interested in ZooToo.com which is a new social network for animal lovers (just like I said in the subject haha). I actually found my groomer with it using their pet services function. So if you're like me and have a dog AND a cat, this is a place where you can put them (and other kinds of pets/animals) up in your own zoo. there's also pet news, meet-up groups, product reviews by members, and tons of other stuff.

Anyway, just thought I'd share. I'm looking to gain friends on there! OH and i almost forgot to mention that they do good for the animal community by making over shelters and giving a portion of the ad rev gained by people being on the site to shelters. i think that the more you use the site/invite people/make friends, the more $$ goes to the shelter of your choice... hence my motivation to get friends!!!!

Add me!!!!

My name is Ria, and I've created an LJ on behalf of a sweet little guy named Stubby. A friend asked me to provide a temporary home for Stubby, as well as try to find him a forever home, and I was happy to oblige. I knew that Stubby hadn't been to the vet in a few years, and would need to be caught up on his vaccinations and receive a clean bill of health before I could find a forever home for him.

However, when I took him in for his exam, the doctor determined that his oral health was deteriorated to such an extent that Stubby would need to undergo extensive surgery to extract all of his teeth and repair the damage to his gums and jawbones. As you can imagine, that kind of surgery is very, very expensive, and I if I had the means to pay for it on my own, I would do so in a heartbeat. That's where you come in...

I've created a website called www.freewebs.com/surgeryforstubby, where you can learn a little more about Stubby as well as make donations in any amount to help cover the cost of the surgery. For every $5 donated, you'll receive an entry in the Thank You Raffle for a chance at the Grand Prize of a $50 SuperCertificate to www.GiftCertificates.com

My fundraising goal is $1,200...any money raised that exceeds the goal amount will be donated to SICSA (The Society for the Improvement of Conditions for Stray Animals, which is a wonderful no-kill shelter here in Kettering, Ohio.

I'm asking for your support as I try to improve Stubby's life. Several people have told me to "just put him down, it's not worth it"...as far as I'm concerned, this is not an option. He's only four years old, and with this surgery, will lead a long, happy life. Please consider donating...even $1 will help! Even if all you can do is share the website with your friends and fellow animal lovers, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your time, and thank you for all the work you do to help our furry friends! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

I want to make it very clear that my one and only goal in creating the website and corresponding LJ is to raise the funds necessary to get Stubby on the road to health and happiness. I am not affiliated with any shelter or rescue group...I'm just one person trying to make a difference in one animal's life, in any way that I can.

New animal welfare blog! [May. 16th, 2008|01:11 pm]
People 4 Animals - Those of us who love animals

I want to let everyone know that I've recently started an animal welfare blog, highlighting animals in need all over the US. The needs range from rescues, medical treatment, forever homes, monetary donations, etc. If you know of an animal(s) in need of help, please see the contact page on my site and e-mail me the info. I also help in facilitating adoptions of animals out-of-state, if you are interested in saving an animal that is not in your area.

Please check it out; maybe you can save a life, such as these:

Hi everyone. What's going on? I just wanted to check in and say hello. My German Shepherd is doing very well. All my kitties are happy and healthy. I am proud to announce I tamed a Vulture. He's my new pet, him and his 4 companions are officially adopted by me. Also I recently got Dish Network so I can watch Animal Planet and Discovery. YAY! Hope everyone else is well.

Animal rescue in need of help ASAP [Apr. 16th, 2008|03:39 pm]
People 4 Animals - Those of us who love animals

 Please help our cause. I recently lost my job and the rescue needs some financial help to continue feeding and caring for the animals. We need bales of hay and bags of feed for the goats. Lots of food for the feral cats. Two geriatric indoor kitties need expensive prescription formula food for renal failure. One cat needs dental work as she is not eating. One goat also needs to see a vet. If you can donate, even if it is just a dollar, please click the banner. THANK YOU

Hello. I am your Mod, Martha. I am a huge animal lover.

I like all kinds of animals especially but not limited to Great White Sharks, Polar Bears, Tigers, Domestic Cats, and Domestic Dogs. I invite anyone to add me to their friends list.
