There are 42 dogs left that are about to die. If you have been thinking about adopting or fostering, now is your last opportunity.
These loving dogs do not deserve to die. They deserve a chance to live!
And we would like to add a note about some cats in need. Our friend Criz lives in Malaysia and he has a heart for animals. We think he is very deserving of help and his record speaks for itself. He took in Mama and Papa kitty who added 4 kitty babies (the 6 Js), then before Mama could be spayed, she was pregnant with two more (now 8 Js) and then along came Jolyn (now 9 Js). He also feeds the neighborhood strays.
Many of you will remember when Criz assumed the vet bills for his mechanic's cat Panther when he was seriously injured. He and his cats have been hit hard with illness and vet bills these last weeks. 2 of the cats are still sick. Janice won't be released from the vet's until her bill is paid.
You can read some of his recent posts about his cats' illnesses at Criz Cats Sanctuary. And if you can spare a dollar or two, perhaps you would help him. Janice was the sickest of the group and required surgery and a vet hospital stay. He would really like to have her come home. He is evidently putting the 3 youngest Js up for adoption (read that on the Cat Blogosphere today), so we know he is really hurting -- and not just financially. There is a Paypal "Donate" button on his blog.
And our Southern Gentleman Cat friend Beau is in need of some routine vet care which his mom can't afford right now. Miss Peach is holding an auction on her blog for some of the bracelets her mom made special for Beau and to help pay to sterilize a couple of rescued cats. Stop by and do some early Christmas shopping.
