First, we would like to give you an update on Carrol Crocker's dogs. Since we were computerless for several weeks, Jan checked on her when she could but she didn't get enough computer time to post any updates for us. But Heather at Hope4Dogs posted recently (December 14, "Carrol is a Fighter") that the city of Rainesville has finally given her a definite date. She has until February 6 and then any remaining dogs will be seized and killed.
So, if you are able to adopt, foster or transport any dog(s), contact information is on Carrol's Green Acres page. There are currently 17 dogs remaining.
For those of you who don't know Katie of Katiez Furry Mewz, we would like to introduce you. She needs our help. And before you assume you can't help her, remember that praying for one in need is worth far more than money.
Jan has been through some hard times in her life, so she knows how embarrassing it is to have to ask for or accept offered help. But Katie, her cats and her disabled mother are in a serious situation. It's winter in the midwest and they are cold and hungry. She's looking for another job but meanwhile they still have to survive.
We are aware of some help that will be forthcoming but if you would also like to help, you can read about their needs on Kattiez Furry Mewz. They have other needs but they're not posted, so we're not going to mention them. It's not a good idea to put your home address on the web, so she has posted a post office box address.
Also -- and we're not telling tales because she has posted on a few occasions on this subject -- her husband is in the "pound" for humans and when the breadwinner is incarcerated (Wow, we didn't know we knew that word.) the entire family suffers. So, if any of you know of any resources on the net for prisoner's famillies, would you leave her a comment or leave us one for her.
Christmas is nearly upon us. There are so many in need. All we can do is try to help those we are aware of.
We might not be able to participate in the fundraisers, but we are proud of the way we see bloggers and non-bloggers respond to those needing help of some kind. We posted a link to Moki's blog 2 days ago because Moki and Crystal want to see a Christmas miracle for Ella, the special needs kitty spending the holidays with them. We were astounded to visit last night and find they had already raised $333 and only had $67 to go. If you haven't met Ella yet, visit her at Save Moki. And if you have met her, there are a couple more videos posted that you will enjoy. She is a happy, energetic kitty.
Update: We have just checked Moki's blog and Ella's Christmas miracle is coming to pass. Her cart will be ordered tonight. That is wonderful.
We have a number of posts way past due and we will get to them. One day, hopefully before Sam (the youngest) turns white around the muzzle. Oh, wait, he's already white. One day. Hopefully.
