The Pet Project Needs Our Help!

The Pet Project is in the running for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi. We can help them win this grant and expand their much needed services (providing pet food to food shelves for the pets of struggling families, and providing assistance with Vet services for low income pet owners).

Sidewalk Dog has a wonderful blog on this with all the info, so I'll include their link.

Please help. You don't even have to leave your chair. Here is the link on the Pet Project site that will tell you just how to vote! Everyone needs to vote once a day until the end of Dec.

In other news, we're in the process of working with rescue efforts on the Lake Traverse reservation. Changes in the housing policy on the reservation have led to animals being surrendered or "set free" at alarming rates. A number of Metro rescues are making room to take animals in an effort to help with the sudden overload.

The transport was scheduled for today, but with the weather that hit the state, efforts have been postponed until to
morrow (keep your fingers crossed!)

We'll post pictures as soon as we can of the new intakes who come our way. They won't be on the website or eligible for adoption until their vet screening, immunizations, spay/neuter, and de-worming have been completed, and then we wait to see if any health issues crop up. New intakes are always a process. And we like the cats to have settled into a foster home (where we assess appetite, litter box status, and overall personality)before we post them as eligible for adoption. So I guess the blog can give you a sneak preview.
