Hello everyone!!!

I am back!!! I was gone working on different projects.

Went on the road on rescue and I am please and sad to say, we saved animals this is the happy news, but is sad that there are cruel people out there. With no respect for life.

As you all know made a song for Lennox and against BSL, well it didn´t get very far.

Now I made a new version. To try to get this more out there onto the mainstream.

Many were saying I need to give a humans face to the project, because most people relates better when a human face is to be seen.

Well for me is not like this, but I want to give a try. So here is the new version.

Please od share everywhere, it lives from sharing.

I am grateful for all the support!!!

I will be bringing a new edition of my news paper soon.

Be safe everyone!!!

Check this live camera in Africa.

Difficult to see the animals, but sometimes you do get to see them.

I don't want to listen to the song even though I am sure it is beautiful - I will just cry my eyes out! Had a problem with a pitty I feed (he looks just like Lennox). He got out the gate and bit someone that I know (not badly). Thank the Lord she did not lay a complaint, but I then took him to be neutered (which I told the owner to do a long time ago) and he is also on a month's calming medicine until his hormones are back in control. He is absolutely beautiful and hope this does the trick. I would hate him to be put down because he is not usually aggressive.

Hi Leslene, is ok, I understand. I cried many times while recording. It was a roller coaster ride. There were many takes till we got this done. I am so sorry you are going through  a hard time with the furbaby. Is so important to neuter dogs. People understimate all the troubles that can come from this. Thank you for reacting fast, and say a big thank you from me to the person he bit. This will help but only if he too gets his needs met. Like exercise and socialization. The normal things. Which I am sure you would but the ownner will have to take responsability for.

Thank you for sharing your situation with us. Whishing all the best to you and the furbaby.

Be safe you both.

Thank you Buffy for your kind words - they mean much to me. I am keeping a close watch on him and have given strict instructions to the owner on how to handle him. You are really an inspiration to us all.

I sent info. about your song & newsletter to some of my friends and asked them to share. The video on Lennox was very say...poor baby what an injustice was done to him. And why was he imprisoned for so long is beyond me. It was very cruel because he wondered where his family was & why he was there. Little did he know that his family was being kept away.

Oh no, I cannot even begin to tell you all how this Lennox issue floored me. I would have marched right into that place and wreaked havoc and would probably have been jailed, but even that would not have stopped me trying to rescue him. You see, we don't have these laws in South Africa, people would rebel against it because it is an absolutely ridiculous law. I am so emotional today - can't seem to stop crying. As you know I feed lot's of animals in the morning, including quite a few cats and kittens who all live at one house. When I stop at the first lot of dogs in the road, they see me and all come running. This morning (and I am always very careful to drive slowly to them in case they run under the car) and this morning that is exactly what happened. One of the kittens, which I didn't even see, must have come running from the side and my wheel caught it. I didn't even know, it was at 4.30 pm this morning until I got out the car and saw blood - when I looked under the car the kitten was having convulsions and then died. I have never felt so heartbroken and am absolutely devastated - I just can't stop thinking about it.

Marie, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish so much that this song travels and makes people stop before judging these dogs, this could save lives. I know is just a song and many others have tried this before. But even if this song saves 1 or 2 dogs, this would be a titanic victory. Well,  I do hope it saves more furbabies. Need to think positive, right? Is worth the try. Thank you sooooo much.

I will be making more songs and videos. This is my extra way of helping. I got this feeling and need to do more. So this is the way I found. Music!!! Can´t thank you enough.

Leslene, I am so sorry!!!Think like this, the kitty is safe and in a good place, where love is the only thing in existance.

Don´t breakdown, there who those who are still alive needing your love and care. I am sure this kitty would want you to go out there, and love all the other animals in need. Thank you for all you do, you are in my thoughts. So sorry for your loss.

You are an angel,  heping all these animals.Thank you for all you do.

I am glad to hear that you guys don´t have BSL.

It is with heavy hearts that we share some sad news received today. Yesterday, Chum took seriously ill. She was placed on IV and was attended by Vet. The SPCA monitored her condition through the night. She rallied, ate some canned food and asked for belly rubs. Today, Irene received a call that her condition has worsened. At this time, Chum’s recovery is uncertain, however, she is with Irene, SPCA and Veterinary Clinic staff for close monitoring and further tests.
We are in direct contact with Irene and will update you as soon as possible.

Please join us in prayer for Chum. ♥

Emergency for Husky
1 year ago

Hi there my firends, share this if you can please!!!

Friends of Youki is an association located in the department of Loir et Cher whose purpose is to collect abandoned cats and dogs, either by their teacher or from the headland around and make their investment in a new family , to ensure the well being of the animal in its new home by carrying out controls. Without it many animals from the headland would not have a future.

Today we call friends Youki using euthanasia to save a little fox terrier found and recovered by the municipality. He made his 8-day impound regulations and nobody has claimed.

Well worrying fracture
Since Saturday the fate of this young dog is suspended what we can do for him. In fact, it took very quickly to face the facts: Huky has a problem with the leg he does not ground, the vet made radios showing a fracture of the femur requiring surgery quite heavy during which will put pins and plates. 
This, added to the sterilization and identification, a cost unbearable for a small association. Without surgery, Huky can not have a proper quality of life and the only solution is euthanasia. The association could not resolve this possibility Actuanimaux called to the rescue.

Avoid at all costs euthanasia
Yet Huky is young (under 18 months) and it is nice as hell. Can we solve such a decision? The vet we contacted had a very big effort to adjust its rates. We all really want to know that can Huky a new beginning: we can save lives by mobilizing by Friday.

The need to act urgently
Huky is sedated and under observation. But with a fracture that is older than a week, it is now that the operation is performed quickly: ideally Thursday or Friday to avoid neurological problems and a callus that could complicate surgery.

We count on you for this new challenge, to give that little bit lucky to live and show the association "Friends of Youki", who discovers our site, that solidarity can accomplish Internet as a new miracle. Thank you all!

Just click on the red ballon 5 times for as long as you see the ballon is active. 

Please this costs us nothing, but for Husky means life or death!!!

Is a french site!!!

What a horrible waste of beautiful and innocent lives. Thats the main reason every state and country should try to acquire grants from big companies and groups that believe in saving these precious live from death.

 

Here in San Antonio we just received another grant. I'm not sure if its from Best Friends, but we've had grants from Petco and others that provide enough to have 3,500 cats done free to the pet owners. Last year the money was to fix 3,500, but we had 4,700 fixed.  So far I've had 14 cats fixed.  The package includes the surgery, the tip of the left ear clipped, all their vaccinations, including rabies and a shot of penicillin. Its offered to certain zip codes only but I've had 3 done by using my sisters address. Even if the grant money is used up the surgeries cost only $20.

Hi there my friends,

My good friend Barbs did make news with the second version of my Lennox song. Which I thank her for. I was afraid people would not be interested,  as it is the second version of it. So i was unsure about making news. Well Barbs is such a big supporter she did it. 

So I will share with you. Would please give her support on this news. Share it too. To get to the people who did not see it and would share it, this needs to get to the right people. 

Thank you for all the support with this, it really is in my heart. Something needs to be done.

But I am glad to informe we are near the 900 clicks. The other video didn´t make it to the 300. So this is awesome!!!

BSL has to be stopped!!!!
