Did you know that sea turtles are some of the planet’s most ancient and endangered creatures? Unfortunately, each year hundreds of sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico are killed or injured by a practice known as bottom longline fishing.

Please help me save sea turtles. Take action online at

Apparently, putting our used kitchen sponges in the dishwasher is not enough.

Our kitchen sponges are breeding grounds for illness-causing bacteria and viruses such as E. coli  To protect ourselves and our families, check out the advice  in this University of Florida bulletin.  Basically, every other day or so, thoroughly wet your sponges (no metallic content), put in microwave oven for two minutes, remove with tongs as they will be very hot.  When cool, wring out and dry to use again.   One source stressed that the sponges must be very wet and that they should not be left unattended in the m/wave.

To  your health and mine,

Have a happy, healthy, peaceful New Year!

Love,

Susan

Here's a great opportunity to encourage the First Family to adopt a shelter dog and set an example for the entire country.  Could help untold numbers of doggies in shelters pining for a home of their own.

Check out the link, watch the video, sign, and send it on!!

Let's make this a Happy New Year for shelter dogs too!

Love,

Susan

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/2-BIGSIR.GIF   EMERGENCY APPEAL     http://www.linnics.com/asossl/2-bigsirR.gif

Animal SOS Sri Lanka
Registered Charity: 1119902


Emergency funding is required to build a small clinic in Sri Lanka to immediately save the lives and suffering of 1,000's of strays animals.


http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image001.jpg

Sri Lanka became the focus of interest for our charity due to the appalling animal suffering and the sheer scale of it - the distinct lack of animal welfare standards and an obvious short-fall in veterinary centres / groups working specifically for the street animals. There is simply nowhere long-term to take desperately ill, injured and dying animals. No safe haven for abandoned pups, kittens and animals needing intensive care or a sanctuary base.  

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image037.jpg

" Of all the animals that suffer inhumane treatment at our human hands, the canines undergo the worst plight "
(The Island Newspaper - Sri Lanka, 13th March 2007).


There are thousands of stray cats and dogs in Sri Lanka facing a multitude of horrors in their daily struggle for life-starvation,dehydration, disease, cruelty, injuries on the roads. 

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image029.jpg

Our charity has been working in partnership with Sri Lanka to help alleviate the suffering of the animals from Colombo down to the south where we have our base. We give strays an initial assessment and where necessary we take them to Sri Lankan veterinary services for vaccinations, sterilisation, blood testing etc. Taking a stray animal to these veterinary services can be very time consuming, often taking hours, which keeps us from treating other strays in the south.  

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image045.jpg

Our mission in Sri Lanka is - 

To offer a safe haven for primarily street dogs (but other stray animals also to be helped).

A sanctuary base for long-term disabled animals - those who have difficulty coping on the streets post trauma where they can live out the rest of their lives in peace.

A well equipped surgical facility to offer quality medical care and operations, proper treatments and nutrition.

To introduce modern protocols and methods in veterinary care by having volunteer vets working alongside Sri Lankan vets training in techniques, sharing skills, and ultimately raising standards in veterinary care.

The rescue of pups and kittens from rubbish heaps and roadsides and to operate a re-homing/adoption scheme

Implementing a co-ordinated sterilisation/neutering programme and full vaccination programme with the aim to reduce the numbers of stray animals and risks of rabies in animals and humans.

Routine blood testing and prompt treatment of tropical and common diseases. Parasite eradication especially tick vectors.

To provide suitable facilities and kennelling: maternity, recovery, isolation and intensive care.

To work alongside the government and authorities to introduce effective animal welfare legislation and regulations.

To create a kinder and more compassionate society for animals through animal welfare education- securing a future for these otherwise destitute and doomed animals.

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image015.jpg

The rewards are high, to see animals that were suffering and dying become healthy is wonderful. To further give them a chance of finding a loving home is something that we will always strive for.  The above photos show two dogs that were recently found by us, we gave them treatment, care and love, they now live in a loving home in Sri Lanka.

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image065.jpg

Due to YOU we now have a base in Sri Lanka and we are building our refuge where stray animals in our care will find sanctuary. Working in partnership with Sri Lankans our project is progressing but due to the recession, that is hitting us all, we now have a serious shortfall in funding.

To become operational we only need to build a clinic on our land. We have many volunteer veterinary professionals waiting to come and work with us to carry out sterilisations and vaccinations. Without a clinic they cannot carry out that critical work which will save thousands of stray animals from suffering and death.  

http://www.linnics.com/asossl/image059.jpg

Our eventual aim is to build a veterinary clinic of excellence on our land, housing the latest in equipment and technology. Due to the recession we know that it may take some time to raise the funds to do that and with the constant reminder of thousands of suffering animals  around our land, we know that we must build an interim clinic. This will allow us to immediately start reducing the  number of suffering and dying animals in the South of Sri Lanka.

We have carefully assessed the minimum that is required to build an operational clinic on our land. To achieve this we need to raise $30,000 (£20,000) before the end of February 2009 in order to meet the planned arrival of professional veterinary volunteers who wish to help us in our work.

Thousands of suffering animals can be helped with such a clinic, we have everything else in place, volunteers who understand the enormity of the suffering in Sri Lanka are ready to join us in partnership as soon as we are operational. 

We never forget that we are here because of YOU, it is your support that has enabled us to get this far. If you are able to help us take that next step toward  becoming fully operational, please help us raise the amount we need for our emergency clinic.  

Help us save thousands of lives and stop the suffering.

Gassing animals as a method of euthanasia is a slow, painful process.  If you care about this as much as I do, please sign this petition and cross post widely. The animals are in need of our help.  I truly believe if the Board of County Commissioners realizes that others are watching and care, it might help turn the tide towards humane euthanasia in N.C.


Thanks so much,

Requires immediate local support in Florida!


Learned of this on bigcatrescue.com site.

Shockingly, while 34 states make bestiality a crime, the sexual abuse of animals remains legal in Florida. You read that right. Legal. This is not only cruel, it is indicative of other violent and sexuallly deviant crimes.

Because bestiality is legal in Florida, prosecutors are  unable to address this cruelty.

Please call and email Rep. Dick Kravitz, Florida State House and ask him to schedule HB 1227 for a hearing at the very next meeting of the Safety and Security Council. Tell him the passage of this legislation is urgent to prevent sexual abuse of animals and potential sexual abuse of humans.

Just a word on fur items in stores.  If it says "Made in China" - give it a second thought before buying.  It appears that labeling laws are very loose and much of what is sold as faux fur is actually real dog and cat hair.

Word to the wise and caring.

All the best,
Susan
