Hope this note finds you well!

I started a new business and I really want to show you what it is.  It's a work from home, 26 year old company. It offers non toxic green products which can help your health and the environment.  There are 850,000 homes using these products.

A few years ago I was laid off from my 6 year employment in corporate America.  I was devastated.  I had a mortgage payment and bills and household expenses.  I searched for 2 years to find another job that paid me enough to survive.  I had interviews, was very qualified but never got hired.  My husband also got laid off from his Manager position at the local ski resort.  We live in a small mountain town far from the city and this made it even harder to get a job making enough to cover us. 

My sister introduced me to this company and it was my salvation.  What appealed to me was the whole package.  It was an American company, it was debt fee, it manufactured non toxic green products, it had integrity, did not lay off employees, in fact employees are a part of the company family and the compensation plan is limited only by me.  I could work from home and not make a long commute.  This company would give me the opportunity to build my own business and the ability to take my financial future in my own hands and run with it.  This company was one that I would be proud to represent and honored to share with others.  I was looking for a company that had a mission that was more than making money off the backs of others and lastly a company that cared about its employees. 

I joined at the beginning of 2012 and I now have my own business and I am helping people.  I am making a difference in peoples lives and I can tell you that it is very rewarding.  I am in business no matter where I travel.  I only need a phone and a computer. 

My daughter is now using these products to keep her kids safe.

I would love to have you see my presentation for my company.  It will take 45 mins.  Can you do this tomorrow or the next day?  I'm so excited and this is something that anyone would be good at.

If you have done any research on the products you use in your home you would be scared to death!  Go to your kitchen cabinet and read the warning labels on the cleaning products and do this in your bathroom also. Well known brands have fiberglass, formaldyhyed, mica, amonia. These products are TOXIC and can cause SERIOUS health problems such as Asthma, Skin Problems, Cardio Vascular Illness, Poisoning & even Cancer.  The news recently announced that Johnson & Johnson Bab y Shampoo has formaldyhde in it!  Tide Laundry detergent has fiberglass in it!  Statins people are using for High Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure are causing people liver and kidney damage.  We offer natural products to lower these.

As well as saving you and your family from dangerous toxins, you can make a full or part time income.  My partner is making 30k a month.  He started in April 2011.  Imagine the lifestyle we could have with that?  I made Director this month and I plan on making Sr. Director by July which will give me $5 k a month and $400 per month for a car payment!

Tonya from Wolf Mountain has also signed up to build the business as well to help the wolves and her have a better life.

Please let me when you can listen to the informational presentation.  You will not be sorry and you will lean alot  If after you listen, you are not interested, no problem.  I think you will really like it though and see the benefits to it.  I know many people are now intoo natural products and the environment and feel it would be a great fit.

Email me or call me with the time that works for you.  760-662-8395.

 

Hugs,

Save Wolf Mountain Sanctuary Target: Dena Smith, Director Land Use Services Department
Sponsored by: Care2.com

Wolf Mountain Sanctuary rescues wolves and fosters them in a sanctuary in Southern California, as well as educating visitors about the plight of this threatened species. However, local officials recently shut down Wolf Mountain Sanctuary and demanded that the sanctuary repermit, a process this nonprofit organization cannot afford.

Even though Wolf Mountain Sanctuary complied with all regulations and held an Exhibitor License since 1987, the County of San Bernardino will not allow the organization to continue its work until it files paperwork to receive a new Exhibitor License. The sanctuary does not have the resources to repeatedly file paperwork and pay the accompanying exorbitant fees. And it shouldn't have to.

The work of Wolf Mountain Sanctuary is too valuable and unique to be abandoned with so little cause. Urge the County of San Bernardino to allow them to continue protecting wolves from extinction.

=============================

Wolf Mountain Sanctuary (WM, a 501-3-C Non-Profit Organization, has operated in Lucerne Valley, CA for 20 years. The mission of WMS is to educate the public with regard to the history, social structure, physiology, environmental impact, mythological, and current legislative issues concerning wolves and wolf behavior. WMS is in a unique position in that all the wolves on the premises have been rescued. They can no longer be re-introduced into the wild, so they serve as good will and educational ambassadors for those fortunate enough to be able to visit and interact with them.

WMS has held an Exhibitor License since 1987. In 1987, Phyllis Brooks of the Planning Commission told WMS that they needed to have handicap parking, loading zone, public lavatory and a 24 foot gate for in and out traffic for the public which was done and has been maintained since then. WMS has complied with all regulatory permits & licenses required by the State, County, and USDA. Their record is spotless with regard to cleanliness, health of the animals, parking requirements, lavatory requirements etc.

After 20 years of operation within the regulations of the State and County, WMS is now being ordered to file all this paperwork again? Why?

New Commissioners with the County of San Bernardino have unfairly targeted WMS, requiring WMS to re-file all paper work, and subsequently pay the astronomical fees, which were paid and filed 20 years ago. WMS simply does not have the resources to complete this process time and time again, nor should they have to. It is egregious on the part of the County to demand more money from a non-profit to compensate for their lack of revenue from others businesses in the county, which WMS supports.

As a California Non-Profit Organization, WMS relies solely on donations generated from visitors at the Sanctuary. It costs approximately $2000 per week to feed the wolves, and these costs do not include medical care which can, and does exceed thousands of dollars.

WMS makes a significant economic contribution to San Bernardino County. Visitors come from all over the country, and they provide a revenue stream for local restaurants, hotels, shops, gas stations, gift shops, local artisans etc.

I am a supporter of WMS in their plight to save a wild, threatened species, and educate the public. The unfounded and unsubstantiated harassment from the county cannot continue, and threatens many lives at WMS. There are many, many others like myself and we will stand strong together to save this wonderful organization.

As a supporter, I request that you assign WMS the exhibitor license and any other licenses that are required to operate in the manner they have been operating for the last 20 years, i.e. allowing visitors to tour the facility. This should also be done at no cost as WMS is not in the position to pay the exorbitant fees that you are requiring.

Thank you in advance for hearing and listening to all of the many, many supporters of Wolf Mountain Sanctuary.

Subject:  Proposed Regulation Section 681, Title 14, California Code of Regulations

Dear  :

I just received some rather alarming news concerning a proposed regulation for Section 681, Title 14, California Code of Regulations concerning hybrid animals and plants. First let me say I agree with the concept that regulations need to be in place for Fish And Game to regulate dangerous situations and need to close loopholes in the law.

I do however believe any proposed regulations concerning hybrid animals should regulate the humans that do not care for, treat, or breed these animals properly, not the animals themselves or the confiscation and destruction of these animals, nor effect the people who do care for, love and treat these animals properly and in a responsible manner.

As such I feel the proposed regulation is seriously flawed in that it is too wide sweeping and would be more detrimental than good. Though it may be true some unscrupulous people may for their own means try to get around proper care and treatment of animals by claiming exemption from current regulations by legal wrangling, the proposed regulation has not been properly thought out and would impact many people which do not condone such behavior and shun those who do, and the animals the responsible owners love.

This is mainly in dealing with wolfdogs, which are considered a domestic breed in other areas. These are not ferocious beast of myth, and as with any breed of dog, it is the actual owner/companion who raises the animal and care for the animal that influences the behavior and disposition of the animal. Wolfdogs, Akitas, German Shepards, Huskys, and good ol’ American mutts that may just look like “hybrids” and such do not have a predetermined disposition for violence or aggression, they start out the same as a Poodle, Terrier, Pomeranian or any other small domestic breed of dog.

The fear comes from the size of the animal compared to the smaller breeds and the myth surrounding actual wolves as being dangerous to humans which has no factual basis. After being around many of these creatures for years it is a fact they are actually fearful of humans, rightfully so, since we are the top predators on the planet and the most dangerous creatures on the planet.

 Just look at the matter being discussed here, we as humans are discussing the fate and possible murder of good animals that have done nothing wrong that we don’t even know, how barbaric and dangerous is that?

It is important to realize this legislation would be far wider sweeping than intended. The mere cost of finding these dogs, the cost of animal control to destroy them, the cost of housing the animals in shelters, the legal challenges including enforcing agencies to conduct DNA testing when challenged individually in court and court costs alone would be far more than the current operating budget of many counties. I personally can see those costs would be in six digit figures within a year. Did anybody doing research on the anticipated costs do any sort of thinking about all these costs? Or did they just think nobody would notice and wouldn’t fight any of this?

After reading the material it appears whomever put this proposed legislation together just put in the usual “no fiscal impact” answer to the questions without actually conducting any studies. Mere common sense would indicate severe fiscal impact for cities, counties and the State. I for one do not want my taxpayer dollars spent on this flawed legislation and the backlash if it actually is made into a regulation. What are we going to tell schoolchildren and their parents that don’t have the proper books; I’m sorry we could not provide the books for the children to read because we had to spend the money to destroy an animal that did not harm anybody but merely because of the way it looks? Maybe destroy that child’s cherished companion.

I for one would sue anybody and everybody responsible if my companion was confiscated and I know hundreds of others that would as well if their dogs were confiscated. Not to mention the toll and severe backlash on politicians that supported this legislation at the next election. If those politicians aspire to another term, or to move up in government public service they would face tremendous public disapproval.

Remember, good ol’ American mutts would fall into the “hybrid” category along with some pure breeds, this would mean the number of people affected by this flawed legislation would be in the hundreds of thousands in California alone, and there would be the support of millions around the planet. And that doesn’t even include the hybrid cat owners which themselves are in the tens of thousands. The Internet is a valuable resource for getting the word out about proposed legislation like this one, not only to those affected in California, but those with an interest around the World, and that has already started. The Husky rescue people, the German Shepard rescue people, the Akita rescue people, the Wolf rescue people, the Wolfdog rescue people, the Malamute rescue people, Samoyed rescue people and various hybrid cat rescue people and people rescuing regular American mutts and all their supporters. That is a huge amount of people to make angry for proposed legislation that is flawed and would not benefit society.

To many dog lovers it would be like taking their child and they would not give up without a fight, even many of those with the job of enforcing this legislation would not want to and would fight it. The numbers of people fighting this would be far more than the estimates you may have. This is something any city, county or state agency in California cannot afford in these economic times.

 Make no mistake, the legal implications alone would cause any of those entities to go bankrupt. I as a state employee sure would not want the State to go bankrupt, we already had the problems with vouchers earlier this year and the budget problems. But you better believe if it came down to my companion or my job, my companion would win out no contest.

 I already got support from many voters just from them reading this letter and they are willing to sign a petition to that extent with their home addresses, some don’t even have dogs.

 Are you willing to take personal responsibility for this seriously flawed legislation though you may not had fully written it? Are you personally willing to stand up and accept the blame for it when entities trying to enforce this proposed legislation lose money in trying to fight all the challenges and cover the overwhelming costs?

We cannot let a few immoral humans effect the lives of most by “rofiling” certain animals which start out naive and with a good disposition, creatures such as wolfdogs, Akitas, German Shepards, Malamutes, Huskys, American mutts etc. We have been fighting racial profiling in humans, fighting the human basic instinct of clannish behavior of “us” vs. “them” which leads to racial discrimination, leads to status discrimination, and leads to discrimination of other animal species. As with other predators there is competition of resources, yet predators are needed for life on this planet to survive, sharks are needed, bears are needed, wolves are needed, tigers are needed or life on this planet as we know it would drastically change for the worse, the resources of the planet could not provide enough for all animals, including humans, that are left.

Yet being the top predator gives us responsibilities we must not take lightly and has also given us a chance to interact with other species in unique ways, ways that shape their evolutionary path and change their dispositions and attributes. This interaction caused a close companionship to form between man and wolf that humans have with no other species. This companionship was and is so strong that we as humans began to modify the wolf, to mess with the genes, to mutate the wolf so as it can hardly be recognized from what it started out as, merely looking at a Pomeranian lap dog would give little to no indication it is closely related to a wolf.

Every breed of dog started out as a “hybrid” at one time or another, there was no Poodle and no Pomeranian, they were bred by humans by bringing two existing creatures together. We cannot let a far sweeping flawed regulation effect the bond between close companions, we already have far too many of those. An example is early legislation in some states of humans of different races who prefer to be intimately involved with those of a different race ie marriage. This is now considered by most to be illegal and flawed legislation.

Personally I do not want to prohibit the happiness of others for my own personal beliefs as long as they are not an immediate threat to my life and to those I care for deeply, I as an individual have no right to intrude and become a threat to their life and those they care for. If a person wants to raise a cow properly on their land outside of city limits, I don’t want to make them give up the animal just because I may take a drive by their place and the smell of manure may cause me to wrinkle my nose.

Many of us who love our 4 legged companions, and care for them deeply, raise them properly and care for them properly should not have to live in fear for our lives and the lives of our companions from the shortsightedness of some, or from myths that are not based on fact, but merely on fear. Wolfdogs may be considered a hybrid now, much like a Pomeranian was many years ago, but they have no predisposed nature to be vicious killing machines no more than human babies do, yet some humans do go on to become just that, as do some dogs of any breed due to being improperly cared for and raised. If regulations need to be passed it should be on the breeding and care of these animals by pertaining to the humans that are supposed to care for them. We as humans have taken the ability of wolves and dogs to survive on their own away, we have bred them to the point they need us to survive, they are no longer the respected hunters our ancestors admired and became so closely involved with. We have started down a path with this species so long ago they have become the closest of companions with us, they need us to provide for them, to care for them, to give them love and companionship, and many of us humans do just that. Our individual companions are family members and deeply integrated in our lives. To have them taken away and destroyed is like what is happening in wars on this planet where husbands and fathers are taken away in the night never to be seen by their families again, make no mistake the feelings and emotions are that intense.

I urge you to consider this proposed legislation for what it is, flawed, a wide sweeping profiling of animals that cannot speak for themselves, a genocide if you will of animals that we have helped make. Legislation is needed to give the Fish and Game authority to stop the humans that abuse these animals, that make them as mean and nasty as those individual humans themselves, just as unfit parents raise problem humans must be regulated. The animals themselves, the various breeds, the so called “hybrids” are not a danger, they are not inherently evil or vicious, they are the same as the small breeds which were at one time also “hybrids”. We as humans need them as they need us, they become family and cherished, for some they are sole companions and are a blessing.

Please do not let this flawed proposed regulation pass, it would cause far more harm than any good and would be detrimental to our society, not only here in California, but the rest of the Country and this planet. It would cause tension between hundreds of thousands of people, there would be legal battles. Politicians supporting this would lose support and their opponents would gain support, the court costs would be large on any scale, merely testing DNA of dogs for court challenges, of which there would be many, would be astronomical. Housing the dogs at a shelter would be more than most shelters’ current annual budget not to mention potential animal abuse of overcrowding, and any monetary losses to entities trying to enforce this would be disastrous. We already have enough of that happening as you can plainly see when reading the news.

Thank you for your time and patience.
Sincerely,

This companionship was and is so strong that we as humans began to modify the wolf, to mess with the genes, to mutate the wolf so as it can hardly be recognized from what it started out as, merely looking at a Pomeranian lap dog would give little to no indication it is closely related to a wolf.

Every breed of dog started out as a “hybrid” at one time or another, there was no Poodle and no Pomeranian, they were bred by humans by bringing two existing creatures together. We cannot let a far sweeping flawed regulation effect the bond between close companions, we already have far too many of those. An example is early legislation in some states of humans of different races who prefer to be intimately involved with those of a different race ie marriage. This is now considered by most to be illegal and flawed legislation.

Personally I do not want to prohibit the happiness of others for my own personal beliefs as long as they are not an immediate threat to my life and to those I care for deeply, I as an individual have no right to intrude and become a threat to their life and those they care for. If a person wants to raise a cow properly on their land outside of city limits, I don’t want to make them give up the animal just because I may take a drive by their place and the smell of manure may cause me to wrinkle my nose.

Many of us who love our 4 legged companions, and care for them deeply, raise them properly and care for them properly should not have to live in fear for our lives and the lives of our companions from the shortsightedness of some, or from myths that are not based on fact, but merely on fear. Wolfdogs may be considered a hybrid now, much like a Pomeranian was many years ago, but they have no predisposed nature to be vicious killing machines no more than human babies do, yet some humans do go on to become just that, as do some dogs of any breed due to being improperly cared for and raised. If regulations need to be passed it should be on the breeding and care of these animals by pertaining to the humans that are supposed to care for them. We as humans have taken the ability of wolves and dogs to survive on their own away, we have bred them to the point they need us to survive, they are no longer the respected hunters our ancestors admired and became so closely involved with. We have started down a path with this species so long ago they have become the closest of companions with us, they need us to provide for them, to care for them, to give them love and companionship, and many of us humans do just that. Our individual companions are family members and deeply integrated in our lives. To have them taken away and destroyed is like what is happening in wars on this planet where husbands and fathers are taken away in the night never to be seen by their families again, make no mistake the feelings and emotions are that intense.

I urge you to consider this proposed legislation for what it is, flawed, a wide sweeping profiling of animals that cannot speak for themselves, a genocide if you will of animals that we have helped make. Legislation is needed to give the Fish and Game authority to stop the humans that abuse these animals, that make them as mean and nasty as those individual humans themselves, just as unfit parents raise problem humans must be regulated. The animals themselves, the various breeds, the so called “hybrids” are not a danger, they are not inherently evil or vicious, they are the same as the small breeds which were at one time also “hybrids”. We as humans need them as they need us, they become family and cherished, for some they are sole companions and are a blessing.

Please do not let this flawed proposed regulation pass, it would cause far more harm than any good and would be detrimental to our society, not only here in California, but the rest of the Country and this planet. It would cause tension between hundreds of thousands of people, there would be legal battles. Politicians supporting this would lose support and their opponents would gain support, the court costs would be large on any scale, merely testing DNA of dogs for court challenges, of which there would be many, would be astronomical. Housing the dogs at a shelter would be more than most shelters’ current annual budget not to mention potential animal abuse of overcrowding, and any monetary losses to entities trying to enforce this would be disastrous. We already have enough of that happening as you can plainly see when reading the news.

Thank you for your time and patience.
Sincerely,

A few minutes ago, a precious member of our pack left this earth.

 

Sedona had a cist on his elbow which was due to be removed next week.  He chewed thru it and ruptured an artery.

 

Sedona was rushed to the emergency room in Big Bear after an extremely hard feat of moving him, he was very vicious and they lost precious time trying to get him loaded with him fighting them.

 

He got to the hospital before he moved on but he had lost too much blood.

 

Please send your condolences to Tonya, she is heart broken.
