Please help us become one of the benefactors of John Gray’s book $!!
We would truly appreciate it.

* GO TO THE LINK TO COMMENT, and not on our post!!😊

* You will need to mention our name & website address:

Thank you. ❤️
(Please share)

I just received a sizable check for book sales which means I will be giving the money away, $2,600, to animal shelters around the country.
Under this photo in the comments section leave me the name & website of any shelter you would like me to consider for a donation. Since last fall I have helped about 20 so far in 8 states. The money goes to pay for food, surgeries and adoption fees of needy pets.
If you are new to this page and have no clue what I’m talking about... I wrote a children’s book to help a child over the loss of a pet. It’s called ‘God Needed A Puppy’

And I am donating the proceeds to shelters.

Let me know who you want me to help ❤️.

NEEDED: XL Havahart trap.

We were asked to post a missing dog, Baby, almost a week ago. She’s been seen b/w locations in close proximity to each other in Hoosick Falls. The family has one trap but a second one is needed.

Can anyone help us out?

Please PM us asap! Time is of the essence.

Thank you. Please SHARE!

On this heartfelt holiday of Valentine’s Day ❤️ it’s apropos to give our deepest gratitude to an amazing group of colleagues who came together the last few weeks for two of our most difficult rescues. The dream of building a coalition where fellow rescuers can count on each other for the greater good of helping animals certainly came true.
It has been our honor to work with
Cody Wasial from CCP, Melinda from TASP, Todd’s team from MHHS, the council of the Albany Co DA’s animal cruelty TASK force, the West Mountain Animal Hospital... along with the conversations and council of Mary C Daley ,Deb D’Angelo and Kate Gemisel.
We made 5 calls for help and received twice as many in return...
