Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

All Good News!

So much good news tonight that I must do an extra post!

First, I've been waiting patiently to announce this. We don't like to say these things too soon because we never want to jinx ourselves, or worse, the dog.

Read the story; you'll be glad you did. I will add only that Maybelle was with us for so long that she had developed kennel callus.  That is, she stood on cement for so long that she had tough spots on her feet. Sad; occasionally they would get infected and she'd have a little trouble walking or be uncomfortable. She'd be treated immediately (and taken special care of by Darlene, shelter worker extraordinaire), but still, this one really deserved a home.

Here's the picture of Maybelle and her new family. God bless them!


Also, I got word that Mitzi and Coco, both adopted last week, along with Sandee (aka Floppy Ear) the week before, are all doing well. This week Scout and Baxter are being adopted.  Yahoo!

Here are the lucky babies:



and Baxter (Sweet boy!)

Also, tomorrow morning we are announcing a BIG GIFT made to the
Yonkers Animal Shelter!

Stay tuned...
