She has many for adoption and is losing her best foster mom, who is moving. So if you can't adopt, please consider fostering. She even has PUPPIES !! A pregnant mom she took in had babies, and she still has them.
Tuesday, November 1st begins National Adopt a Senior Month. Although I believe any adoption from a shelter is the correct way to go, senior animals have my heart.

I have said in this blog over and over: before you contribute to any group, check them out. Check out there finances and if possible, go and visit. Find out where your donations, whether monetary or otherwise is going.
When I read this story I was disgusted. Human beings who would stoop so low as to take in animals under the pretext of being a rescue to solicit money and then allowing them to starve to death under your care is the height of irresponsibility and we won't get into the ethical side.
So once again I will remind everyone to check out whatever rescue group you would like to become a part of. If it is a 501(c)3, it will be registered with the state, who keeps track of these things. No legitimate rescue will mind if you see what they do.
Check it out here.

So this column, in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune really caught my eye. I had never even though about the runoff from rain and the environmental impact this could have. So now I will be even more vigilant in keeping the yard clean. Can I drop off a copy of this to my neighbors or do you think it will start a neighborhood war?

Wilbur is very athletic and active and is fond of long hikes. He also adores endless games of fetch -- your arm will wear out before he does! He's not always on the go, though -- Wilbur enjoys cuddling and scratches. He loves all people and not realizing he weighs a little more than 5 pounds, would love to crawl up in your lap for belly rubs.
He truly enjoys all the volunteers who come to the sanctuary. He even has a bit of a fan club. Wilbur gets along just fine with some female dogs, and is hoping that somebody out there will become more than a fan - he's hoping somebody will become family.
This particular conversation was on profiling and after my friend finished telling a particular story which had happened to him, he turned to me and asked, "You do think profiling is okay, right?" When I responded in the negative he seemed to take offense I would disagree. Now, I know these officers see the worst of the worst, but I still believe profiling is wrong.
As I was relaying this conversation to another conservative friend of mine, she said, "I believe in profiling. I think it keeps us safe."
She did think that until I compared what profiling does to man, BSL does to dogs. I would never, ever believe we should punish a particular breed of dog simply due to the breed, on the actions of one dog.
If a dog is a danger, note it as such and conduct yourself accordingly. Don't punish the dog simply on the basis of what one government or one neighbor has to say.
We in the animal community must continue to fight BSL with everything we have. So far in the state only one county, Dade, has BSL. This does not mean communities aren't still trying to ban certain breeds of dogs. They can't due to Florida's consititution and Dade was grandfathered in.
We are still fighting apartment complexes and insurance companies, though. The main reason we are fighting apartment complexes is due to insurance coverage.
So explain to me how I pay an insurance company scads of money each year for coverage, they can cancel me at any time, I have never filed any kind of claim, but they can tell me which breed of dog I can have. I think not. My homeowner's insurance now does not cover dogs at all. Any dogs. If one of my dogs bites someone, I will be footing the bill. The average payout in a dog bite situation is $10,000.
So I will continue to adopt any breed of dog I like, fight insurance companies tooth and nail to change policy, write my representative to make sure the laws are not overturned and educate people about BSL. I imagine all my dead relatives rolling over in their graves because of the amount of control we allow the government, local, state and federal, using fear as a factor, in dealing with our personal lives even down to the breed of dog we own. Pretty sad when you come to think about it.

He is at ACPS in Jax, FL and needs rescue soon! June says he is a sweet loving boy. Look at that face! If you know any one taking small seniors, or any group at all that may take a chance on him, please crosspost this email to them. Thanks!

This big girl was found by a friend of mine, she has a micro-chip but the number is no longer working.. She had a collar that was cutting into her neck and attached to that was wire..
And although many more once lived across the region, today only between 100-160 exist in the wild.

GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS AND KIDS
October 29, Volunteers & adopters needed!
You can literally save an animals life by PASSING this email, or printing up the beautiful flyer and posting, or volunteering that day or adopting ! There will be reduced rates on the cats & dogs.
My name is Holly. I am a 1 1/2 year old, spayed, housebroken, female, Catahoula/Bulldog mix.
I am very stressed from being at the shelter for too long. I think people overlook me when they walk by because sometimes I bark at them. It's just because I want to get out and play.
When it's my turn to get out for a walk, I am very excited at first, but once my walker and I get outside and away from the shelter, I settle down and walk nicely on the leash. I am playful in the yard and love to play a good game of "hide and seek" with my dog walker. Once I get tired out though, I love to cuddle up and have my ears and tummy rubbed. I would prefer to be the only dog in the house and I can't help it, but I just don't like cats!
Please come visit me at the shelter and give me a chance to get to know you.
