Miss Madge has been URGENT since June and still needs someone to help!!!

She is at a boarding kennel again after her foster moved and she is going nuts!!!

This is Madge, who we’re now referring to as “Miracle Madge.” With the help of some awesome volunteers at literally the last minute, she was pulled in May from a Maryland shelter where her time was up.  After meeting her in person, we were actually surprised she was given the time she was at her shelter. Though she’s sweet as pie, Madge looks like she’s been through hell and back in her short 3 year life.  Through all of her nightmarish past, Madge stands strong and is just a delight to be around.
She’s got a gorgeous smile that’s so completely full of life, you can’t help but smile when you are around her.
She seriously enjoys the company of people and adores the attention she receives. 
She’s has successful met other dogs (which she completely ignored).
She is not good with young children (that is why her most recent adoption fell through).
Her previous and VERY kind last foster set Madge up with a Banfield account so she can continue to get the medical care she needs. But that foster moved and poor Madge had to go back to boarding.  Madge has had a very rough life and she still has a long journey to go, but we know there is a special someone out there to help her along the way. Please share her story and message caninenation.org to help! Shes currently in NJ and needs a miracle now!

Thank you!  Let’s get Madge out of boarding and into a foster home today!

Please remember that all pets need loving homes.  Foster or forever – you can help today.  All of us at DogDaz Zoo Thank You!  We rescued Mommy, maybe some animal can rescue you!!

DogDaz Feral Friday: Black Animals Are The Last Adopted

ff 8.1.14

Not sure why people fear black animals, but we know they do.  I never would have gone out to adopt a black dog if a local rescue group didn’t introduce us to this fearful little 4 month old black dog covered with demodex mange, scars, and a collar embedded in her little nexk.  I can not image life without Louise now.

“Thanks, Mom, I can’t imagine life without you either. Adopt a human today!” – Louise (aka Lulu Belle)

DogDaz Feral Friday: Ear-Tipping or Notching

Graphic from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Barrington-Partnership-for-Animal-Welfare/148357895212000

I felt like starting something new to help the strays.  I am calling it Feral Friday.  I stole the idea from Jackson Galaxy.

I can not imagine a life without cats.

13 Creative Ways to Help Animal Shelters You Probably Didn’t Know

shelter dog

Wendy Frink

1. Transport animals. Dogs can’t drive, so they need someone to take them places. And sometimes that drive can be a long one. Volunteer to take a dog to its foster home or forever home. Sometimes it can be a couple hours or just a leg in an eight hour drive. For those in cities where the main mode of transportation is bus or train, this is especially helpful.

 

2. Dust off that sewing machine. If you can sew a straight stitch, you can help! Follow thistutorial on how to make a bed from an old sweater. Or help sew “privacy curtains” for shy animals. Check with your local shelter to see if they need anything.

3. Take photos. Whether you are a professional or amateur photographer, shelters and rescues can benefit immensely from great photography. So grab your camera, some props and get those dogs out of their kennels. You can even hold photography workshops for shelter volunteers so they can take the best photos of their animals as possible. If you’re feeling very generous, donate old camera equipment to a shelter.

4. Spring clean. Donate towels and sheets you don’t use anymore. Shelters are always in need. Bonus points for gently used beds, collars, leashes and clothing.

5. Go shopping. Find out what your favorite shelter or rescue needs. It could be leashes, food, or cleaning supplies. Use sites like Amazon or Wag and send the donation directly to them.

6. Submit a pup-related cause to BarkFund or sign a shelter up for the Bark & Co. shelter and rescue program. Recently Bark & Co. started a program called “BarkFund” where we give out grants to a different dog in need each week. There’s also our shelter and rescue initiative where we have different campaigns where we donate 10% of profits to pups in need.

7. Throw a party! Lenny the pug throws a birthday party every year. He asks for donations or gifts like harnesses, eye drops, etc for his pug friends at Curly Tail Pug Rescue. If you throw your kid(s) a birthday party, ask for dog beds, blankets or collars instead (clear this with your kid!)

8. Get creative. Lend your graphic design, coding or writing skills to help with a shelter’s website, social media or newsletter efforts. Running a shelter takes a lot of work and things like this are often put on the back burner.

9. Social good. Use social media to get the word out. Share tweets or postings about missing animals or an animal that needs a home. Hamilton Pug will put up a custom message in exchange for a donation to pug rescue and The Bumblesnot runs his own Zazzle shop and donates all the proceeds to shelters and rescues.

 

10. Bookkeeping. Are you an accountant that can help a shelter or rescue with their books? Experience in non-profits is especially helpful.

11. Foster. Do you have room for a temporary pet? Fostering can be fun, rewarding and challenging. By opening your home to a dog, you are opening up a spot in a shelter that otherwise wouldn’t exist. The length of a foster can be a couple of days, weeks or months. Every shelter is different, but they usually cover medical expenses and sometimes food and supplies. Click here for more information on fostering.

12. Grab a hammer. If you’re handy at all, you can help by making repairs, painting or building furniture for the animals.

13. Donate funds. Shelters and rescues could always use more money.

Any other ideas, be sure to add in the comments! ❤

Breed Specific Discrimination: Did you write your letter yet?

Did you write your letter yet?

http://stopbsl.org/category/state-specific/maryland/

stopbsl-header-3-18-11_alte

————————————————————————————————–

Here’s the response I got:

Thank you for your letter, this does concern me. My family includes a very sweet American Staffordshire Terrier (some call him a pit bull) named Winston. Like you, I have worked very hard to ensure the safety of people and animals/pets. The pet and dog owners should be responsible for their pet not others like landlords. My goal is safety first and foremost.

You have my firm commitment that I will continue to work to protect animals and people from irresponsible pet owners and ineffective legislation.

Warm regards,
Herb

—–Original Message—–
To: McMillan, Herb Delegate
Subject: Support SB 247/HB 73: Compromise legislation for Maryland dogs and families

Feb 6, 2014

Delegate Herbert McMillan
Lowe House Office Building, Room 217
6 Bladen Street
Annapolis, MD 21401-1912

Dear Delegate McMillan,

Last year, I was disappointed that the General Assembly failed to come to an agreement to address the unintended consequences of the Court of Appeals ruling that “pit bulls” are “inherently dangerous.” This year, as your constituent, I urge you to support compromise legislation (SB 247/HB 73) that has been carefully crafted by leaders in the House and Senate.

SB 247/HB 73 will remove the breed specific standard imposed by the Court of Appeals, remove the strict liability imposed on landlords and other third parties, and will instead raise the bar for ALL dog owners, regardless of the breed of their dog. This is a fair compromise for both dog owners and victims.

This ruling has forced law-abiding dog owners to choose between their dogs and their homes, and it cannot be allowed to stand for another year. I implore you to support SB 247/HB 73 to provide some relief for the thousands of Marylanders impacted by this decision. Please support this legislation WITH NO AMENDMENTS.

Sincerely,

Ms. Lorian Lipton
