Tuesday’s Tails Blog Hop: Hank & Moose (Update on Madge)

So glad you are joining me today for the Dogs N Pawz Blog Hop called Tuesday’s Tails!  New posts go up on Tuesday but you can link up and post when you want all week-long.  The whole purpose is to feature cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, etc. so when you link up is up to you!  Even pets from PetFinder, are fine.  Let’s just get them all homes!

Dogs N Pawz said “I also want to encourage all of you to share each other’s Tuesday’s Tails posts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and whatever other social media channels you use.  The more we share the more likely we are to get the word out!”

Please remember that all pets need loving homes.  And all homes NEED a dog.

Late addition to post: Many of you have seen Madge’s face here for a few months now and are familiar with her story. Unfortunately, this might be her very last pleas for help unless someone can help Canine Nation change Madge’s situation for the better. Madge has been kenneled altogether for over three months now and is completely miserable. In her time with Canine Nation, she’s sadly spent a majority of her time in a cage at various facilities and because of this her separation anxiety has worsened as well as her fear and defensive behavior with other dogs. She has gone absolutely kennel crazy and barks constantly, pacing day in and day out. It is obvious she cannot continue the path she is on now. This is their last plea for help for Madge as they have run out of options and funding and are desperately in need of a foster. Madge craves attention and human interaction as any dog, especially a previous abuse case, does. Madge needs the help from a loving, patient home now more than ever. She cannot make it further without your help. Please email caninenation@gmail.com ASAP if you can help. Madge needs your help today!

Tuesday’s Tails Blog Hop: Ways You Can Help

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! ❤

Monday Mischief: Osprey Win Back The Nest!

Osprey Collage 2014

Remember last week I was worried about the Bald Eagles that were on the Osprey platform.  I was worried that we were going to have a turf war over the nest.  But, looks like the Osprey family has returned and there is no sign of the Eagles.  This means, even though it is rain/snowing outside right now, spring has come to the Mid-Atlantic.  Now if only the temperature would follow.

Happy Monday!  What Mischief are you getting in to?

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
Delegate Herb McMillan
District 30
164 House Office Building
Annapolis, MD 21401
Phone: (410) 841-3211

—–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
