The Mission

Being an animal lover my whole life, my hope is to do my part in raising awareness on the issue of animal homelessness and to give back to my community.....

How to tell the difference between a stray and feral cat and help them survive - from The Animal Rescue Site -

Hello and hoping everyone is keeping warm!  Especially hoping all the stray and feral kitties have as safe and as warm as possible of a place to take cover!  With weather that we are having this winter and every winter my heart breaks thinking of all the homeless animals.  I only wish I could help them all and try to do all that I can within my ability.  If we all could do just one small act of kindness, maybe we can slowly change the lives of the homeless animals.  As important is to educate all the pet owners that all their pet children need to be spayed or neutered and that their pet children are part of their family forever.  If a difficult financial situation should occur, please never abandon your pet children. They love and depend on you so please do your research and find an organization that can help. There are many out there, as difficult as they can be to locate, but please do not give up and keep researching.  As we know there is Facebook and many other social sites to reach out too as well.  Thank goodness for the many organizations that are making such strides in changing the way of the world and how they look at these poor homeless animals.  I applaud and support them! I am glad to say I am trying to do my part too!

I will work on posting a list of links and organizations that anyone in need can reach out to.  Stay tuned and give me a bit to work on.......

Dorie ~ Before and After

Finally Dorie is now living in a warm and cozy home.  She always had food and interaction where she lived her homeless life at the Kings Park Psychiatric Center. I would always be there every day as well as the original feeder of the few cat colonies living in this Center.  However whenever there was bad weather and the cold it always broke my heart.  After many, many months of winning her trust and having her get use to the transfer carrier, on the day of the Blizzard (1.26.15) as the storm started to pick up steam, I drove over and scooped her up.  Dorie came running for her feeding and meowing loudly as she usually did in bad weather.  I opened the carrier, placed dry food in, picked her up and placed her in.  As she started to eat I quickly closed the cover!  She of course cried all the way home but I knew it was best.

Funny though the two sisters did not recognize each other.  The story of  SuzieQ can be found at the following links; Story of Dorie and SuzieQ
