Emergency dog foster home needed in California! Please help! »
On Sunday, this dog was found on a lonely country road near Stockton. She was half-starved and covered in fleas; swimming in a muddy irrigation canal. She was rescued by the kind-hearted folks at Harvest Home Sanctuary, where they cleaned her up and named her Lydia. They’d keep her and adopt her out but the issue is, she’s not great with small animals, and they’ve got a lot of small animals. Plus, they are just overwhelmed and need our help. Lydia’s in need of training but she’s receptive and already knows how to sit. Smart girl!
They need a foster home or adoption miracle right now like never before! These are the people who step up to rescue animals ALL THE TIME, animals that society has neglected and thrown out, and they need our help! There has to be SOMEONE out there who can take Lydia in and show her some love?
If you think you’re up to task, please please please email firstname.lastname@example.org TODAY! She only has a couple days and they are desperate for a good home. Save Lydia!!!
And if you do foster her but can’t adopt, I can promise you that we will feature her on Vegansaurus EVERY WEEK until she has a new home. Seriously, we will get her forever home in no time! She just needs a safe house until then! Or maybe you are that forever home? LOOK AT THAT FACE LET”S GIVE HER ALL THE KISSES.
In Hurricane Sandy’s path? Here’s what to do if you have pets! »
HSUS has a great post with everything to do, check it out.
Things you can do right now:
- Put a collar with visible identification on your pets, including indoor-only pets
- Keep pictures of your pets on hand for identification purposes. Ideally, you should also be in the photo
- Create a pet emergency kit (see below) and refresh the items every few months
- Talk to your neighbors about how they can help your pets if you are not at home when disaster strikes
- Create a list of hotels that allow pets
- Plan on evacuating about 100 miles inland
This emergency supply kit should include:
- Three-or-more-day supply of food in airtight, waterproof container, and drinking water
- Bowls for food and water
- Current photos and physical description of your pets, including details on markings
- Medications, vaccination records and pet first aid supplies
- Comfort items such as a toy and blanket
- Small garbage bags
- For dogs include: leash, harness and a sturdy carrier large enough to use as a sleeping area

Stay safe, East Coast humans and other animals!!

The 4,460 hens rescued from the 50,000 hens left to starve in Stanislaus County—the Turlock Hen Rescue—still need our help. What can you do? Go shopping! Food Fight Grocery and some other fine retailers are going to be donating a portion of their sales on these specific days:

If you were planning to place an order, please do it on Saturday, and if you don’t need anything, maybe go here and donate directly.
If you can’t spend any money right now, then please spread the word about these fundraisers and about the rescue.
And don’t forget to sign the petition started by Harvest Home to bring the man responsible for this catastrophe to justice.
