Increase Adoptions with Better Animal Bios — Animal Welfare Guardian

Animals – dogs, cats, rabbits, and horses – are taken in by animal shelters and rescues every day. Often times they come from unfortunate situations. Sometimes they come from amazing homes and families but uncontrollable circumstances arise forcing the family to give the animal up. No matter what their history consists of – they are […]

Pardon Information

What is a Shane’s War PARDON?  It is a week-long and sometimes longer Adoption event where we ask the Government , the Police , the Media and the citizens to all put their differences aside for the animals.  The word Pardon does not imply the animals did anything wrong; it is simply our attempt to save them from certain Death.  After the pardons end, we stay in touch with the citizens in these towns to help network the animals.

When we came up with the Pardon idea, we had no idea if it would work or not.  We have had people who were long time enemies working together for some of these.  As long as they are in need, we will try to help.  When we go to a shelter for the first time, we visit every animal. We love them all, we travel under no banner of any national group, we are just Citizens helping the animals, our partners are different everywhere we go.   Do we offer training to staff at shelters? No.  If we see common sense things that will help, of course we speak up.  Our mission is to get animals out of harms way, any citizen is welcome to sign the pardon in a town we are in (Shane).

The following pardons have been completed and more are lined up:

  • DowneyPardon | Downey, CA | April-May 2016
  • GurdonPardon |Gurdon, Arkansas | March-April 2016
  • California City Pardon | California City, CA | April – May 2015

Gates of Heaven

Searching for a Jawline

Gates of HeavenOne of the summers I worked at camp I had a camper ask me if I thought people’s pets went to heaven. It was a serious question. He asked me at a time when no one else was around. He looked me in the eye and almost whispered it. I told him I didn’t know and asked what he thought. He told me that he thought they did. He told me if heaven was perfect then there was no way his dog wouldn’t be there as he loved his dog. It didn’t make sense for his dog not to be there. I told him that sounded good to me and that I agreed.

Gates of Heaven is an entire movie of people talking about dead pets. I’ve watched it numerous times and have no idea whether it is a comedy, drama, or something else entirely. What I do know is…

Saving Shelter Cat Lives

maddiesFund

One of my favorite non-profit groups, Maddie’s Fund (www.maddiesfund.org), is conducting a series of webcasts on saving shelter cat lives.  According to their website, from April 7, 2015 to May 5, 2015, they are conducting a 5-part series on the key initiatives of the “Million Cat Challenge”.  They are focusing on ACTIONABLE tools and tips that the shelter and rescue community can use to save lives.

Maddie’s Fund is an incredible source of valuable educational material for shelters and rescue groups relating to cats, dogs and other pets.  I encourage everyone in the field to visit their website and checkout the material available.

Until the next time, I wish you success in saving lives and improving your programs.

How to Start a Animal Food Bank

Animal Welfare Guardian

There’s nothing that takes a greater toll on pet owners than realizing they can’t afford to feed their pets. Animal food banks are a great way to make sure the pets continue to get the proper nutrition while the pet owners work to get back on their feet.
If you want to help local pets by creating an animal food bank, you’ll be pleased to know the process isn’t terribly difficult.
Create a Business Plan
You might be starting the animal food bank out of the kindness of your heart, you still need to approach it the same way you would any other business which means you’ll need a business plan. Not only will the business plan help you address issues such as how to market the animal food bank and where you’ll store supplies but it also allows you to apply for non-profit certification and approach people and businesses…
