Save the Shelter Animals

Stop the Killing

By Diane Robertson
08/23/2013
 In 2012 alone, at one shelter in California (San Bernadino City Animal Shelter), 10,000 animals were killed or died at the shelter.
  • Please adopt from local rescue groups so we can continue to save animals from this and many, many, many other animal shelters across the state.
  • Please spay or neuter your pets to reduce the unwanted and homeless pets in our shelters being murdered everyday.
  • Please vaccinate the pets you do have to keep them healthy.

Please stop the killing.  It’s up to each of us to do our part to stop the killing.

You can also foster animals from your local shelter or rescue group.

You can also volunteer at your local shelter or rescue group.

You can also donate to your local shelter or rescue group.

Ashe County commissioners to vote on gas chamber use

So one commissioner has changed his mind but others are still holding out?  I’m appalled that we are killing at all let alone via gas chambers! 

I Need Your Support, PLEASE

Strut Your Mutt Campaign

StrutBanner1

Supporting Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode’s Strut Your Mutt fundraiser is a good idea.   Here is just a small reminder of why so many support us with their time, talent and financial support:

  • Animal  Outreach (AO) provides FREE feral cat spay and neuter services.
  • AO provides low-cost spay and neuter services for dogs and cats.
    • AO reduces the number of unwanted cats and dogs in El Dorado county by thousands and thousands every year! Last year, AO performed over 7,300 spay and neuter procedures.  Wow!  Each procedure requires an experienced vet and many support staff to handle the appointments, paperwork, surgery preparation, recovery and release as well as medications.  This is an expensive procedure that AO provides either free or at a minimal cost.
  • AO provides affordable, no appointment necessary, walk-in vaccination services.
  • AO rescues dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in California and works with the local shelter to help with their over flow of dogs, cats, kittens and puppies.
    • Providing a temporary home and medical care for homeless pets allows these animals the time and care they need to find their permanent homes.  Thousands of animals are saved from death, every year, by the hard-working, caring folks at Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode.

Animal Outreach is competing against 75 other SPCA’s, shelters and rescue groups across America for the top prize of The Golden Bone awardThe Golden Bone award goes to the group that raises the most money in this Strut Your Mutt campaign that ends in September.  You, our supporters, can show the entire country that we have the best supporters by doing well in this competition.  This would be a fantastic award and would allow AO to strut our stuff all over TV and newspapers! This award will help raise awareness of the problem of homeless animals everywhere as well as the needs in our community.

The most money raised by the participating groups,  so far,  is just over $6,000.  The AO Strut Your Mutt Team goal is only $5,000.  However, with your help,  the team could easily meet or exceed that goal and capture the coveted Golden Bone award.

There is another award up for grabs, The Golden Collar Award.  This award is  for the person who raises the most money overall.  This would be another great achievement that you or one of our current team members could win.

Let’s Do It!

What You Can Do To Help…

It takes a lot of money, donations and volunteers to keep this organization and its programs running. Thank you on behalf of all the dogs, cats, kittens and puppies whose lives are touched and saved because of generous supporters like you!
