HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) – Volunteers from Ismaili CIVIC and the International Rescue Committee have collected donations from the community to help Afghan refugees resettle in Richmond.

On Sunday afternoon, volunteers set up drive-through donation stations to give people the chance to drop off a variety of items, including clothing, appliances, toiletries and school supplies.

Rhonda Coury put down pots and pans, blankets and laundry detergent to lend a hand.

“I think it’s very important as a community to help our neighbors,” she said. “I can’t imagine myself coming here with nothing at all, so I thought it was very important to help them.”

As the donations were dropped off, the volunteers sorted and packed the items to be loaded onto a truck.

Hadi Merchant, a member of the Shia Ismaili Muslim community in Richmond, says this work is their privilege.

“Within the framework of the ethics and principles of our faith, we believe it is our duty to lend a hand in the resettlement of refugees,” he said.

Merchant also says this donation campaign is an important part of his work to give back to his community.

“We see this as our privilege and our duty not only for refugees, but also for underserved communities,” said Merchant. “We want to elevate the status of humans so that they can live with dignity.”

Donations will go to the office of the International Rescue Committee. From there, the items will be sorted and distributed to Afghan refugees resettled in Richmond.

A rescue center overwhelmed with dogs who “don’t know what they’ve done wrong” https://owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/a-rescue-center-overwhelmed-with-dogs-who-dont-know-what-theyve-done-wrong/ Sun, 19 Sep 2021 08:55:13 +0000 https://owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/a-rescue-center-overwhelmed-with-dogs-who-dont-know-what-theyve-done-wrong/ A rescue center has issued an urgent appeal for donations from the public, as an increase in the number of dogs with behavioral problems transmitted by several owners has put it “under more pressure than ever”. 8 Below Husky Rescue, based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, hit capacity with their kennel bill last month reaching over […]]]>

A rescue center has issued an urgent appeal for donations from the public, as an increase in the number of dogs with behavioral problems transmitted by several owners has put it “under more pressure than ever”.

8 Below Husky Rescue, based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, hit capacity with their kennel bill last month reaching over £ 2,000.

Simon Prosser, 52, a project manager who works as a permanent volunteer at 8 Below Husky Rescue, told TeamDogs: “We went through a period where we didn’t have the expected increase in abandoned pups last year. , because rescues, the owners passed them on or sold them to different people.

“So a lot of the dogs we’ve rescued over the past 18 months had multiple owners. It’s very confusing for the dogs because they don’t know what they’ve done wrong.

“Some of the dogs that have recently been transferred to us may only stay in a house for a few weeks, and then they go away again and again.

“It has left a lot of them with behavioral issues, and it takes more resources and time to rehabilitate them. “

The rescue recently rehabilitated a severely arrested dog named Felix, who arrived at the kennel in a frightened state.

Simon said: “It’s so closed he would just sit in a corner, panting with his head and tail down. He came to see me for rehabilitation. When I picked him up to carry him with the car to my house, he was so scared he pissed on me.

“We worked with him for 10 weeks, desensitizing him and helping him overcome his confidence issues, and now he’s a really happy and loving dog.

“This level of rehabilitation takes five times longer than usual, as well as more resources, but we haven’t increased our adoption costs. This is what put enormous financial pressure on the rescue.

Adoption fees for a puppy under one year old are £ 250 and £ 200 for a dog over five, meaning the kennel must cover the extra costs for any dog ​​that remains to the rescue for more than a month.

TeamDogs is a community for dog lovers who want to make the most of their relationship with their best friend.

Make sharing the cutest photos of your dog your first website job and after that leave a tip to help other dog owners live their best lives as a proud dog parent.

Search over hundreds of recommended walks, treats, toys, and places to stay when you go on an adventure together.

From dog-friendly ads to product reviews and breaking news, you can smell it all on TeamDogs.

On top of these standard costs, the vet’s bill could result in rescue expenses of up to £ 228 for a dog in need of spaying (£ 150), vaccination (£ 58) and a deworming and flea treatment (£ 20).

8 Below Husky Rescue still calls on public donations continue their rehabilitation work on dogs with behavioral problems.

Give Good For Louisville To Help Support The Floyd County Animal Rescue League, Others | New https://owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/give-good-for-louisville-to-help-support-the-floyd-county-animal-rescue-league-others-new/ Thu, 16 Sep 2021 22:57:01 +0000 https://owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/give-good-for-louisville-to-help-support-the-floyd-county-animal-rescue-league-others-new/ FLOYD COUNTY – For more than 40 years, the Floyd County Animal Rescue League has helped Floyd County animals and their families when they need it most.

FLOYD COUNTY – For more than 40 years, the Floyd County Animal Rescue League has helped Floyd County animals and their families when they need it most.

But like so many other organizations, the past year and a half has been difficult as staff have seen both needs increase and sources of donation decrease.

Kate Muss, director of the Rescue League, said donations during the COVID-19 pandemic fell by almost half. This is mainly because a lot of those dollars usually come from events like the annual gala, which had to be canceled last year and this year, and animal photos with Santa Claus, which didn’t have take place in 2020.

“So donations have really gone down, but the need to help the animals and support the people of Floyd County has definitely increased over the past year,” Muss said.

Over the past year, the Lifesaving League has given 460 families $ 100 vouchers to help sterilize their animals, and has issued more than 350 medical vouchers valued at $ 100 for families in need. help with sudden and unexpected medical bills for their pets.

They also launched a program to help those affected by the pandemic, whether it be a job loss or other circumstances, with $ 25 gift cards to Feeders Supply “to help cover a little. the cost of feeding their animals rather than handing them over to the shelter, “Muss said.

To compound the problem, Muss said many vets were unable to perform sterilization or sterilization procedures at the start of the pandemic, due to the shortage of personal protective equipment needed in hospitals.

“So we turned our wheels trying to fix as many animals as possible,” she said.

The Rescue League is also a major supporter of the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Shelter, whose manager David Hall said sees between 2,500 and 3,000 cats and dogs in any given year. The Rescue League helps cover the cost of testing supplies, vaccinations, spaying and sterilized surgery, and assistance with foster care and rescue of the breed.

Community members can help give back to the Lifesaving League in a special way this weekend. The Floyd County Animal Rescue League is one of 550 organizations in southern Indiana and Louisville participating in Give Good For Louisville, an online fundraising event hosted by the Community Foundation of Louisville that starts at 12:01 a.m. Friday and ends on weekends. , with many prizes available to donors.

Other Southern Indiana organizations included are the Carnegie Center for Art and History and Hope Southern Indiana.

To donate to the Floyd County Animal Rescue League during Give Good For Louisville, visit www.floydcountyanimals.org or the host site www.GiveGoodForLouisville.org.

“We are delighted to welcome Give for Good Louisville again – it truly unites our entire community to support the organizations that connect us and guide us towards a better future for all,” Ron Gallo, President and CEO of the Community Louisville Foundation said in a press release.

“These organizations lift us up in difficult times and move us forward when we need change. Give for Good Louisville is the perfect opportunity to show our thanks for the work they do to make our community a better place for everyone.

Muss said she also realizes that not everyone is in a good financial position to donate money right now, but there are other ways to help. They accept aluminum cans at the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Shelter at 215 W. Market St., New Albany.

Kroger Plus card holders can also sign up for a percentage of the funds to go to the Lifesaving League every time they shop. Buyers can also add the Floyd County Animal Rescue League to their Amazon account through Amazon Smile. Both options cost the consumer nothing to use.

“It really helps us too and it’s an easy way to support us,” Muss said.

When you think of Fair Bluff, exotic animals aren’t usually the first thing that comes to your mind.

Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals kept in captivity and in the wild. They are building a refuge for animals rescued from private property, ranchers, circuses and other bad conditions.

Lions, tigers, snow leopards, cougars, ocelots, servals, bobcats, caracals, wolves, bears and other leading predators will be able to live the rest of their lives in comfortable and secure natural habitat. Some animals lived in such harsh conditions that they never even touched the grass or walked around other than in a cage. North Carolina is one of four states in the United States that do not have laws governing the keeping of exotic animals.

Shizzy’s fences will exceed USDA regulations for any animals eventually housed there. (photo submitted)

Shizzy’s was launched in 2013 in Greensboro by Shazir Haque. Saving animals has always been her life’s work and her life’s dream.

Haque was looking for a place to build a shrine, and Rhonda Billeaud (who is now the organization’s co-chair) and her daughter directed him to Gary Lanier. Lanier is the director of economic development for Columbus County.

Lanier found 56 acres of land at Fair Bluff next to wetlands with access to the Lumber River, and it mimicked the perfect natural environment for big cats who surprisingly have a great love of water. Wild cats may not swim in the river, but they will still be able to smell and hear the flow of the water.

It also gives the organization a chance to bring something positive to an area that has gone through difficult times.

Fair Bluff suffered catastrophic flooding from Hurricanes Matthew and Florence. Wildcat rescue is built with floodwaters in mind and taking action to keep animals safe and dry. The sanctuary is built with the latest technology, including mobile air-filled dams for many buildings, and all of the habitats are elevated above the flood line level.

Mobile cages have been purchased to evacuate small animals that do not take advantage of the water like big cats do.

“We are aware and ready for Mother Nature,” Billeaud said.

Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue is currently receiving weekly calls about animals like wolves and wolf breeds, Billeaud said, so volunteers are desperately needed to build habitats. Seven structures need to be completed as soon as possible for the shrine to open. They are currently repatriating animals from as far away as the West Coast until they can be brought to North Carolina. Regular open volunteer days are held where people can raise and hang fences.

Covid has hit the organization hard, Billeaud said, so as many hands as possible will be a welcome sight for Shizzy’s.

Billeaud is convinced that the people of Columbus will support the refuge.

“Everyone has the power to make a difference. We want to inspire people to do good, ”she said.

All types of volunteers will be needed for different projects at the sanctuary, including landscapers, and even teens can volunteer for an educational program at all sites. Young people will have the opportunity to work on stands during festivals and to inform the general public about exotic animals.

Sponsors and donations are always welcome, but Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue’s biggest request is for the community to contact you with any questions or concerns.

“We want people to understand that we are a sanctuary for animals and not a zoo for humans,” Billeaud said. “We are not associated with any zoo or any other organization. We hope the community loves the animals as much as we do.

To volunteer at Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue, get more information, donate, or become a sponsor, contact Rhonda Billeaud at 910.840.1886 or email rhondabilleuad@shizzyswildcatrescue.org.

The rescue advertises its volunteer program on its Facebook page. Extra hands are always needed. No experience is necessary. (Photo submitted)

In difficult times, there are always people ready to step forward and offer help to those in need, whether they have two legs or four.

One of those people in Merritt is Betty Ann McDonnell, who has a long history of charitable service in the Nicola Valley with cat rescue and the Nicola Valley and District Métis Society, of which she is the president.

After the devastating Lytton Creek fire on June 30, McDonnell wanted to check in and make sure everyone was getting the help they needed.

“When the Lytton fire happened later that day I called a family I know in Lillooet, just wondering how they were doing,” McDonnell said.

The matriarch of this family worked to register the evacuees who had fled Lytton.

“She said to me, I’m at the response center in Lillooet and recording people, and someone came over who really made it clear to me that we each have what’s important to us and how we have to. respect it, ”McDonnell reported. of their conversation.

“A lady has just entered, she had no shoes on, but she had her cat under her arm. And that’s his family.

As an animal lover and cat rescuer, this prompted McDonnell to think about what would happen to the evacuee’s pets.

As a former Director of Emergency Support Services who was also part of a mobile support team that attended wildfires in Barriere, Kamloops, Kelowna, Salmon Arm and various other locations around the province, McDonnell recalled that there used to be a pet response team who also be called upon.

When she raised the possibility, she was told there was no plan for a pet response.

“It worried me because I knew people were taking their animals out,” McDonnell said.

At this point, Animal Response became more than McDonnell’s Project, as she called Vernon’s Gena and Dale of the Animal Auxiliary.

“I called her and explained to her what was going on, and she said we’ll be there in two days with a bunch of stuff,” McDonnell explained.

After tracking down a few leads, McDonnell hooked up with Stephen McNiven, Superintendent of School District 58, and was offered the Central Elementary School Dining Hall, where Gena and Dale quickly unloaded a truckload of crates, food, water dishes, leashes and other pet necessities. .

As evacuees flocked to the town of Merritt, they searched for friends, family and hotel rooms, and many could not have their pets with them in their temporary accommodations. That’s why the Nicola Valley Animal Response has launched a call for foster homes.

“There were a lot of amazing people coming together,” McDonnell said.

About 30 cats and kittens and ten dogs have been welcomed into the community, some of whom are only returning to their families now.

As more and more people were displaced, the number of animals requiring assistance increased.

“It became clear that we needed to expand and include feed for chickens, pigs, horses, llamas, and of course I didn’t have any,” said McDonnell, who had primarily focused on animals. domestic workers.

“We had groups from Kamloops, Vancouver, Chilliwack, different animal groups as well as a Sikh group, there were so many, bringing us animal food. They heard that I was looking for this food and trying to figure it out, and they spread the word. In less than an hour, they had a response, they donated $ 1,000 to help us, and that was from Australia. ”

This donation was given directly to Purity Feed Merritt so McDonnell could stock up on needed feed. Locals in the Kelowna area also answered the call for donations and soon two trailers of various Buckerfields feed and litter arrived in Merritt, along with two loads of hay which were stored at the Nicola Valley Rodeo Grounds, which housed also evacuees and livestock. .

“These bands, I can’t say enough about them,” McDonnell said.

Henriette Stirling, the janitor in charge of Central Elementary School, was also praised.

“This most wonderful lady went whenever I needed to and unlocked this school,” McDonnell said.

Other people who helped carry the weight of the Animal Response initiative were Métis summer students Drake Dumont, Vic, and Barb Cavaliere, who provided storage space in the garage, and an assortment of volunteers who helped managed logistics as well as field work. Georgina Johnny took on the monumental task of delivering donations to where they were needed, often having to make detours of several hours to reach people in the Kamloops area or the west side of Lytton.

While no payment of any kind was required to seek help from the Nicola Valley Animal Response, McDonnell noted that she was pleasantly surprised to receive local gifts from those who returned home. them along Highway 8.

“They were incredibly kind and sent me eggs, zucchini and tomatoes, and I’m so grateful,” McDonnell said.

“I can’t say enough about all the people who stepped forward and helped and cared.”

Convey Law donated vital funds to help two charities, the MS Society and Many Tears Animal Rescue in Wales after raising thousands of pounds through the innovative Conveyancing Foundation Lotto.

The two charities each received £ 1,000 after being nominated by staff at Convey Law, whose clients raised funds by participating in the Foundation’s Charity Lotto.

Jess Smith, Director of Operations at Convey Law, named the MS Society after personally experiencing multiple sclerosis (MS) while caring for his father.

She explained:

“The company and the vital work they do are close to my heart because my father has suffered from MS for 10 years and I have witnessed first-hand the remarkable work of the company.

“They work around the clock to support those recently diagnosed and those living with MS. Their long-term goals are to help people live well with MS, to connect people and make sure their voices are heard, and to work to find effective treatments and to prevent / cure MS.

“They ensure that people with MS have sufficient social protection and support to lead independent lives, ensure that people with MS receive appropriate disability benefits, and ensure that all people with MS have access to the right treatment, regardless of their situation or history. They are also funding pioneering research into MS treatments and cures, having invested more than £ 227 million since 1953. “

She added:

“I can honestly say that the funds donated by Convey Law of Charity Lotto will make a real difference in the lives of those affected.”

An estimated 110,000 people in the UK are living with MS and 5,200 people are diagnosed with the disease each year.

Convey Law also donated £ 1,000 to a unique animal rescue center in Wales, Many Tears.

Many Animal Rescue Tears in Carmarthenshire primarily accommodate former breeding dogs that are no longer needed, as well as dogs on ‘death row’ in pounds and those whose owners can no longer care for them.

The center, which welcomes more than 3,000 dogs a year, was appointed by Rebecca Johnson, who works as a conveyor at Convey Law.

Animal lover Rebecca said she has admired the center for a few years since she started visiting and following them on Facebook.

She said:

“Their facilities are amazing and always clean and the dogs are happy and healthy. I would save them all if I could!

“When I had the chance to name a charity for a donation, I immediately thought of them because it is a relatively small charity and they need every penny they can get to be able to continue to save dogs and find them homes.

“They are amazing and work so hard to find foster homes and permanent homes for dogs across the UK.”

The association is in urgent need of funding for veterinary and rehousing costs, as it has grown rapidly since its founding in 2004.

MTAR spokesperson Jenna Chung noted:

“With the help of our staff, foster families and other volunteers, we provide a special and loving environment to help all of our dogs adjust and find new, permanent and loving homes. All potential adopters are screened and homes checked and we do our best to find the right home for each dog.

“All of our dogs are sterilized, microchipped, inoculated and dewormed, but on top of that we see many dogs in need of specialist veterinary care.

“Some of the most common problems we encounter are dogs that come here with eye and heart problems, as well as those with liver shunts and joint problems. Any necessary treatment is funded by rescue donations which allow us to provide each dog with the specialized care they need.

“The rescue has grown significantly since it opened and it has been so difficult to continue during the pandemic with all of our planned fundraisers due to be canceled, so donations like this are essential for us to continue and we are so grateful. . “

Convey Law is one of a growing number of companies raising money for charity through the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto, where clients of any law firm or property company can make a voluntary donation of £ 10 upon completion. of their transaction, giving them a chance to win £ 500 in a monthly draw.

Managing Director Lloyd Davies Explain :

“Charitable donations are very important to us as a business and asking staff to nominate charities is a great way for them to benefit from the funds they have helped raise by allowing them to choose charities that they want. hold dear. “

Georgia Davies of the Conveyancing Foundation said the Lotto has helped businesses raise more than £ 800,000 for selected charities over the past decade.

She explained:

“We can help any law firm or real estate company raise funds through Charity Lotto. It’s a simple mechanism where customers can voluntarily donate £ 10 at the end of their transaction, giving them a chance to win £ 500 in a monthly draw.

She added:

“I am delighted to see that some of the funds raised by Convey Law clients go to deserving charities such as the MS Society and Many Tears Animal Rescue.

“We are very keen to help others raise funds for their own charities through our Charity Lotto, so please do not hesitate to contact us.”

During our visit to the rescue station, we got a glimpse of what is going on, which certainly endorsed the decision to fundraise for this very interesting charity.

Garry Waugh, Hartlepool RNLI Station Mechanic, said: “It was a pleasure meeting the Primark staff at the boathouse and giving them an overview of what we are doing.

Even during the Covid pandemic, all volunteer crew members remained on duty ready to go to sea to help anyone who needed our help.

This generous donation will help maintain the support we provide to help save lives at sea. ‘
