UPDATE: Stubby's surgery scheduled for July 2nd! [
Posted on June 21, 2008 @ 3:27 pm

[ mood | thankful ]

Because of the overwhelmingly positive response and generosity of family and friends old and new, and the fact that we are thisclose to reaching our goal, I've scheduled Stubby's surgery for July 2nd!

So, the last day to donate via PayPal will be June 27th! Donations made directly to the vet's office can be made all the way through July 2nd.

If you've already donated, THANK YOU!!

What a wonderful day today! Not only did Dr. Crocker's office agree to accept donations on Stubby's behalf (see my earlier posts for that info), we raised $250! Much of that $250 came from the support of the LJ communities, so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!

Since the fundraising is going so well (we're only about $250 short of our goal!), I was able to go ahead and schedule Stubby's surgery for July 2nd. He's having his bloodwork done next week, and I'm hopeful that we'll have a reason for why his teeth are in such bad shape.

I'm very grateful for and encouraged by all the positive feedback I've gotten...even the negative feedback has helped me to improve the way I'm doing things, so that's awesome.

So, if you've already donated, THANK YOU!! And if you haven't, please consider it...if you're unable to, prayers and well-wishes are accepted, too :-)

I recently posted a fund-raising request for donations to help cover the costs of extensive dental surgery for Stubby, a sweet little guy I'm fostering. Several folks suggested that they'd feel more comfortable donating directly to the vet's office than to me, which I understand completely. I thought that was a great idea, so I contacted my vet's office today, and they've graciously agreed to accept check and/or credit/debit card donations on Stubby's behalf.

Checks can be made payable to Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic. Please be sure to reference 'Account #30919' in the check's memo field.

Credit/debit card donations can be taken over the phone by calling (937) 435-3262. Again, please be sure to reference Account #30919. Their mailing address is:

Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic
5655 Bigger Rd.
Kettering, OH 45440

Thank you so much to those who have already donated!

My name is Ria, and I've created an LJ on behalf of a sweet little guy named Stubby. A friend asked me to provide a temporary home for Stubby, as well as try to find him a forever home, and I was happy to oblige. I knew that Stubby hadn't been to the vet in a few years, and would need to be caught up on his vaccinations and receive a clean bill of health before I could find a forever home for him.

However, when I took him in for his exam, the doctor determined that his oral health was deteriorated to such an extent that Stubby would need to undergo extensive surgery to extract all of his teeth and repair the damage to his gums and jawbones. As you can imagine, that kind of surgery is very, very expensive, and I if I had the means to pay for it on my own, I would do so in a heartbeat. That's where you come in...

I've created a website called www.freewebs.com/surgeryforstubby, where you can learn a little more about Stubby as well as make donations in any amount to help cover the cost of the surgery. For every $5 donated, you'll receive an entry in the Thank You Raffle for a chance at the Grand Prize of a $50 SuperCertificate to www.GiftCertificates.com

My fundraising goal is $1,200...any money raised that exceeds the goal amount will be donated to SICSA (The Society for the Improvement of Conditions for Stray Animals, which is a wonderful no-kill shelter here in Kettering, Ohio.

I'm asking for your support as I try to improve Stubby's life. Several people have told me to "just put him down, it's not worth it"...as far as I'm concerned, this is not an option. He's only four years old, and with this surgery, will lead a long, happy life. Please consider donating...even $1 will help! Even if all you can do is share the website with your friends and fellow animal lovers, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your time, and thank you for all the work you do to help our furry friends! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

I want to make it very clear that my one and only goal in creating the website and corresponding LJ is to raise the funds necessary to get Stubby on the road to health and happiness. I am not affiliated with any shelter or rescue group...I'm just one person trying to make a difference in one animal's life, in any way that I can.

Hello everyone!! I am an avid supporter of animals, animal rights, animal shelters, animal rescue, etc. etc....I've recently started supporting an organization in Manhattan that is completely donor supported. They do amazing things! www.bideawee.org (They are branded very nicely as well!! :) - I've been spending too long talking with Liya about branding!!) They spearheaded this program called "second start" In addition to all of the rescues they do for injured, sick, and otherwise needy animals, they've started this program where they have representatives go to municipal shelters, pounds, animal control and other kill shelters and they take in the animals who haven't been adopted and are about to be euthanized either because they were there too long or they are sick. They bring them into Bideawee's care and rehab them to give them a second start at life! How awesome is that. It gives me faith in the human race when I hear about things like that.

On that note, they also have a program where people can set up their own fundraising campaigns for animals in their care that need exceptional amounts of care (surgery, etc.) I've set up two of these pages. PLEASE VISIT THEM!!! Even one dollar can help in a completely donor supported organization like Bideawee.

Hello everyone!

Please take the time to visit my fund raising page for
these sweet little kittens who may loose their sight
because of horrible conditions at a city shelter.
They are going to need surgery to preserve their
And Miracle, the dog who needs a miracle of her own.
She was the innocent victim of a hit and run and the
heartless driver left her for dead. She was severely
injured and will require surgery to alleviate the
excruciating pain from a broken femur.

Please consider making a donation to help Bideawee
continue their life saving efforts for these innocent
animals. We are their voice!

The animals, Bideawee and I thank-you for any support
you can provide. Every dollar helps!






In addition!!!
I will be doing two walks for animals one in MAY and one in JUNE. It'd be awesome if anyone wants to sponsor me!! More info will be coming, and I will post here a link so you can donate online. The walks will benefit The Coalition for Animals and Humane Society and Shelter South Coast. I'll keep you all posted!!

If you guys have any sort of forum or friends that you'd like to pass this on to I'd really appreciate it!!

"We are their voice!"

Here are some pictures of the munchkins!!

Animal rescue in need of help ASAP [
Posted on April 16, 2008 @ 3:36 pm

 Please help our cause. I recently lost my job and the rescue needs some financial help to continue feeding and caring for the animals. We need bales of hay and bags of feed for the goats. Lots of food for the feral cats. Two geriatric indoor kitties need expensive prescription formula food for renal failure. One cat needs dental work as she is not eating. One goat also needs to see a vet. If you can donate, even if it is just a dollar, please click the banner. THANK YOU

Cat Rescue and Adoptions [
Posted on August 08, 2007 @ 3:00 pm

[ mood | happy ]

Hello all!  As a fellow animal lover, I hope this is okay for me to post here.  

I am 1 of 3 boardmembers for a non-profit organization known as Rescuties, located in Austin, Texas (www.rescuties.org).  We are responsible for rescuing kittens and other cats from the local shelter, Town Lake, which is unfortunately a kill shelter.  We take care of and raise kittens to be adopted.  This includes buying lots of food, litter, and medicine; taking them for shots, microchipping, and spaying/neutering, and of course giving them lots of love.

We currently have several cats for adoption on our website and I would love for you or anybody who wants a cat to check that out.  We are in the process of updating the site with more pictures, information, and a new schedule for Adoption Days.

Speaking of Adoption Days, we plan on having more during each month so that people can come out to see the cats and will be able to apply for adoption on the spot.

If you or someone you know lives in or around the Austin, Texas area, we would really like you to stop by.  Keep checking the website for the Adoption Days schedule.  

If it is okay with the moderators, I would like to be able to post a little something every month, with the cat of the month and any other updates.  I promise not to overpost or advertise as that is not what our organization is about.

Thanks for reading this and have a happy August 8th!

PETA is a bunch of corrupt hypocrites. they do not help animals.

check out this story



and that is not the first time I have heard about them doing something like this. I also came across a stroy where they were talking about owning exotic pets and when someone said that weather or not the animal was exotic it was still someones pet and they someone loved it.

One of the people for PETA responded by saying "it's just an animal" that is suppose to be the very attitude PETA is fighting aginst!

I do not support PETA and if you are an animal lover you shouldn't either.

Real bull riding vs. electric bull riding [
Posted on August 14, 2006 @ 5:43 pm
I decided to compare the two.

1. Saftey.

Real bull riding: you're siting on a probably drugged, mis-treated bull, who really isn't in the mood to have you on his back. If you fall, you can get trampled, hit by the horns, ect.

Electric bull riding: you're sitting on a metal/plastic "bull". If you fall, you land on a cushioned area. The bull stops "bucking" once you're off. You have a handle to hold on to while on the bull. The speed of the bucks and turns is controled. You can't wrap your legs around the "bull" for a better hold, depending on what "bull" you're riding.

All in all, electric bull riding beats real bull riding in safety.

2. Animal rights.

Real bull riding: the bull was probably drugged, is confused, and frightened.

Electric bull riding: its not an animal.

All in all, electric bull riding in animal rights.

Wouldn't it be better if rodeos just used electric bulls?
