RESCUE GUEST     Robin Budin with Dog Deserve Better

What Is Your Passion or Your Story:

My passion is rescuing formerly chained or penned dogs from their life in filth, feces and squalor, rehabilitating them and getting them new homes.

Website    http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org
Website #2 http://www.rainbowrescues.org
Address:  Chicopee, MA 01020

Dogs Deserve Better is a national anti chaining organization. A new rehab for formerly chained dogs was bought in Smithfield Va. The house that Michael Vick, the football player who fought pitbulls and executed pitbulls on his property was bought and turned into the Good Newz Rehab Center.

They need donations for fencing, for fixing up the property to ultimately handle 50 formerly chained or penned dogs.
I also work locally with Rainbow Rescues out of Chicopee MA and would like people in the New England area to go to www.rainbowrescues.org and look at all of our adoptable animals.
Name of Animal
Lulu
Age 1.5 years
Species Dingo Dog

Lulu Needs A Home

Lulu was found in MS in an RV Park thrown away. For 10 days runners were bringing her food and the security guard at the RV Park knew the police were planning to kill the dog so a rescuer in MS went and got her and got in touch with me to help her. She kept Lulu in her pack of 20 dogs for 2 months to somewhat socialize her to get her ready to be transported. She was a scared mess when she got to me and gets a little better each day but 5 weeks ago she twisted her ankle and has not recovered yet. She wont go for walks yet, she wont really go outside in the back on her own and she loved being in the yard the first 2 months she was here. She has been to the vet, there is no break, but the healing is slow slow slow.

Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
I want to know how she feels, if it hurts, why she wont push the doggie door open to get inside or out (she just sits by it waiting for me to push the door an inch). Does she like it here, does she like the animals living here with her and will she want to go for walks again and be outside again and when will she stop barking at new people she never met before.

RESCUE GUEST & ANIMAL

Date You Are Scheduled    Tuesday, January 10, 2012
Your Name *     Dee Baldus

What Is Your Passion or Your Story
I have started an organization called Paws for Troops. There is the upshot.

Paws for Troops is a group of volunteers that are enabling military veterans and animals to heal from trauma together.

It is our belief that animals are healing and they offer a level of acceptance to us that is unequaled. With that in mind, we also believe that the military training the veterans have received bring a level of trust to animals in distress.

As an organization, we are looking to assist military organizations, such as the VA and others, by facilitating the veterans as volunteers at local animal shelters and rescue groups.

The goal, at all times, is to maintain dignity for both the veterans and the animals. We believe that we can assist in raising the awareness for the needs of both group and this can offer new opportunities for the veterans.

I will be featuring a dog from one of our rescue groups, Star Paws.

We are looking to launch in 2012 and need to file the 501(c)3. I am doing some fund raising to complete that. Once that is filed, we are ready to go. We will begin by taking veterans to rescue adoption days, such as Star Paws, and have them be with the animals. Walking them, holding them, showing them to potential adopters. Another option is to work with a mobile groomer, assisting them when the do volunteer grooming shelter adoption days.

What Is Your Passion or Your Story:  
I met Laura because she talked with several of my own dogs, which are all rescues, and then I started having her listen to dogs that didn’t have homes yet. When you have dogs that have made it out of a shelter only to be abandoned yet again by rescues or adopters, they have to board to stay safe and this isn’t just expensive, it is very difficult and confusing for the dog, too.

Helping dogs any way I can is what drives me, and I appreciate that Laura’s abilities have made such a positive impact.

What Do You Want Us To Mention On The Show or Ask You
Friends of Irving Animal Services Foundation is a non-profit created to help as many dogs as possible reach the safety of loving and responsible homes. We are not a rescue that takes in dogs ourselves, though most of us have fosters in our homes that were abandoned by adopters or rescues. Instead, we use the power of a large social network to get the dogs the exposure they need and then tirelessly assist rescues and adopters with funding, medical care, transport and whatever else we possibly can supply or do to help save these precious lives.

Instead of just telling people they should adopt their next pet and take proper care of them, we focus on the practical actions that help make these things happen. It is our goal to make our shelter, Irving Animal Services, the first genuinely “no-kill” municipal shelter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. If we can do it we hope to be a model for other shelters to follow. Others are already using our format to network and fund their shelter pets, so we believe it is just a matter of time and persistence before it becomes a wonderful reality. We know no matter how hard we may try, it’s a community effort.

Name of Animal    Trooper
maybe 2 years  dog, male, neutered
pit-border collie mix

Trooper

 

Trooper Needs A Home

History or Story
Trooper came to a Dallas-area shelter with what appears to be a deliberate chemical burn along his spine and despite his winning personality Trooper was constantly overlooked by adopters and rescues alike…who knows why, maybe his breed, his size, his beautiful black fur, the fact that he didn’t look perfect. His angel Jennifer rescued him and got him healthy but he has been boarding for months now with no interest. He is very friendly and loveable and really needs his own home and people to love.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
How did you become a stray? What happened to your back? Why do you not like other dogs…and do you think you could live in a home with other dogs and if so, what kind/sex would make you most at ease? What kind of owner would make you happiest? Is there anything you want to tell us, anything you need or that bothers you?
Anything else?
Trooper has his own facebook page! It is called A Forever Home for Trooper. If you would like to inquire about Trooper, this is the best place to do it, or email iasfriend@gmail.com
You can make a tax-deductible contribution to Trooper’s boarding expenses through the Friends of Irving Animal Services Foundation. The PayPal address is iasfriend@gmail.com, or send a check to the address provided above. Or you can go to our Facebook page and look at the wonderful pets still desperately in need of a home before Christmas and choose a dog that is in need of assistance and sponsor that dog directly…or adopt!
Every single cent is used to help needy dogs; we are all volunteers and we pay the administrative overhead out of our own pockets so that the generosity of kind people can go farther to helping dogs like Trooper.

Activist Guest Human & Animal

 

Jayne Miller with OreCat.org

Jayne emailed me: I am founder/director of www.OreCat.org, and I wonder if Oregon’s cougars know how much I love them and how I am trying to save and protect them from hunting. To the world I am a polished business woman,farmer, public speaker, author and artist who never talks about the above. But to those who understand, I am all of the above.

Websites:

www.OreCat.org

www.GrapeLanePoultryFarm.org

Jayne also emails me:

Please ask the cougars if they know I am trying to protect their lives by way of a Bill called License To Protect by OK to ask?  Do they feel my energy, to they “hear” my love for them?

About 8 years ago there was a cougar who walked with me on our farm.  It was after dark under the savannah oaks and I could not see the cougar, but knew something was there.  As I walked, they walked.  When I stopped, they stopped.

The next morning I found cougar tracks about 8 feet from were I was walking.  The cougar walked with me about 900 feet or more unseen.   I believe he/she may be dead.  They had to cross a freeway to find my farm.

All told, there were 3 unusual cougar happenings, one actually being a plant called Possum Haw, that helped me start Oregon Cougar Action Team and the Bill License To Protect.  It is a Bill I have designed to help protect cougars and it is a Bill that has the potential to happen in other States.

See this months Natural Geographic to learn about the vanishing big cats.  This article includes cougars.  My idea of this Bill seems very timely and I plan on posting License To Protect in more detail on OreCat’s website this coming weekend!

I got the Bill introduced at last years State Legislative session, but the Agriculture Committee, by law, reviews all wildlife Bills and they changed it so much I did not recognize it!  Both my draft of the License To Protect, Representative Buckely’s request for the Bill and the final butchered version of my idea, Bill 1202 are attached.

I plan on tying again this next session to reintroduce the original Bill unaltered by any committees. If all goes well with the interview on your radio, may OreCat create a link too it?   Thank you so much!

Below is a picture of a mother and her cub.  I do not know how old they are or if they are still alive.  But the picture catches hearts.

License To Protect

There is a better plan to manage our wolves and cougar.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION AT THE LINK BELOW IN SUPPORT OF “License To Protect” OREGON’S RETURNING WOLVES AND DWINDLING COUGAR POPULATION FROM BAD POLICY MAKING, HUNTING PROGRAMS, AND KILLING THEM SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE SEEN!

What Is Your Passion or Your Story
My passion is to Stop the killing of cougar and wolves. To give them safe homes and places just to be what God made them to be. To enjoy seeing the God Light and energy round them and what they give back to the ecosystems that keeps us all living well. They are good energy and we need to remove the darkness from our hearts that kills them and instead learn to live fear free of them and to believe in their great purpose. I sincerely hope that my idea, License To Protect, will help achieve this.
License To Protect would create a new employer for Oregon Department Of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW) by way of the non-hunting Oregonian (or any Oregonian) buying a nonlethal license for cougar or wolves at the same cost as a killing license; thus reducing the numbers of wolves and cougar killed. ODFW, The Federal Government Wildlife Agency, Oregon’s Agriculture Department and any other agency involved with the killing of cougar and wolves; would be required to hold to the letter of the law License To Protect and not increase kill quotas to offset the cougar and wolves saved from death that LTP would achieve. Currently, there are more Bills and programs from the above organizations established without an environmental impact risk factor or unbiased outside peer review done before thrusting them upon Oregon’s ecosystems; to kill cougar and wolves, thus insuring that there is no true protection for either species at this time.

I grew up on our family’s 7000 acre cattle ranch my father managed using the knowledge of Aldo Leopold. We did not allow hunting and I walked with the wildlife including cougar. 30 years later on my farm in the heavily populated Willamette Valley, a cougar came and found me and walked with me and asked me in my heart to start Oregon Cougar Action Team. A plant, Possum Haw, which is extinct on the East Coast because the cougar has been killed off; came to my farm in that fall desquised as a dogwood, but then in the Spring told me that it was a plant nearly gone because it had lost it’s keystone protector – the cougar. I started Oregon Cougar Action Team a 501c3 educational foundation with no money. Apparently, it was not needed. People came instead and an attorney who did all the paper work for the NFP, probono. We were immediately put on K2New and in several newspapers. The energy is right, the purpose is good and it all conn ects.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
What are the cougar thinking about Oregon Cougar Action Team. About our Bill License To Protect. Do they know how much I love them. I miss them – all the ones I could not save.
