Fundraiser for Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission's 501(C)(3) Application

As you know, I am the official mascot for the Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission, or VEFM. It is terribly important to me that my animal friends are able to get emergency care when they need it, and not all their owners can afford it. That is why I want so much for VEFM to succeed. It will be hard for them to succeed unless they can get 501(C)(3) status as a non-profit corporation, but they do not have the $300 they need in order to apply. In order to help, they set up a donation page at a need web site called Fundable.com, where donors can pledge $10 or more toward this fundraising drive. Here is the link: http://vefm.blogspot.com/2009/03/fundraiser-to-get-300-needed-for-501c3.html

Please tell all your friends.

Dog First Aid, from Cesar Millan's Web Site

I wanted to share with you an interesting article on first aid, located on Cesar Millan's web site.

Dog First Aid

The single most important thing you will need: a clear level head. Stay calm! If an emergency should arise, your pet is counting on you to focus and provide the necessary attention and care.This information is not intended to take the place of expert veterinary care. It is only intended as assistance to help you determine if you have a serious situation and to help you maintain your pet's life until you can obtain medical attention.

This sad headline is from an article on the ASPCA site, published by the the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, to alert pet owners about the dangers of a common household plant. To read the full article, and to learn more about other household toxins, go to the following link: http://www.aspca.org/news/national/03-20-09.html#1

My Favorite Facebook Page! I am SUCH a Fan (I'm also their mascot!)


I try not to discriminate against a species that is "less fortunate" than mine.
