EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED
The A Wish For Animals organization is really needing blankets to keep their dogs warm! Here's what they're saying in their email:
"This is a cry for help, I need everyone to PLEASE try to get blankets for the dogs up here. It is so cold at night and some dogs tear them up so we need about 100 blankets at this time and will continue to need them all winter.
The dogs are FREEZING - it starts to get cold as early as 6:00 P.M. and the dogs are shaking cold - PLEASE -PLEASE cross post to everyone you know if you could all try to get some blankets up to these dogs."
So how about it? Send them a blanket or a donation so they can buy some blankets for their dogs!

Bad economy is bad for animals
Downturn means more relinquishments and fewer adoptions from county animal shelters.
By ERIKA CHAVEZ
Officials at county animal shelters are breathing easier these days – but not by very much.
In September, the Irvine Animal Care Services shelter was overrun with a record number of animals: 268 cats, 92 dogs and 39 rabbits.
The economic downturn was the culprit, with pet owners facing eviction, foreclosure and job loss forced to give up their beloved pets. Shelters throughout the county reported similar conditions, including Laguna Beach, Seal Beach, San Clemente-Dana Point, and the county-run OC Animal Care.

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals.
It takes less than a minute (How about 20 seconds) to go to their site and click on the purple box 'fund food for animals' for free. This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.
Here's the web site!
