Cat-Man-Doo Wants You to Make A Difference!
IF YOU FIND IT HARD TO THINK ABOUT LIFE WITHOUT YOUR PET, IMAGINE YOUR PET'S LIFE WITHOUT YOU.
Thousands of animals are euthanized in U.S. animal shelters each year simply because their human caregivers passed away and had made no arrangements for the continuous care of their beloved pets. What will happen to your pets if they outlive you?
Our organization works to reduce the number of pets euthanized throughout the US due to the death or disability of their human companions. According to the ASPCA, 2 - 3% of all pets entering shelters are surrendered due to the death or disability of the pet owner. 2nd Chance 4 Pets is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal welfare organization. Our volunteers work nationwide to provide pet owners, veterinarians, and members of animal care organizations with comprehensive information and lifetime care solutions to ensure care for our companion animals. Based on the response we have received, we are convinced the our programs have a significant impact on preventing pets from being euthanized unnecessarily, providing owners with piece of mind, and reducing the financial and manpower strain on already overburdened animal shelters and rescue organizations.
Please let us assist you in making arrangements for your pets in the case of your death. You owe it to the furry four-legged friends who have provided you unconditional love throughout your lifetime.
Maddie's Fund, the Pet Rescue Foundation, is a family foundation established in 1999 to help fund the creation of a no-kill nation. Since its inception, Maddie's Fund has awarded animal welfare organizations and universities $71.6 million to save dog and cat lives.
PeopleSoft and Workday Founder, Dave Duffield, and his wife, Cheryl, created Maddie's Fund in 1999. The foundation makes good on a promise the Duffields made to their beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Maddie, to give back in dollars that which Maddie gave to them in companionship and love. Maddie passed away in 1997, but thanks to this one little dog, abandoned shelter animals have new opportunities to find loving homes in which they, too, may share in the joy and love that Dave and Cheryl enjoyed with Maddie.
- Community collaborations where animal welfare organizations come together to develop successful models of lifesaving
- Veterinary colleges to help shelter medicine become part of the veterinary curriculum
- Private practice veterinarians to encourage greater participation in the animal welfare cause
- The implementation of national strategies to collect and report shelter statistics
In Fiscal Year 2007-08, Maddie's Fund awarded $14.5 million through 298 grants in 41 states and the District of Columbia.
The Maddie's Fund mission is to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals.

Memorials that comfort, heal, celebrate…While grief is as individual as the number of people on the earth, one common reaction to the loss of a loved one, be it human or pet, is the wish to have some personal memento with which to remember the one you miss. Linda Markellis and Krista Johnson, a mother-daughter team in Whitefish, Montana, have been providing just such mementoes across the country through their hand-crafted glass Memorials and “Living Keepsakes.” Each custom Glass Pendent, Sun Catcher, Pyramid, Treasure Box, piece of jewelry, or specially made light can contain a snippet of hair or the ash “cremains” of a loved one – or may contain nothing at all, but simply serve as a personal reminder and celebration of a life which was loved. Each unique item is produced only after close consultation with the client, so that the finished piece is truly representative of the person or pet memorialized. Please feel free to contact us at:

MEOW's goal is to help create a "no-kill nation," where people are responsible for their pets, where there are no helpless creatures abandoned in boxes or left to fend for themselves in parking lots, where there is no longer a need for any healthy companion animal to be euthanized. There are many worthy organizations and individuals working toward this end. The rescue network is communicative and non-competitive. Certainly, progress is being made. But there is so very far to go.
MEOW, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit since 1997, places approximately 1,500 animals into permanent homes each year. Adoption fees from $65 to $95 help defray the cost of care for the animals. Donations from interested individuals, organizations and business provide additional financial support. Our application process ensures that every adopted animal is placed in an environment where there is appropriate space, human contact, and a commitment to safeguard and care for the animal for its entire lifetime. Our standards are high. The welfare of the animals is paramount in the placement process.
Each year, MEOW is faced with the impossible and each and every day we recommit ourselves to something we truly believe in, the motto we adopted at our inception, "all nine lives are precious."
Welcome to the website for Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit life time care animal Rescue & Sanctuary located in St Pauls, NC. We were started in 2005 to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they were blind. In 2011 we built a second shelter to answer the need for a safe place for FEL+ & FIV+ cats that were going to be killed just because they test positive for these viruses.
Rescue isn't glamorous. It's about comforting a scared cat whose owners abandoned him at the shelter after living together for 10 year. It's about holding a young animal's head as they take their last breath when it has been determined that their previous owners abused them so badly that they can't be saved. It is about restoring hope and dignity to creatures for whom no one else cares about.
Kindness Ranch is the only sanctuary in the US that takes in all kinds of research animals. While new, it is the result of a decade of work, saving, and planning.
Laboratory animals have long held a special place in the heart of Dr. David Groobman, Founder of Kindness Ranch. Successful in business, Dr. Groobman first saved enough to provide for his family into the future. Once this was accomplished, he dedicated all the profits of his business for ten years to the ranch. He searched four years to locate the perfect 1,000 acre parcel near historic Hartville in Wyoming.
Groobman's passion attracted caring board members to the cause. Together, they began planning for a sanctuary with the expectation that the residents will always receive the best in animal care and that dogs and cats would be rehabilitated in a home-like environment. Ground was broke in 2006. After building four guests yurts, a dog yurt, a cat yurt, and a managers' yurt, construction was finished in the summer of 2007.
The benefits to the animals are obvious: they are well-cared for in every aspect of their lives.
Come and be a part of the heartwarming work with animals here at Kindness Ranch! From petting cats to brushing the horses, we have all kinds of opportunities for volunteers to match their interests and physical abilities. Our animals love the special attention you bring, and it is an important part of the rehabilitative process!

Sara's Sanctuary advocates for the safety, well-being, and quality of life for all animals. We provide a safe and secure lifetime haven for animals in need of special care, for the disabled and abused exotic wildlife. They are given an abundance of love, which they so deserve, where they can live out the rest of their lives in security and dignity in their forever home.
At Sara's Sanctuary it is our primary goal is to provide a safe haven to any animal, bird, reptile or any other creature that is in immediate need of shelter, care and medical help because of abuse or abandonment. That belief does not change because of what species it happens to be. Any animal that needs immediate care, and has found its way to our door will not be turned away. They may only need our help for a short period of time to get them comforted, nourished and given a warm bed. If they need to be transitioned to another facility with the appropriate professionals, we establish where the best place is for the next step in their lives. Since we began in 1998, we have served as a place of transition for well over 1000 animals, many whom have come from sad and desperate situations.
Obviously, being free for any animal is the best option, if only for all exotics and wildlife, but usually, because of human involvement, that option is impossible for too many. Most people don't know that many of the species of creatures we have cared for here at the Sanctuary these past 14 years are illegal to own in the state of Washington. They are bred and sold every day into private ownership - from servals to bears, primates to foxes, deer, raccoons, squirrels, skunks and even the often misunderstood little opossum - basically any animal, bird or reptile you can think of. It is very disheartening to see the sad and filthy situations many of these animals are left in after being forced into human hands, totally dependent for even something as basic as clean water. Trade in birds, of all types, is the most prolific. The main need a bird has, is to fly and be free, and yet so many of them will ultimately end up sitting in a small cramped cage in someone's home or garage with no attention or care.
We believe all creatures deserve the same care and quality of life, no matter what size or shape it is. Providing that has always been our first priority.
Can you help?
Sara's Sanctuary operates 100% with an all-volunteer staff and NO administrative salaries or paid directors. When you donate, you can be sure that 100% of the money you give will go directly towards one of the following:
- Veterinary expenses, medical care, health maintenance;
- Food - e.g. fresh food, meat for the carnivores, exotic bird seed and pellets, farm feed;
- Animal enclosures - maintenance & repairs;
- Utility costs, etc.
Do You Know? Do You Care? Animal neglect and cruelty laws are minimally enforced in many places in Pennsylvania, especially our rural areas. There are no humane enforcement officers for this entire part of Pennsylvania! Shelters can not afford to hire agents. Local and state police are not trained nor have the facilities to take in needy animals.
Therefore, their silent pleas often go unanswered.

Our school was incorporated in May of 1942 and began instruction of students in a rented home in Los Gatos, California, south of San Jose. A German Shepherd named Blondie was one of the first dogs trained. Blondie had been rescued from a Pasadena dog pound. She was later paired with Sgt. Leonard Foulk, the first serviceman to graduate from the new school.
In 1947, the school moved to our present 11-acre location in San Rafael, California, 20 miles north of San Francisco. In October of 1995, we held the first graduation at our new campus in Boring, Oregon, 25 miles east of Portland. We have graduated more than 10,000 teams since our beginnings in 1942.
Both campuses house students in exceptional dormitory facilities which include dining rooms, exercise rooms, libraries, computer rooms and social areas. Both are located near major metropolitan centers, providing graduated training from quiet rural areas to congested city streets and public transit. The dogs and puppies are cared for in meticulous kennels and state-of-the-art veterinary clinics. Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, and Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever crosses are the breeds used. Professional staff and veterinarians nurture, groom, train and prepare the dogs for their futures as guides.
While there are many great causes worthy of charitable donations, few can immediately change a life or continue to have an impact throughout a lifetime. When you donate to Guide Dogs for the Blind, you're helping our school keep our promise to each of the more than 2,000 blind men and women who are our alumni. The services we offer are provided free of charge, and thanks to our supporters, we are able to do this without government aid.
Guide Dogs for the Blind is a charitable organization under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (tax ID #94-1196195). Donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by federal and state laws. Rest assured that Guide Dogs will not sell, trade or rent addresses on our mailing list without your permission.

Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County is dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of feral cats through local spay/neuter programs, placement services, community outreach and nationwide education. Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County practices the TTVAR-M method of feral cat control. Trap, Test, Vaccinate, Alter, Return and Maintain.
Through this method, cats are humanely trapped, tested for Feline Leukemia, given a rabies and FVRCP vaccination, ear tipped, and altered, then returned to their colony where they are fed and watered daily. Tame, adoptable adult cats are removed from the colony and placed into our Adoption Program. Kittens under the age of three months are also removed, placed in foster care for taming and then brought into our Adoption Program for placement into a lifelong home.
It is our experience (as well as many other feral cat management organizations throughout the country) that the TTVAR-M method of feral cat control is the only long-term, humane solution for controlling the overpopulation of feral cats. With proper colony management, feral cats do not suffer and can live long past the expected mortality rate for cats who are just left to fend for themselves in the wild. We are still caring for cats in colonies that were first altered when our program began in 1990. Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County is committed to a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect. We are dedicated to elevating the quality of life of feral cats and ending the pain and suffering of all cats living among us.

S.A.F.E. Pet Rescue is Saving Animals From Euthanasia!
S.A.F.E. Pet Rescue, Inc. was founded in September 2008 with the goal of saving adoptable dogs and cats from euthanasia in Northeast Florida.
Each week hundreds of healthy and very adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and pups are euthanized simply because their time in a shelter has run out. We focus our efforts on rescuing adoptable pets from facilities that are unable to house them indefinitely.
SAFE works with various animal control agencies in an effort to help them place more animals in homes. We visit the shelters and take these wonderful adoptable animals home to begin new lives. These pets reside in SAFE foster homes until they are permanently adopted. In our first year of operation, S.A.F.E. saved over 500 animals, and to date, we have saved over 2,500 lives!
All of our pets are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to being adopted. Cats are FELV/FIV negative and dogs are heartworm tested. We require a $60 adoption fee for cats and a $75 adoption fee for dogs to help cover our expenses.
Please consider adopting your next pet through SAFE. Or, you can help by fostering, volunteering, or donating to help support us. If you think you can't make a difference, just look at the difference we are making in the lives of these wonderful, living, breathing pets. We have given these animals a new lease on life. Please help!
