My First Entry

This is my first official post to this blog!!
I want to Thank my friend Claudine for building this for me!! It is beautiful:)
This blog will be dedicated to writing about: Animals, Art, Love and Life

My days since returning from Artfest have been full..
Never a dull moment or a moment to just sit and be still...
In the upcoming days, I'm going to take some time and sit by the creek in front of my house, even if for a few moments to hear the birds and just reflect.
I'm hoping to take a truck full of puppies up to Wisconsin in a week or two as we are full to the brim with dogs.
I have 16 here at the moment.
Every day there are more puppies down at animal control and if we don't get them out, they are put to sleep. The hard part is after we take them from the animal control facilities, we then have to vaccinate, worm, do what ever medical things have to be done, spay/neuter and get health certificates for each one so that we can transport over state lines.
The shelters down here are very poor and not enough responsible pet owners to adopt them, so they must be shipped to more urban areas. I'm trying to find grants to apply for so that we can establish some spay and neuter programs in this area, to help fix this problem.
My plans for my own shelter are evolving each week. We now have an official tax number!!!
We are just waiting on our paperwork for our non for profit status.
As soon as I can get caught up and organized I will put an official call for art, for our art auction to help raise money to build the shelter. Artists building a shelter!! Together we can make a difference:)
The cute little dog in these pics are Miss Mini. She just came in and she is just a dollie!!! Approximately 1-2 years of age, she is a Dachshund/Terrier mix. Cute, sassy and definitely tries to be the boss!!
She was scheduled to be put to sleep due to space. Her and many other dogs & cats will be featured here, so if you are looking for a dog to add to your life, please do consider a rescued dog..
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!!
In Blessings and Light...
