Shelter Helping rescue groop
posted 7 years ago
My name is Linda Hodges. I own Unity Thrift Furnishing and Outreach in Taft California.
100% of my store income goes to the dogs.
The Kern county area of California is flooded with puppies and dogs. I run a "non-profit rescue organization" using my store for our funding, selling new and gently used furniture with the help of volunteers. I run an advertisement in the local Taft Midway Driller Newspaper offering to take litters of puppies and dogs at any time, and help with the cost of spaying their female.
This is the only way we know how to stop the handing out of these puppies which would be dead or end up back out on the streets to repeat this sad cycle. When I started this organization I was told about a very special place called The Humane Society of Ventura County.
They are a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter celebrating their 75th anniversary. They do low-cost and no-cost spaying and neutering and a low-cost shot and microchip clinic. They have a great volunteer program and they have a humane officer who investigates animal neglect and abuse.
This place has been a Huge Blessing to us. They have taken at times up to 30 puppies a week. They are willing to help us in any way they can. We love them. They make us feel very welcome and when I say we, it is my friends and others who have stepped up to the plate to foster these dogs when necessary because Unity Thrift has no kennel. All of the dogs and puppies that we handle are either kept by the original owner until we can take them or by foster volunteers.
These women who run the shelter deserve the "MILLION DOLLAR MAKEOVER" They also take time with kids in the community and so graciously help the challenged and disabled as well. I just can’t say enough about them. They really care about the animals and people. Most other shelters aren’t willing to help out of other counties. Thank God they have. They have taken LOTS of dogs and puppies that would have been killed in our local shelters.
Taft does not have any no-kill shelters locally. "City of Taft Animal Control" has a 90% kill ratio.
We hope and pray that if the "The Humane Society of Ventura County" doesn't win, is that there be another alternative to helping them get a new shelter.
PLEASE HELP THEM.
IF THEY HAD A BIGGER SHELTER, THEY COULD SAVE MORE DOGS.
We love Ojai, CA with The Humane Society of Ventura County.
They are wonderful.
