STREET CATS NEED YOUR HELP
My name is Janine, and I have been rescuing and feeding
cats for over 15 years in the City of Rochester. I
have found homes for at least 20
cats. These have been mostly adult cats, and some
kittens, but all of them have been taken off the street,
and placed into warm and loving
homes. I still keep in touch with most of the people
who have adopted them, and they tell me all the time
how thankful they are to have these
believe rescued cats are the most sweetest cats of
all because of what their living conditions were prior
to being adopted. You just can't beat the loving look
they give you when they jump into your lap for a pet
and cuddle. There are many many stray cats out there
that I feed each morning. I go to at least 9 different
spots in a 1-2 mile radius, and they are there each
morning waiting for food. I try to shelter their food
as best as I can, but its never enough from the conditions
we have weather-wise in Rochester. I also do this
all out of my own pocket, it's a very expensive mission
I am on.
cats need you to give them a chance, show them your
love. I started a blog in April of this year - its
mostly a diary of my thoughts, and what I do and who
I see out there in the early morning hours - I hope
you read it and pass it on to others. Won't you please
help me save these cats? http://thebean10.blogspot.com/

in need. If you have a warm home or barn, please contact

3/26 - Homer and Hanna have survived their ordeal and
are on their way to living healthy, happy lives! Our
heartfelt gratitude to York Animal Hospital for not
giving up on them when their situation was dire and
to all their Guardian Angels for their caring and monetary
support. Both Homer and Hanna have found their forever
Our Hanna is back from the vet. She gave us quite
a scare on Monday when she stopped eating and became
lethargic. She was given more intravenous fluids with
anti nausea meds that helped bring her back. She's
now eating again and seems to be gaining strength.
Hoping this is the last setback for her. Here's our
sad looking little girl on her way to the vet Monday.
AND HOMER'S GUARDIAN ANGELS:

3/18 - Hanna and Homer were released from the vet on Saturday.
Both were lively, eating and doing well until this morning.
Hanna has had a setback. Not eating and lethargic, she is
back in the hospital. Homer is still doing well. Puppy prayers
for him that he stays that way and continues to heal.
3/15 - Hanna and Homer are still fighting for their lives.
This is day 5 for them at the vet and we are hoping and
praying for a full recovery. Their vet bill will be enormous.
You can help by donating on our
site or directly to the vet.

and Hanna are currently in a vet hospital being treated
for Parvo. Parvo is a virus that puppies are susceptible
to, and the reason that we vaccinate puppies on a regular
schedule until they are immunized. They can still get Parvo
during this time, before they become immune to it. Parvo
is a bad infection that causes a lot of problems in their
whole GI system. While at the vet office they will be getting
constant care, fluids, and medications to help prevent them
from getting worse since prognosis for recovery is 50/50.
We deeply hope that these puppies are able to survive this
dreaded illness. Your
donations will help pay for their intensive veterinary care.
was founded to serve Finger Lakes Region veterans as well
as assist local shelters and rescue organizations with placement
of adoptable animals. Our mission is to match shelter or
rescue animals with a military veteran who may benefit from
pet companionship. We have recently expanded our services
to include support for our Nations veterans and collaboration
with local shelter and rescue organizations in the Tampa
Bay area of Florida. Before our incorporation, although
several like organizations existed across the country, none
served the veterans of Upstate New York, despite the proven
benefits of pet companionship. Now with operations in Florida,
we hope to reach even more of the men and women who have
served our country. In close association with local veterans
organizations in both of our locations, we hope to identify
those men and women who have served in the military, who
can benefit most from the presence of a companion animal.
Based on the needs and desires of the former service member,
the volunteers of Veterans PetReach will select that companion
animal. We also provide a foster home for the veterans
new pet, allowing further observation of the animals
temperament and developing a solid training base for its
new owner to build upon. Through your support Veterans PetReach
will provide for animal selection, care and training and
for integration into the animals new home. Incorporated
in 2010, Veterans PetReach is a 501 C 3 organization. The
founders combine years of experience in animal training,
health-care, community support, veterans assistance and
pet assisted therapy. We remain committed to serving veterans
in the Finger Lakes region and saving the lives of shelter
and rescue animals.
