The Big Give Continues- Maria, Sophia and A Puppy’s Voice.

January 10, 2013

forsaleIn continuing with our goal of distributing the Make A Sale, Save A Tail profits this year we met up with A Puppy’s Voice Rescue on a very cold night to meet these little guys and gals headed for their foster home.


small puppy's voiceA Puppy’s Voice is a non-profit organization which rescues homeless and abandoned dogs and puppies from high kill shelters. With the help of our committed volunteers, foster homes, donators and local veterinarian we are able to rescue hundreds of dogs each year, provide them with loving foster care temporary families and find them forever homes. We also serve as a resource to our community by providing the importance of spay/neuter, responsible pet ownership, training and good nutrition.”

Maria and Sophia have gotten to spend time with puppies from this group before as our  neighbor, Michelle, is one of the very dedicated foster moms. We were happy to donate funds to ultimately help these puppies find homes. This particular night,  the puppies spent only one night in foster care and then headed to an adoption event in Arvada the next morning where they all found forever homes.


Maria and Sophia Meet Some of the Cats at Almost Home Adoptions.

January 5, 2013

Today was our second opportunity to deliver some much needed items to some very deserving animals and their care-takers. We gathered items from the wish list and headed over to see all the wonderful cats that will use them. 50-60 cats can be daunting for someone who is allergic to cats, but it is all worth it. Even if I sneezed my way through.

Almost Home Adoptions is a very nice and well kept facility. Great Job! There were at least 5 families there looking to adopt while we were there!

Almost Home Adoptions for rescued cats is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) rescue and adoption organization. Founder and Director Kathleen Cline has always had a passion for helping animals in need. She began helping cats several years ago by volunteering. Devastated and saddened by the vast differences in the care of the animals at the local shelters and one horribly ran rescue group, she decided to embark on a crucial need, thus creating “Almost Home Adoptions for rescued cats.”

Because of her strong desire and with the help of her daughter Tanessa, Dr. Lisa Carle, DVM, and many marvelous volunteers, over 4,000 lives have been helped since inception November 2005. We provide excellent care and love to all the kitties received.

The adoption center is cage-free which helps the kitties’ overall physical and mental health. The cats in our care are primarily strays and frequently have been injured or abused. We give them tender loving care along with any additional medical treatment necessary. We spend an average of $300 on every kitty that enters the adoption center. Every cat that finds its way to Almost Home Adoptions is spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated, and dewormed prior to finding a forever home.

Without our group of dedicated volunteers Almost Home Adoptions would not exist.

This is the best part about raising funds for animals…Giving the money to those who need it. Meet Fifi the pug, a patient at the Animal Urgent Care of Arvada. She is just one of the animal patients who will benefit from the Make A Sale, Save A Tail Donation to The Carnes Fund- A fund which provides financial assistance for emergency vet care.

Sometimes life is just full circle. Rocky and Rosie, both of our pugs who have passed on to animal heaven, did so at this amazing care clinic. The staff is so caring and positive even though their shifts are only when other clinics are closed-evenings, weekends and holidays- and they see some sad situations. Office Manager, Kate Rittler, who we met when we dropped off our donation, told us that there are just as many great stories-like the c-section for 11 puppies that they did last week!

If you are in need of Urgent Care in the Arvada area, we cannot recommend this clinic enough. Thank you to everyone who works there and made our sad days a little bit better.

“The mission of Animal Urgent Care is to provide excellent, affordable and accessible emergency care services for the pets of our local community. Emergency care is difficult due to the hours, expense, and stressful environment. We strive to keep compassion, cost-consciousness, and excellent service at the forefront of each and every case we see. We are proud of our staff and hospital. We put forth every effort to provide you and your pet comfortable and clean surroundings. We have the most up-to-date equipment in an historic yet newly remodeled facility. We have decades of emergency and critical care experience amongst our staff and regularly exceed continuing education standards. We are proud to have achieved American Animal Hospital Association certification in 2012.
