Stray animals, desparation, rescues, raids... those are all ways in which animals end up in the shelter system. Often the county shelters are overwhelmed with the amount of animals that arrive on a daily basis. What other options do we have? What can we do to have a different possibility? Do we have options? Can we make a difference?
Virgin Islands animal rescue organizations will get a boon from the chupacabra this summer. Ye Gods! A Tale of Dogs and Demons, the latest novel by former Virgin Islands resident Lynne Hinkey, is a tale of magic and monsters run amok on a Caribbean island. Lynne is donating 100% of the proceeds from ebook sales to animal rescue groups with the Animal Care Center of St. John, St. Thomas Humane Society, and St. Croix Animal Welfare Center benefitting in July, August, and September, respectively. "It's a two-fer deal," Lynne explains. "When you buy Ye God!, you get a good read and do a good deed.
The star of Ye Gods! is the chupacabra (Spanish for "goat-sucker"), a beast that captured the nation's imagination and has made its way into pop culture. Lynne's madcap crime-caper, "a Scooby-Doo meets Murder, She Wrote mash-up," tackles the mythology surrounding the monster with some new and hilarious twist.
Lynne is a "marine scientist by training, author by passion, and curmudgeon by nature." She moved to St. Thomas as a 19-year-old to attend the then College of the Virgin Islands and later worked for the UVI Marine Advisory Service. Her debut novel, Marina Melee, is set on the fictional island of São Jorge, a place that should seem familiar since it's based on St. Thomas. The story of Ye Gods! and the chupacabra was inspired by actual events in Puerto Rico, where Lynne did her doctoral studies at the University of Puerto Rico.
Lynne is available for interviews, book readings and signings, and book club appearances via Skype, phone, or other online venues. Contact her at email@example.com
We recently visited a women's shelter and the women enjoyed it. I thought the Deja Ministries with Sis. Sandy was anointed and the women of the shelter seemed to get something out of it.
However, we know there is a growing need for quality shelters and the things which are provided for the women of these shelters.
Let's Talk About It!
The Designers Jean-Pierre and Jean-Marc Desmarais are twin brothers who grew up in the Ahuntsic neighborhood of Montreal, Canada. When they were young, they were fascinated by all things related to technological innovations. Their beginnings In the early 1980s, the brothers, united by their common passion, undertook to sketch tall houses with futuristic configurations. The concept evolution They continued for a long time to develop more and more elaborate

Every year, millions of abused and abandoned animals are gassed to death, or chemically killed. As usual, instead of going after the CAUSE of these claimed overpopulated animals, we instead kill off large numbers of them. We react instead of being pro-active.
While it is true that pet owners need to have their pets spayed and nuetered, this process is so cost prohibitive in many cases that owners simply cannot afford to have it done.
The average cost of spaying and nuetering across the country is 85.00 to 150 dollars. The cost of euthanizing these same animals is as much or more. Wouldn't it make better economic sense to offer low cost spay and nueter, and avoid the costly euthanizing?
Every year organizations claiming to exist to protect animals from abuse, neglect and possbile euthansia, collect millions upon millions of dollars in donations. Instead of funding kill shelters, would we not be better served to fund free or reduced cost spay and nueter clinics? This would reduce unwanted populations of animals that eventually are held in shelters waiting to die. I know the animals would appreciate it.
Join us as we discuss our unsavory acceptance gas chambers and other methods of killing off unwanted animals.
Debbie Dahmer will co-host this show.
Tonight is the pilot show for animal advocacy. The inhumane treatment of companion animals, farm animals and wild animals has got to stop. As human beings we are capable of and accountable for, far more than what we are doing. There is nothing human or humane about mistreating an animal and even less in knowing that it happens with such frequency and doing nothing about it.
Animal shelters are over capacity with abandoned and abused animals, many simply dumped in the street and abandoned, others rescued from horrendous neglect and abuse at the hands of their owners. What kind of person does this to a vulnerable animal?
There are numerous groups and organizations devoted to protecting and saving these tortured creatures. We will be discussing these groups, including online petitions and other activities aimed at rescue, protection and adoption services.
Please join us as we open the dialogue on the miserable state of affairs regarding all of our injured and abondoned animals. We are their caretakers and protectors. We need to do more!

President Barak Obama has changed his mind and now will meet with Texas Governor Rick Perry on the immigration crisis and the threat to the American Mexican Border. Also Hamas has hit Israel with 180 rockets and caused 400,000 Israeli's to spend much of last night in bomb shelters. Israel has responded with "Operation Protective Edge" killing 38 and wounding over 300 as the operation continues. Also a naked man crashed though the front door of a home in Seattle Washington quoting scripture as he says he was high on LSD, but could it have been demon spirits? Also Israel has agreed to help defend the Nation of Jordan if they are attacked by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). Also Typhoon Neoguri triggers severe flooding in Okinawa and now the massive storm heads toward Mainland Japan. These issues and much more along with bible prophecy and the powerful Word of God. Your host Pastor Paul Begley of Indiana.
