Please join me, Frankie Picasso on Thursday, November 13th at 1:00 pm est when I interview power couple Marina Dervan and Mark Barone, co-founders of An ACT of Dog- Museum of Compassion. This incredible initiative Fuses the power of art, with the science of compassion and the heart of philanthropy.
An Act of Dog- Museum of Compassion is this couple's tribute to the animals who have died needlessly and without the love they deserved, in Shelters throughout the USA. Through a stunning display of paintings, 5500 to be exact, each painting is a tribute to the real dogs, the healthy dogs, who were killed in Shelters due to financial constraints, cruelty and a stunning lack of compassion. Why 5500? Because thats how many dogs are KILLED daily in shelters across America.
Marina and Mark are memorializing these beautiful souls and are seeking our support, to create a permanently display of this awe inspiring exhibit called An Act of Dog- Museum of Compassion. They hope to build a' forever fund' that will use 100% of your donation towards the salvation of shelter animals. This Museum is the perfect educational platform to promote compassion for all animals.
In this episode, we discuss some of the harsh realities facing pets who are given over to animal shelters. Just what is daily life like for an animal whose new "home" is now an animal shelter? If a shelter is not a "no-kill" shelter, how long does an animal have to be adopted before it is put to sleep? What are the living conditions like in a typical shelter? Are all shelters "created equal"? What are some of the challenges for shelter staff? This is definitely an episode no one should miss. Join hosts J and D, as they tackle this difficult topic, Saturday, November 1st on The Missy Show (5pm Central).
Hosted by Debbie Dahmer (the Biggest Crybaby in Brazil???)
Guest will be Jay Apicella- President and Director of Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc
Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. was organized in 1988 for the purpose of building and maintaining a shelter for homeless dogs and cats on the Treasure Coast. Our shelter is founded on the principle of trying to find good, adoptable and loving homes for the animals and help stop the killing of over 75,000 abandoned animals in southern Florida. With the increase of Florida’s population so too has come an increase of unwanted animals. Any healthy pet not adopted will have a safe and permanent home at our facility for the duration of its natural life.
No animal at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. will ever be sold for research, entertainment, or exploitation. We strive to end animal abuse and neglect. This charity is not connected with any other animal society. It is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt project totally dependent on donations and endowments. Officers and members are unpaid volunteers. All gifts are used locally and are greatly appreciated. Want to volunteer?. The shelter will then contact you via email or phone within the next week to schedule a volunteer orientation and get you involved with one of the more rewarding forms of service, helping, caring for and loving animals.
Talking with two authors today. First, Tom Cohen, author of "Dogs with Old Man Faces", celebrating dogs with 'old souls'. Then host, Julie Forbes talks with Ardeth De Vries, President of the Board of Old Dog Haven, a non-profit that is a large network of foster homes that gets old dogs out of shelters! www.olddoghaven.org
Old Dog Haven: "We want our dogs to know that someone thinks they're valueable. Old dogs can become throw-away dogs that become expendable, for whatever reason, and it's very important to us that they're able to spend time with people who validate their importance."
November is 'Adopt a Senior Pet' month (among a few other pet related issues addressed in this month). In this episode we will be discussing the pros of adopting older pets. Older pets in shelters are more at risk for being euthanized; so it's important to be aware of some of the positive benefits of giving an older animal a second chance at having a loving home. We will also address any considerations to be made before adopting a senior pet. Be sure to join us for this special Friday edition of The Missy Show! Special time: 5:30pm Central.
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?
In this episode of The Red Light Sports Rant; presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec talk about the 'Million Dollar Ramble'. This campaign has been put together to help raise awareness against domestic abuse. We may never be able to stop domestic violence, but we can help raise awareness, and decrease the number of cases. 1 in 4 women will be a victim of some form of domestic violence in their life. Evan and Troy will journey around the country, arriving in 46 cities, and doing 365 live shows, starting on April 14, 2015. The first show will be opening day, in Pittsburgh, and the last show will be full circle back where it started, in Pittsburgh. The purpose of the trip, is to raise awareness about domestic abuse, and to raise funds for 50 local shelters across the country. Help support the cause, we will be sellling T-shirts, and also need to secure 365 venues. The biggest obstacle is finding an RV, so that we can get from point A to point B, and have a place to rest, while on the road. Listen in and help support our cause against domestic abuse.
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.
