Shadow's Fund needs your help to keep it going!

Shadow's Fund

Please help this rescue http://shadowsfund.org/ that dedicates it's services to Pitt Bulls and Seniors, the two types of dogs most likely to die at the shelters...
They deserve our help, please donate if you can!

from the website:

URGENT HELP NEEDED TO SAVE THE SANCTUARY: For the past 16 months Shadow’s Fund has worked without pause to create and sustain the Sheltering Oak Sanctuary.We’ve dug trenches and built fences. We’ve created a new home for rescued animals and have restored the land that is home to wild animals. We’ve gently welcomed dogs – bruised and broken – into the safety and love of the sanctuary, and we’ve joyfully (and sometimes tearfully) wished them well as they have moved on to their forever homes. We have marveled at the selfless volunteers that give their time and their hearts to help a dog heal, and how the dogs in turn have helped people heal. From disabled adults to at risk youth, from those in need of a community to connect with to those required to perform community service, the sanctuary has been a place of hope and healing for people too.
This incredible place serves as a safety net to the most vulnerable shelter dogs – the lost and lonely grey muzzled seniors and the feared and misunderstood pit bulls. Here they all get love and a 2nd chance.
Today, we are at a major turning point. One which will determine whether this seed we planted will grow and flourish, or wither and die. The land we are leasing is for sale and we have very little time to raise the down payment. We’ve come a long way, but we have a long way to go.  What would you give to see a sanctuary grow?
The sanctuary has been a miracle for so many dogs out of time and out of hope. Now the sanctuary needs a miracle. We have one shot to make this happen and that shot is now.  Please make a contribution today.
There has never been a time when we needed you more.

I like the Blog Hop, let's get the word out for the animals!!

This is so cool. If you want to get the word out on helping to get shelter animals adopted, join this Blog Hop to spread the word. The more people who participate, the more people who see our blogs! :-)

What is a blog hop?
A blog hop is a linky list that is SHARED ON MULTIPLE BLOGS.
When several blogs put the same linky list code on their blog, the
exact same list appears on each blog.

Blog visitors can submit their entries on any blog that contains the list.
The entries will appear on each blog where the list resides.

Blog readers see the same list on each blog, and can "HOP" from blog
to blog seeing the same list of links to follow: BLOG HOP!

Andy A0866359, lovely senior Gentle & Sweet!

He was turned into the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter on Dec. 22, 2011. .  Andy is a 9 yr. old, neutered,  German Shepherd mix who weighs 35 lbs.  Seniors have a particularly hard time at the shelter and finding a home.
 Poor Andy!

Andy is a sweet, gentle, easy going dog who, once out of his run, becomes very personable and friendly.  He really likes people.  He is housebroken and his loving spirit is hoping that someone will take him away from all of this sadness.  His previous “owner” said that he was the best dog ever, she just couldn’t afford keeping him any longer.  
The shelter scares Andy and that is why he hides out in the back of his run.  This is not the life that he wants or that he remembers. He remembers having a person. He remembers having a warm bed and being best friends with a human who promised to take care of him forever.  That is what we want for Andy.
Please help Andy!  He needs a home before it is too late.  Please adopt this wonderful boy.

Little Senior Terrier Candy A1259183 is YOUNG at heart!

Why isn't this girl being scooped up? How sad that this lovely lady can't find someplace to rest her weary head. Don't you need a sweet senior to warm up your chilly winter nights??

My name is Candy and I am a spayed mixed terrier and about as cute as can be, if I do say so myself. A lady never likes to divulge her age but I will tell you one thing, I am probably not 13 yrs. old like they say I am. I have the spirit and energy of a pup!
The sad part of my story is that I was picked up as evidence in a humane investigation. My life has not been very happy but I still have a great attitude. I would love any family that decided to give an "old girl" like me a chance for a happy life.
When I was brought to the shelter on Oct. 22, 2011 I only weighed 13 lbs. and was very emaciated. The shelter fed me good food and now I weigh 20 lbs. I'm actually getting a little chunky which no girl likes to admit but I haven't had much exercise here at the shelter.
A couple of the volunteers recently gave me a bath and boy, did I ever love that. I kept kissing the person who was holding me because I was so happy.
I am also a happy girl when I get to go into the play yard to run and sniff around. I am housebroken so the yard is nice for that too.
Hey, I also know how to sit on command, plus I have a very soft mouth when I take treats.
It's true that older dogs like me have a hard time finding a home, but I hope people can see what a cool dog I am. I promise that I would be very loving and sweet. I would even sit in your lap and watch T.V. with you if that would make you happy. PLEASE ADOPT ME, you won't be sorry!
