Fostering Can Help Shelters During COVID-19

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Like everything else Animal Shelters & Rescues are feeling the effects of the events unfolding. Donations are down & in some places, volunteer visits are restricted.

Donations are always needed, especially now but what would be even more beneficial is adopting or fostering an animal. One less mouth to feed can reduce the financial stress at a shelter or rescue. There are many animals, not just cats & dogs in shelters. Rats, bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs & birds just to name a few.

Consider your neighbors too. Can you foster a pet if their human is hospitalized?

Of course with fostering there is always the risk of becoming a ‘foster failure’. That’s when you fall hopelessly in love with your foster & fully adopt a new best furiend. How horrible. BOL!!!

I encourage anyone who could possibly provide a home for an animal, any animal to do so during these troubling times. It can be a wonderful experience having a four legged companion, one that will enrich your lives.

If you already have a full home, consider making a donation to your local shelter. See if you can volunteer too. Make a call, see how you can help.

I would also ask at this time for you to consider making a donation to the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy. They are seeing a rising number of requests for financial help as more humans are laid off work. The epilepsy monster doesn’t take a break & AED’s (anti epilepsy drugs) are costly.

Remember, we are all in this together.

Stay home if you’ve been told too.

International Purple Day 2020

News

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. I know a lot of you are now working from home. I hope you’re still wearing your finest purple, because it’s Purple Day, a global movement to raise epilepsy awareness. 

If you need a break from the interwebs, have some fun with your four legged companion. Dress up in your finest purple or find something purple in your home,  then snap a pic or two. Be creative, jammies are acceptable. BOL! 

Then you can post the pics on my Facebook page, “Oh, The Life of Olivia”. I’ll share them to the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy page. For those of you who can, please consider making a donation. 

Stay strong everyone. Stay home if you’ve been asked to.
