Many of our adopters know how their family members arrived in New England to complete their family. Most of them arrived by van from New Orleans, from New York, from New Jersey. In 2006, 102 animals found their way through the doors of this rescue group -- most arriving in a 1994 Dodge mini-van that was retired in February 2007 for safety reasons.
And now it's time. It's time for the dogs to have a reliable vehicle. One that will pass inspection in 2007. One that the dogs can call their own. We have purchased a 2004 Ford E150 cargo van, loaded it strategically with crates, and signed our name on the loan papers.
We have a offer for matching funds for any donation to help defray the cost of this van. Any contributions are tax deductible. Want to help? [Info on Van Purchase]
If You Don't Know What's in Your Dog's Food -- You Probably Shouldn't be Feeding It.
I often speak to people as they're walking around the pet supply stores during a meet & greet event about dog food. I can't tell you how many times I've walked down the aisles, flipped bags of food over, and explained to someone what the ingredients in the food they were going to buy means and then pointed them to a better quality product.
Ironically, I read an article recently, too, about the cost of feeding a high quality food vs. a mass processed food. Even though you pay less for the bag of food, you have to feed more of the food in order to get the name nutritional value for the animals. In the end, it actually costs more to feed an inferior kibble. Here's the link: http://www.gooddogmagazine.com/dogfoodcosts.htm
People are often in amazement when I tell them that my 100 lb dog eats two cups of kibble a day. Admittedly, I have an 85 lb girl who also eats that, and she should be 80 lbs, and I really should be cutting her back (but she's a bit opportunist and is eating for other dogs too).
All of this brings me to the recent tragedy of contaminated pet food that recently rocked the pet-loving nation and killed many pets. I looked at the list of pet foods. Every one of them was a mass-produced, lower quality food (with the exception of Nutro, who has both a high end and a lower end product) using wheat gluten as a source of protein. While misfortunes can happen everywhere, I can only encourage everyone to read the packaging on the foods they feed their dogs. If you don't know what it is, you probably shouldn't be feeding it to your dog (and yes, I did Google "Wheat Gluten" to find out exactly what it was, because it's not in my dogs' food).
Attached is the Whole Dog Journal's list TOP 100 dog foods. If you've never done research on what's in your dog's food, this is eye opening.
Since 1998, I have been taking dogs from the Center for Animal Care & Control in New York City. In 2005, we moved 25 dogs into permanent homes from the city. In 2006, we moved 52 dogs into permanent homes from the city. The NYCACC takes in all stray and city impound dogs as well as owner turn ins and averages 3000 animals a month. Owners are allowed 72 hours to reclaim their dog, or the dog becomes available for adoption or may be euthanized. To get these dogs to safety, we need to move them to boarding space. DISCOUNTED boarding space in New York is $25/day. That gets expensive quickly and we need HELP with it.
Since the creation of Manhattan Mutts in August 2006, we have been able to bring in an additional ten deserving dogs, with more to come. Because of your generosity, Tyson, Bianca & Sam are safe.
