Hello, we are Tina & Curtis and We need your help in raising enough money so we can continue helping the homeless cats in our community get the Vet care that they desperately need. We have helped them for over 13 years. Please donate today! Thank you!

HELLO MY NAME IS TINA AND OUR STORY IS A LONG ONE SO I WILL TRY TO SUM IT UP QUICKLY AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WOULD LIKE FURTHER INFORMATION PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO SEND ME A MESSAGE........MY HUSBAND AND I ARE PASSIONATE ANIMAL LOVERS.  WE HAVE FED AND CARED FOR A COLONY OF OVER 100 HOMELESS CATS FOR OVER 13 YEARS NOW.  WE HAVE HAD OVER 300 CATS FIXEDTHROUGH OUR TNR PROGRAM IN OUR HOME TOWN OF RENO, NEVADA.  WE FEED AND WATER THESE CATS EVERYDAY AND WE ALSO PROVIDE THE VET CARE THEY NEED WHEN THEY ARE SICK, INJURED, OR NEED TO BE HUMANELY EUTHANIZED. WE DO THIS BECAUSE THESE HOMELESS CATS HAVE NOBODY LOOKING OUT FOR THEM AND WE COUDLN'T SIT AROUND AND WATCH THEM SUFFER, SO WE CHOSE TO BE THEIR VOICE.

THE REASON FOR OUR FUNDRAISER IS BECAUSE WE HAVE USED OUR PERSONAL CARE CREDIT VET CARDS TO CHARGE THE NEEDS OF ALL THESE HOMELESS CATS BECAUSE THERE ARE NO RESOURCES OFFERED TO HELP THEM.  THEY WOULD JUST BE EUTHANIZED, OR SUFFER WITHOUT OUR HELP.  OUT OF THE KINDNESS OF OUR HEARTS WE STEPPED IN MANY YEARS AGO TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT. 

NOW WE ARE AT A POINT WHERE WE HAVE MAXED OUT THE VET CARDS AND HAVE A BIG VET BILL TO PAY OFF BEFORE WE CAN HELP MORE HOMELESS ANIMALS.  HOWEVER, THE DESPERATE PLEA FOR DONATIONS IS BECAUSE WE ALSO HAVE RESCUE DOGS OF OUR OWN AND IN FEBRUARY OF THIS YEAR ONE OF OUR DOGS (THE BROWN ONE) STARTED TO HAVE GRAND MAL SEIZURES.  HE HAS BEEN ON MEDICATION EVER SINCE THEN AND WE KEEP ADJUSTING HIS MEDS BECAUSE HE CONTINUES TO HAVE SEIZURES ABOUT EVERY 6 WEEKS.  SO WE ARE STILL WORKING ON HIM.  HIS MEDS WERE JUST ADJUSTED AGAIN AFTER ANOTHER SEIZURE ON NOVEMBER 12TH.  HE NOW TAKES 4 PILLS OF PHENOBARBITAL A DAY.  HE ALSO SUFFERS FROM SEVERE SEPARATION ANXIETY.  WE ADOPTED HIM FROM OUR LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY.

OUR 2ND RESCUE IS A DOBERMAN PINSCHER NAMED PICASSO.  HE WAS RESCUED FROM EUTHANASIA AT JUST ONE WEEK OLD BECAUSE HE WAS BORN WITH A DEFORMITY CALLED "ELECTRODACTYLY" WHICH IS NICKNAMED LOBSTER CLAW BECAUSE HIS PAW AND LEG LOOK LIKE A LOBSTER CLAW.  HE IS JUST 2 YEARS 4 MONTHS OLD AND HE BECAME VERY ILL 6 WEEKS AGO AND ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL AND AFTER A FEW TRIPS BACK AND FORTH AND MANY TESTS HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH "ADDISON'S DISEASE".  SO NOW BOTH DOGS REQUIRE LIFE-LONG MEDICATIONS DAILY AND THE COST FOR BOTH MEDS AT THIS TIME IS $200 AND THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE THE BLOOD TESTS THEY NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON THEIR BLOOD COUNTS TO ADJUST THEIR MEDICATIONS OR ANY EMERGENCIES THAT MAY COME UP.

I WOULD NEVER EXPECT ANYONE TO PAY FOR OUR OWN PETS, BUT SINCE WE HAVE USED ALL CREDIT FOR THE HOMELESS PETS WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED FOR YOUR HELP SO WE CAN TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN FUR BABIES IN THEIR TIME OF NEED AND KEEP THEM HEALTHY.  IF WE COULD ASK YOU ALL TO DONATE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AND TO SHARE OUR LINK OR CHALLENGE OTHERS TO MATCH YOUR DONATIONS.  WE HAD AN AWESOME SURPRISE DONOR- A FAMOUS COMEDIAN, ELAYNE BOOSLER WITH HER FOUNDATION TAILS OF JOY WAS SO GENEROUS TO DONATE TO OUR CAUSE!  WE CAN'T THANK HER ENOUGH.

PLEASE EVERYONE WE WOULD NOT ASK FOR HELP IF WE DIDN'T NEED IT SO DESPERATELY BAD.  WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO HELP OUR OWN PETS AND WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO HELP MORE OF THESE HOMELESS CATS OR THEY WILL SUFFER WITHOUT US.  WE HAVE SHARED A LOT OF PHOTOS OF SOME OF THE CATS WE HAVE HELPED OVER THE YEARS AND PHOTOS OF OUR DOGS THAT NEED YOUR HELP. THEY ARE THE BEST OF FRIENDS AND NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION AT ANYTIME BECAUSE OF THEIR HEALTH ISSUES. 

TIS' THE SEASON OF GIVING AND WE ARE ASKING ALL OF YOU TO DONATE YOUR CHANGE JARS OR THE MONEY FOR THAT CUP OF COFFEE, OR ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN.  EVEN $1.00 HELPS US GET CLOSER TO OUR GOAL.  THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS AND FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR FUR BABIES PAWS!
