As a well known animal rescue advocate and dedicated cross poster I am now in desperate need of help to secure permanent housing . I am  now living in a van with my 2 precious service dogs because I won't abandon them in a kill shelter .Its been raining like crazy and we are alone  cold and feeling pretty hopeless at this point .This IS NOT EASY FOR ME TO ADK YOU FOR YOUR HELP

A hand up from my fellow rescuers and advocates with this fundrazr will not only restore my faith in humanity .  (Which after the last 10 yrs  of abuse and isolation and the horrors I see every day in rescue work I must say my faith in humanity has to this point been  non existent .) But it will also get me back to doing the work you know I am all about .HELPING ANIMALS  I am praying that there is hope for us somewhere out there . Will you help me get off the street out of the rain and onto a home that includes my needed and loved dogs and is free of abuse or someone telling me I must get rid of them metely because the weigh more than a cat They are my reason for getting up and smiling each day 

My dogs are all I have left and are My family as well as needed for my PTSD helping me sleep at night and giving me purpose .I would never be able to sleep without heavy narcotics and since leaving the abuse 2 yrs ago and being reunited with my dogs I have been able to sleep and am no longer in need of meds to manage my severe insomnia and panick  attacks.  All because of rescue work and my dogs.  

Without a home to call our own I fear losing my dogs .and my ability to go back to work rescuing animals  This is why I am asking you all  for your help ,to end this homelessness and get back into a house with my dogs so I can return to making progress and to my passion . Helping animals.  


I promised them we would be together FOREVER I meant Forever .And I meant NO MATTER WHAT ! 

 I will not break my promise to my dogs and with  most of my family being dead or not able to help we are now living in this painfully cold  van until we can raise funds to get in to another house.At first it   wasn't so bad and now the weather has turned colder  and soon it will  snow here this fact is making it hardereach day we are out here .Itscalready been a month and We are literally out in the wilderness in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Foothills near Yosemite with no one to help us but and  we  are  freezing at night and roasting by day when not being drenched in storms .and if that's not enough we are now  even  being stalked by a local mountain lion who twice now has tried to make a meal of my  babies in the last 10 days and has left me  fearing another  attack. This lion has been seen by other locals too and is reported in last  weeks Union Democrat . Even just walking around to go to the bathroom is a serious risk  for us  with the lion knowing we are  here  seeing  us as potential meals .So until the big cat moves  on or has been killed we  are  confined to the safety of our  van .Just the other night both dogs were sitting with me by the van and saw the huge male cat near by then took off after it and ran it up a tree . It took a swipe at Annie during the confrontation and .You can see in the  posted picture we took of this cat  whole staring down at us on the other side of the gully . It  left claw marks down Annies back

Please consider helping a dedicated rescue advocate who now needs rescue herself from the perils of homelessness 

The solution is only a donation away !  

Every penny of your contributions will be used for  deposit money needed to rent or for the needed   down payment  to OWN  one of the mobile homes available currently  for under $15,000  in Sonoras Tammarand  Estates 55+ mobile home park  where I can live safely with my Forever family again . I am on SSI and can pay the monthly but only if I can come up with the down payment of $ 3000 or less . Less than the cost of a decent used car  I could be in a decent HOME with both my FurBabies ,

 Please know that every dollar will be spent to get us safely into permanent housing and back to aggressively making life better for animals in need everywhere and anyway I can .
