Doris' Mission Continues

 
 

Dear Jon,

All of us at the Doris Day Animal Foundation have been truly overwhelmed by your outpouring of love, condolences and donations for the “precious four-leggers” in memory of our dear Doris. She was a beloved friend and mentor to us and an inspiration to the world -- especially the animal welfare community. Your support meant the world to her and makes it possible for DDAF to continue its crucial work, funding other non-profit animal welfare organizations and programs that directly improve the lives of animals.

DDAF’s small, long-time staff and board of directors were personally selected or approved by Doris many years ago because we share her passion for making this a better world for the animals. We have dedicated a good part of our lives to Doris’ great cause and are just as invested in the important work we do as she was. We conscientiously strive to reduce expenses to cut overhead so that your donations can go to programs that directly benefit the animals. 

Please visit our Facebook page for stories and testimonials from our grantees so you can see specifically where your donations are put to work. Our annual IRS Form 990 can be found on our website, and if you haven’t visited lately, we invite you to get re-acquainted with our staff and our work. In short, we assure you that DDAF will continue to operate under the same rules and guidelines, dedicated to Doris’ vision and purpose to make her proud, as always.

While Doris’ tremendous career legacy will live on thanks to the technology of film, television, iTunes and YouTube, she founded DDAF and DDAL to carry out her life’s mission and the cause closest to her heart: helping animals and the people who love them. This was the legacy she wanted to leave the world, and all of us at DDAF are committed to keep her dream alive by continuing the critical work she started 41 years ago, per her wishes. Of course, we can’t do it without you, so on behalf of the millions of animals we’ve helped in the past and plan to help in the future, we send a big thank you for your support!

Gratefully yours,

More eggs, less work! Hentopia is in reach for every chicken-keeper.

As flock owners across the country know, chicken-keeping has many benefits. Hens make wonderful pets with bright personalities, and the easy access to breakfast food simply can’t be beat. But daily chores, regular coop cleanings, and predator worries can be overwhelming for the flock owner balancing the demands of a busy schedule or wanting to travel. Frank Hyman’s Hentopia solves the dilemma of how to tend chickens without feeling chained to the coop by offering creative inventions that streamline daily care and feeding requirements.

Backyard keepers looking to reduce their chores but keep their chickens will love Hentopia. The book features 21 low-cost, imaginative projects to help keep chickens safe, minimize the workload, and make use of salvaged and recycled materials. Hyman’s lively, humorous voice makes this an easy read, and clear instructions and colorful photography ensure that anyone – even those with minimal carpentry skills – can tackle these tasks. From building a coop to adding fun “enrichments” that make life more interesting for chickens — like a Chunnel (chicken tunnel), Jungle Gym, and Scratch-and-Snack Bar — the book includes projects perfect for inexperienced and seasoned chicken-keepers alike.
An innovative guide to simplifying the chicken chore routine, Hentopia helps backyard chicken-keepers and homesteaders reduce the time they spend on daily maintenance and care so they have more time to simply enjoy their feathered friends.

Stay Safe & Support Rescue Pets this 4th of July!
I am thinking of you, your family and your pets during this Fourth of July holiday! 
Since the world is a bit crazier than years past, I just want to give a brief reminder to keep your eyes open, stay safe, and never put you, your family or your pets in compromising situations during this holiday season.. 
In California and many places around the country, there is an enormous amount of illegal fireworks being set of, as you already know. Your pets’ simply cannot stand this horrible time and they become stressed to the point they can break out of anywhere!
There are many herbal remedies available for animals in many pet stores, which we highly recommend! From now through the Fourth of July, at any time, day or night, reckless people will be shooting off fireworks and trying to scare and hurt animals.
Keep your pets inside and monitor them when they are outside! Please, keep your cat safe as well! I don’t want to go into details about bad teenagers and people that can hurt your pets! If you see an animal being hurt, please call 911!
 I realize people want to go to parties and have fun but your pets have to be number one! Play gentle music loud enough to drown out as many noises as possible. TV programming that won’t upset your pets like a good movie or old-fashioned television shows that air constantly on different channels will also work to drown out the noise of fire crackers and M80s that unruly neighbors might be shooting off. Animals are able to hear the vibration way before you can! Put them away in a room… Just keep them safe! Don’t leave them in hot cars! 
We have been saving people’s pets that have been abandoned at shelters for the last three weeks, and now we are down to the wire as the holiday approaches! The shelters are clearing out as many abandoned pets, as they can to make room for people’s pets that run away from the fireworks!
 They are literally euthanizing really nice dogs and cats that just don’t deserve to be born to die because it’s the Fourth of July week! 
 Make sure your pets’ microchips are up-to-date! If you don’t have your dog or cat microchipped, maybe it is the time to make a veterinarian appointment and get one done! It’s a matter of finding your pet if they run away! Otherwise you’ll never see them again, that’s just the truth nowadays… I don’t want that for you. Below you will see some pictures of a few of the many dogs both small and large that we’ve been rescuing over the last few weeks. We still have many more coming in from a variety of shelters as we are trying to help out as much as we can all over Southern California. 
 Please donate! All donations will help save lives! It is an emergency fund raiser to help as many as we can. We still need food to feed them, portable water that has to be trucked in since we are in the high desert, baby pools for them to cool off in, in the high heat and we keep our window unit air conditioners working to cool down from the high heat so our electrical bills are pretty high!
No donation is too small or large! Right now the shelters are just begging for us to get the pets out to make room! We service our community. I volunteer all of my time in hours, crisscrossing the country, trying to educate on animal welfare, spay and neuter and stamp out animal abuse!
I am forever grateful for your love and support, and as usual we need it now more than ever during the summer! I’m counting on you.
 From the bottom my heart,
 Thank You & Stay Safe,
Linda Blair
