Give outdoor cats a helping paw this winter. Help us reach our goal of $20,000 by Dec. 18. Donate today!
 

Jon,

Cats are resourceful and resilient animals — but they still need help sometimes, especially during this time of year. We need to raise $20,000 by December 18 to help more cats and kittens this winter — can they count on your urgent support right now?

Cats can survive in the colder months, but sometimes well-meaning people bring them to shelters. And as you know, the vast majority of cats who enter shelters do not make it out alive.

Jon, you can save the lives of cats and kittens with an urgent winter gift to Alley Cat Allies. Please give the most generous gift you can right now — and together we can protect these animals during the winter season.

For the cats,

Becky Robinson

Dear Friends,
Over the holiday weekend, Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation stepped in and saved 9 dogs that were in danger of losing their lives. These dogs were rescued from a Northern, CA. shelter. Due to the fires in Northern California and the overpopulation crisis of pets going on, these 9 dogs became an emergency rescue. California is still in emergency mode and rescues are still needed. We have been rescuing and doing what we can. Everyday, I am receiving sad emails of dogs in jeopardy. It takes hours every night to go through the emails and it is heart wrenching to see all these innocent animals facing euthanasia if they are not adopted or rescued. Please, please make a much needed donation today. These are difficult times and we need donations to help save more lives.

Will you consider giving a senior dog or cat a home this Thanksgiving?

Hi,

Senior pets are often the last to be adopted from shelters, putting them at increased risk of euthanasia. When you adopt a senior pet, you’re not only welcoming a lifetime of love into your home, you’re also saving a life.

If you do decide to bring a senior dog or cat home, I'm sure they will be forever thankful to have a warm home and a loving family this holiday season.

To learn more about how and where you can adopt, click the image above or here.  If you would prefer to reach out to us directly, send us a note.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Dave Merrick

About The Algonquin Cat:

For many years the history of The Algonquin Cat was believed to have its origins in the 1930’s, when a stray cat came wandering into the hotel for food and water.  After the hotel acquired an out-of-print book written by the hotel’s first general manager, Frank Case, a chapter was discovered about a cat named Billy. Based on the timeline of the book, the hotel is now proud to say the lineage of The Algonquin Cat dates back to the early 1920's. Two days after Billy passed, a stray cat wandered into the hotel and The Algonquin welcomed Rusty. The famous classical actor, John Barrymore, was a resident at the time in the early 1930's and Rusty was renamed Hamlet in his honor. Hamlet is said to have been Barrymore's greatest stage role. The hotel has had a total of 11 cats, including Billy. The lineage includes seven Hamlets and three Matildas. Each cat that has reigned at The Algonquin has been a rescue. In 1980, author Hilary Knight immortalized The Algonquin Cat with his cartoons for a children’s book on which he collaborated with Val Schaffer. The current Matilda began her residence in December 2010.Today, Matilda is looked after by the hotel’s Chief Cat Officer, Alice De Almeida. The hotel’s executive chef cooks her special meals on holidays. She receives fan mail and gifts constantly, from around the world, including Japan, Australia and Russia. Matilda can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. She can also be reached via e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

“Everyone knows that season four of Scandal is set to premiere tonight on ABC – and that everyone is desperate to know where Olivia Pope jetted off to. But there’s an even bigger scandal out there that the ASPCA wants to uncover: pet homelessness. In fact, the biggest scandal of all is that there are millions of pets in shelters across this country who just want a loving home. Well, the ASPCA wants to fix that.

By creating these six e-cards featuring famous lines from the show with animals available for adoption right now at the ASPCA Adoption Center, the organization would like to remind everyone to make pet adoption their first option and help get a handle on the number of homeless animals waiting in shelters for loving homes.”

About Matilda: The longstanding tradition of having a “house feline” at The Algonquin began in the 1930s, when hotel owner Frank Case took in a stray. The first seven Algonquin cats were males, all named Hamlet, while subsequent felines have been females, all named Matilda. The current Matilda has reigned since December 2010, welcoming guests at the Front Desk, while still maintaining her modest if slightly haughty style. She is a beautiful Ragdoll adult cat who never reveals her age.

The Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation is built of a group of inspired, motivated humanitarians who work tirelessly to fight animal cruelty by educating the public, animal rescue, and finding loving families to give the helpless a second chance at a happy life. Founded by Oscar nominated and renown animal activist Linda Blair to bring the much needed attention to the growing problems related to animal welfare and the work required to stop animal abuse and neglect.

 

What We Do…

Linda Using the Pet Walker-Plus

LBWF is a unique safe haven for animals providing top-quality, lifelong care to the animals it rescues.

We emphasize proper nutrition, provide first-class veterinary care, comfortable facilities, training, socializing, and of course, an abundance of love.

Using the media as an outlet for education, we hope to raise the level of awareness on important issues such as pet overpopulation and dog fighting, as well as debunking the unfounded, illogical and fear-based arguments that all too often lead to breed-specific bans and the heartbreaking extermination of beautiful animals whose only crime is having been born.

The recent economic recession and financial crisis have resulted in a record number of foreclosures and people aren’t the only ones to suffer in times like these. Homelessness is a harsh reality facing more and more animals, as people heartlessly abandon them or are reluctantly forced to leave them behind at already overcrowded shelters because they can no longer afford to care for them.

Please help us give these loving, loyal and wonderful animals a safe place to live a happy life. There are a variety of ways you can help, from making a tax-deductible cash donation, purchasing something from our CafePress store or bidding on one of Linda’s eBay auction items to volunteering at our facility or becoming a desperately needed foster family for our rescues.

Increasing Our Impact

After 3 long years of searching, the foundation’s journey came full circle with the acquisition of an A2 zoned property in Acton, CA. The property is beautiful and provides a wonderful temporary home to animals that have been through so much.

We’re very proud of how far we’ve come and incredibly thankful for the donations of both money and time from our dedicated supporters, friends and volunteers. Much has been accomplished, but we still have a long way to go!

We are constantly working to construct additional buildings to shelter our rescued animals from high desert winds and cold. We’re also busy installing additional fencing and plumbing, as well as creating new play yards – just to list a few of the ongoing projects that help us meet our animals’ most basic needs.

Always on our shopping list…

  • Wire Crates 42″-48″
  • Chain Link
  • Recycled Plywood
  • Trees for shade and wind protection
  • Dog food
  • Dog Treats
  • Dog Toys
  • Dog Beds
  • Blankets
  • Collars and Leashes
  • Stainless Steel Water and Food Bowls
  • Heavy Duty garbage bags
  • Paper towels

These gift cards can always be put to good use…

  • Home Depot or Lowe’s Gift Cards
  • PetSmart or Petco Gift Cards

Our “wouldn’t it be wonderful” wish list…

  • Cargo Van for transporting animals
  • Energy and Water Efficient Washer (top loading) and Dryer
Looking Into The Future

Ultimately our goal is to build a reliable and smooth-running facility that will allow Linda to focus much of her attention on educating the public about critical issues such as overpopulation, the importance of having pets spayed or neutered, animal abuse, neglect and the plight of woefully misunderstood breeds like American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier – often collectively referred to as “Pit Bulls”.

While our first priority is to provide a loving and safe environment for our rescued animals, fundamentally we hope to have an impact on a much larger and far-reaching scale. Ours is a mission of education that will help people develop the same respect, love and admiration for animals that we have.

Together We CAN Make A Difference!
