With all the money that is floating around Hollywood and other ritzy areas of the world, surely there has to be someone who can help this organization. I know that if I had the money, I would donate as much money as I could to animal welfare. There is nothing sadder than to see animals who can't fend for themselves, who have been abused in one way or another, to look into their eyes and see nothing there, no life, no light, no hope, they are not stupid, they know what is going on and I believe that every animal that has been helped by a human, even though they are feral or wild, I believe they are grateful for that one last chance for a good life.

A wonderful woman I know, AnneMarie Boos of Chico rescued a dog, which had a huge cancerous tumor & was out at a residence tied up for years on Highway 99. It cost thousands to cover the medical care. She too for years has gone out at 3 or 4 am in the morning feeding feral cats near Costco. She takes many in to be fixed and covers these costs too for other medical care they need. I agee with your comments "Kanuck" that abused animals just like people lose the light in their eyes. We forget eyes are the mirror to the soul.

The story said one animal from Roberta's sanctuary has appeared on Jay Leno. I wonder if Leno would help get the word out if someone from the media or a local club or organization alerted him to the situation.

Not many people read the CNR... They need to try to get a bigger news source to help get them the help they need. Unfortunately in these tough economic times, no one has the extra money to help out.

Ten cars and one bus per day? What a joke. Who's to say the corporate toadies running Butte County won't clamp down on the new location? All it will take is a few "complaints." On the other hand, the Supervisors recently refused to lift a finger to regulate a dirt bike track in a residential neighborhood. Dirt bikes good, animals bad. Pitiful.

Anyone know the address to send a donation?
Is anyone up there organizing a phoning/writing campaign to H.D. or O.S.H. or Lowe's, etc. to donate lumber or chain fencing?

I don't have a picture of where Kirshner's Rescue/Care Foundation is located in Durham presently. Who are the complainers? Since they feel so strongly perhaps they'd contribute to help the move? That'd be nice.

Also, is anyone organizing helpers for the big move?

Thanks Robin Epley for this article. Perhaps you can follow up with additional info. That'd be great. I hope the community and animal lovers anywhere come together in this.

Also, what about well-known animal-rights advocates like Betty White, Bob Barker?, Letterman? Doris Day? et. al.?
And what is that saying that puts forth something like "our civilization's survival is determined by how we treat our animals"?
My Best Wishes for the Kirshner Foundation and all its beloved inhabitants and volunteers.
Sincerely,
Jean McKay
