A request from my Husband, Please Help

A friend of his on the Octopus Overlords gaming forum
formed a Non-Profit 501(3)(c) in 2007. It is a No-Kill sanctuary for cats that have Feline Leukemia (FeLV) +/- Feline AIDS (FIV). They are looking for votes for the The Animal Rescue Site $100,000 Shelter+ Challenge. There is no need to register and you can vote once a day.

Here is the link to the original post on OO:

Help my Cat Sanctuary win $100K

This is an open forum, so there should be no need to register to view.

MODS, if this an inappropriate post, please remove. Slight Pimping of my Non-Profit – Froggie’s Pond incoming 🙂

As some of you might remember (or not), My wife and I formed a Non-Profit 501(3)(c) in 2007. It is a No-Kill sanctuary for cats that have Feline Leukemia (FeLV) +/- Feline AIDS (FIV). We have grown to around 15 resident cats which have a combination of either disease. We have done quite well with our fund-raising efforts and just had a successful yard sale that will pay our bills for another 10-12 months. Here are a couple links to PDF’s of our Sanctuary brochures telling our story and talking about some of our cats.

The jist of this post is to see if the OO Hive can help my shelter garner some more funding. Petfinder.com is running a $100K Shelter Challenge. The National shelter with the most votes as of December 2008 wins the Grand Prize, there are also smaller prizes for state winners and random drawings.

I’m asking you to help us with this ‘Popularity Contest.’ If you don’t want to help Froggie’s Pond out, well then toss your vote behind your local Animal Rescue group.

Here’s how you can vote for Froggie’s Pond :

No need to register on the site or anything just

1) Go to http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/shelterchallenge.faces?siteId=3&link=ctg_ars_shelterchallenge_from_home_sidetabs
2) Select MI in the State Drop down box.
3) Enter Battle Creek in the City Box
4) Press Search
5) Vote for Froggie’s Pond once the next page comes up
6) Confirm your vote by tying the name of the animal in the ‘captcha’
7) Repeat every 24 hours if desired 🙂

The Cats and I really thank you for your time and help.

Again if this pimping is inapropriate, please remove this post as the Moderators see fit. Thanks

Ben (aka Crabbs) & Sara & the Felines

💚Love those green eyes!💚 Pretty Miss Jade #cat #blackcat #greeneyedblackcat My baby girl, Drusilla MamaKitty. She turned 11yrs old this this year in July. She is the ruler of this house and the Mama of everyone. She can actually say words too, her favorites are “Mom”, “No”, and “Now”. Somewhere I have a video of her talking. She doesn’t talk as often now as she did when she was younger. I wish I had a better pic of her eyes though. She has the prettiest aqua colored eyes. #cat #myfurbaby Faerie Blossom Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers Diamond Tweed Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers This tank and shawl set are actually from 2 separate patterns that I found on Ravelry. The Wing Span Shawl made in Tunisian Crochet by Oana Oros and the Custom Tank Top Version # 1 by Jane Sharp. I really love them together and they’re both made with Bernat Softee Baby in the Girly Girl colorway. The shawl clip is a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. #crochet #crochettank #crochetshawl #crochetwrap #notmypatterns Another idea for my bag. It has a single strap that goes across the body. I’ve been using this one and have found a few things I’d like to change in the newer versions. #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetbag #crochetsinglestrapbackpackbag
