Our Efforts to Help Katrina Victims
As was written about on my blog, we did a big collection of donations for those suffering from the effects of Katrina. Here are some of the pictures taken showing what we did and what other citizens of our county did when we all pulled together to help. Special thanks to the Oden School, the 1st Baptist church in Oden for allowing us to use of the church and spreading the message, and the mayor of Oden, who not only helped spread the word, but also stayed there the whole time the day we collected in Oden, helping to load our vehicles. IN all, three vehicles worth of items were collected and delivered, some in Shreveport, LA, and the rest here in Montgomery County when after our collection we found out that our county would be receiving some evacuees. They are now pretty well taken care of and only needing things like towels and washcloths and linens.

Even though this county is poverty-stricken, these folks pulled together to help out. Thank you Montgomery county citizens for showing the world what even a poor county can do when fellow
Americans are in need.

We will be doing more to gather more items needed and are about to foster animals. Tomorrow For the Sake of Animals, a no-kill shelter in Mena, AR, will be coming out to inspect our facilities before bringing animals here for us to foster. Mostly dogs, but some cats too, most likely. And, of course, we are still on Farm Sanctuary's list to accept chickens once they are allowed in to rescue them. We will take as many as possible because the animals we foster will be killed otherwise, as they are coming from Animal Control in Mena. We also had a book donated to For Sake the of Animals in Princess' name by http://www.NoVoiceUnheard.org]No Voice Unheard, who will send a book in your companion animal's name when you lose one.

We still need donations to build our chicken expansion, as we can only accept 12-20 right now without it built. After it is built, we can take in ten times that number. We need building supplies, especially 12 ft. high fencing and the poles that go with it, and it would be nice to have some help putting it up if anyone in this area comes across this post. You can help us save even more lives.

Thank you all for your support!
