Had a great time at the hobo hotel for cats charity auction! I found THE ONE rabbit related item (it’s a silver tray) and had to bid on it. Austin’s mom won a huge gift basket full of fall goodies from bath and body works for me. All proceeds go to helping the kitties so it’s for a good cause of course. Always happy to help animal shelters when I can! 



This is a high kill shelter in Chicago. They need to be fostered (or foster to adopt) through a rescue. There is a list of approved rescues linked in the photo. Mark your application to the rescue “URGENT”. 

If you cannot foster, please pledge on them and/or share them in case someone else sees them who can foster.

Animal control really shows how disgusting people are. Someone was evicted from their house and just left all of their animals behind. Their cages were disgusting and probably were just left for dead. Luckily an officer got a call on the property and now 2 dogs, a cat, a turtle, a guinea pig and a bird are in our care.

Im sorry but if i lost my house, we’d be living all together in my car no questions asked.

I just tell keep telling myself that we’re meant to be, just not right now.
Because something always brings me back to you.
—  He has a girlfriend, I’ve got a boyfriend. I’m happy, so is he. But I still think we are meant to be. The feelings we share can’t be for nothing.

The City of Atlanta on Friday demanded a controversial downtown homeless shelter pay $600,000 for long-overdue water bills or go dry in a week — hours after rejecting a $100,000 payment.

In horrifying news, Atlanta seems to be trying to shut down the Peachtree-Pine homeless shelter, which provides hundreds of people with a place to sleep.

The above article mentions “the city and its allies in the downtown business community and neighborhood associations [have] long wanted the shelter closed.” State Senator Vincent Fort points out the shamelessness with which Mayor Kasim Reed will shell out $300 million for a stadium but considers $400k a dealbreaker for a homeless shelter.

It does bear pointing out that Peachtree-Pine has a long history of problems and criticism of its management.

My local volunteer group is looking for toy donations to distribute to the kids at one of our local homeless shelters. I would like to take this a step further and make sure every child also receives a book during the holidays. 

So yeah, my local group is doing one of those toy donation box things for Christmas (yes, they say holidays, but we all know Santa will be involved). 

I want to see these kids get a book as well. Book ownership has repeatedly been directly shown to affect literacy rates, reading levels, and scholastic ability. These affects are especially marked in low income and other at-risk children.

Please help me get these kids their own books to read and love. It’s not just important for the here and now, but will directly affect their future. If you cannot help, please signal boost.
