Barbaro


These donations were made by the members of FOB in honor of Barbaro. "Barbaro was an American thoroughbred racehorse who decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby, but shattered his leg two weeks later in the 2006 Preakness Stakes, ending his racing career and eventually leading to his death."

 

FOB stands for Fans of Barbaro. A group of animals lovers who came together online to follow Barbaro's recuperation process after breaking down in the 2006 Preakness, they stayed together even after he was euthanized in January 2007. They work in many ways to save the lives of dogs, cats, horses, and all animals. Many are active politically to increase awareness and encourage lawmakers to pass animal protection laws, ban horse slaughter, stop dog fighting, etc.

 

FOB members participate in a monthly effort to raise donations for "brick and mortar" rescues. Picking from names of rescues submitted by their members, one rescue is drawn each month. CVAS is honored to have been chosen as FOB's February recipient.

Brian


This is a tribute donation for my cat Brian. On June 22, 2012 on Old Arden Highway, Nancy trapped a male orange tabby who was described as "scared but friendly" on his intake paperwork. He went to HPAC in Woodinville, and I adopted him. I've had Brian for more than a year, and he is loving and fun and very happy. I know you have incredibly hard jobs with too many sad stories & too few resources. I hope this donation helps. P.S. A special thank you to Nancy for saving Brian!

Anakin


This donation is made in honor of Anakin, my colony kitten. I found him as a kitten when I was living in an apartment complex in Kettle Falls. My landlady and I would feed a colony of cats that lived there (and would try and spay and neuter them a few at a time when we could) and he was the runt of the litter. He had one really bad infected eye, so we decided to help him. I scooped him up, gave him a few flea baths and my landlady took him to the vet to get his eye treated and get him neutered. We were going to put him up for adoption at the Flour Mill and he was there for a few days, but nobody took him. So I did! :-) As you can see, his eye is all better and he grew up to be one beautiful boy!

Marco


This donation is made in honor of Marco. Marco is the wonderful dog I adopted from CVAS in July, 2011. He was an 11-month old Blue Heeler cross that the Sanctuary called Buddy. A very bouncy boy, as soon as we were introduced he said, "Take me! Take me!" So I did. He is now 2-1/2, and a little more mellow (just a little), but still totally in love with life. We go on two walks a day of at least a mile each, and he would like more. You'll see I'm a crutch user, so how in the world do I take Marco on long walks? With a rugged mobility scooter to which I have attached a retractable leash. It hooks on Marco's harness on top of his shoulders so doesn't choke him and doesn't get tangled under his legs. Unless he's being narky.  Oh, and yes, this scooter can even handle up to 4 or 5 inches of snow.

Marco's 2012 'field mouse kill' count was 8; bird kill 4. I simply LOVE my bouncy boy! Thank you for rescuing him so I could find and adopt him!
