eNEWSLETTER - JULY 2006

Sent: June 28, 2006


Dear Friends,

I want to thank those of you who have called or written with all your words of support and encouragement. It means so very much to know you are all behind me and the work I have done with animals for all these many years.

We now have a court date, August 29th, and a very good lawyer who believes in our work and knows we aren't doing anything wrong.? I wish I could give you all the details: but, since our newsletters are being read by the very person causing all the hoorah over nothing, I am afraid that will have to wait.

I also want to thank the person who sent a donation toward our defense.? It is greatly appreciated.

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Bud, my deer rescuing partner. The lake he was building is not quite finished; but, even as it stands, it will provide a lot of water for the wildlife he so loved. The last time I saw him, he was still proud of that rescue we did together.? As I walked up to him, he said to the person he was talking to, "See this here little lady?? We saved us a deer right outten the creek, by gosh.? Just the two of us.? Pulled that buck right outta the silt and barbed wire, we did. Then it stood on the bank looking right back at us, jus? like it knew we saved his life. It was a sight, I tell you, a plumb beautiful sight to behold."? All I could do was nod my head in agreement. He was right. It was a "plumb beautiful sight to behold.

Last night I couldn't sleep, so I went for a drive past the lake. There in the moonlight, I could see four deer drinking from the mostly finished lake. One of them raised its head and looked directly at my truck, then went back to its water.? I sat there with my lights off and watched them as they started to move away. The tallest one again looked back at my truck. I opened the door and stood outside, looking at the deer as it looked back at me.? We stood there for maybe 30 seconds, just looking at each other.? Then he turned and led the small herd away. It probably wasn't the same deer, but it was still a fitting tribute to Mr. Bud.

We want to send great thanks to Connie Rice, Avis Buchanan and Dena Roesler (a second time) for your donations to help concrete our dog pens.?

STORIES FROM THE NEWS!?
?
A couple says they are thrilled to have their dog back nearly five years after it disappeared.? Holly and Troy Webb said they thought the worst when Gidget, their Lhasa Apso, ran away in 2001. But the South Bend (Indiana) Animal Control officials called the Webbs last week, saying they had found the dog, still wearing the collar and tags she had on when she disappeared.? The dog was found tied to the Animal Control office front door. Gidget is now 12-13 years old.? She came home with matted fur and moves a bit slower, but is otherwise all right.?? FROM MSNBC PET HEALTH - APRIL 6, 2006

Jack is a 10-year-old orange-and-white tabby in West Milford, NJ.? And when the cat spotted the bear in a neighbor?s yard...the clawless kitty let the bear know who?s boss.? The bear scurried up a tree and eyed the cat for 10 to 15 minutes, while Jack stared and hissed from the ground.? The bruin inched its way down before jumping off and running away.? But Jack chased the bear into the brush and up another tree.? That?s when Jack?s owner realized what was happening and called her cat.? Jack?s owner, Donna Dickeyi, tells the Star-Ledge of Newark Jack considers the area his turf and doesn?t want anyone in his yard.? FROM MSNBC PET HEALTH, OTHER PET NEWS.

A new chemical compound, part cat and part human, may provide an end to misery-making cat allergies, U.S. researchers reported.? And they said their approach in creating the compound may work against more dangerous allergies, such as deadly peanut allergies.? The compound, tested in mice bred to be allergic to cats, virtually shut down the histamine reaction that causes the uncomfortable symptoms of cat allergies such as runny eyes, sneezing and itching, Dr. Andrew Saxon of the University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine and colleagues reported.? Writing in the April issue of Nature Magazine, they said their compound also worked in human cells grown in lab dishes.? "This novel approach to treating cat allergies is encouraging news for millions of cat-allergic Americans.? Moreover, these results provide proof-of-concept for using this approach to develop therapies to prevent deadly food allergy reactions as well," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which paid for the study.The compound stops the allergic process.? It uses pieces of an allergy-providing protein found in cat saliva or dander called Fel d1, tied to a piece of human antibody called IgG Fcg1.? The UCLA team named it GFD, or gamma Feline domesticus..The researchers tested GFD in two types of allergic mice, and it blocked the immune over-response in both.? The approach could be used to protect people from a wide array of allergies, the researchers said.? FROM MSNBC - HEALTH, ALLERGIES & ASTHMA - MARCH 28, 2006.
