The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
WE ARE OFFICIAL! We received the formal 501c3 approval from the IRS and are no longer "Status Pending!" We had been lead to expect the process to take approximately nine months and it took less than 30 days. I attribute this to Woody's talent and care in preparing the Form 1023 package and the written description of our sanctuary. The approval is retroactive to our incorporation date of January 2, 2008. Woohoo!
We could really use some financial help feeding the animals this month. As always, Woody is our main benefactor and he simply has no fundings this month. We spend $3,500 monthly just feeding the animals, not considering medications. If you can spare even a little, it would help us greatly! We have discontinued DeeDee's chemotherapy due to the financial constraints.
Hope has been missing since Sunday night. Words cannot accurately convey the pain and heartache this is causing us, but especially Woody. We have done everything we can imagine less going door to door, which we will do this weekend if she has not returned to us by then. I will blog more specifically later as we have learned much about what to do when you lose your baby.
Please hold the vision of Hope's safe and fast return to us.
