Hi everyone, I've started this thread as I'm trying to raise awareness for an awesome charity organisation known as Pet's Haven .. located in sunny Melbourne. Pet's Haven is a not for profit charity, run by volunteers. What set's Pet's Haven apart from any other pet rescue centre in Australia is; they are "pro life". Their policy is 'The first option is adoption' Where as many places like the RSPCA and Lort Smith will just euthanize animals, if they are unable to find a home for them between 7-14 days. I've put my money where my mouth is and Warcom's (and I'm struggling big time myself at the moment), my staff have also chipped in so far we've donated around $1500, not to mention countless hours of time and effort we've put in, and will continue to put in - but we're desperate now and we need your help. Our good friends at http://www.campaignmonitor.com have also come to the party by helping us our with access to their email marketing system for free - so we're extremely thankful to Ben, Dave and all the staff there. Things are getting pretty rough down at the shelter at the moment though, and they may be forced to close down, as they simple can't afford to pay their vet bills, their feed bills and all the other associated bills surrounding running everything. Before I say much else, I'd urge everyone to simply watch this video - it will explain the plight of what these amazing ladies do and the lady who started it all, more so than I ever will. Some people may find it distressing though, so man-to-man (albeit it, I'm more sensitive than most guys) .. I'd suggest you have a tissue handy. Tomorrow: I'm not really asking for much - but if all of us can chip in $5 or $10 bucks (heck, donate as much as you can really) the shelter will be able to stay open for at least another month or two, whilst we try and seek government funding, or funding from some place else to assist. Anything you can donate at all, will be great fully appreciated by all the volunteers at the shelter and I'm sure if the animals at the shelter could talk; like these guys: (we had them in our office last week). Ryder was about 3 days away from being destroyed, before Pet's Haven rescued him. Midnight was also rescue by Pets Haven - despite being blind in one eye, from a pre-pets-haven day, he's now a happy dog! They'd be eternally grateful. Your $5 or $10, could help save an animals life...
