Do you work for a company that utilizes utility carts for maintenance? Perhaps a farm, ranch, stables, winery, golf course, sanctuary, tour operator, or warehouse - anyone who utilizes basic ATV Utility vehicles?

Our staff cannot continue lugging huge bags of food and litter from one building to another, especially in this heat. We're looking for a company or individual open to partnering with us by donating a used utility vehicle. Got an idea? Message us. Know someone getting rid of one? Ask them if they'd consider donating? Are you a business interested in a community support partnership? Let us know. We'd be humbled and grateful, and of course a tax receipt would be provided.

Bwindi Community Program is cautiously cheering the schools re-opening in Uganda. The students who expected to graduate in December of 2020 are heading back to their classrooms. If this goes well, more students will also return to school. It is a safety-minded, phased, re-opening and BCP hopes it goes well. The need for donations to the Children's Aid Fund just became more acute. If a sponsor is no longer able to help, this is the fund that will keep a student in school until new support is found. Any amount will be appreciated and the smile from Uganda will be bright! Call Jan Tanis at 204-1135 for help or donate online at BwindiCommunityProgram.org. Other Donations page.

See all wishes from Crossing Worlds Hopi Projects

Description

A concerned group from the Hopi village of Shungopavi see the coronavirus is spreading fast and are concerned about the safety of people in their village. There are 61 active cases in Shungopavi (as of 7-1-20). 
 
"We are reaching out for supplies that will sustain life and the health of our people. We want to have all the necessities they need on hand so we can secure the village and do our best to kill the virus in our village.   This will allow people to stay in place and not leave the village so we can have a total lock down for as long as needed." (Shungopavi Cultural Arts spokesman)

"Today, Shungopavi is the sole remaining Hopi Village that still maintains and performs the complete Traditional Ceremonial Cycle.” (source: Village of Shungopavi website).

Crossing Worlds Hopi Projects, a Sedona-based non-profit, welcomes:
• Tax-deductible monetary donations to purchase supplies dedicated to Shungopavi Emergency Support can be made at https://www.crossingworlds.org/make-a-donation 
• Donations of dry goods food and hygiene supplies can be dropped off at: Sedona Artist Market between 10 am and 4 pm daily (2081 W. 89A, next to Harkins Theatre).

The June 2nd date for re-opening schools in Uganda has come and gone, with a delay imposed of 30 days. Many schools have day students and teachers that commute to the classroom each day. The government is taking this additional time to make sure it can take temperatures and test those who will be leaving the campus and returning each day. Students who are at home working to keep up their studies, will face additional costs to do research online, etc. The Children's Aid Fund is Bwindi Community Program's source of help for these students. You can help immensely, with a donation of any size on the website or by check. Go to: bwindicommunityprogram.org or call Jan Tanis at 928-204-1135.

Bottles and Formula Needed for Tiny Orphaned Kittens

See all wishes from Verde Valley Humane Society

Description

A kitten's best chance for survival is with mom, not in a shelter. We do not have the resources to care for kittens without a mother, who may need to be bottle-fed and haven't built up their immunity.

But we also don't want to turn away people who find a kitten and want to help. So we're putting together some supplies and instructions to help those people care for the kittens at home until they are big enough to eat on their own, get spayed/neutered and if necessary, come back to us for adoption.

The problem - we're quickly running out of kitten bottles and milk replacement. If you can help, we are in need of KMR or PetLac brand liquid milk replacement (small packs preferred), and bottles designed specifically for kittens (PetAg is one brand - there may be others). They may be hard to find locally, but PetSense or Tractor Supply in Cottonwood or PetSmart in Sedona may have them. You can also shop online at Chewy, Amazon, or even Amazon.

Donations can be dropped of at VVHS during regular business hours or shipped to Verde Valley Humane Society at 1520 W. Mingus, Cottonwood, AZ 86326. Thank you!

Ugandan Education during a Pandemic

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

nopic

Description

The children will not return to Uganda schools until pubic transportation can be allowed to function. Hopefully, this will be soon since the country has done a very good job of locking down and containing the spread of the disease. When the reopening takes place, Bwindi Community Program will scramble to pay the tuition and fees for 75 students. The Children's Aid Fund will be the tool to help those whose sponsors are no longer able to provide their support. Please help us make this Fund sufficient to handle the crisis. A donation of any size is wonderful. Pay online at BwindiCommunityProgram.org or call Jan Tanis for assistance at 982-204-1135. Education will make the world a better place!

A simple request for peanut butter

See all wishes from Verde Valley Humane Society

Description

Peanut butter. It's a small thing that means a lot to a bored dog waiting to be adopted. "Kong time" when our staff and volunteers distribute Kongs stuffed with peanut butter is the best time of day for our dogs. They get a snack, a chew toy, playtime and quiet time all rolled into one and they so look forward to it. Sadly, We've run out of peanut butter, though, and a Kong just isn't the same without it (we tried!). If you can help, we need smooth peanut butter - any brand, but NOT chunky and NOT sugar free. We are open if you would like to drop some off (keep social distancing in mind and wear a mask if possible), or order online (we'll post a suggested link in the comments) and have it sent to VVHS, 1520 W. Mingus, Cottonwood, AZ 86326. THANK YOU!

Our virtual fundraiser was a success - thank you!

See all wishes from Plan B for Wolves

Description

Thank you to @SedonaWishList from @savewolvesplanb for a wish fulfilled!

We hosted our first ever virtual fundraiser by showing the film @BeingwithAnimals by filmmaker @Salome Pitschen featuring Sedona’s very own animal communicator @maiakincaid and in collaboration with @DeborahRossum. The live Q&A after the film was fun and very educational.

We would highly recommend all nonprofits look at doing a virtual event to help stay top of mind in the community and with their donors while raising funds.

Here are some of the comments we received post event:

“I simply loved this film and will watch it again today because there is so much to absorb and learn.”

“Thank you for hosting this evening during the COVID crisis when it is so important to be reminded that we are literally not alone – we have the companionship of our beloved animals, and we can communicate with them on so many levels. It is easy to forget when we are wrapped up in the external concerns of the COVID disease. But for the first time in many days, I felt a huge sense of relief and comfort in falling asleep with my pups right next to me. Thank you for that gift.”

“Thank you for your fantastic efforts in getting this film out to folks all over and for the work you do with Plan B to Save Wolves.”

“Thanks to all of you for making and presenting this important, striking and enjoyable film!”

Ten Reasons to Volunteer with Verde Valley Caregivers

See all wishes from Verde Valley Caregivers

Description

Discussions with current volunteers have revealed ten reasons why folks should volunteer to help their elderly or disabled neighbors as part of the Verde Valley Caregivers.
Reason #1: Make a Difference in Your Community
VVCC is a network of people helping neighbors. As our population ages, every year there is an increasing need for assistance to elderly who want to stay in their own homes. At some point in time, most can no longer drive themselves. Without a convenient transit system, getting to medical appointments and running basic errands, such as grocery shopping, can be impossible.
VVCC fills this gap by providing over 2,200 older adults and adults with disabilities with transportation, shopping assistance, friendly visits, handyperson help and other services to help them stay in their own homes. Volunteer, John Wozniak, shares the importance of this goal to him. “Anything to help people stay in their own homes. It breaks my heart to see people sitting around in care centers.” He says, “neighbors are very gracious and very grateful.” He finds the work “very fulfilling”.

Eurythmy is an expressive movement art originated by Rudolf Steiner in conjunction with Marie von Sivers in the early 20th century. Primarily a performance art, it is also used in education, especially in Waldorf schools for therapeutic purposes. The word Eurythmy stems from Greek roots meaning beautiful or harmonious rhythm.

At Verde Valley Humane Society, we are committed to upholding a high standard of care for every animal at our shelter and to make every effort to give each animal a forever home. That means the average time the animals are cared for at the shelter is longer than before and the costs of care are higher. With veterinary costs continuing to rise, and more animals coming in every day, your donations are more critical than even before.

Your gift today can help ensure the most vulnerable in our society - the ill and injured, the lost, the unwanted, and the orphans - always have a safe place to go when they need it. Donate in person at our Adoption Center, 1520 W. Mingus in Cottonwood, by calling 928-634-7387, or online at https://verdevalleyhumanesociety.org/make-a-donation/ Thank you for your support!

Pet Fosters Needed

See all wishes from Verde Valley Humane Society

Description

Fostering a pet is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. When you foster, you agree to take a homeless dog, cat, puppy or kitten into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time to recover from injury or illness or to grow old enough for adoption. The length of time a foster pet may stay in your home varies with the animal’s situation.

By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you’re freeing up a spot so VVHS can take in another dog or cat in need; giving your foster pet the time he needs to be ready for adoption; helping VVHS learn more about the pet so he or she will end up in the best home possible; and socializing the dog or cat to a home environment, other pets and different types of people.

To be a successful foster parent, you will need a compassionate nature, the cooperation of your family or roommates, flexibility, and some knowledge of animal behavior.

For more information about fostering a pet for Verde Valley Humane Society, call 928-634-PETS, email mclark@verdevalleyhumanesociety.org, or visit https://verdevalleyhumanesociety.org/foster/

Funding for a Spay/Neuter and Medical Clinic /Seeking Veterinarian

Description

LOOKING FOR A VETERINARIAN AND FUNDING FOR ANIMAL WELFARE SPAY/NEUTER MEDICAL CLINIC IN NORTHERN ARIZONA (VERDE VALLEY)

Giving of ourselves: our time, love and compassion to the animals in need is what is most important to us at Red Rose Inspiration For Animals as we have been providing free services to felines and canines in this community for over 10 years now. However, we are limited to the amount of animals we are able to service?

We have been instrumental in the Verde Valley. Focused heavily in Camp Verde, Rimrock, Cottonwood and Cornville.

We are unique as 501c3 in animal welfare as we don’t have a facility and our focus is not taking in animals and adopting them out. Although we have done it in the past and on occasion we will still do it but our specialty is providing se
rvices in animal welfare.

With all the animal organizations in the Verde Valley we try to be particular and service the community in which we live on a different level as it wouldn’t do the animals any good if we all did the same thing. Fortunately, the one common goal we all have is to spay and neuter and make a difference in the over pet population as that is the most important goal for all of us universally. That is what we at Red Rose believe makes the biggest impact within our community.

TNR (Trap Neuter Return for Feral Cats) is a service we have been providing regularly since 2012. We have compassionate, experienced volunteers who set the traps and transport these kittens/cats to the vet and then return and release them back to their environment. Young kittens caught early enough are vaccinated, treated medically, altered and adopted out an experience that is life changing obviously for the better.

At Red Rose we assist homeless animals with emergency medical care. All animals including feral cats involved with Red Rose are treated for any medical conditions before being released. When pet owners on a
fixed income find themselves experiencing an emergency situation with their companion animal they are not always prepared to even cover the cost of an exam let alone medication and testing. With our help many pet owners have mentioned “they were able to keep their pet instead of having to give them up due to the cost and treatment.”

Red Rose has assisted hundreds of pet owners (especially seniors) in dire need so that they don’t further delay the animal having to suffer due to financial challenges.

We also assist with free spay and neuter services of felines and canines. Not only assisting pet owners who can’t afford the low cost spay neuter clinics in our community but also homeless animals that are either trapped or found as strays by kind compassionate people that are struggling financially and can’t take on the necessary veterinarian cost. Before moving any animal into the next phase we always encourage individuals to spay and neuter and offer financial assistance when they are in need. Spaying and neutering litters of kittens and puppies and the adult dogs that contributed to their existence whenever possible.

Red Rose has reached an obstacle in animal welfare as we currently NEED more working veterinarian partners or our own veterinarian as we are having to send some animals needing services to Flagstaff and Prescott. We feel if we had our own veterinarian and clinic we could do more.

We need more veterinarians willing to provide rescue pricing as we have pet owners wanting and desperately needing the services for their pets, not to mention the homeless animals.

The unfortunate part is many of the veterinarians in the Verde Valley are not willing to provide discounted services and that is a real obstacle for us because pet owners that are financially challenged needing emergency services have practically nowhere to turn if we don't have veterinarians willing to assist us. Many of the people we often assist don’t have credit cards and many try to apply for Care Credit at the veterinarian’s office only to be denied. Then what? Their animal is not serviced and is left to suffer. This has and continues to happen quite often.

Another problem is many veterinarians will not provide services to feral felines so they will not assist us with our TNR program either. We have had to cut back drastically in the last 24 months on the services because of this situation. You are probably wondering have we reached out to all the additional veterinarians in the area……the answer is yes and multiple times, with no luck. Thankfully the Village Vet Clinic in the Village of Oak Creek and Danza Del Sol has been helping us out but our need is greater than the amount of animals they can possibly see. .

Animals left to continue to reproduce often wind up abused, injured, or neglected as shelters across the country are filled with animals that are euthanized daily due to over pet population as we simply can’t adopt our way out of this problem.

Perhaps we will be fortunate to find a generous, retired, veterinarian willing to volunteer their time to helping our mission or we will be fortunate to open a clinic in the future. We encourage our supporters to help us find a veterinarian either a volunteer or a new professional to the area or one that is contracted.

When you support Red Rose 100% of the proceeds from our fundraising efforts from the Red Rose Thriftique, Red Rose Barkin Basement and our Red Rose Art Shows go to the overall mission of Red Rose Inspiration For Animals. 100% of a monetary donor’s donation goes directly to assisting the animals. No administrative cost or salaries as we are a small, volunteer based organization making a huge difference in the lives of animals throughout the Verde Valley.

On our 990 throughout the years we have a 99.98 percent rating for public support which we are quite proud of, as with us it’s all about servicing the animals. We are asking for anyone passionate about our mission to help us continue the work we do. We are most grateful for all we have accomplished through the years and continue to accomplish. Thank you for sharing and supporting us.
