The (new) Board of Directors is currently recruiting for 2 positions and we need your help!
- Treasurer. Our wonderful and long-serving Treasurer needs a break, so we are urgently searching for someone to take her place. She has been doing this job wonderfully for many, many years and we hate to see her go, but everyone needs a break at some point. Ideally this person would be familiar with 501(c)3 Non-Profit accounting and be bonded. If you are interested, please contact any member of the Board of Directors!
- Legal Representation. Again, the person filling this role has been doing it for many, many years and is ready to let someone else take over. Again, the ideal person would be licensed to practice law in more than one state, and be familiar with 501(c)3 and/or animal rescue organizations, but we’re always open to suggestions! Please contact the Board if you are interested or have any friends or relatives who might be interested.
This Neardie (perhaps?) broke my heart when I heard about him. He’s in a
very crowded shelter with a very limited time left..at least they put him on Petfinders. He’s in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Is there any help available for him?
Please contact Monica (twaymcoxnet) for more information about this pet. As per the shelter:
This guy is very scared at the shelter. He was picked up as a stray and is looking for his onwer to rescue him.
NOTE: We can NOT return long-distance phone calls and we can NOT ship or hold animals (sorry). Due to lack of space, animals may not have as long as we would like to get adopted. If you would like more information, please call the shelter between 1 and 5 pm (M-F) or Noon to 4 pm on Saturday to make sure the animal is still available. Please have the animal’s ID # available when you call. Adoption fees and directions to the shelter can be found on our petfinder website (see SOLAS link). The Shelter is located at 2821 S. 15th St., Council Bluffs, IA. 51503
I am not sure where we might post this on our new site, Thanks to David, however see if you would like to include this link. Best regards, Sheila
Hope you enjoy, Sheila
Let us all remember the lives we have saved — both dogs and the people who have adopted those dogs — over the years. Every rescue is 2 lives saved, and isn’t that what this season is all about?
Kelly and Bailey in Atlanta, Georgia
Kelly and Bailey
Need a Home
Kelly and Bailey were loved and well cared for by their owner, whose life was cut short by a car accident some months ago. Following her death, the dogs lived alone for FIVE TO SIX months and only once a day a relative would come over, feed them McDonald’s food and let them out. They survived in this kind of isolation until BONE was able to find them a loving foster home where they have gratefully been since the day before Thanksgiving.
They are supersweet, loving dogs-for many the fact that they are 9 years old is a deterrent But they have so much to offer. Both are neutered, healthy males and are great with their foster Mom’s own dogs.
Bailey is some kind of shaggy mix, and is just 40 pounds–he might be part Old English Sheepdog, Bearded Collie or other shaggy breed like Wheaten –we just don’t know for sure.
Kelly appears to be a shetland sheepdog and rough collie mix and just 45 pounds.
Because these two have survived together we felt that we owed it to them to try to find them a loving home as together as they have already lost all that was familiar and secure to them.
If you have a home, a heart and a love of herding dogs, please fill out a BONE application and email Laurie at: nclswindstreamnet (nclswindstreamnet)
We need content. And pictures of Neardies. And all sorts of stuff.
