Wet Nose is a registered right to life organization, or in other words they are a pro-life shelter. All animals remain in their care until they find their forever homes. Wet Nose staff work hard to rehabilitate all abandoned, neglected and abused animals that come through their doors.
Time is spent with all the animals to help them overcome any problems that may have been developed from abuse. Many animals have been hurt badly by their previous experiences and Wet Nose works hard to show them a new way of life where they will be unconditionally loved and cared for.
On average they have about 80 adoptions a month, which is fabulous! However they still have around 320 dogs and 60 cats that dream of one day finding a loving family to take them home!
While the cats, dogs and even horses patiently a wait being reunited with their families or wait for a new family to take them home, they are well cared for by the Wet Nose staff. The onsite vets take care of any disease or injuries in the clinic, while kennel hands do everything from giving them hearty meals to cuddling with them. Volunteers come on a regular basis to take the dogs for long walks around the grounds as well.
Wet Nose was founded in 1999 by Tracy Forte. Tracy started out with a dream to ensure that healthy animals are given a second chance in life and to make sure they receive all the love and care they need until they find their happily ever after. They have re homed and reunited thousands of animals with families since then, some as far away as Australia and the United Kingdom!

Bob Tarte had his first encounter with a cat when he was two and a half years old. He should have learned his lesson then, from Fluffy. But as he says, "I listened to my heart instead, and that always leads to trouble." So Tarte is back to regale readers with more hilarious pet stories in his third and funniest book so far, Kitty Cornered.
In "Kitty Cornered," he illustrates how six cats add chaos, humour, and love to his wife Linda's already hectic household. There's Moobie - sweet, affectionate, and Zen-like in her relationships with the other animals; fiery Agnes, always trying to defend her upstairs territory and her rightful place curled up on Bob's lap; Jeckyll-and-Hyde Lucy, who will sweetly purr as she bites, and almost invariably overshoots the litter box; Frannie, who shows up as a stray at the Tarte house and seems to have a mysterious, painful past which makes her trust hard to earn; Maynard, a needy, clinging cat loudly demanding constant attention; and Tina, spastic, fearless, and destroyer of knick-knacks, bathroom wallpaper, and appliances.
Tarte describes the quirky behaviour of any animal right down to a tee! He captures the unique personality of each with hilarious accounts of their antics and squabbles with one another for the title of Top Cat. Believe me, there will be many times that you have to wipe tears of laughter away.
With the winning humor and uncanny ability to capture the soul of the animal world, Tarte shows us that life with animals gives us a way out of our narrow human perspective to glimpse something larger, more enduring, and more grounded in the simplicities of love—and catnip.
Kitty Cornered will be a delight for every person who has ever been owned by a cat. Cat lovers, cat haters, animal enthusiasts, pet rescuers (as well as students of human behavior and psychology) will all find this book a laugh-out-loud read.

The Lucky Lucy Foundation is a Pro-life, Non-Profit Organization, which is not just a shelter, but also engages itself with people and animals in townships. Their vision is to build a society of non-violence, respect and empathy.
"Not confiscating and euthanizing but educating and sterilizing" is their motto. The main focus of LLF is to sterilize animals to prevent overpopulation, rather than eliminate the unwanted animals. They want to stop the torture of animals by developing empathy in the people. They motivate people from townships to bring their pets in for sterilization. As a reward, the Fondation gives them clothes and food for themselves and their animals. LLF shows the people how to treat animals with respect. They also teach the importance of sterilization, de-worming, vaccinations and clean water.
Additionally, the Organisation wants to improve the education and lifestyle of the people living in townships by teaching them life skills, such as vegetable gardening and woodwork. These skills allow the people to create employment and therefore instill responsibility for them to take care of themselves, their families and their animals.
The Lucky Lucy Foundation also is a shelter and there are many dogs and cats waiting for a warm, lovely home. Thez have been rescued from severe neglect , they had no hope left . Show them how wonderful life can be, be there miracle!These creatures are "no hope left" animals; the ones with no chances left, that have no hope for the future and who need a miracle.
If you have the patience and enthusiasm to keep up with a bundle of energy, then a cute, playful kitten is perfect for you. Their big, curious eyes will melt your heart, and they will never resist a cuddle.
If you want a wise and relaxed kitty, then an older cat would be best. Older cats are usually already litter trained and have been neutered. Senior cats are an excellent choice for senior humans, and will not get into mischief when working persons are away from the home. They will be very grateful and will, in return, become an excellent friend that will share your laughter, your tears, and their heart.
