Recently, a kitten was dumped at a local store....scared, skinny and ill, she was stuffed in a too-small carrier and left overnight on one of the coldest nights of the season. Blue Moon rushed her to the vet. Although we and the local vets worked diligently for over a week, we were forced to say good-bye to this sweet little tabby. Her illnesses were just too strong to overcome. While she died without a name, she didn't die alone. Two of the Blue Moon founders were at her side, comforting her as she found peace. What we can't understand is how someone could dispose of a cat in such a manner. Blue Moon exists to help people in financial distress with vet bills. If the owners couldn't afford the vet treatment, the Blue Moon would have assisted to ensure that this kitten would haven't had to suffer.
THE ELDON CITY POUND IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO PLACE WONDERFUL CATS, KITTENS AND DOGS. PLEASE CALL FRAN AT 573-392-2291, X 229 FOR MORE INFO ON ADOPTING AND SAVING A LIFE!
The 10th annual GOLF BENEFIT AND SILENT AUCTION for the BLUE MOON was on Wednesday, September 11, at Osage National Golf Course. Another successful event was celebrated because of our generous benefactors and supporters.
UPDATE ON OUR CHIWEENIE PUPS- CARSON, PRETTY BOY AND SCOOTCH....
Born with missing/malformed front legs due to irresponsible breeding, the boys are doing great. Pretty Boy is now a therapy dog in Michigan with a wonderful veterinarian. The other two remain in our care as permanent residents. Both boys have received their carts, and are beginning therapy to help them get used to "walking" as a regular dog would. If you'd like to donate to defray the expense of the carts, please send your tax-deductible check to Blue Moon Sanctuary, PO Box 294, Linn Creek, MO 65052.<
Blue Moon Sanctuary is celebrating its 14th year of service to animals in the Lake area. Founded by five women, the organization exists to provide forever homes for approximately 85 special needs animals. Most of the animals are either physically or emotionally challenged due to abuse or neglect by humans. With these ladies in their private homes, the animals live in a warm and nurturing environment with their special needs addressed. No animal in the care of the Blue Moon is caged.
As important, the organization provides spay and neuter assistance, as well as assists with medical bills for people who can't afford emergency care for their pets. Overpopulation is a huge issue at the Lake, and the group is often inundated with calls about animals being dumped. Sometimes, the person finding the animal will be able to keep it, but will need financial assistance for vet visits and spay/neuter. Most of the money raised by Blue Moon goes directly back to the community in the form of public assistance. The organization is a 501(c)3 organization, and virtually all of the money raised goes directly to help the animals at the Lake.
Countless animals are being dumped with their newborn litters. All the local shelters are beyond capacity, and there's no safe place for these many unwanted litters. Please spay and neuter your pet before more litters are born!.
There is NO excuse for this type of behavior! If you can't afford the fee, Blue Moon and other organizations will assist in paying the spay/neuter costs for your pets.
Mary Ann Golden, our certified wildlife rehabber, has received lots of phone calls for assistance with wild animals. She's had a wide variety of animals, including fox, coyotes, song birds, oppossums and raccoons over the years. She has a special touch with these delicate creatures and has great success in helping them succeed in the wild. No wild animal is ever kept as a pet. If you encounter an injured or seemingly abandoned wild animal, please call Mary Ann for assistance. They require special handling and diets, and the animal's life depends on you making the right call - please don't try to take care of them yourselves.
Our Thrift Shop is located at 167 E. Hwy 54, in Camdenton, across the street from McDonald's. If you would like to volunteer your time, we need the help. We are also accepting donations and would appreciate anything you may have.
We are a small group of women who have a lifetime of caring for and loving all creatures on our planet. In October of 1999, our deep concern inspired us to form Blue Moon Sanctuary, Inc., a 501(c)3, not-for-profit corporation.
We are small, but we are firmly committed to helping homeless, abused or abandoned dogs and cats through contributions and your donated efforts. Permanent homes will be found with pre-approved, caring individuals in return for a modest donation to our organization. Dogs and cats that are not now, or may never be deemed adoptable,will be provided a loving, permanent home here at our Sanctuary.
Our continued efforts are only possible with contributions from concerned, supportive individuals. WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
We invite ALL interested, caring individuals to inspect our sanctuary (by appointment) or visit with us and learn more about our future plans. We are ALL volunteers and ALL FUNDS donated will be used for the animals.
