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 15th 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.
We have made the difficult decision to close our thrift store on Friday, March 15. Due to declining revenues and increasing rent, the thrift store is not contributing to the Sanctuary. Please stop by - great sales, and everything, including the fixtures, are for sale! Our Thrift Shop is located at 167 E. Hwy 54, in Camdenton, across the street from McDonald's. We are also still accepting household donations (no clothing, please) and would appreciate anything you may have. We will have periodic garage sales to raise funds for the Sanctuary.
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.
