31 Mar
Barchiel Map copy
We are happy to inform you that Barchiel has found a rescue that will find him a happy forever home. Sioux Empire Pit Rescue is an all volunteer 501C3 rescue group in Sioux Falls South Dakota. Sioux Empire’s mission is to promote responsible Pit Bull ownership, provide breed education, combat pet overpopulation, and find qualified homes for sound Pit Bull dogs in South Dakota.
Barchiel will be traveling from Edinburg, Texas all the way up to Sioux, South Dakota. This little guy is moving up state! Joy Benson has directed the transport operation for Barchiel. He will travel by car. Eight people are involved in a seven-state transport for him.
We are still asking for your help to cover the costs. So far, the online fundraiser has lost momentum and we are asking for your help to make this happen.  Find it in your hearts to give a little for dear Barchiel. This has been a long journey towards a happy ending for our now happy little friend!
So far, you have helped raise $696 for Barchiel. We still need $1,500 to cover all the miles he has to travel and medical expenses. Please give kindly. He still has a long way to go to a happy ending.

Giving Rescues a voice! Guest Blogging Spot for Registered Animal Rescues!

The following is a guest blog posting from a registered rescue in the state of Missouri. They are in great need of a van in order to transport animals to adoption clinics. Due to the lack of a proper transportation vehicle, many of the adoptable dogs stay behind at the shelter and do not get a chance at adoption until the next clinic. Please take a moment to read and get to know the work of Pawsibilities are Endless. Please remember, small donations add up in a tremendous way. Even if you can’t help financially, you can lend a hand by sharing ~HAND4PAWS

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ADDING HAND4PAWS LINK TO YOUR NEWSLETTER! IT IS AN HONOR FOR US TO BE INCLUDED! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO!

Thank you’s and news

-This awesome BLOG is featuring our need for a van or mini van for our rescue. Thanks to Hands4Paws!

-Please remember it is mosquito season and it only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to infect your dog with heartworms. Please be diligent and use a heartworm preventative. I was hanging out the back yard with Linda and they were swarming the poor baby.

-Colorado Animal Rescue Express: C.A.R.E. was one of Pawsibilities’ very first supporters. For the first 6 months or so Pawsibilities was active we were almost entirely on our own. We remember sending an email out, not even asking for help but because we were SO excited that Angel, a white pit bull was getting adopted from the Wind- sor, Mo pound. Lisa from C.A.R.E. offered to pay for her vetting; we were ecstatic. At that time Pawsibilities was the only group helping the Windsor Pound and we were very grateful to have someone else step in. From that point on Colorado Animal Rescue Express and their Jake’s Fund have helped numerous Windsor Pound dogs and Pawsibilities Are Endless dogs, even assisting us with many of our high cost medical supply orders. However, this last one “took the cake.”

We had contacted Lisa at Colorado Animal Rescue Express letting her know Pawsibilities would be donating many of our 5 ways to the Windsor Pound and asking her if Jake’s Fund would be able to help us with another purchase of these extremely vital vaccines; they not only offered to pay for an entire 25 count box for us, but also offered to buy a box for the Windsor Pound through our order. Wow! We placed the order, adding on some additional items the rescue needed- to save on shipping- knowing Colorado Animal Rescue Express would reimburse us for the 5way vaccines and Pawsibilities Are Endless would pay for the additional supplies.

When we placed the order and we submitted the receipt to Lisa, Colorado Animal Rescue Express sent us a check for the entire, almost $300 purchase! This included enough frontline to last our entire rescue the whole summer! (usually a $75 per month cost for us) we couldn’t believe it; that was so unexpected and we are very grateful! we immediately got on Facebook and asked everyone to go to Caretransport.org to thank Lisa, Linda and C.A.R.E.’s Jake’s Fund for their support of our rescue efforts. If you support Pawsibilities Are Endless, please do the same. This group deserves our gratitude. Thank you, C.A.R.E!

-Our weekday adoption events will be on June: 8th and 13th from 3-7pm and the 15th from 5-7pm at the Petco in Blue Springs, MO.

-Pawsibilities Are Endless accept paypal donations at: Pawsibilities@ymail.com. Thank you Marisa Julien for your paypal donation in May.

-Pawsibilities Are Endless was turned down for a much needed grant we had applied for so this chip in is more important to us now than it has ever been, please help share this link: http://bit.ly/HUAzaX

-Thank you, Kim Henderson from 1st Community bank in Windsor for donating aluminum cans to help us raise funds!

-Thank you, Lisa D for donating items from our Amazon.com wish list:

The same day we set up this link, our adoption coordinator was book- ing a room with Choice Hotels and a message popped up showing the amount that would come to the rescue. We have high hopes for this program.

Hand4Paws,
Thank you for offering to help our rescue with our fundraising and van needs.
Pawsibilities Are Endless is a small rescue in rural, Missouri; we’re 2 hours from Kansas City. We originally established the rescue to help specifically the Windsor, Missouri pound, but have now expanded to assist the Clinton and Warrensburg, Mo shelters and individuals as well, although we are still small. At this time we assist 50-100 dogs per year maximum.
We use several different vets depending on our dog’s needs, all are 45 minutes to an hour and a half away, however, our two vehicles used for transporting are a truck and a compact car, so the maximum amount of dogs we can transport at one given time is 4 and that’s if we have small dogs (we mostly help medium to large dogs) and if there isn’t a lot of equipment we need to transport. (kennels, tables, chairs for pet fairs, etc)
An example of the problems we run into just happened yesterday; I had 4 large dogs to take to the vet but there isn’t enough room in the vehicle for all of them, so I’ll be making 2-3 trips to get them all vetted, all 45 minutes away, an hour and a half round trip; 3 of the dogs now can’t go to the vet until next week.
Another example is, when we pulled 3 dogs from the Warrensburg shelter I didn’t have enough room in my vehicle for all of them so had to make 2 separate trips on 2 separate days, also a 45 minute one way trip, an hour and a half round trip.
The added travel time of course costs us financially, but also takes me away from other important rescue duties; imagine what I could get done with those extra days.
Because of our location, we travel 2-3 times per month, 3 hours round trip to Blue Springs for pet fairs at the Petco in the car or truck, leaving behind adoptable dogs just because we can’t fit them in the vehicle.
We are 501c3 and would love to have a cargo style van, suv or minivan donated to the rescue so we could take more dogs on each trip, saving in gas for vet runs and getting more adoptable dogs to pet fairs.

The second thing we are trying to do is pay off our rescue expenses. Right now we are doing fundraisers to try to come up with $2100, most of which was spent on medical expenses. We’ve spent $1200 in the past month and a half at one vet’s office for 3 different dogs.
