Friday's Furry Friends 1-21-2022

I arrived at Fairmount Park a little before 8:30am. There were four pets there with their companions. I visited with each of them and distributed needed supplies. Two of the dogs I was hoping to visit were not there. Their companion told me they had gotten a room last night and would be checking out around noon. I said I would drive out there if I had time. I would not have but I decided to forgo the Eastside in order to make it work. Often times, I drive out to the Eastside without having an opportunity to visit with pets so I chose a sure thing. When I was done at the motel, I went home to get changed in order to meet a couple of volunteer/friends for an outside lunch. Before meeting them, I stopped at Foster Army Animal Rescue to pick up the pet jackets their sewing club made for us. The sun was shining, the wind was not blowing and the day turned out to be a good one! Nestle Pure Life waters, hand warmers, socks, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, peanut packs and beef sticks with cheese packs, chicken jerky treats, wet kitten food, cat toys, cat treats, Inaba Churus for cats, small bag of dog food, 2–20-pound bags of dog food from the Star Milling Company, Kong small and regular size squeaky tennis ball, handmade fleece pet jackets, kabob chew sticks, collar, leash, collapsible pet bowls, led collar lights, wet dog food and bully sticks were shared.

Before I was able to 'hit the streets' this morning, I had to go to the post office to put in a claim for a package they lost. When I was done there, I headed out to the Motel6 in Jurupa Valley. I was unable to reach the person who asked me to bring supplies so I drove to another location to visit their pets and bring supplies to them. When we were done, I called the person I missed earlier and she picked up the phone so I went to meet with her and two of her pets. I visited with the two she brought out and left supplies for all four of the pets. It was pretty windy so I decided not to go anywhere else as it always causes my allergies to flare up, if I am out in it for long periods of time. We are not expecting more of the same until Saturday so I am hoping for a calmer day tomorrow. Nestle Pure Life waters, ARCO gift cards, hand warmers, socks, chicken jerky treats, wet cat food, cat toys, cat treats, Inaba Churus for cats, Inaba Churus for dogs, 2–20-pound bags of dog food from the Star Milling Company, Kong squeaky tennis ball, handmade fleece pet jackets, wet dog food and bully sticks were shared.

#1601 and #1602 Get 'The Works' 1-19-2022

Our spay and neuter surgeries were done at Van Buren Animal Hospital today, due to Riverside Animal Services closing their clinic to us for two weeks. We want to thank Van Buren for accommodating us last week as well. We had two pets scheduled and both were cats. One male and one female. We previously had both vaccinated and microchipped so they would just need the surgery but one had a bad ear mite infestation and required an ear flush and meds too. We are thankful that over the past two weeks four pets were able to get 'the works', even though we lost access to our normal facility. "One by one we get them done, because the only way to combat pet overpopulation and euthanasia in our shelters is to spay and neuter."

Tuesday's Treasures 1-18-2022

I am not sure where everyone was staying warm and dry this morning but it was not in most of the places I was looking. I started out by a river bottom outlet in an industrial area of Jurupa Valley. I was looking for a gentleman who said he needed his dog spayed but he was not around and has no phone for me to try and reach him. I did visit with two dogs that were there and left a few supplies with their companion. I did quite a bit of driving after that but none of it was productive. I drove through Fairmount Park, the parking lot of the downtown Salvation Army, Reid Park, a location in Colton and then over to Massachusetts on the Eastside. I finally decided to stop looking at headed over to the clinic where I was scheduled to meet someone with her cat. That cat is one of two being spayed/neutered tomorrow. The other cat already got micro chipped and vaccinated last week but we needed to take care of this one. I am glad we did, because she had a bad case of ear mites which we were able to begin treating immediately. They said it is best to flush her ears when she is under anesthesia so I called Van Buren Animal Hospital. I asked if they could do that tomorrow when they spay her and they said yes. The cat got everything she needed today and we will complete 'the works' tomorrow. We are set to return to Riverside Animal Services Spay/Neuter Clinic on the 26th and hope to start filling all six of the appointments we are allotted each week. Nestle Pure Life waters, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, protein bars and beef sticks with cheese, chicken jerky treats and kabob chew sticks were shared.

Monday On The Move 1-17-2022

The rain literally put a 'damper' on my day but I was still able to meet up with five pets and their companions. I did not have to go to check for a microchip on a dog that was found yesterday, because her companion got her back last night. Instead, I went straight to Massachusetts on the Eastside and parked in front of the pallet houses. I visited with and distributed supplies for two dogs staying there as well as one that got a ride to that location. When I left, I drove straight to Hunter Park where I visited with two more and distributed supplies. The rain was not coming down hard but it was raining on and off all morning. It kept me from being able to make contact with more people and pets as well as having to postpone an outdoor lunch with friends. Hoping the sunshine and somewhat warmer temperatures return tomorrow! Nestle Pure Life waters, socks, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, protein bars and beef sticks with cheese, hand warmers, disinfectant wipes, body wipes, handmade pet jackets, handmade doggie waste pouch with leash clip, chicken jerky treats, small bags of dog food, wet cat food, plush squeaky dog toys, puppy pads and kabob chew sticks were shared.

Sunday On The Streets 1-16-2022

My first stop of the day was at our storage units. I made plans to meet someone who made dog jackets for us again as well as pick up pet food, snack foods and waters. When I left that location, I drove over to Shamel Park where I normally meet with 'Cali' and her companion but they were not there. When I called, I was told they were put in a motel across town for a few days, I did not have time to drive out to where they were so I went to one of the river bottom outlets in order to meet someone who needed cat food. She normally brings her cat up on a leashed harness but today she had a puppy with her. We discussed providing him with needed services and I gave her supplies. My next stop was with 'Kawasaki' over by Colorado and Van Buren. She was just getting up and after she walked around for a bit, she was ready for a visit. Before heading home, I ran a personal errand and picked up a few items for my next baking session. Nestle Pure Life waters, socks, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, protein bars and beef sticks with cheese, hand warmers, handmade pet jacket, pet sweater, chicken jerky treats, 17-pound bag of cat food from the Star Milling Company, wet cat food, plush squeaky dog toys, stainless steel pet dish, bacon flavored dental sticks and bully sticks were shared.

I was asked to meet a couple of people and their pets at one of the river bottom outlets at an industrial area in Jurupa Valley. One of the people just lost everything when his camper caught fire. This is the second one over the past few weeks. The difference is this gentleman did not know how it started. Just hoping nobody did it intentionally. I spent quite a bit of time at this location so we could try on collars, pet sweaters and pet jackets in addition to making sure they were able to get whatever needed supplies I had in my vehicle. My second stop was at another river bottom outlet. This one is near Crestmore and the Mission Avenue bridge. I was called earlier in the week for dog food but this was the first day I was able to make it over there. In addition to distributing supplies, I was able to visit with three of the six dogs that live in the encampments there. My final stop was at our PO Box, before heading back home. Nestle Pure Life waters, socks, beanies, knit gloves, toilet tissue, disinfectant wipes, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, protein bars and beef sticks with cheese, hand warmers, led collar lights, Vetericyn wound care spray, pet jacket, pet sweaters, small and medium dog collars, small and medium dog leashes, plush squeaky pet toys, small Kong squealy tennis ball, chicken jerky treats, individual bags of dog treats, 3-20 pound bags of dog food from the Star Milling Company, wet dog food, large stainless steel pet dish, kabob chew sticks and bully sticks were shared.

I was contacted by someone who wanted to meet with me so I could discuss a dog he 'rescued' from an abusive situation. I told him that the first thing I wanted to do was check for a microchip and then see if he appeared healthy enough for 'the works'. I suggested meeting at Fairmount Park, being that I was going there anyway. He said that would be great. I waited for half an hour and he never showed nor did he answer his phone. It was not a wasted trip though. I visited with four dogs while I was there and distributed needed supplies, before heading over to Massachusetts on the Eastside. I noticed a little dog running around on Hulen Place so I put my window down and began talking to him. He had a tag on his collar so I was hoping to get a closer look. Thankfully, his companions were in a vehicle parked close to where he was. I explained that I thought he was a stray and then we began talking. I gave them a leash and a few other items as well as discuss a date I would be able to get the dog neutered. From there I drover over to Hunter Park. The person I was looking for seemed to still be sleeping so I drove a couple of blocks to where I knew I would find 'Solo' and his companion. I headed to our PO Box and then home after that, because I wanted to get ready to meet some people for an outdoor lunch. Two of the women volunteer when covid allows and the third works behind the scenes on our Grants. One of them said she might have been exposed to covid at work and would not be able to make it and then I eventually had to cancel anyway, due to strong winds. We will try again next Friday. The temperature was great for eating outdoors but the wind was not. I am hoping both are good next week. Nestle Pure Life waters, socks, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, protein bars and beef sticks with cheese, hand warmers, disinfectant wipes, pet bed, small leash, led collar lights, wet dog food, small bag of dog food, 20-pound bag of dog food from the Star Milling Company, chicken jerky treats for dogs, kabob chew sticks, handmade doggie waste pouches with leash clip, pet jacket, handmade pet jacket and plush squeaky pet toys were shared.

Not all of my news today is good but I will start with sharing what was. I checked on 'Puffco' our #1600 and he is doing well. I was able to distribute needed supplies to pets at the motel. A cat that is getting neutered on Wednesday made his appointment today for micro chip and vaccinations and I received two lovely messages and photos from people who adopted pets that once belonged to homeless people needing help. The disappointing news was that 'Kawasaki' and her companion never made it to the motel for their long-awaited break from the elements. The people with the vehicle and ID who were supposed to drive and stay with them wound up leaving town. I was so sad to learn that the motel arrangements did not work out. I hope something changes especially if we get hit with the rain and cold again. I will keep that idea in my thoughts…Nestle Pure Life waters, snack bags with cracker packs, cookie packs, protein bars and beef sticks with cheese, hand warmers, disinfectant wipes, small inflatable e-collar, chicken jerky treats for dogs, Inaba Churus for cats, Inaba Churus for dogs, kabob chew sticks, bully sticks, hand made doggie waste pouches with leash clip, cat toy and pet jackets were shared.

As far as spaying and neutering is concerned, we were limited to two pets this week and next week, due to our not being able to keep our usual appointments with Riverside County Animal Services. Van Buren Animal Hospital was kind enough to help us out so we did not have to go two entire weeks with no pets getting done. One of the dog's scheduled for today showed up but the other did not. This is the second time they have not shown so I was upset about wasting the appointment. I later found out that the dog had actually attacked someone which is why he was not coming and the companion thought she texted me yesterday. She did not but there was nothing I could do about it. Jus thankful for the dog that received 'the works' yesterday so we still got in our two. When I left Van Buren Animal Hospital, I went home to give my dogs a potty break and then went back out, I had an appointment for an oil change and I needed to ship a couple of packages. I did not have any people snacks or waters with me but I did drive out to the motel to meet the dog that was released from Animal Services yesterday. Her companion needed supplies and although I did not have everything he asked for I did have most of the items. I also visited with another kitty while I was there and gave his companion supplies too. By the time we were done, it was time for me to get back home.

I just found out that due to Covid Riverside County Animal Services is postponing all outside spay and neuter surgeries until January 26th. Now I am scrambling to take care of the people I have scheduled this week and next. We already lost a surgery day in November, two more in December and now two in January. I understand the why but it really makes things difficult when I amount there trying to schedule. I am just grateful that I happened to contact them today and found out before we went down there again………... I only visited with four pets this morning but it was still a busy day. It started with a phone call from the woman whose camper caught on fire and exploded a couple of weeks ago. She recently got out of the hospital and finally got reunited with her dog. We discussed different places she might be able to get help. I contacted someone from City Net and asked her to get in touch with the woman to see what her options might be. I am waiting to hear back….Yesterday, I was contacted by someone staying in the pallet houses with her two dogs. One of them is having stomach issues and because the food she is feeding them is something I feel is horrible for the pets, I offered to bring her something different. She was also going to be calling Pets Of The Homeless as well. I arrived at the time we agreed upon but she was not outside and her phone went straight to voicemail. I waited a few minutes and then continued on to another location on the Eastside where I visited with 'Solo'. I went to Hunter Park next but nobody was there with pets so I drove out to Reid Park where I visited with 'Rex'. When I was done there, I went a few blocks to a street in Colton where I visited with 'Monster' and 'Nico'. I did go back to the Eastside and checked Massachusetts Avenue again but nobody was there. I ran a couple of personal errands and when I got home, I received a call from a homeless gentleman whose dog was impounded. After speaking to him and having someone from Animal Services call me, arrangements were made for Taking It To The Streets with Lori and Shira to cover the dog's spay, chip, license, vaccinations, meds and flea tick treatment. A program they have took care of the rest. When the dog is released, we will cover a two-night stay at the motel. Nestle Pure Life waters, socks, hand warmers, snack bags with cookie packs, cracker packs and beef & cheese sticks, individual bags of dog treats, Inaba Churus for dogs, chicken jerky treats, squeaky Kong tennis ball, dog toys, kabob chew sticks and bully sticks were shared.

First stop of the day was at our storage units. I needed to pick up pet food and waters as well as meet Ilene Stein. She met Cindy Cox and then delivered a donation from her as well as one from herself. (Thank You Ilene and Cindy!). When I left storage, I drove to Shamel Park to visit with 'Cali'. Next stop was on VanBuren and Colorado to visit with 'Kawasaki'. I am thankful that after I left, a phone call came in from her companion. Some friends living in their car have an ID and are willing to all share a room so my favorite senior dog is finally going to get out of the elements for a couple of nights, thanks to a donor who offered to pay for the room. It has been a few years so this is a tremendous gift.

I drove through Fairmount Park hoping to see some of the people with pets that did not show up yesterday but I had no luck. I called someone at one of the river bottom outlets to see if any of the dogs at that location needed food or supplies but her phone went straight to voicemail. I continued driving to another river bottom outlet at an industrial center in Jurupa Valley. I wanted to know if anyone had heard from the woman whose trailer caught on fire and blew up but nobody had. I was able to visit with a couple of pets there, before heading out to the Jurupa Valley Motel6. On my way there, I made a stop to visit with one of my favorite gentle giants. When I was done there, I went to the motel. While I was visiting a companion and her two dogs, I received a phone call. It was from the woman I was inquiring about earlier. She was released from the hospital but had nowhere to go and it doesn't look like anyone helped set up services for her, even though she also suffers from other medical conditions. She was at her daughter's but could only stay a few days. She was worried about where she would go and where the dog was. I explained that I was unable to locate her friend that was supposed to be caring for 'Missy'. I am hoping she finds her sooner than later and can get some type of emergency housing. She lost what little she had, in that fire. I will do my best to stay in touch with her. Next week, I will try reaching out to a few of the people I know from City Net and see if there is anything I can do to help. After leaving the motel, I ran a couple of errands and headed home. Nestle Pure Life waters, socks, hand warmers, snack bags with cookie packs, cracker packs and beef & cheese sticks, LED pet collar light, individual bags of dog treats, chicken jerky treats, small bag of dog food, kabob chew sticks and bully sticks were shared.

I made my usual stop at Fairmount Park this morning. Lucy the oatmeal lady was back and there were a few people there with pets. I visited with and distributed supplies to the dogs that were there, made arrangements to get someone's cats spayed and gave someone their one-year RCAS license tag. I was also supposed to meet someone with a puppy that is scheduled for 'the works' on Wednesday but they did not show so I headed over to Massachusetts on the Eastside. On my way, I received a text that the previous people were running late and they agreed to meet me on Massachusetts Avenue. When I was driving up Kansas Avenue, I saw 'Kristen' and her companion walking so I pulled over for them before continuing on to my final stop. The puppy showed up and received many needed supplies. We confirmed the plans for his appointment on Wednesday and I left. I drove to get fuel and stop at our PO Box, before heading home. I had an outdoor lunch date with my Rabbi so I went to meet her, about an hour later. The sun was shining and the day was a good one.

I had a vision center appointment at Kaiser this morning so the rest of today's plans had to revolve around that. When I was leaving there an email came in with some potentially exciting news. I made a blue tooth phone call and discussed the details of that email and when I arrived home, I sent in some information that I was asked to provide. If things work out, I will share what that email was about. I may share either way but for now I will wait and see what happens. When I left the house for a second time, I headed over to the Department of Animal Services to pick up someone's license tag and paperwork from yesterday's neuter appointments. The next stop was supposed to be at the clinic to get five previously spayed and neutered cats updated on their vaccinations as well as get a kitten his second set of vaccinations and strongid. Apparently, the winds were bad in the river bottom and the five cats went into hiding. We were able to get the youngest kitten what he needed but that was it. I left there, stopped to pick up a package at our PO Box and pay the box fees for 2022. By this time, I had to get back home and had to settle for what little I was able to accomplish. Sometimes when I have to take care of myself, it doesn't leave much time for the streets but I do what I can. 17-pound bag of cat food from the Star Milling Company, wet kitten food including baby/mama kitty food, cat toys, Inaba Churus for cats, bully stick, a pet carrier, socks, knit gloves and hand warmers were shared.

#1597 and #1598 Get 'The Works' thanks to donations from our friends at AnimalVictory.org....Our first spay and neuter day of 2022 did not turn out as planned. We were expecting three cats and two dogs. One of the cat's took off and could not be caught, one of the dog's got sick and could not come in and the companion of the other dog decided last minute that she was not going to allow him to be neutered Thankfully, we were able to get two male cats in for 'the works' so the morning was not wasted. Any day we are able to spay or neuter a pet is a good day! "One by one we get them done, because the only way to combat pet overpopulation and euthanasia in our shelters is to spay and neuter".

Things were not looking too promising this morning. I had a no show at Fairmount Park, there was nobody with pets at the Salvation Army and there was nobody outside with pets when I drove to Massachusetts Avenue on the Eastside. I did not want the day to be a waste of time so I contacted someone in Jurupa Valley and asked if they were around. They were so I got on the freeway and headed that way. I was able to visit with a couple of their pets and distribute needed supplies but I still had some free time. I texted someone else who had asked me for dog food. It turned out that they were just a couple of miles away from where I was so I went to meet them. It is not an area I usually drive to but I had the fuel and time so I went. We visited and I shared needed supplies with them too. I planned on driving out to the Sprouts in Eastvale next. While stopped at a light on my way, I spotted a couple with a dog that I had not seen in months. I hollered out the window for them to meet me in a parking lot across the street and they did. The dog was so happy to see me and the feeling was mutual. I gave the dog some treats, loaded them up with supplies and then went to run a personal errand before heading home.

I was contacted yesterday by someone with a puppy. They wanted to get him 'the works' but I told them he was too young. I did agree to meet with them this morning anyway. I said I would find them after driving up Massachusetts Avenue. Nobody was outside the pallet houses or the homeless shelter so I followed her instructions and went to where she was supposed to be. I was frustrated when nobody answered the phone and there didn't seem to be anyone where she said they were so I continued on until I reached a location in Colton. Seven pets and their companions were there so I spent some time giving the pets treats and toys while supplying the companions with items they were in need of. Hunter Park is not too far from where I was so I went there next. I did not get to visit with 'Jet' the other day. His companion was sick and it looked like they were sleeping in their car. They were awake today so I spent some time with them, before heading back across town. I was expecting a donation from Chewy.com and went to the post office but for some reason, it was not there. I will check back tomorrow.

Sunday On The Streets 1-2-2022

I did not visit with either of the two dogs I normally see on Sundays. This was due in part to something that happened across town yesterday and my wanting to go and check things out. Before doing so, I needing to go to storage. I had bags of Christmas Clearance pet toys that my daughter had picked up for us. There were a few Christmas pet outfits as well. I now have a jump on next year's holiday fun. I also met with two people there. One had had made pet jackets and the other had a donation of things she bought and she was also picking up something I had baked for her. When I left storage, I drove to downtown Riverside looking for someone who was in a photo texted to me last Sunday. It was a woman with a dog and I knew the area so I went there but was unable to find them. I continued on to a river bottom outlet in Jurupa Valley. I saw first hand what the camper looked like after it caught fire and exploded. I was told the woman was in the hospital and her dog was with someone in their motorhome. I had supplies for the dog but she had already left with someone else. I visited the one dog that was there and then went to another river bottom outlet near the Mission Avenue bridge. One of the companions of some dogs there just spent time in the hospital after having her gall bladder removed. She said she needed dog food and he was back out in her same place but had someone else caring for one of her two dogs. It was too much for her to deal with both as she is not fully healed.

The winds were gusting this morning so I decided to limit my time on the streets to two hours today. I was mainly interested in giving someone their AnimalVictory.org 'Holiday Love Bag' and checking on the status of a dog that might have been impounded yesterday. When I went to the Jurupa Valley river bottom outlet to meet the companion of a couple of kitties and a dog, she was not there. I was able to visit with two other dogs on that street but not the family I went there for. One of the people I was going to visit did not seem to be awake yet so I did not knock on the trailer they sleep in. I wish I had because there is a chance they might have been able to avoid a bad situation. I was told there was a candle burning which may have been knocked down by the dog. The companion and dog got out but the trailer actually blew up afterwards and the dog went running. The companion went to the hospital and people were going to start looking for the dog in the river bottom. Late this afternoon I got word that the companion was admitted to the hospital and the dog was found. I will be dropping food off to the person caring for her tomorrow or Monday... After visiting with the two dogs at that location, I drove out to another area of Jurupa Valley and visited a family with two dogs and two cats. When we were done, it was just about time to get home. I ran a quick personal errand and called it a day. Nestle Pure Life waters, McDonald's gift cards, hand warmers, Large Snack Bags with a variety of beef and cheese sticks, beef sticks, cracker packs, cookie packs, chicken salad snack packs and canned pastas, Holiday Love Bag from AnimalVictory.org, Vetericyn wound care spray, individual bags of dog treats, Inaba Churus for cats, chicken jerky treats for dogs, 17-pound bag of cat food from the Star Milling Company, Christmas pet toys and bully sticks were shared.
