Y'all, we have a FRIEND in need. His name is Leonard Sharp. Ohhh, you may know him just as "Leonard" . . . .but he is a dear friend to all who know him. He is a crusty, old, retired Army pilot but a pussy cat, really, especially to the animals. Last weekend, Leonard's house burned. If there is a "fortunate" to this story, Leonard and all his animals and foster animals were not harmed. For that we are, eternally, grateful.
Leonard can be caught helping people, too. He's been encouraging and mentoring a few troubled youths in his neighborhood; friending a mentally handicapped youth who has no Dad and when adults stop by asking for work . . . .he can always "find" a project they can complete, for which he gives them a good day's wage.
Thank you for caring. Please make a donation using one of the following three methods :

WMA Summer Art Camps
The Wiregrass Museum of Art is pleased to announce this year’s summer art camps. The museum will feature three separate camps highlighting different aspects of visual arts. This is the second year the museum is offering weeklong classes. In response to last year’s popularity, more sessions have been added this year. Register now—space is limited!
Art Attack! is a camp all about creativity and fun. Whether a budding artist or just a kid with an active imagination – everyone will have fun as they learn art fundamentals and display their masterpieces in the Art Attack showcase at the week’s end. Art Attack for ages 6-9 will be held June 24-28, Monday through Friday. The camp for ages 10-13 will be held July 15-19. Sessions will be held in the morning, from 9am to 12noon, and afternoon, from 1-4pm. Prices are $95 for members and $105 for non-members.
Play in the Clay! is a pottery camp where kids can learn a variety of ceramic techniques and create three projects to take home. Due to drying and firing time, campers create their work during the week and return the following Thursday for glazing and decoration. Play in the Clay is available for children ages 5-9. It will be held July 23-26 and August 1 (glazing day) from 10:30-11:30am. Prices are $55 for members and $65 for non-members.
Art Around the World gives children the chance to explore the world through various art forms. Kids will travel to a different country each day, learn the culture and customs, and create a work of art native to that region. This camp is available for children ages 5-10. It will be held August 5-9 from 9am-12noon. Prices are $95 for members and $105 for non-members.
For more information about the summer art camps at WMA and related activities, visit www.wiregrassmuseum.org or by calling (334) 794-3871.
About the Wiregrass Museum of Art
On the second Saturday of every month, from April through October, we have a dog wash. It's held at Pampered Pets Paradise on Rucker Boulevard between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. We'll clean your pooch, clip toenails, and do a world-class job getting your furry kids ready to enjoy the comforts of your clean home. There is no set fee, and whatever you donate is greatly appreciated, as it helps us to keep our doors open.
The Save Our Strays (S.O.S.) Animal Shelter was founded in 1981 to rescue stray and unwanted dogs and cats. Six years of hard work by dedicated volunteers and financial contributions from individuals and businesses allowed us to open our present no kill shelter in 1987. We receive no public funding. We are a private, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that relies exclusively on contributions and fund raising.
Ashford Youth Sports Association will be hosting a 5K Lupus Awareness walk on Saturday June 15th. Walk start time will be @ 9am. The walk will be held at the Ashford Train Depot. We will be there @ 8am if anyone wants to sign up the day of the walk.
We will be sending 50% of the proceeds to the Lupus Foundation of America Mid-South Chapter to further the research of the auto immune disease. The other 50% will be used to purchase our cheerleaders and football players much needed equipment and uniforms. Our cheerleaders and football players will be participating in the walk.
Day of walk registration is $25. For more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Jessica Exum (334) 618-8382, Estella McGriff (334) 714-6151 or Anna Wright (334) 405-1071
Today, nearly half our nation’s fighting forces are members of the Guard and Reserve. When they are called to active duty, they leave behind a family, a community, and a job. Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense agency, honors and protects the bond between service members and their civilian employers. Whether serving our country or supporting those who do, we all serve. To learn more about ESGR, call 1-800-336-4590, or visit www.esgr.mil.
Alabama Voters for Responsible Animal Legislation
Dear AVRAL members, in an effort to build membership in our organization, we're taking several different approaches. The most effective and most persuasive form of marketing is word-of-mouth, or in this case, you sending emails to everyone you know, inviting them to join AVRAL. We have run-off elections coming up on Oct. 9, some of these elections are decided by a mere 100 or so votes, so it's critical to build membership. If you to DO NOTHING ELSE as an AVRAL member, please do this. Send the letter below to everyone you can think of-feel free to modify if you like.
(Text of Email to copy, paste and forward)
Hello! You are receiving this email because I believe you are someone who can help us improve the lives of Alabama's companion animals. If you are tired of the way Alabama's animals are treated--- the starving, the cruelty, the overpopulation, the dogs wandering the roadways, the cats gathering around dumpsters to find food, JOIN AVRAL. AVRAL stands for Alabama Voters for Responsible Animal Legislation. We are a nonpartisan political action committee consisting of everyday Alabama citizens who exercise political power by forming voting blocs. Your vote is your power. We will let you know which candidates are animal-friendly and which are not. We'll let you know their voting record on animal cruelty issues. We'll post questionnaires they've completed for your review. You live in a voting district, and we will invite as many people as possible in your district to join the voting bloc. The more people in the bloc, the more powerful you are. This is the only way to send a message to Montgomery: we will no longer tolerate the inhumane, uncaring treatment of animals in this state. And while a legislator may not agree with our position, if they want to get elected/remain in office, they need to know we have sufficient membership to vote them in or send them home. How much does it cost you to join? NOTHING. There are no dues, no fees. All we ask is that you send this email to EVERYONE YOU KNOW who loves animals. Help us build membership in each of Alabama's 67 counties. That's the first step. Help us end the suffering. Please visit our website http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001PAxYsGB1MKYzfuwBi47nVTJQgSMw9_WoHT0lUeUHM6gvKEsIe4lzwhoAq5qt32jcdJbnn677GcAvvqvG_MpL2tGTajNjz1cqrw9N6zW5kalRGTueYZRjdJRaFUbjnN7 to read about our key issues and to join us. I hope you will join us,

I have a 501c, that I established 2 years ago. The name is Opp Paws and Claws. I have had many animals left at my veterinary hospital over the years. Rather than euthanize them, I place them. I can no longer house this many animals. I need help placing primarily cats, kittens, and bulldogs. All of these animals have had basic to advance health care, at my expense. I have not been able to find funding to continue or do more.
Currently, all animals housed at the clinic are seeking homes. I do screen applicants. I require that people have a current veterinarian and an acceptable enclosure for dogs. For cats we ask them to be inside or a protected area. There are nominal adoption fees that go to the 501c. All these animals can be viewed on the petfinder website under opp paws and claws.
Please call for information (334) 493-6687
I would like to continue to help abandoned animals but must have foster homes for those I help. If they could be placed in a permanent home that would be best. Thank you for your help! Faith Drumheller, DVM.
The S.O.S. Animal Shelter in Enterprise needs your help...
The Shelter is always in need of volunteers to help walk and wash dogs, play with and socialize all of the animals and, of course, do all of the down-and-dirty chores that come with caring for the animals. Volunteers at the Shelter must be at least 14 years old or supervised by a parent, and must be able to follow rules and guidance given by the manager. The Shelter is happy to be recognized by the Enterprise High School National Honor Society as an organization for which members may receive all of their required community service hours this year. To arrange to volunteer at the Shelter, call 334-393-1743 from 9a-5p Monday-Saturday or 8a-4p on Sunday.

Think about two seconds - it's
not very long. It takes longer than that to open and close a car door,
send a quick text message or hug a child before tucking her into bed.
But that tiny increment of time is an important measure. Every two seconds
somebody in the United States needs blood. While we are at work and
all through the night, that need never sleeps.
