Jackson’s Shelter of the Month this April is
in Warren, Michigan “The Wolverine State”
There’s a new T-shirt design this month to help All About Animals Rescue courtesy of ResQthreads!
Thanks also to Stretch & Scratch for donating a whole case of scratchers! To Spirit Essences for donating a shelter sized bottle of Stress Stopper holistic remedy. And to Sunny Seat for donating window seats for cats!
Here’s more info about this month’s organizations.
All About Animals Rescue is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) animal welfare organization, and is the premier spay/neuter and wellness care provider in Michigan; sterilizing over 19,000 cats and dogs last year. To reach distant communities, they offer transportation options and run 3 wellness clinics.
We’re working towards the day of No More Homeless Pets! By focusing on the fundamentals – spay/neuter, health and adoption – we’re saving lives and reducing the number of pets entering shelters. Because it’s clear that the feral cat population adds stress on the shelter system, we also provide monthly TNR education workshops, loan trap equipment and sterilize community cats. We utilize a network of foster homes to give homeless pets a safe place until their forever home is found. Lastly, Our Spay Michigan Hotline serves to alert pet parents all over Michigan to where they can find low cost spay/neuter. Please visit our website to learn more about our donor supported organization or to make a lifesaving donation. Thank you!
$10 from every item purchased on the Res•Q•threads site is donated to the animal rescue/shelter of the purchaser’s choice. This month, #TeamCatMojo chooses All About Animals!
Every Shelter of the Month receives a 32 oz. bottle of Stress Stopper.
Stress Stopper is formulated for all animals, not just cats. It helps animals feel grounded and protected, which makes it great for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trips to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and house guests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons. It is also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress.
As you can see, Stress Stopper is an all-around remedy, which has made it one of the best-selling remedies in the Spirit Essences line.
As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats’ attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.
After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.
