Well today we don’t have any awards but, we have a very special button that is even better than an award and I want everyone who reads this blog to put it up please! It was made by of course our friend the Purple Hatter! You should link the button to http://www.noahswish.org/ or put a link to Noahs Wish near the button.
This is the organization that mom volunteers with. She was deployed with the recent Morris fire and you can read about it here and see pictures here. The reason we think this is important is because lots of people don’t know about this organization. They work off donations and volunteers. They are like the Red Cross for animals, here is a little history:
Noah’s Wish came into existence in 2002, not to duplicate existing efforts to help animals during disasters, but to expand on what was already in place. Too often, efforts to help animals during life threatening situations have been gravely inadequate. We recognize that animals need and deserve an organized, consistent and professionally managed national disaster relief program. They will, otherwise, continue to pay for human indifference with their lives. How animals are managed during disasters is to implement well thought out, field tested policies and procedures that are practiced in all disasters. Relief efforts for people are managed this way and we feel they should be for animals too.
So here is the very cool button! And encourage everyone to learn about the organization and give to them if and when you can!!!
If you haven’t figured out why it’s called Noah’s Wish, well remember that guy who put all the animals in the ark when there was that big rain and flood for 40 days and nights?
