My boyfriend John and I will be visiting Bon in a month and I'll be able to pack some stuff for the shelter. What are your needs? Still leashes and Kong toys? Let me know and I'll do what I can. Looking forward to seeing my furry friends.

Hi Sue, thanks for the message. Yes, we really are in need of some things. With the economic downturn and the baggage charges, we are quite low on supplies for our shelter gift shop. I'll list the things we need. We don't expect you or anyone else to bring all of it, but I thought I'd put it all out there and whatever anyone can bring would be appreciated.

We really need:

Cat collars (the safety kind)
Dog collars (all sizes)
Kong toys
Toys for large and medium size dogs
Kitty teasers ("fishing poles" with dangling toys)

Flavor Doh for Dogs, Flavor Doh for Cats (this is soft flavored stuff that you can put pills in to get the animals to take them)

If there are any vets out there that will be down here soon we are always in need of Drontal for dogs and for cats; and Itraconazole or Griseofluvin.

If you can't bring anything, we can certainly always use cash donations. We are six months into our major sterilization program "Bonny the Superdog" We have sterilized over 300 animals already...our goal was 365 for a year so we are way ahead of what we anticipated. We are providing this service for free to those who cannot afford it, however we do have to pay the vets to do it. Any donation to this project would be immensely appreciated as the numbers are growing for requests for sterilizations and it is extremely important that we try to control the growing number of unwanted dogs and feral dogs on our island.

Thank you all for your support in the past....and hopefully in the future. We can't do what we do without you all.

Jane Madden
