Hello to all our GAIN supporters! Take a look at some of our current adoptables! They are wonderful dogs and cats that need a family to love them forever! Maybe one of these adorable GAIN babies will be the next member of your family! GAIN ADOPTABLES
The first two weeks of January have been awesome for
GAIN already! We have had tremendous success with several events put on so far
this year. The “Beggin’ for Boonies” event at the Andersen AFB Bx brought lots of much needed supplies and donations from all our GAIN friends, and the
GAIN Rummage Sale was also a HUGE success thanks to all the generous donations
and community members who came out to support the cause! Also, January 8th started off
this year’s first “Bark at the Park”, which is a cool event that encourages
community members to socialize their dogs with others at a monthly doggy play
date! DON'T WORRY THOUGH, if you missed out on any these events there is still
a chance to come out and support GAIN at our upcoming events this month. We hope you and your pets will join us on
January 22nd to honor Erynn Hayward at the 2k/5k benefiting GAIN, a
place that Erynn loved. Also, our furry
friends at the shelter love to be pampered, so come on out January 28th
and show them some love at our “Doggy Day Spa”. We love volunteers, so
if any of these events sound fun to you look on our facebook page for more
info! Hope to see you out and about at our wonderful events! THE ANIMALS SAY
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT!
Animal Legal Defense Fund Releases Annual Report Ranking Animal Cruelty Laws Across the Nation
Megan Backus (ALDF)
SAN FRANCISCO –Following
a detailed comparative analysis of the animal protection laws of each
state in the country, the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) has released a
new report ranking all fifty states, the District of Columbia, Guam,
Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories for the general
comprehensiveness and relative strength of their respective animal
protection laws— and thanks to recent improvements in its laws for
animals, Guam moved up 18 spots to 34th in the nation.
Think of what you remember most of your childhood. What do you remember most about Christmas as a child?
Do you remember times spent with your family? Do you remember one specific present as the most wonderful gift in the entire world? Do you remember getting gifts that you know you would never want or use?
The holiday season inspires us to give. Giving is a great thing, but we all need to keep the Layon Landfill in mind while Christmas shopping. Some gifts may eventually be taking up space in the landfill. Other gifts can keep things out of the landfill.
Nene Boo, GAIN's 2nd Chance rescue, is a darling little girl with some gorgeous eyes and tons of love to share! She suffered from demodex mange, malnutrition, and a lack of compassion from her prior owners. She was probably neglected for the majority of the first 6 months she was alive and was then abandoned. With vet care, and healthy diet, and lots of love from her foster family, Nene Boo was able to make the transition to a healthy loving girl. UPDATE! Nene Boo was adopted! She now is living happily in her forever home as Nahla. She is a powerful example that proper care and love can go a long way in the life of a dog with a heart full of love to give.
Guam Animals In Need would be nothing without the tireless work of its volunteers. With budget cuts a part of our every day world and a huge increase in the number of animals coming into the shelter we need your help!! To make the most of the time the volunteers spend helping out at the shelter, we are implementing a couple of handy processes. A volunteer training day is in the works so folks can feel comfortable walking right in and getting to work.
WOOF WOOF! This is going to be the doggie event of the year for sure! Even Sparky from Naval Base Guam has decided he wants to join in on the festivities! DOGTOBERFEST!! Lots of games, contests, prizes, raffles and demonstrations will ensure a full day of family fun and activities.
Durr Save the Furr is still ongoing through October 8th! Make your fundraising page and win cool prizes!!
