With all the pet lovers ’round these parts, I figured this would be of particular interest. Juston sends along this note from the Lifeline Animal Project…
We like it when the dogs at LifeLine have a cold nose…but not THIS cold. Unfortunately, the furnace that heats our no-kill Dog House on nights like last night, when temps dropped into the 30s, has broken beyond repair. Some of our rescued residents are older pets, in recovery from surgery, or being treated for a medical condition, and it’s getting too chilly for the 70+ canines that call LifeLine’s Dog House home.
While trying to find a solution to this bit of bad news, we got a call from our College Park clinic staff that the water heater there had broken – also beyond repair. Double disaster! Each week, the LifeLine Spay & Neuter Clinic in College Park serves about 120 family pets, feral cats, and dogs and cats from other rescue groups. And they need hot water!
Our good friends at Ace & A Heating and Air Conditioning are giving us a great discount on a new furnace, but we need your help! Right now, we are moving dogs to warmer areas of the building at night, and staff members are taking some of the older dogs home with them in the evening. With the temperature dropping, we need your help to keep the promise that we make to every pet in our program. We promise to protect their lives, to give them loving care and keep them safe and comfortable. And warm!
Please contribute what you can to help us replace the furnace for the dogs and our clinic’s hot water heater. With winter at the door, we absolutely need both to keep doing the vital work that LifeLine does everyday.

On behalf of all the animals at LifeLine, thanks so much!
