May Message from Our Executive Director

It’s May 1st – May Day! May Day is a traditional festival of Spring. Over the years many celebrations around the world have included feasts, choosing a May Queen, and dancing around a Maypole, although I’m guessing that this year, people will celebrate May Day at home.

At FLR we are celebrating spring in the very best way for us – by bringing in more animals. In April, we brought nine animals into our organization, one of which was a pregnant female, Louisa, named for Louis May Alcott, author of Little Women. Louisa’s supposed due date was May 2, but she had other plans and went into labor in the morning of April 26. She had seven puppies - our "Author Pups" - each name comes from a famous author. ... Mama and pups are doing well. This is our third litter since opening for intake in April 2019. A big shout out to Rachel Johnson, our intrepid Assistant-Executive Director, and her husband, Curtis, for taking on Louisa after the two litters last year. We couldn’t appreciate them more.

Our incoming dogs were transferred from shelters. We have already started meeting one of our 2020 goals – to help shelters free up their resources – especially important during this Covid-19 crisis. Some of those transfers have been pregnant females (another 2020 goal), and we are especially grateful to be able to help in this way.

Our May Volunteer of the Month is Julie Felgar. Julie is fostering for us and currently dotes on her sugar gliders. We’re glad to have you aboard, Julie!

We hope that you all are well and safe, albeit still at home. We continue to focus on our mission and carrying it out in the safest way possible. We’re doing many of our activities online and when we need to go out in person (say we’re transporting animals) we take masks, gloves, sanitizers, etc. We want to keep all FLR-family members, our animals, our colleagues, and our supporters safe and protected.

Our Administrative Director, Susan Keenan, has started a new educational series called “Food for Thought.” She’s investigating current research projects of interest about animals. She’ll be taking a look at what's going on at various vet schools and reading through peer-reviewed, journal articles. Her first post was about implanting pacemakers in animals. Each installment will be posted on our Facebook page and also uploaded to our website. On our website, go to the Education menu and click the ‘Food for Thought’ menu item (https://www.fierceloverescue.org/info/display?PageID=20226#). This is exciting way for us to grow our educational programs during these days of social distancing.

We are so, incredibly thankful for all of the donations that we received have received thus far in 2020. We couldn’t do this without you.

I'll be talking with you again in June. Take care!

Jennifer Yanavitch
