Thank You!

Thank you to all that came to our Adoption Event on Saturday! We can't continue to do what we do without your support and donations, which keep us going! Thank you to our volunteers who were at the event as well. Without you, we cannot continue to have events!

We hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and has a wonderful week. We'll see you not this coming Saturday but the one after that at Pet Health and Clark Street Pet Food.

In the meantime, check out our Facebook page at:

Be sure to 'Like' us once you visit, and tell all of your friends too! We could use a little more support on our Causes page as well. Just an FYI, you can donate to A Tail At A Time through our Causes page as it directly links to our account.

To those who have already donated -- a HUGE THANK YOU! We greatly appreciate it as it keeps us alive, quite literally! We rely on donations to supply vet care for our animals, as well as the spay/neuter costs, vaccinations, microchipping, and FIV/FELV (Combo Test) testing that all of our animals up for adoption receive. We also provide food and litter to our foster homes if they cannot financially support the animals they graciously provide temporary homes for.

Lastly, we wanted to say THANK YOU to those that have adopted a shelter pet -- not only from us but from all shelters and rescues! You are really doing an amazing thing by saving the lives of shelter animals. If you live in Manhattan you should visit and/or volunteer for the AC&C up on 110th Street between 1st & 2nd Avenue. There are shelters in Brooklyn and Staten Island as well that could use your help! Thank you all for saving their lives, and as always, don't neglect to SPAY OR NEUTER your pet. It cuts down on shelter overpopulation and the amount of euthanizations that the shelter has to do every day.

Carriage Horses Need Your Help

From: Elizabeth Forel <>
Date: July 6, 2010 11:23:38 AM PDT
Subject: Action Alert: Letters needed for carriage horse rescue & accident
Please write a letter to the NY Times.  It must be done today since things move quickly with these newspapers.  Both of these stories were in the paper version of the NY Times so letters to the paper are acceptable.  You can mix the stories in your letter or do them separately.  But you must not go over 150 words.  If you do, they will not be considered, or if they are, can be edited in a way that you do not like.   Indicate your full name, address and telephone number on the letter for verification if they publish it.
Rescue of Carriage horse - in NY Times (paper version)  7/6/10 - "For A Carriage Horse, A retirement upstate"

Another article that appeared both in the paper version and online concerns a tragic accident in Iowa where carriage horses spooked, causing an accident that resulted in the death of a woman and injuring about 25 people. 

in NY Times (paper version) 7/6/10 "In Iowa, Day at Parade turns deadly when horses bolt with a carriage"

Thank you.
