Pat and Bill Arnold

STRAYDOG INC. - 501(c)(3) TAX-EXEMPT NON-PROFIT CORPORATION

A No-Kill Shelter for Lost and Abandoned Homeless Dogs

P.O. BOX 1465, GUN BARREL CITY, TEXAS 75147

Dog Fund balance dips too low!

Last Week's Donations: $775; Average Weekly Expenses: $1,800

This Week's Beginning Arnold Stray Dog Fund Balance: $1,239

Concerned but still smiling, Pat Arnold has worked (without pay) all day every day at her shelter since early 1993. How much longer does she intend to continue this schedule? Until: (1) euthanasia is no longer used to control the population of dogs (and cats), which will happen when, via spay and neuter, there will no longer be a surplus of dogs (and cats); (2) individual family homes are found to adopt at least a majority of the now 45 rescued dogs at Straydog; and/or (3) Straydog receives enough donations to hire a large enough crew of kennel helpers to do almost all the kennel work at Straydog, allowing Pat to manage the shelter on a more normal schedule.

Abandoning this project for any reason is not an option.
