Dear Ellen, a question ...when will the winners be announced?
I have a friend who runs Big Oaks Farm Rescue in Greenwood, SC. As it sounds, they rescue abused & neglected "farm" animals
He entered your contest. In the mean time, his soon to be ex wife,has asked her attorney to demand he sell his rescue, he has over 300 animals with no place to go. The majority would end up being slaughtered. He is being charged with contempt of court
for refusing to sign a sell contract. His hearing is January 28, 2014.We are working with his bank to have donations accepted toward the purchase (from ex)his half and this would be a godsend.
Please announce when the winners will be named.

Thank you for all you do for all these beautiful creatures.
A fan, Dianne Hammond. (My numbers 1-864-616-7829 or 1-864-246-6236)

Dear Ellen,
I have applied for the PETCO foundation grant on behalf of Crossing Paths Animal Rescue with "The Story of Yogi"
Not a tearjerker, but it'll make you smile.

And we could sure use that grant...

I would like to nominate the Shelly Olree's Cat Shelter for your grant. This is a no-kill cat shelter in Hillman Michigan. It is run by a couple of cat loving women. They find homes for all cats that are found, rescued, or donated. They nurse many of the cats back into good health. The local humane society even gives them there sick cats to find homes for. Recently, they gave them 2 blind cat's and this shelter took care of them and found them good homes. They have been using Shutterfly for years to advertise and show there cats--please check out the website---https://shellyolreesshelter.shutterfly.com/dynamicduets.

They do all of this from the goodness of there heart, there own pockets and small donations from friends and family members. They are getting more and more cats and could use the financial help. Thank you for this program.

WE have a wonderful shelter in the Denver area called the Longmont Humane Society. Two years ago my husband and I adopted our wonderful pit bull terrier (Lillie) from this shelter where she had been for almost a year. Without LHS she never would have survived until we came along to adopt her. Since pit bulls are banned in several cities in the Denver metro area it falls to places like LHS to take many of these dogs who would automatically be euthanized at other area shelters. LHS provides an invaluable service to the community on a daily basis as was evidenced by the fact that they took in over 250 animals during Colorado's recent floods when their owners had no where else to leave them. Longmont Humane Society would be a great choice for this grant.

I've volunteered for over a year and now have been working for about 6 months at PAWS humane society in Fort Walton Beach, FL. We take in every single animal that comes to our door and unfortunately that makes it impossible for us to be a no-kill shelter. We're working on saving money to build a new facility to we can accomplish the goal of staying a humane society but becoming a no-kill shelter as well. Our free-roaming cat house is rotting apart and causing our cats to all become ill. We have over 60 runs for dogs that are slowly falling apart and rusting as well from all the bleach used over 30+ years. We are a non profit organization and run solely on donations. We are in desperate need of help to make our facility a better home for these poor souls that get dumped here every day. This is a very deserving facility. Thank you Ellen! <3

We have an amazing no kill shelter in Franklin Tn. 15 min from Nashville. We have found a new home, and would love to have the support from the Ellen Show. HSUS is an amazing part of our team also. We have no choice but to move from our current location, and we are making the best of a bad situation. So, love you much... and hope you can help!! Thanks!! We have submitted several videos. YAY

Dear Ellen, I am a volunteer with Dachshund Paws and Pals in Southern California. Dachshund Paws and Pals is a non-profit 501(C)3, no kill organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned dachshunds and other small breeds from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, and boarding facilities, they are able to rescue hundreds of dogs every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. Since 2005 Dachshund Paws has adopted out 1362 dogs into such homes. All of the dogs in their care will be spayed or neutered as soon as the animal’s health and age permits. No animal will be released from the rescue unaltered. Recognizing that every dog deserves a chance, Dachshund Paws will not discriminate on the basis of age or health. They will dedicate every resource at their disposal to the physical, emotional, and behavioral rehabilitation of each animal that they rescue. All decisions regarding the animals in their care will be based on the quality of life of that individual animal. They also serve as a resource to our community by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership when needed, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition. Dachshund Paws is not a very big organization but does amazing things just as well. Tara Hamilton is the founder and she is an amazing person. Works full time to support her family. She is raising her nephew and does rescue out of her love for animals. The rescue struggles with funds on a constant basis but even if it means maxing out her own credit cards she still keeps going. The rescue submitted an applicatin for the grant and it would be amazing to see her win. Even if it's not the $100,000 grant, even one of the smaller ones would be a significant help to the rescue. Thank you so much for partnering with petco for this!!

Ellen,
Reading these comments dimensions the need to help animals in this country. I don't know how you select as each of these institutions have real critical needs and each share similar stories of love,care, hope and adoptions. Kootenai Humane Society is located in Hayden Idaho and is a no kill facility. They are in dire need of a new facility,equipment, cages, food, etc... which would provide better care for the animals who reside there. Anything you could do to provide aide would be appreciated. In the meantime we will find joy in being entertained by watching your TV show.

Dear Ellen,

I adopted my beautiful cat "Zack the Attack Cat" from the Longmont Humane and Society in 2000. He was 4 years old. And he is still with me at 18! I am very active in animal rescue and the Longmont Humane Society is the best I have seen. When I moved I donated everything I could not take with me unflinchingly to the LHS because I KNEW it would go to the highest good for the animals. IMHO the grant would go to the highest good for the animals as this community cannot lose this invaluable resource. Please, please, please consider this wonderful facility and the wonderful people and volunteers that save animals lives every day.

Thanks so very much for all of your kindness you contribute to the world!

With love,
Sue

P.S. I have 6 rescue animals. 3 dogs and 3 cats. And I foster when I can. Does that make me crazy?

Dear Ellen,
You have just received (or are about to receive) 8 heartfelt letters from Girl Scout Troop 74447 in Longmont, CO. I recently began leading these girls and the first thing I asked them was, "How do you want to make a difference in our community?" The first thing out of their mouths was to visit the animals at the Longmont Humane Society! These girls have a deep love of animals and were very upset to hear that our Humane Society was in financial trouble. In our efforts to make a difference in this little community these girls wanted to show their support for this cause and teach others about the power of a girl! Thank you for reading their letters and for supporting the much-loved Longmont Humane Society.

Dear Ellen,
I'm a girl scout in Longmont, Colorado. Our humane society needs the $100,000 grant because we took in 130 cats, dogs, and more animals. I have a 13 year old dog about to die and we got him from the Longmont Humane Society. They are in trouble because they lost a lot of money. Thank you for considering us.
Your Friend,
Julia

Dear Ellen,
I am a girl scout from Longmont, CO and my troop has also made treats for them, visited the animals, and made a pillow. Also the humane society does a summer camp and supports kids. And if our humane society wins the grant it would be amazing because if they don't all of the animals will have to go somewhere else. Thank you for reading this.
From,
JuliAnne
