As you are likely aware, the biggest dog fighting bust in United States history took place last week, resulting in 407 pit bulls being delivered to the Humane Society of Missouri. HSMO has asked for donations of money and supplies to help with the care of these dogs while their fates are decided. You can donate money, and read the story, here: Humane Society of Missouri - http://www.hsmo.org: Humane Society of Missouri- Largest Dog Fighting Raid

In consultation with several other members, I have decided to put together a Chaz care package. Basically, mail your donated supplies to me (or have them mailed to me) and I'll put them all together in a couple of boxes and ship them to HSMO. I'm planning to ship on the 1st of August. PM me for my address.

HSMO needs the following things that I can reasonably forward: New and gently-used sheets, full-size towels, blankets, and sturdy toys (large Kong toys, large Nylabones).

Hopefully, we can get enough together to show how many people care and are willing to help. Thanks.

Part of the idea of doing it this way, and having it all in a big box or two is to make it clear that it is a group of people doing this . . . that a group of people mobilized to make this gift.

That, and I hope opening the box will be like Christmas.

I'm sure you've already thought of this, but be sure to put the Chazhound name on it :)

I intend to not only state that it is from Chazhound, but to include a letter explaining who we are, what we stand for, and why we think it is so important.


By the way, PM me for my address

I think they mean just the sheet . . . and probably gently used mean you would give them to like to good will or something . .. no holes, etc.

I THINK all the dogs ended up in MO.

I'm going to post this up as a note on facebook as well to see if I can get a few more people to donate stuff. I'll just have them give it to me and I can either ship it to you Lilavati... or since I don't live too far from you I can probably just meet up with you somewhere.

That will work. I'm trying to con some friends/family into donating as well.

I've already got one friend who is adding some stuff to the package. She's got some sheets and she said she's running to Petco to get some stuff for her own dog and will pick up a few things to add to the package while she's there. I've got quite a few sheets lying around, blankets and a few towels that I can add. I may go get a couple large nylabones as well.

It's so awesome you guys are doing this. A few of us are getting together and sending a package from this coast so I hope they're flooded with goodies.

I'm digging through the closet for sheets and towels and such. Unfortunately, having just moved, a lot of donatable stuff was already donated. Hopefully more orders start coming in so I can pass on those donations.

I'm sure I have some old sheets I could throw your way.... don't have much in the bank account so can't really afford nylabones or anything.. but we'll see.
