Wine Tasting Benefiting Homeless Animals THIS Sunday
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Animal lovers are invited to Liberty Humane Society?s fourth annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser on Sunday, March 2nd from 5-7PM at VB3 located at 475 Washington Boulevard in Jersey City. Guests will be invited to sample a selection of red and white wines, antipasti dishes, and gourmet pizzas while toasting to another year of helping the helpless furry friends in our local community.

This fundraiser benefits animals like Ruby, a goofy and oh-so lovable dog that was surrendered by her owner after a failed attempt at impregnating her that ended with an infection they couldn't afford to treat. It was the owner?s intent to have her euthanized rather than treat the infection, but luckily Liberty Humane was there. Ruby was taken into the shelter, is now scheduled to have the surgery she needs, and will be ready to find a new, loving family very soon! The type of care Ruby is receiving at Liberty Humane is only possible because of our community?s involvement in events like this.

Tickets to the annual Wine Tasting are $35 and can be purchased here in advance: https://interland3.donorperfect.net/we ... .aspx?name=libertyhs&id=2. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Liberty Humane Society & Neighborhood Cats Team Up to Fix Ferals in Jersey City
#2
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Things are looking up for feral cats in Jersey City?s 07306 zip code. That?s because the area, currently overrun with unowned cats, has been selected as the focus of a 250-cat targeted spay/neuter project, to be jointly administered by Liberty Humane Society and Neighborhood Cats. The project is made possible by a grant from PetSmart Charities?.

In the coming months cats in the target area will be humanely trapped, spayed and neutered, and returned to their original locations. Spay/neuter services will be provided by the People for Animals clinic in Hillside, NJ. The cats will also be vaccinated against rabies and ?eartipped? ? under anesthesia the tip of the left ear is painlessly removed, to permanently mark the cat as being ?fixed?. The whole process is called Trap-Neuter-Return or ?TNR? and is the best way to gradually reduce the numbers of outdoor cats while improving overall health and eliminating the mating behaviors that create public nuisances, like pungent tomcat spray and late-night caterwauling.

The city?s 07306 zip code accounts for one of Liberty Humane Society?s highest intake rates of feral and stray cats, with 143 kittens and adults turned in over the past year. TNR for this targeted project will be concentrated in the area?s northeast section as far west as Tonnelle Avenue and with Lincoln Highway marking the southern border.

Residents in the target area can report the locations of unneutered colonies by contacting our Jersey City Feral Cat Hotline, (201) 351-7772 or by emailing info@neighborhoodcats.org. Community members can also receive training from Neighborhood Cats to become feral cat caretakers ? a sort of kitty guardian angel ? to make sure their colonies are properly fed and sheltered. Anyone interested in fostering a kitten or friendly cat rescued from outdoors during the TNR project may inquire about Liberty Humane Society?s foster care program; visit the shelter at 235 Jersey City Blvd. or email volunteer@libertyhumane.org.

Celebrity Guests Attending Liberty Humane Society’s Bark in the Park

Not too shy to talk


Liberty Humane Society is thrilled to announce that James Roday and Maggie Lawson, stars of the popular show ?Psych? on the USA Network, will be attending Bark in the Park 2012 on September 29th in Hoboken's Church Square Park! James and Maggie will be leading the walk fundraiser which begins at noon and then hanging out with attendees throughout the day. They will also be the hosts of the LHS Doggie Couture Fashion Show which will feature the shelter dogs walking down the runway in clothes donated by local pet stores.

"Maggie and I are thrilled to be hosting Liberty Humane's Bark in the Park. We initially mistook the event for a tree hugging ceremony involving a communal picnic. Since we'll probably never make it to Burning Man, it seemed like a fun little excursion to jump into,? said James Roday. ?Then we were told it's actually going to help promote animal welfare. As rescue "parents" ourselves, this was even more ideal. But seriously, LHS is like the little engine that could, so please come out and support a great cause and be a part of an event that will have a positive impact in your community. And adopt a dog -- or a cat or both."

Sign up for the Bark in the Park walk today and attend the pet expo afterwards for your chance to meet the stars of ?Psych? and to be a part of this blowout fundraiser for Liberty Humane Society. Register via the Bark in the Park website at http://libertyhumane.donorpages.com/Event/

Liberty Humane Society: THE KITTENS ARE COMING Video Parody
#9
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Every spring hundreds of kittens and pregnant mother cats are taken in by Liberty Humane Society during ?kitten season? which is the time of year when cats typically reproduce. Since LHS is an open-admission shelter, the facility accepts each and every kitten that arrives on the doorstep. In past years, LHS has taken in as many as 1,000 kittens during this season, which runs from March through late-summer. At times, ten or more kittens can come through the doors in just one day! The unseasonably warm temperatures this year created a longer mating season which will only increase the flood of kittens.

To highlight the ?threat? kittens pose to the shelter?s stability, we?ve created a video parody that we hope will increase awareness about LHS?s plight.
Please visit the LHS website to view our spoof and see how the community can support LHS during this time.

Displaced Residents from the 300 Washington Street Fire in Hoboken Establish a Memorial Fund with Li
#11
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Pets enrich our lives by providing companionship and unconditional love; therefore, the tragic loss of a pet can leave a family absolutely devastated. It can be especially traumatic when that loss was the result of a sudden, unforeseen accident. Kevin and Bethany Rose of Hoboken, New Jersey experienced just that on the evening of Sunday, February 19th when their two beloved cats, Tessa and Jack, were trapped in the horrific fire that tore through their apartment located in the 300 Washington Street building in Hoboken which is currently undergoing demolition.

The fire began shortly after 7pm on the bottom floor of the building. While Bethany and Kevin were out of town for the evening, their cat sitter Pat Lombardi of Pat?s Pets called in a frantic state to notify them of the fire. Devastated by the news, Bethany and Kevin immediately rushed back to Hoboken. All they could think about was the safety of their two cats. ?The scene was horrifying when we arrived in Hoboken. By the time we reached the building, firefighters were no longer allowed into the burning structure and the fire was raging on the fourth and fifth floors.? said Bethany. At 4am the next morning, Bethany and Kevin finally received the news that their beloved cats Tessa and Jack did not survive the fire. They had been victims of smoke inhalation. Companions until the end, Tessa and Jack were found by firefighters under the bed huddled together. The next day, Pat Lombardi returned to the apartment with firefighters to retrieve the two cats so they could be properly laid to rest.

Tessa and Jack came into Bethany and Kevin?s life in 2008. Tessa had a rough start. She was initially found by a rescue group as a pregnant mom and roaming the streets of the Bronx. Bethany and Kevin adopted Tessa after her kittens had already found their forever homes. Tessa had some medical problems at first including an ear infection that required surgery resulting in deafness and imbalance. Despite this, her playful personality persisted so the family decided to bring a playmate, Jack, into her life. Together, Tessa and Jack won the hearts of everyone they came in contact with ? even those individuals who insisted they didn?t like cats.

In honor of Tessa and Jack?s memory, Bethany and Kevin Rose will be setting up ?The Tessa and Jack Memorial Fund? at Liberty Humane Society. The memorial fund will be utilized to develop infrastructure improvements to Liberty Humane?s cat housing. After a successful kennel fundraising campaign performed last year, Liberty Humane is still in need of housing upgrades for the thousands of homeless cats that come through the door every year.

?Proper housing is one of the leading factors in decreasing stress and medical complications in the shelter while providing a more esthetically pleasing environment to visitors, which leads to more adoptions? says Irene Borngraeber, Director of Development and Operations. ?We are deeply touched that the Roses have chosen to honor Tessa and Jack?s memory through such a lasting gift to Liberty Humane. Their generosity in the midst of personal tragedy speaks to the strength and endurance of the human-animal bond?.

?Kevin and I have shed many tears over our losses over the past couple of weeks, but we have also been touched by the incredible kindness that has emerged,? said Bethany. ?We want to turn this terrible event into an opportunity to help other cats and animals in need.?

A special page has been set up in Tessa and Jack?s honor on the Liberty Humane Society website at www.libertyhumane.org/donate.php which can be accessed to donate to the memorial fund. Please help keep the memory of Tessa and Jack alive by generously contributing to this fund. With your help, Liberty Humane Society can continue to help other cats like Tessa and Jack find their loving companions.
