Friends With Four Paws Rescue missions lead from the heart by Jeff Finkel

“Dasher” likes to hang out (and is available!)

For anyone who has ever come home to a dog waiting for you with his tail wagging excitedly by the door, you know how much unconditional affection our pets provide. Our pets are a part of the family but not all dogs have a family to belong to or an owner to love. Friends with Four Paws is a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs and finding them suitable, loving homes. The President of Friends with Four Paws is Leah Rose, who moved from Verona, NJ to Oklahoma in order to dedicate her passion for rescuing dogs, in a place where it is needed most.

“Buddy Hackman” likes to snuggle and is looking for a home.

“I don’t understand the concept of an “outside dog,” said Ms. Rose. To Leah and most of us in Rockland County, the tri-state area and thankfully a large portion of the country, this is an absurd concept. But, in certain states with a farming community history, dogs are kept out of the house. In too many cases, they aren’t treated with any affection, which all dogs thrive on. The Oklahoma City Municipal Shelter takes in around 30,000 stray dogs a year and at any given time it has 500-800 animals in it. Ms. Rose, with the help of a small

group of volunteers, finds people who are looking to adopt a dog and aids in the transport of the dogs to loving owners in states in the Northeast. “Probably 75% of the dogs come from puppy mills and backyard breeders as Oklahoma has one of the highest populations of puppy mills,” said Ms. Jolene Weiss, who is the East Coast Director of Friends with Four Paws. Puppy mills are breeding operations that inhumanely house dogs that have been deemed unwanted by their breeders. At these places, they simply exist, waiting to be euthanized. The rest of the dogs at the Oklahoma Municipal Shelter are surrenders and strays that were dropped off. In Oklahoma, you can sign off your ownership rights to a pet you own and drop it off at the shelter. Recently, Leah rescued eleven Italian greyhounds, all dropped off in the night drop room of the shelter. The night drop room is “for cowards who don't want anyone to know they've done something so horrible,” said Ms. Weiss. This has the feel of pets being dropped off as if they were videotapes being returned to a video store. These dogs at the shelters have often been abused or simply discarded for having litters.

Essentials FEBRUARY 2012 n

The adoption fee from Friends with Four Paws may be higher than going through a breeder but “after spending $800 or so at the breeder for the dog, you then have to take the dog to a vet several times and get it spayed, which can be a $400 fee and you’ll end up spending almost $1,500 altogether,” said Ms. Rose. Friends with Four Paws charges a $475 adoption fee and they take care of all the hospital bills for you. One dog that they pulled from a shelter recently needed to have her joints fixed through surgery. “She walks a little funny now, but she is adorable, said Ms. Rose.” She pulled a dog recently from the shelter that was dragged by a car and had no skin on its side. He is the ultimate trooper and was named Diesel but will need months of wound therapy and probably multiple surgeries. Friends with Four Paws survives through the dedication of its volunteers and the donations made to by people who want to help dogs like Diesel find loving homes. Besides their facebook page, people can donate through the donation site ChipIn, which is also embedded in their facebook page and enables people to donate through it to help dogs like Diesel with medical bills. Another benefit of using Friends with Four Paws as opposed to other larger rescue agencies is that they have a presence in Oklahoma and NJ in Ms. Rose and Ms. Weiss. They are personally involved with finding potential owners for the dogs that are rescued and keep them updated throughout the adoption process until they meet their new pets after they are transported. They have a facebook page, where you can see updates on the dogs that have been placed and how happy they are to be with their new family. You can also read about the adoption events they have throughout the tri-state area which are held at stores like Petco. Jolene Weiss was one of those happy new owners, which is how she became involved with Friends with Four Paws in the first place. “My involvement came about when my fiancé and my oldest dog, Jake, died from liver cancer in May 2010, said Ms. Weiss. They were heartbroken and decided to take their time bringing in a new dog but quickly changed their minds and decided to adopt again sooner than later when they realized their other dog, Leo, “had become terribly depressed following the loss of his brother,” she said. Ms. Weiss became frustrated over the lack of communication following her application for dogs she found on some online pet finding sites. The rescues didn’t respond to her applications, much less call which is why she was pleasantly surprised when Leah called her up a day after receiving her application and told her that ”Paulie” (who now answers to the name Gus) was going to be hers. Ms. Weiss was surprised to find out that the dogs were from Oklahoma. Ms. Rose explained to her that she advertised on the East Coast and transported her dogs there through American Airlines. While waiting the two weeks for “Gus” to be neutered,

“Diesel the Dog”, rescued by Friends With Four Paws, recuperates from his wounds.

micro-chipped, vaccinated and de-wormed she was updated with photos of Gus and began to bond with him before meeting him. She also bonded with Leah and the two became friends. Before long, Ms. Weiss was helping out with administrative duties and then found herself “immersed in all aspects of the animal rescue business” Weiss had dabbled in volunteering for rescues in the past but Friends with Four Paws won her heart. “I felt an instant connection to Leah because of her caring and dedication, she said.”

During the last transport, they had a six year old, female golden retriever who was severely depressed and scared. “She wouldn't eat while on the transport and took at least a week to start realizing she was loved and cherished by her new family. She is finally beginning to come out of her shell and act like any other happy-go-lucky pet. Many of these dogs had been so traumatized, they don’t trust people. The beauty of the rescues and the amazing thing about dogs is that they respond quickly to affection. The transformation the dogs make in a short period of time is astounding once they realize they are in a safe environment and are shown love. They blossom before their owners’ eyes.

Friends with Four Paws used to do all their transports by plane but have recently started using a ground transport company which cuts down on costs. In June Ms. Rose and other volunteers loaded up passenger vans with 78 animals and The breeds you can usually drove them from Oklahoma adopt through Friends with to NJ. They drove them Four Paws are “daschunds, from Thursday to Saturday Chihuahuas, goldens, Italian and after a few rest stops “Gracie” finds a home at a Petco adoption event greyhounds and assorted, along the way, took them to scruffy, fluffy things” beamed Ms. Rose.

Paws facebook page. “We've all witnessed the dogs coming off transport and being welcomed into the loving arms of their new families. Sometimes you can't help but cry. Crying is a natural part of rescue,” Ms. Weiss reflected. Sometimes the dogs they take home from the shelter don’t survive due to bouts with disease, abuse, or the neglect they suffered, which can be heartbreaking for Ms. Rose, Ms. Weiss and the other people who volunteer their time to assist them.

For information on adopting, volunteering or donating to Friends with Four Paws to help dogs like Diesel get back on his paws; check out the Friends with Four Paws facebook page. It is filled with adorable photos of happy dogs and their happier owners.

Friends with Four Paws and other rescue groups will make non-partner transfers with the shelter and after three days they can pick up dogs. Ms. Rose will “pull” dogs out of the shelter and place them in temporary foster housing for them until they are transported to the east coast to adoptees waiting to meet their new pets. Ms. Rose is so fully dedicated 24/7 to helping these animals that she routinely uses her own house as a temporary foster home. She doesn’t have the budget for fulltime employees but is helped by fellow dog lovers who volunteer their time. Often the volunteers are people who have adopted through Friends with Four Paws and are so satisfied at finding loving dogs that they want to help place more dogs in need. They usually transport on average 10-15 dogs every two weeks.

YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU! A couple of young pillars in our local community have contributed a tremendous amount of time with the youth of Mt. Vernon. Pastor Beejoy Samuel (pastor of Bethel Gospel Center), Stephon Ritter (youth activist), William Small and Marcia Purell (former New York City teacher); put all their experience, concerns for the neighborhood, heart and soul into this program called RLR Children on the Move. Children on the Move, is a free after school program for residents of Mount Vernon with kids from 8-12 years of age. With all life’s trials and tribulations, it’s impossible to maintain a stable home because of little or no money. Not only does this program save families approximately $500 per month or $6,000 dollars per year, it also gives the kids hope. The program’s only requirement of the parents is to send their children to Sunday school and church every Sunday. Have you ever heard the saying “it takes a whole community to raise one child?” Well, pastor Beejoy says “not only do these kids have the support of the church, but they will help parents raise them to be leaders inside and outside the church”. Pastor Beejoy also says “that they can equip them to be able to provide for their families and guide them to be successful”. With activities such as, homework, games, baking, dance class and more, these kids have the opportunity to advance and utilize themselves productively. Your community needs each and every one of you! Things that may seem trivial to you may be inspirational to others!
