“STAND BY YOUR DOG”
We just received this from FUPI!!!
I am happy to inform volunteers, fosterers and Cyber Sanctuary Members that Foreclosed Upon Pets, Inc. (FUPI) has officially begun its “Stand By Your Dog” transport program.
FUPI has created a coalition with The Animal Foundation, K94U Transport Company and Petcetera pet supply store to transport Las Vegas rescue dogs by airway to British Columbia, Canada. Ironically, while Clark County, Nevada has a significant overpopulation of homeless dogs, British Columbia, one the other hand, has a shortage of dogs.
FUPI’s part in the coalition is to evaluate and take possession of rescue dogs selected by K94U Transport Company from The Animal Foundation shelter. FUPI then obtains a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection for each dog. The dogs are then flown to Chilliwack, British Columbia where they are land transported to Petcetera pet stores. Petcetera fosters the dogs at their “in store” kennel facility until the dogs are adopted. Staff of Petcetera adheres to policy of the FUPI adoption agreement to make certain that all the dogs go to good loving and safe homes.
The first shipment of five dogs was on Wednesday June 8, 2011. Four of the five dogs were already adopted by Saturday, June 11, 2010.
FUPI plans to transport two shipments of five dogs per week. This calculates to over 500 shelter dogs per year saved by our combined efforts and the good people of Canada.
WHAT WE NEED TO MAKE IT WORK
1) We will need volunteers to evaluate the dogs selected by K94U Transport Company every Friday and Sunday at Animal Foundation dog adoption area.
2) We will need volunteers to help transport the selected dogs to our participating vet every Monday and Wednesday so that Health/ Travel Certificates can be issued.
3) We will need volunteers to help transport the dogs to the airport early Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
4) We need contributed airline approved animal carriers that are secured by nuts and bolts and have metal doors. The carriers must be approximately the dimensions specified below:
L x W x H
21 x 16 x 15
27 x 20 x 19
32 x 22 x 23
36 x 24 x 26
40 x 27 x 30
If you can volunteer one or two days a month for a few hours, then please call the FUPI office to schedule a date.

New York Times Bestseller "A Dog's Purpose" and the adoptable dogs of THE AMANDA FOUNDATION Present:
"WINE, CHEESE, AND BONES"
A Dog and People Book Party to benefit Palisades Village Book Friends*
Wednesday, June 8, 7:30 P.M.
1049 Swarthmore Avenue, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Bestselling author W. Bruce Cameron and his dog Tucker (and Tucker's Amanda Foundation dog friends) will be signing copies of the new trade paperback of the New York Times bestseller A Dog’s Purpose at a “Wine, Cheese, and Bones” Party at Village Books (1049 Swarthmore Avenue, Pacific Palisades) on Wednesday, June 8th at 7:30pm.
Half of the book’s cover price will go to the Palisades Village Book Friends, a non-profit 50 (c)(3) organization formed to promote and support literary events in the community, and to ensure the continuation of the tradition started by Village Books of organizing author readings, signings, and other literary events.
The Amanda Foundation is a partner is this benefit to help the “Dog Friendliest Independent Bookseller in Los Angeles” to survive and thrive. One of LA’s oldest and most respected animal charities, The Amanda Foundation has been a pioneer in spay and neuter programs. Several of The Amanda Foundation adoptable dogs will be in attendance for guests to meet, as well as Dina Zaphiris, host of Animal Planet’s “Petfinder” with one of her dogs that has been trained to detect cancer by scent.
A Dog’s Purpose spent 19 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list when it was published in hardcover, and it will be debuting on the New York Times list in trade paperback this Sunday, June 12th.
A Dog’s Purpose is also coming to the big screen as a major motion picture from DreamWorks Studios with W. Bruce Cameron writing the screenplay.
Everyone who reads A Dog’s Purpose is passionate about it. It was voted “Top 5 Best Fiction of 2010” in the Goodreads Readers Choice Poll, and it was named a "Best Read 2010" in Cesar's Way Magazine. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker also raved about it on her website, saying “I laughed and smiled and cried…This book is wise and sure to open the hearts of all who read it.”
Kids, dogs, and grown-ups are all invited to meet W. Bruce Cameron and Tucker and support Village Books, one of Los Angeles’s most treasured independent bookstores.
