MAGGIE and MIA are mom and daughter, and we hope to find a home for them together as a bonded pair. They were featured in the Salem News on Friday, July 11, 2014. Mom, Maggie has been spayed, and has the required shots and tests. Daughter, Mia is about 9 weeks old, has had her first distemper shot and is playful like any kitten. Both have nice temperaments and are litter box trained. Mom cat, Maggie has a white “flame” on her back, which is unusual. If interested in more information, contact Cheryl at cmezack@aol.com or call (978) 578-0588.

Make your pet a star! It’s that time of year again. We are seeking your best animal photos for our 2015 calendar. Last year we received over 200 submissions. There were so many great ones to choose from, it was really challenging to decide which ones to use. We regret that we could not use all the photos submitted.

We’re asking you to send us a favorite photo or two of your dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, any animal you care about, even one of a backyard squirrel or raccoon will be considered, as long as it’s a good and interesting photo. Please send your photos by email to bhannable@gmail.com. Since we hope to get the calendar printed in October, the deadline this year will be August 20th. Photos should be good quality, not blurry or too dark, or with no people or parts of people (hands, feet, etc.) in them. Please identify the animal(s) by name and state the owner’s name. We will not print owners’ names, but we need them in order to keep track of photos submitted. Preference will be given to rescued animals and those adopted through FOBA, so please let us know if your pet was adopted from FOBA, a shelter, or other rescue organization. We will do our best to acknowledge all photos received. Please share this message with anyone you think might be interested in having their pet in FOBA’s 2015 calendar.

The cover of last year’s calendar is shown below, to give you an idea of what we are looking for, in case you’ve never seen one of FOBA’s calendars. We usually sell the calendars for $12 each and that will probably be the price again this year. For anyone who would like to place an ad in the calendar, the prices are $25 for a business card ad; $50 for a half page and $100 for a full-page ad. Advertising space is limited.

If you had a pet in the 2014 calendar, we hope that you enjoyed seeing your furry friend there, and we hope you’ll submit another photo for the coming year. If your pet didn’t make the 2014 calendar, please try again. Whether you sent us photos and/or purchased a calendar last year, we want to thank you again for your support.

We will keep saving animals in need and pursuing our dream of one day having a shelter in Beverly. If you have any thoughts about how we can reach that goal or questions, please let us hear from you! Thanks so much.

Where would we all be in our lives without second chances? Here are four young to middle-aged cats, used to living together, and now seeking a new home or several new homes due to their owner’s recent passing. All pet owners can understand that this is one of our greatest concerns, what will happen to our pets after we die. Please do what you can: talk to your friends, and ask them to talk to their friends so we can finds homes for these cats. If you know of anyone who would like to adopt one or more of them, please contact Cheryl Standlee, Cheryl.standlee@gmail.com, (619) 265-1655.

Ellen, aka KD, Needs a New Home!

February 8, 2014

About three years ago, an elderly, wheelchair-bound woman named Lorraine looked from the balcony of her high-rise apartment in Saugus, MA, and saw a cat in the nearby woods.
