The Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation Shelter Build 1/10/09

FROM: The Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation

This coming Saturday, the 10th of January, we will be sponsoring a rebuilding of the shelter at Raphael’s shelter (The Animal Lover’s Help & Rescue Mission) starting at 10:00 a.m. It is located at 2460 West 2nd Avenue, Hialeah, Fl. 33011. If you would like to come and participate please confirm at 786-499-1278 or this e mail.

Raphael has over 150 dogs and cats at his shelter, with no donations, no volunteers and all out of his pocket. He is a non-profit 501c3 org. He is the “place” where folks either turn in animals or literally dump them at the shelter. Some of our members, including yours truly, were there yesterday helping and sizing up the situation. We have over 30 kids doing Community Hours that will be participating, along all our org members. However, we need materials such as: cement, paint, tools, lumber, nails, drills, gardening tools and equipment, gravel rocks, a large carp or tent, dog & cat toys, shampoos, flea & tick meds, dog houses or igloos, a large shed, cat & dog food, dog collars & leashes, dog brushes, …well you get the picture. All supplies may be dropped of there or we will pick up. They may also be brought on Saturday. We also need a “lunch” sponsor; those kids will be hungry about mid day…

We also need hands on carpenters, plumbers, gardeners, roofers, contractors, name it…Noah’s Ark wouldn’t be a bad idea…if you have or know of companies willing to donate goods…we can give them the 501c3 forms for write offs.

If there’s any media who would like to cover or promote this…please contact me directly. It would be greatly appreciated…

Last but not least…if the City of Hialeah would like to help out…also contact me directly…

Looking forward to a successful rebuilding and your participation in such!
