One of Doug Stensgard’s dogs, Annie, looks out over what used to be a 5-acre yard and an outbuilding, now flooded by the rising Red River in Fargo. Stensgard built an earthen and sandbag dike around his home in the hope of holding back the floodwaters. Associated Press.

As icy floodwaters climb to a record crest of 43 feet at Fargo’s Red River in North Dakota, forced and voluntary evacuations continue. The Red River is expected to crest at about 52 feet Monday or Tuesday in Grand Forks, ND. More rivers, creeks and streams rise around the state…

Kinship Circle has spoken to some resources below, as well as local authorities. If we’re asked to deploy any volunteers in our independent network, we’ll update you. In the meantime, below are ways to help flood-stranded animals via monetary donations and/or supplies. Fargo-Moorhead Humane Society lists a phone number for potential volunteers [#2 below].

BILLY’S LAST CHANCE

City Council member Tony Cardenas has presented a motion to stop the L.A. Zoo’s $42 million elephant exhibit renovation. Despite its mammoth expense to taxpayers, it still will not provide the space elephants need, and elephants will continue to suffer and die painfully and prematurely at the Zoo. Fifteen elephants have died at L.A. Zoo. More than half never lived to age 20. Elephants have a natural lifespan of 60-70 years.

We urgently need your help to close the L.A. Zoo elephant exhibit and send its lone elephant, Billy, to a sanctuary. We are so close to freeing him from his lonely existence in a miserable, barren zoo pen — please don’t let him down! This is our last chance to make a difference. There are two very important meetings next week + other actions to take:

Kinship Circle - 2008-12-26 - Brindi's Life Matters 02

Many Kinship Circle Primary and KC Animal Disaster Aid subscribers participated in our recent campaign to save Brindi — the five-year-old shepherd-lab mix on “death row” for the last six months in Halifax, Nova Scotia. On January 5, 2008 Brindi’s person, Francesca Rogier, appeared in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia to plead for Brindi’s life…

BRINDI SITS IN PURGATORY AFTER GUARDIAN PLEADS TO SPARE HER LIFE

1/6/09, SOURCE:
Jim Willis, tiergartenjim [at] yahoo.com
A Cause for Paws – Toronto, c4p [at] mediaintelligence.ca
Carol Waterman, cbwaterman [at] videotron.ca

Halifax, Nova Scotia/Jan. 6, 2009:

Francesca Rogier pleaded in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia yesterday that her beloved dog “Brindi” be spared from a death sentence. Brindi, originally rescued from an animal hoarder and then adopted by Rogier, has sat in a Halifax shelter since last summer, after she was seized by local animal control. Rogier has been denied the appeal process on the decision to kill Brindi and forbidden from visiting her dog in a shelter that has sometimes gone without heat during bitter cold. After hearing all testimony, Justice Duncan R. Beveridge is deliberating over Brindi’s fate with no word yet on when that decision will come. Meanwhile, Brindi sits alone in the shelter,
waiting to be reunited with Rogier. Or not.

Halifax (Nova Scotia) has recognized that Brindi is not a threat to humans. It was informed by two respected trainers that her wayward behavior does not signify aggression and definitely can be corrected. Yet the city prefers to have her pay the ultimate price for human error, rather than accept reasonable alternatives that would both maintain safety and keep her alive.

KINSHIP CIRCLE realizes that not everyone agrees with this plea to spare Brindi’s life. We respect opinions, but ask that you refrain from sending us an ALL-CAPS, exclamation-point complaint. Any time you disagree with our stance — in this case, no-kill without exception for a healthy animal — simply delete the alert. Thank you for your unyielding voice for animals.
