Creature Thoughts July 2020: Ryder

July’s creature thoughts is going to be a bit different. We have once again had our family life derailed. Many of you already know what is going on, but I’m sending out July’s newsletter to catch my friends up to speed, and to ask for your good thoughts for Ryder, and for our family.

Every Day a Gift

Ryder has been found to have masses on his spleen and liver, and the likely diagnosis is hemangiosarcoma. Please think good thoughts for my boy.

Availability Limited

Due to a family situation, my availability may be limited, and rather hit and miss, for an indefinite amount of time.

How Do We Look?

With all that’s going on, I thought we needed a new look at Gazehound.com.

Possible Minor Site Outage

Apologies in advance if there are minor site outages within the next couple days. Just some tech stuff behind the scenes to make the site better.

Creature Thoughts: May 2020, Wildlife Season

This year’s wildlife season brings many challenges to wildlife rescue centers and rehabilitators. The COVID-19 situation, with social distancing and limited gatherings, has meant that many wildlife centers have lost a key source of their donation income. At New York Wildlife Rescue, the organization I work with, the educational programs have had to be put on hold, and that means that a large percentage of their donations have dried up. There are many other wild animal rescue organizations, and individual rehabbers, in the same situation.
