We have been experiencing very hot temperatures, actually since May and June. July was very, very hot and we know August won’t be much better. We appreciate our fans who braved the heat to visit our animals. We had a very good visitor month. Thanks so much.
Heat and your pets: After the sad loss of the Louisiana Tech mascot, TechXX, we hope people will truly watch out for their outdoor, and indoor, pets. Don’t leave them out in the heat too long. Be careful about any exertion as well. I happen to have two rescued
Kroger Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Program: If you are a Kroger shopper in
Current Volunteer Needs:
Carpenters: We need work done in our gift shop/admission building with some inside trim work, installing linoleum, drywall repair, entry/exit door roof needed and some minor water damage in the bathroom. Also, we need some wooden fence repair work.
Plumbing: We’ve had a continuous problem with the bathroom plumbing that we cannot seem to resolve, so we could use a plumber to help figure this one out for us.
Financial: We can always use money. This helps us with the normal maintaining of the sanctuary such as water, electric, and vet care. We appreciate any monetary donation you can provide and it is tax-deductible. And, it ALL goes to the care of the cats. We remain a 100% volunteer driven organization.
Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): Military personnel and Federal Employees can do payroll deduction donations to Yogie and Friends via CFC. This program is another good way to give financial assistance to the big cats and makes it easy for you to do so. Please consider Yogie and Friends when making your CFC contribution. Our CFC number is 42427.
Recycle: Don’t forget to recycle those ink jet/laser jet cartridges. We have a really good program of recycling and this is an easy way to help both the environment and the big cats when you recycle your cartridges. Check out the link on our website how to participate in our recycling program.

Facebook: Don’t forget to follow us on Face Book. We have a very active page and update it often with news and events as they happen.
PLEASE spay and neuter your pets. There are far too many unwanted adoptable animals dying everyday at local animal control facilities and this can be easily remedied in several ways. Don’t shop! Adopt!
Also, if you have outdoor pets, please make sure they have good shelter from the heat and other elements. Provide them shade, a clean and dry bed, cool clean water, and don’t chain your dogs to a tree thinking they are in the shade. The sun changes direction and you may not even realize your dog is chained in the hot sun as a result. They suffer the same deadly effects from the sun that we do. Heat stroke and exhaustion is a real thing and we’ve seen the catastrophic impact on outdoor animals. Make sure you give your dog heartworm prevention throughout the year. Not just the hot summer months. Cats also get heartworm and it is highly deadly for them. Talk to your veterinarian about all of these things. Take care of your pets and their humans. We need each other.
For the cats!
