Rock Out w/ Brooklyn Bands for Animal Rescue

Littlefield has so graciously given us a venue to raise funds for the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network who: educate the public on the correct and moral way to care for their animals, including the importance of spaying and neutering pets to help stop the flow of abandoned and unwanted animals in our community, and help owners find new homes for their pets or helps reunite them with lost pets and work with other humane organizations to help locate lost pets and rescue abandoned and abused animals.

This great organization has come close to shuttering operations due to loss of public funding--animals cannot vote, so why should politicians give them money?

Osekre and Patricia form this meetup are getting a lineup together--please put the date aside and check back with Osekre and The Lucky Bastards facebook page to see updates on who is going to come play to support our furry friends. Check out their website and think of bringing items from thier wishlist to donate: http://brooklynanimalfosternetwork.org/wish_list.html

Also, if you work for a great company, ask them about sponsoring or matching gifts to help us get our animal friends the help they need!

    Brooklyn Animal Foster Network (BAFN) is suffering the double whammy of decreased donations and increased need, as more people give up pets they can no longer afford to keep.

    The long-standing BAFN with a network of more than 900 foster homes in Brooklyn has had to scale back their work and is still struggling to stay afloat, their operators say.

    BAFN, a nonprofit outfit that has rescued more than 2,500 abandoned and stray dogs and cats since 2005, has reduced the number of animals it takes in because it can't afford to maintain them. Its budget has dropped by about 70% since the recession.

    The money is needed to allow them to continue rescuing a huge number of abandoned animals. Just wanted to clarify this is the largest need they are fulfilling and need help to keep doing.
