California Condor

These magnificent birds have come back from the brink of extinction to soar the great canyons of the Southwest United States.  In the 1970s, these birds were reduced to just 22 birds and a few nesting pairs due to pesticide use such as DDT and loss of habitat.  A captive breeding program led by San Diego's Wild Animal Park helped to stabilize the population and now more than 400 birds are found in several southwestern states and they are breeding in the wild.  Their lives are still as risk due to lead poisoning from ammunition.  Efforts today are directed to education for hunters to switch to copper bullets.

Results have been posted in the +Landscape Photography Community contest "Into The Woods".  Check out the winners and all the great photographs. Here's a link:

Spider Woman Rock  --  Canyon de Chelly

I visited this wonderful place just after a heavy rainstorm.  The red rocks were washed clean revealing the rich vivid colors.  Water was rushing through the canyon as it drained the surrounding areas!

Tyler Needs A Special Forever Home  -- Can you help?

I'm sharing this post from +Brown County Humane Society in Indiana about a very special cat who needs a patient loving home.  You may not be able to adopt Tyler, but you CAN spread the message.  Please help this sweet little kitty!!

Here's a link to see this awesome little kitty!!
https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25073602

Will you take a few moments to help Tyler?

Tyler has had a most unusual life for a cat, and not in a good way.  He is counting on you to help him finally find a little kitty normalcy in his life.
 
You see, from the time Tyler was a kitten until he was 3 years old he lived in horrible conditions, where cats were allowed to breed indiscriminately and were pretty much neglected by their caregivers. 

In Nov 2012, the home he was living in was raided and he came to live at the Brown County Humane Society animal shelter.  Here he received the veterinary care he needed and was provided a safe place to live; however, Tyler has struggled.  Because of his early living situation, he was never really socialized to people, so he’s had a hard time adjusting to shelter life. 

He has come a long way and we are proud of him.  Tyler actually enjoys attention now, when he's in his kitty condo. He loves to have his chin scratched and is especially fond of having his  behind scratched. He's still shy outside of his condo, but he's very curious and is eager to learn about playing.  

So far half of Tyler’s life has been in a hoarder’s home and half has been in a shelter.  It’s time Tyler experienced what life should be for a cat – a quiet, loving home with patient people who will let Tyler blossom into a happy cat at his own speed.
 
We’ve done a lot of promoting of Tyler, but no adopter has stepped up.  We are reaching out to you, our caring supporters, and asking you to send this post to everyone you know.  We've had adoptions happen across the country, so don't limit your email list to locals!  The right home is out there for Tyler, we just need your help to find it. 
 
Take a quick look at Tyler's video and then please spread the word.  Tyler needs a home!  You can help!

Photographs and video and are available at www.bchumane.org

+Renee Liggett I can't blame you.  Any shelter that is successful is based on the compassion of their people.  I'm very blessed to be associated with two such awesome shelters.  +Brown County Humane Society  where Tyler is located in Indiana and +Wayside Waifs which is where I volunteer.  When you get ready to adopt a new family member, it will be worth your while to make that 1.5 hr drive!!    Good luck to you Renee!!
