Hi all you Thulani supporters,


Just wanted to give you an update on some exciting news.

We will be bringing in our newest Thulani resident this coming Tuesday. Her
name is Holly and she is coming from the San Luis Obispo Animal Shelter.

She is an 11-12 yr old female that was picked up as a stray, thin,
neglected, but in relatively good and spunky shape.

The exciting news is that Denise Dipaola is going to direct the filming and
creation of a video documenting the entire process from pickup to Holly’s
arrival at the new foster home. Denise is a professional videagrapher and a
long-term member who has created a number of videos for GSRNC, including the
extremely moving one that was shown at the last Gala. And she just adopted
one of the “the three stooges” puppies.

We will begin filming on the way down to pick up Holly on Tuesday morning,
and will continue intermittently for two days.

We will keep you informed of the progress, but for now—exciting times for
the Thulani Program.

All the best,


King George



Thank you for sending the paperwork so quickly.  I decided to call him “King George I” now since he will be treated royally by you folks.  I’ve attached his shelter intake photo.  I guess they wheeled him into the shelter and the brilliant shelter people were too lazy to take him off the cart before they took his picture.  That’s what originally caught my eye.  I called my shelter friend and said “what’s with the German Shepherd on the cart?”

He didn’t have much hope.  I didn’t have much hope but I promised him I would try.  But, Bob – you came through and gave us both hope to carry on – that there is a way to help these old guys.

Every day I would think about his old bones at the shelter on the cold, hard cement.  I can rest easy knowing that from here on out, he will be warm, happy & loved.  I saw his eyes light up when he looked at Bob and gave him his paw.

Give him a big hug for me.  I’ll miss the big guy.




Hi everyone, I just wanted to thank everyone so much for all you did for Marie.  She has settled in nicely and we are to the point that Katie and Marie are allowed together freely with supervision.  So far no more than a slight warning growl.  Marie has taken over Katie’s bed and has decided that this is home.  When we went to the vet on Sunday she pawed at the back door when I tried to put her leash on as if to say “no more, I’m staying here.”  She was very happy when we were back home.  Yesterday was a trip to the groomer.  They said she was a good girl. Attached are a couple post bath photo’s of Marie and one with her and her new sister Katie.  I had a leash on Marie when I first introduced them off lead in case I needed to pull one away quickly.  Katie grabbed the lead from me and starting “walking” Marie around the yard as if to show her all the cool spots.  I wish I could have captured it on video.  It was priceless. Thanks again to everyone that played a part in saving Marie.  She is home now and is fitting in just fine. 🙂 Keep up the good fight.  Another one saved. Sharron
