Who is Mr.Frisky?
Mr.Frisky was my first rescue. He was a homeless cat living on the streets. This organization and it's mission are in his honor. He lived to be almost 20 years old.
Uniting the World to Adopt Love Give at their local animal shelter, rescue or sanctuary. Sending money and supplies to shelters in need worldwide, providing pet care information to adopters, fosters, and rescuers, connecting people to shelters, shelters to each other, rescue groups, and their communities through the Adopt Love Give worldwide directory of shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries in over 50 countries (and growing!).
AskMrFrisky has no paid staff. I work a full time job in addition to running this Organization so that I can take in as many pets, fosters, rescues, and fospices as possible. I also care for stray and feral cats, and wildlife. My monthly food and supplies bill is $640, my monthly medication bill for the cats and dogs is $200, and my average yearly Veterinary bills are $7,500 to $15,000.
I am hoping sales of the book I wrote "There's a Scorpion in the Litter Box - Tails of a Crazy Pet Lady" my adventures in animal sheltering and rescue, taking the "unadoptables" from "throwaways" to thriving, will help me continue to send money and supplies to shelters in need and expand this organization's ability to produce more pet care videos and other information to help people engage with their pets and local shelters. The book will soon be available to purchase!
I do NOT charge (never have, never will) shelters, rescues and sanctuaries to be listed, nor to share their needs on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
Who am I?
I am Lauren Greenwood, Founder of AskMrFrisky.org. I have volunteered for and supported animal shelters for over 2 decades. I have cleaned kennels, performed Vet Tech assistance, taught volunteer orientation and pet education in schools and communities, fundraised, fostered, fospiced, and more. At any given time, I have an assortment of animals, usually most with special needs or hospice needs. Thankfully I have very supportive Veterinarians!
