A little Help from our friends?

Dear friends and Supporters ❤

As most of you know what we do for the pooches and kitteh’s at Mutanthouse and those in the neighborhood comes out of our own pockets. Now we do get food donations for our animals (thank GOD and our Fairy DOGmother you know who you are) that help immensely but because we have a load of seniors and special needs pooches our vet bill is always up there. This year we have a especially aggressive flea season we tried to combat it with natural means such diatomaceous earth but it has failed miserably and we now have to roll in the big guns. 

Without taking any of our normal vet costs in account the treatment for all our animals for fleas and ticks  runs at 600$ a month . If we include heart worm treatments for everyone and all the other standard cost we are up to about 1000$ a month in vet costs alone. This does not include the stocking up on wound dressings, antibiotics and other medications for emergencies and the fools living around us who refuse to vet their animals.

Right now money is really tight right now at Mutanthouse,  because we had so many unexpected costs in saving Titine and trying to save Little Captain Jack Sparrow, and we could really use some help from you guys. The few donations that we have gotten in the past really helped and any amount counts and makes a difference. So if you can Help Here is the link > https://www.wepay.com/donations/mutanthouse-support-fund

Physical donations like frontline for dogs and cats are also more than welcome and appreciated.

Thank you for your continued interest in our project.

Namaste

Alex ❤

State of the Nation June 5, 2013 very very Long post!

Long time no post, I am well aware and apologise. Things have been quite chaotic here at Mutanthouse but we are working though it. Our financial situation is not the best but it has improved I (Alex) finally received my school funding and Tim has been getting more hours at work. All in all we are only 5 days late on the Mortgage and more money is coming in July which will bring us current.

All in all the past few months have been a challenge My health has been more than wonky, some of our furries had medical emergencies, and we had to take in new residents and some refugees. Once again we had to fight the false allegations of our nemesis across the street( the retched guardian of Poor Axel who we tried to save earlier this year) who has been calling the city and animal control on us claiming anything from that we are collecting trash behind the house to fighting our dogs. We are well aware it is retaliation for making his abuse and neglect of poor Axel Public and while the constant visitations from the law are frustrating they are also unfounded so there are no real consequences just annoyance. We can live with that, and do not regret trying to save his dog nor holding him accountable for his death!

New residents

cats and Kittehs:

In the past few Months we have taken in two more pooches in need and three more kittehs.
The first to Move in was little Oliver a male tuxedo cat who sat in front of Kay and Tim’s door and proclaimed he was moving in. Then there was little Sebastian who Kay found in the Wal-Mart parking lot and the last of the Kittehs to join was Bastet Delilah who like Oliver sat in front of the door for 3 days till we decided that one more won’t kill us. but someone in the cat underworld must be giving out our address because they keep shoeing up 😛

The ballad of Little Captain Jack Sparrow and Titine Atari Starfire Empress of Bahuahua:

This part is both sad and happy so brace yourselves. My daughter called me for help she had been trying to help a little boy puppy that was very ill and dying because his guardians forced him baby food when he had become too weak to suckle. The house the poor Pup lived in was a pestilent hell hole full of faeces and cockroaches. The people living there had 5 dogs, two males and 3 females, who all had puppies because those ignorant idiots refused to have all but one of their dogs spayed and neutered. All the puppies where flea and worm ridden and smelled so bad I almost vomited. From the first littler only one little eight week old female was left over. Overall she seemed to be in Ok shape although her belly was grossly extended due to parasite infestation. The second litter, to which the little male puppy belonged, were all four weeks old. All of them where under weight and parasite ridden but the little male was by far the worst off. I (Alex) decided to take him to our vet and whilst driving decided that he was not going to go back there if he would survive. We noticed that the little guy had only one eye and taking that for inspiration we named him Captain Jack Sparrow hoping that the Pirate’s luck in dodging death would rub off on the little guy. It seemed for a little while that he would make it but in the end the worm infestation was too severe and we lost him. I was devastated because he had fought so hard to live. We took Jack home and buried him under our Chinese plum. Although you where just with us for a few hours we love you little jack may you sail the sea of souls happily till we meet again I salute you <3.

We went back to the house of horror to update his former family and to deworm the remaining puppies. I also brought a shot for the little girl because her guardian said that she would not afford to give her her shots when I explained how dangerous Parvo was the woman told me she had had a previous littler that had died from it in the house. Yet she was giving me attitude and was not willing to let the puppy get her shots. 50$ later the pup was mine and we named her Titine Atari Starfire. In two weeks we will be deworming the remaining pups of horror house and will try to find them homes if possible . We are not sure how far these people will let us help though because they waver between threats and greed.

Meet Titine :

Titine

The Little girl has recovered well from her worm infestation and is growing like a weed. Titine is very popular of course Momma Moo has taken her under her wing and is (S)mothering her 😉 Wifi is completely in love with her and engages in long howl sessions. And she loves Her auntie Kay and Uncle Tim.

Wifi the magnificent:

As you can see in the Picture Our WiFi has grown up to be a strong young man. His problems with gait and running have vanished and he recovered well from his operation. In July he will be undergoing “the Procedure”. We will keep you updated.Our WiFi is very dramatic in nature and very vocal which got him the nick name Dennis Rodman of dogs :p We believe that if he where not a Dog he would be a drag queen with his own show in Hollywood. His favorite pastimes are eating, which is the reason of one of his other nicknames chubby or Chubbo. His best friends are Bhaaloo and Malcolm who he adores and little Titine is the apple of his eye.

Amyrah the Survivour:

Another success story is our Amyrah remember the little shy girl who was afraid of her own shadow well now she is a happy well adjusted girl who is part of the young pack. We are so happy she has found her way out of her shell 😀

The refugees:

Refugees2

We have taken in some refugees at Mutanthouse My daughter Morgaine and her fiance Franky were evicted from their home. We decided to let them stay here with my grand furries Misty, Molly,Roy,Tequila and Garfield until things get better. because they are not vegans ands also are not currently interested in becoming part of the project there status here is defined as refugees 😉

The amazing Grand Furries:

The garden:

This years garden is very simple no raised beds no real structure but it is a garden and out first step into that venture, We have tomatoes,bell peppers,peppers, watermelons and squash. We have 2 fig trees , 2 banana trees and one pair tree. Our boison berries yelded great this year and we are expanding 🙂

As for myself My health has not been the best so I am trying to go completely raw vegan and want to see if I cannot fix my situation or at least massively improve it.One thing I am planning is to get a membership at the local YCWA so I can go swimming and get some exercise. Tim and I found a Farmers market and a family of farmers who are cutting us great deals so suddenly Raw seems achievable.  I will be documenting my progress on on a Facebook page called Reclaiming Life >

help 2

Dear friends and supporters we are in trouble here at Mutanthouse. We are 60 days past due on or mortgage. How did we get here? Well a series of very unfortunate events. As you know I (Alex) have been out of work for four years but have been managing by the skin of my teeth, odd jobs , selling my furniture , artwork, Student loans and the likes.
Well the last two months we had a lot of unexpected vet costs and Kay and Tim where evicted from the apartment they were renting across the street. The plan was to fix up the house and then transfer them over but fate wanted it otherwise.

The cleanup and making habitable of some of the rooms cut further into our budget but we thought we would be ok because My (Alex) tax return was going to come in and so was Kay and Tim’s. Then Tim’s place of employment shut down for renovation because he is hourly and not salaried this means two weeks’ worth of pay are not coming in. But we still thought it would be tight but ok because of the tax return – Wrong!

Well the IRs decided to audit my tax return which means that the money will come in god knows when. My scholarship money won’t be here until 4 more weeks by then we will be 3 months past due and they will foreclose on us. The total that we owe them to date is $1342.83 we have $715 of that together which would be one month’s worth plus late fee, but here is the kicker they refuse to take it! They want all or nothing; basically it seems to us that they want our house – but we are not dead yet.

The amount we need is $627.83 we will try anything we can to get the money together but if any of you can contribute and donate to this Wepay I just set up > https://www.wepay.com/donations/save-mutanthouse < we would be more than thankful. In 4 more weeks we will be up and running without a problem but right now everything seems to be out of whack. If you can help please do we are so close to making this place a reality and a benefit to so many animals and people…we do not want to have to give up so close to our goal.
Thank you all for your continued support

Namaste
Alex

Greetings Fans and supporters and Planet.

Mutanthouse is in flux, chaos and transformation. In a way Tim and Kay’s eviction from the apartment we rented across the street was the kick in the tuches we needed to get in gear. As is Kay and Tim and their furries will be moving into the main house in six days and we have been trying to make it as liveable as possible. At the moment we are somewhat monetarily challenged because my school funds have come in yet, Tim’s hours at work have been cut to almost half and we used our emergency budget to try to save poor Axel the Parvo puppy.

transform-logo

Despite our challenges we are confident that 2013 is going to be the year of big positive transformation at Mutanthouse.
Within the next 5 weeks we intend on moving me down stairs, Moving Kay and Tim upstairs, having pluming fixed, Creating and planting the first part of our vegetable garden, painting the face of the house blue , prettying up the front yard, finally moving Lucky and Burt Burt inside… We will be posting Pictures and keeping you updated.

Dear Mutanthouse supporters things at Mutanthouse are in total Chaos.
Kay and Tim are getting evicted from their apartment across the street which means I need to let them move in before the house is anywhere near ready for 7 more dog and 4 more cats. Why?- because the handy man apparently was afraid of our Stella who could not hurt a fly and refused to work there 😦 so the land lord pretended not to remember that Kay and Tim had dogs and claimed breach of contract.

As is we have 14 more days to pull this all off and it could have not come at a worse time because my funds ran out last month and I will not be getting any more until March when my scholarship and student loans come in. We are in trouble at this point, my tax return was delayed due to new government policy which was supposed to breach the divide until the school funds hit, and I used up all my emergency funds trying to save poor little Axel the Parvo puppy so were in quite a pickle right now 😛

It is basically total chaos but we have no other choice but to proceed the best as we can and try to ride out these less than stellar days ahead till things get better.
While I can be late on one Mortgage Payment (because I have been current until now) we do have an electric bill of 150 coming in and will have to buy a door to put in between my half of the house and Kay and Tim’s to avoid any doggy fights.

We need to repair the busted pluming, which I had not fixed since it broke again last year (we wanted to wait till we gut the bathroom first to cut costs). I had been using the shower at the apartment but now we need to fix it all ASAP 😡

So right now we could use any monetary donation amount you are able to part with to get us over this rough patch. If you live near us we the following in physical donations would be amazing help > building materials such as bricks, wood, old windows (many of ours are busted), old solid doors, heat treated wood pallets, we need crate bottoms to repair some of our crates and are always thankful for old blankets and towels. we need fence pieces to create spate play areas and any power tools, paint, tiles , ect you can part with …

Here is our donation link thank you for your continued support ❤

Amyrah needs your help

As many of you know Kay and Alex saved two dogs from the dog fighting scum who lived next door and then got arrested. Alex took in Bhaaloo and Kay took in little momma, who we renamed Amyrah.

Both Pooches where obviously abused. Bhaaloo seemed to have recovered better from it then poor Amyrah she was so timid, terrified of men and scared of her own Shadow.

( poor Little Sad Amyrah before we rescued her 😦 )

As you guys might remember the fool who owned her prior had all his dogs chained to trees without shelter and often without food or water. At some point he put out one oil barrel for all four dogs that was never used by any of them because it had the tendency to roll down the hill and he never bothered to retrieve it.
(the Barrel 😡 )

Kay started feeding the pooches because we could not look at them every day and watch them suffer.Then I (Alex)organized dog houses for them as part of our give a pooch house program.

Two months went by where we had to watch the pooches miserable little lives, Amyrah’s chain was far too big for her and she would drag it behind her like the ball and chain of death. She was terrified of it so she would move slowly because she hated the sound it made.
Then Mario was arrested and we deliberated long what could be done …As you know Bhaaloo went to live with Me (Alex) and Amyrah first moved into one of our outside pens.

Slowly she warmed up to Kay, but it was a very painful process. Poor Amyrah was terrified and any wrong move could send her to crawl into her doghouse 😦

A few days before Halloween We decided to bring her into the house because there was talk of idiots targeting Pitbulls on Halloween and we did not want to take a chance that the little girl could get hurt.
Amyrah was so grateful and happy and she got on so well with Kay and Tim’s cats that they decided to keep her inside permanently. She has not been integrated into their pack yet but we are working on it 🙂

(taking Walks is fun- Amyrah discovers the world beyond the chain )

(cuddling with Momma on the sofa )

(happy baby learns to Smile )

At this point she is trusting and stable enough that we can finally take her to our vet. The last 2 months however have depleted our veterinary budget and we are hoping that maybe some of you can help us with her upcoming vet bill she will need to get a full physical including heartworm test and her shots.
We are thinking everything will run around $150-200. If you could contribute toward this we would be more than thankful as you know we are not a non profit yet and 99% is coming out of our own pockets.

Any amount is appreciated no matter how small.

Please help us protect the Mutanthouse Pooches from being poisoned!

Dear friends and supporters,
Here is a little update on what is happening right now at Mutanthouse.

We are currently having serious problems with some of our neighbours. These neighbours are targeting our dogs and we believe that Jubilee‘s illness, Luna’s death this year and Inara’s in 2009 are closely connected to their dealings. Our property is large and it is not always easy to detect possible poisoned or rotten food they throw over the fence before our pooches get to it. We desperately need to protect our animals and need to repair the fences and create a safe playground these people cannot breach. For this we want to seal off the middle part of the property with an 11 foot privacy fence, put in artificial turf so we can monitor and detect anything out of the ordinary. Right now our funds are totally maxed out, I (Alex) am funding the bulk of the project and my funds are going to run out in January.
So we would be happy for any help we can receive, if you have unwanted chain link and wooden privacy fences (6 feet or 11 feet high ) , we would be happy recipients , if you are able to donate funds to the cause there is a link here >
http://mutanthouseproject.chipin.com/please-help-us-protect-the-mutanthouse-pooches-from-being-poisoned

On a more positive note:

Little Wifi is doing really well he is going to the doctor on Friday to get his stitches removed and will get his next set of shots on the 30th. He is growing everyday and outgrowing his cloths seemingly every time we look at him 😉 He is now able to regulate his own body temp. But we are still keeping him extra warm 🙂

Little momma made the transition into the inside and is doing very well she also finally has her new name > Amyrah 😀 we will be barging her to the vet around the 30th for a general check-up , heartworm test ect; once we have the funds together.

Bhaaloo who as you see in all the videos is doing phenomenal, he and Zoe are inseparable and he is slowly learning to curb his energy somewhat. He will be going to the vet with Amyrah around the 30th for a check-up where he will be receiving his booster shots and will be checked for heart worms.

Our Moo who is heartworm positive 😦 will hopefully receive her treatment in January as soon as we can come up with the funds right now she is on slow treatment to at least minimise the damage.

Cassiopeia is now a full member of the Mew crew and has been fully accepted and has integrated well 😀 For a while she was very grumpy beating up on the boys who wanted to cuddle her, but she now gets along with everyone which warms our hearts 🙂

In the next weeks our vet costs are going to rise again and we would be very thankful for any help any of you could give us. If you would like to donate to our veterinary fund to help us keep all our elderly and special needs dog vetted and up to date you can find it here >
http://mutanthouseproject.chipin.com/mutanthouse-veterinary-fund

Or to little WiFi’s recovery fund >
http://mutanthouseproject.chipin.com/help-wifi-the-puppy

We are thankful for any donation no matter how small…

If you have unwanted items you would like to donate to us we would be very thankful We need Dog and cat food, blankets toys, treats, cat little , scratch trees , building material , dog houses, fencing and netting , dog and cat care products are always very welcome and thankfully accepted. There are a lot of backyard dogs with no shelter in this neighbourhood so doghouses will provide them with better living conditions.
