Save Mutanthouse!

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.

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.

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.

Please help Luna and Hariette get better!

This Month Two of our seniors are having health issues and will be needing veterinary care.
Our Luna who has been with me (Alex) since I rescued her in Berlin in 2001 and Little Harriette our little chi who was left behind by her former family and came to live with us a few months ago. Both girls are 12 years old Luna will be turning 13 in January and Harry had her Birthday this August.

Luna who is heartworm Positive and on medication for it has been losing her usual strong appetite, she is also slowly going blind. We are really worried about the loss of appetite so we will be bringing her to the vet after the weekend.Harriette has had blood in her Stool and needs to go as well.

While both are otherwise perky these signs are not to be ignored and we hope to avoid serious complications by going to the vet early. Because of the extensive vet bills for Jubilee, and the checkups for Malcolm and Ren our till is empty so if you feel you would like to contribute and help us here is the chip in to our veterinary fund

Help save Face !

This is Face

and this is his stupid Guardian Mario!

I used to like Mario until I saw how he treats his dogs. Face lives in a back yard shared with Morgaine. This Back yard has no fence so Face runs free; face also has no shelter and lives totally unprotected by the elements. Sometimes he is fed sometimes not his existence is miserable …

Face has a sister who also belongs to Mario she lives in a small oil barrel and is tied to a tree on a short chain. Of late Face has become aggressive, Kay who is boarding with Morgaine and will be living in one of the apartments ,until her and Tim’s pod is built on the property ,brought Ren out last night and Face attacked her without warning, she is ok but has cuts on her face and head 😦 Today face lunged at me from the bushes until he realised who I was. This cannot keep going on!

We have talked to Mario and he is always apologetic and polite but does absolutely nothing, we are sick of it! something bad is going to happen and someone is going to get hurt , we have kids running around on the property … If we call Animal control these Dogs will be taken and killed and we do not want this either. Right now Mutanthouse is full up with furries and at our absolute maximum capacity until things get better we cannot take Face or his sister who is unsprayed and going into heat (which means puppies are inevitable if we do not do something :P).

This is what we need we need two solid doghouses and fencing so we can build two kennels for face and his sister. We will need 2 tarps to create a roofed area as well. We also would like to start feeding the two because they are not being fed regularly but are struggling with food supply our selves. We want to see if we can get the Mobile vet to come out and give them their shots too because we know Mario has not vetted them 😦 but we do not have the funds to do so and might have to settle for making them comfortable and fed . Regardless of our own struggles we cannot stand blindly and just watch but we also cannot go over our capacity and compromise the life quality of our residents. We need your help! Mario will probably not agree to have Face’s sister spayed, we believe he might be breeding her and selling the pups. So we will have to grit our teeth and do what we can do.

If you are willing to help and can donate the needed items (we really would prefer this!) or would like to make a cash donations > the Face Fund http://mutanthouseproject.chipin.com/the-face-fund-help-get-doghouse-kennel-and-food-for-neglected-dog please do we need all the help we can get High point is flooded with unwanted, neglected and brutalised Furries , the good rescues (like Rufflove rescue > LIKE THEIR PAGE ! http://www.facebook.com/ruffloverescue & Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love LIKE THEIR PAGE ! http://www.facebook.com/GDFRL ) are full up and the shelters around here are executing fur kids on intake! Please help save or at least make life better for the suffering, pass on rescue and foster requests , donate to Rescues not kill shelters and ABOVE ALL SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR FURRIES !

Update and renewed call for assistance with much needed veterinary care !

Hello Alex here , First of all I would like to thank those that have helped with saving our beloved Jubilee , She will make a full recovery , without your help the 1300 vet bill would have been unsurmountable- so thank you again between our 3 sponsors a good third of the bill was taken out of our hands ❤ thank you ❤

Jubilee has beaten the odds and will make a full recovery YAY!

Second I would like to introduce to you all Little Malcolm aka Mal who Kay found abandoned in a rainy parking lot 😦 at 8 weeks he has now become the youngest and newest Mutanthouse Resident . He will be joining Tim and Kay's pod and family unit ❤ Let's greet him properly 😀

Hello Malcolm welcome home 😀

Now to the uncomfortable stuff:P – Sadly we still have a boatload of procedures and follow-up care to deal with , Jubilee will still require medication for the next month and fluids, Kay’s new additions Mal and Ren need shots , Little Miss Harriette has not been feeling to well of late and I would like to have her checked out . Once Tim is down here we can finally transport Moobert to the vet for his much needed shots and his Stella and Sophia will need them too…. for now those are the most pressing issues but we still have some long term medical treatments that will need to be addressed.

winter is coming and Cassiopeia will need to be checked, vetted and finally brought in so we can end her transition from stray to full fledged Housemate. April MoonFlower aka Moo and Luna who are both heart-worm positive will need to go into treatment, Moo has fatty tumours that need to be operated , Moobert , Mooria and Romeo still need to be tested for heart-worm… since I (Alex ) have been doing all this on a very small budget since I lost my job in 2008 and Kay and Tim are just relocating and are not settled in yet we really could need help with all this…we would be thankful for any assistance you can provide no amount is to small.

There are two ways you can help us one call our veterinarian at high point veterinary clinic and say that you would like to make a donation toward our account which is under Alex’s name ( Alexandra von Streer Henderson ) .Telephone number is 336 889 3832 (if you are calling from outside of the U.S 0011 1 336 889 3832 ).

Also physical donations of 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. One of those cases is face who is left outside by his guardian , he runs freely and has attacked both Ren and myself . he is not a bad Dog just Malnourished without a safe place and we would like to build him and his sister who is kept on a chain and lives in an oil barrel doghouses and fencing to protect ourselves and those poor pooches from harm .Please massage us on either

Call for Assistance

Dear friends and supporters of Mutanthouse as you know Mutanthouse is home to a lot of elderly furies from which one Jubilee is ailing from liver and kidney related issues, while she is getting batter the vet costs have become astronomical. Our current budget is slightly limited and we are facing an onslaught of vet costs in the next few months – a heartworm treatment and an operation for April Moonflower aka Moo, Shots and recovery care for Little miss trinity aka Wren, Romeo and Mooria Georgina, need to be tested for heartworm, Stella, Sophia and Moobert Oi all need their shots and it is fleas season so with 27 furies not including the local strays we are trying to assist there is a lot coming. Also although little Hariette teeth have recovered in our care one of them is sadly beyond redemption and will need to be removed. We have still not decided if we shall treat miss Luna for heartworm due to her advanced age but if she remains stable another $400 will be added to the bill..Then we have Cassiopeia our resident stray that we want to being into the house but first have to have evaluated and vetted..The list goes on and on …we would be thankful for any assistance you can provide no amount is to small.
