Teaching Old Dogs New Tricks: Grants Available to Help Senior Dogs

Azalea got a second chance, thanks to a Grey Muzzle grant.

Senior dogs like Azalea benefit from Grey Muzzle grants.

Opening your heart and home to a senior dog is a deeply rewarding experience. Older dogs who have lost their families are especially grateful for a second chance to love and be loved again.”

— Lisa Lunghofer, Ph.D., Executive Director, The Grey Muzzle Organization

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, January 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For old dogs in need of new homes, the adage, “Every dog has its day” has never been truer, as The Grey Muzzle Organization calls for grant applications to fund programs for at-risk senior dogs all around the country.

“We envision a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid,” says Lisa Lunghofer, Ph.D., executive director of The Grey Muzzle Organization. “We’re looking forward to awarding dozens of grants to help thousands of deserving old dogs spend their golden years in loving homes.”

Animal shelters, rescue groups, sanctuaries and other nonprofit organizations whose work includes helping senior dogs are invited to apply for Grey Muzzle grants. Grant applications will be accepted from February 16 – March 16, 2018. Grants typically range from $2,500 to $7,500.

Since it began ten years ago, The Grey Muzzle Organization has awarded more than $1 million in grants to 108 nonprofit organizations in 32 states. These grants provide senior dogs with medical and dental care, adoption, foster and hospice programs, and assistance to prevent them from being surrendered to shelters, among other lifesaving programs.

Citing a survey of Grey Muzzle grantees that reported more people are adopting older dogs, Lunghofer feels the situation for senior dogs has recently improved, but noted, “Many wonderful old dogs are waiting in shelters right now for somebody like you to adopt them.”

“Opening your heart and home to a senior dog is a deeply rewarding experience. Older dogs who have lost their families are especially grateful for a second chance to love and be loved again,” she said.

The dogs aren’t the only ones who are grateful. “We’re very thankful for the support of our donors, who make it possible for Grey Muzzle to fund many worthy groups working hard to save and improve the lives of senior dogs nationwide.”

To donate or learn more about applying for a grant, please visit greymuzzle.org.

How Bankruptcy Lawyers Can Help You Handle the Stress of Your Case

Philadelphia Consumer Bankruptcy Attornies

Bankruptcy is devastating to families, business owners and most people. An attorney that deals with these situations reduces the stress of your case and life.

Helping individuals, business owners and their families get through a bankruptcy with dignity and peace of mind is my goal.”

— Michael A. Cibik, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For some, it might mean the loss of a precious possession, one that may have taken years (perhaps even decades) to create. And for many business owners, even coming close to losing their company can have a devastating impact on their personal life and mental health.

Tips for Managing the Emotional Stress of Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is an excellent solution for honest people who are in tough financial situations. It provides a fresh start, allowing you to move forward with a clean slate. For many people, the actual process of filing for bankruptcy, with its complicated rules and red tape, is easier to handle than the flood of emotions surrounding their situation. Here are 6 tips for managing the emotional stress of bankruptcy.

Honor Your Feelings

You might feel surprised and even overwhelmed by the depth of your feelings when you decide to file for bankruptcy. Some people sink into anxiety and worry, while others try their best to put their emotions aside. This is not necessary.

Instead, honor your feelings by allowing them to flow through you. Notice and accept that you are doing the best for yourself and your family. Reading, relaxing and meditation are just a few common ways to calm your mind without repressing your feelings.

Acknowledge Your Situation

For the vast majority of debtors considering bankruptcy, their current financial difficulty is the result of many factors, the majority of which were outside the debtor’s control. Most people also made one or a few financial mistakes that contributed to the situation.

Write a list of all the factors that contributed to your decision to file for bankruptcy. Make a commitment to yourself not to repeat the same financial mistakes. Consider the factors that weren’t in your control, and realize that without the chain of events, you would likely not be in the financial position that leads to the filing for bankruptcy.

Acknowledge the reality of your situation, and then turn your energy towards a better financial future.

Learn the Facts

Many people face bankruptcy with a great deal of anxiety and fear because they believe in common myths. You might worry that you will lose your home and car, that your employer will hold your bankruptcy against you, or that everyone you know will find out.

Sit down with a trusted bankruptcy attorney and learn the facts that apply to your individual situation. Knowledge is power, and most people are surprised to learn that things are not as dire as they imagined.

Talk to Trusted Loved Ones

While you might not want to announce your bankruptcy to the world, it is important to seek support from those who are closest to you. Bankruptcy is extremely common in today’s world, and you might just find that one or more of your loved ones have gone through it.

You will also come to realize that your worth is not tied to your finances and that the people who matter are truly on your side.

Talk with a trusted friend or a Therapist

In a way, filing for bankruptcy necessarily represents the feeling of a loss in your life. It is important to get past any type of feeling of loss and develop the tools you need for the future. Talking with someone can be a vital part of making sense of how you are feeling, addressing any unnecessary worry, and moving you on to a healthy emotional state and financially healthier place.

Make a Financial Recovery Plan

It is a myth that bankruptcy will prevent you from ever getting credit in the future. In fact, many people start receiving credit offers within one to two months after their bankruptcy is finalized. It is true that you will begin with lower limits, higher interest rates, and possible security deposits, but many people report that they were able to build a healthy financial picture in two years or less.

In meditation or during the quiet moments of your day, begin to visualize yourself as financially secure with a strong credit profile. Then develop a plan of action to reach that goal.

Create a realistic timeline, consider your budget, and set a series of smaller goals for which you can reward yourself. Developing a new plan will get you excited about the future, make the present seem less significant, and help you learn the financial skills you need for a lifetime of success.

Filing for bankruptcy can be an emotional roller coaster, but it is really not necessary to feel that way. Millions of honest people have filed for Bankruptcy with the goal of having a better financial future. Give yourself time and patience, speak with trusted loved ones and focus on the future. Over time, your fears and worry will be replaced with hope and excitement.

ExerciseBikesExpert's Three Major Website Changes

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the first month of 2018 nearing its swift and productive end, the time has come for ExerciseBikesExpert.com to take a step back and present its important improvements for the rest of the year. With 2017 being its most successful year yet, the website plans for even greater things at the moment.

If this were to be described in just one word, that would be ‘novelty’. And the best news is that this concept will be enforced in more than one direction to achieve the best results. Here are the three major website changes that have come with 2018 and will continue to unfold throughout the course of the following months.

• More detailed reviews. This new generation of spinner reviews focuses on showcasing all the pros and cons of an indoor bike so that readers who want to invest in one know exactly what they’re dealing with. Besides staples such as Life Fitness Lifecycle GX, the website also plans to constantly provide its public with detailed accounts of the latest products on the market.

• New contributors. After having successfully welcomed Luke Mitchell to the team, EBE aims to keep the flow of unique content coming by always seeking creative contributors that will add their own personal touch to the page. This makes branching out possible and offers a one-of-a-kind voice to each individual post.

• Improved routine tips and ideas. Most importantly, ExerciseBikesExpert knows the importance of a proper spin bike routine, which is why additional tips and ideas are always being discussed by the team and put into action through posts. Furthermore, the site will also take a new direction into even more other fields, such as diets and catered workouts that don’t necessarily involve spinners.

All in all, it is evident now that the accent this year will be put on novelty. While 2017 was focused on developing what the website was already famous for, the new year is a time for thinking outside the box and testing limits.

Thus, if you’re looking for anything from a spin bike review like that of the Schwinn IC2, the Sole Fitness SB700 or any other model, or if you just want to find out something about new diets or routines, EBE is a sure choice in 2018. With a mix of old, tried and tested staples, together with innovative techniques and gear, the future looks bright for the website.

About Exercise Bikes Expert
Kristin, the site’s founder, started ExerciseBikesExpert.com out of a desire to promote a healthy, workout-based lifestyle that will make people more conscious about their fitness and well-being. Its pages are all centered around offering information about indoor cycling, from spin bike reviews to entire detailed routines that will teach anyone to use them.

And if spinning isn’t your thing, then here you will also find info on weight loss, bodybuilding, muscle endurance exercises and plenty of other topics related to the field of fitness. It’s a website for everyone, from all corners of the world, and it can help you get started on the path towards better living.

($1,125); and one of the Hale & Norcross mine in Virginia City ($1,000). Both are mounted and circa 1885.

Other star lots from the category included a McClellan Gold Mining Company stock certificate (Comstock, Nevada Territory), one of the very earliest Nevada territorial stock certificates, dated 1863 and in excellent condition ($688); and a group of 23 early Arizona topo maps, mostly from mining regions, 80 percent pre-1920 and many from the first survey period of 1895-1912 ($531).

Numismatics and paper currency was highlighted by a collection of Washington quarter coins, with the main collection housed in an album and missing only the 1932-D, 1938 and 1940 dates, plus many duplicates in a backup box ($1,125); and a group of 223 pre-1965 U.S. $1 silver certificate bills, 10 of them either uncirculated or almost uncirculated, the rest circulated ($375).

Native American artifacts were led by a gorgeous Buckskin Plains Indian beaded pipe bag, with a beaded warrior on horseback motif on one side and a twin deer design on the reverse ($875); a corn husk and yarn bag woven by the noted Nez Pierce artist Viola Morris, new and never used ($594); and a vintage Hopi vase (or seed pot), old and well-used, with chips and fading ($625).

Original artwork featured a framed oil painting titled The Forest by William Keith (1838-1911), a Scottish-American painter famous for his California landscapes and associated with Tonalism and the American Barbizon School ($1,250); and an oil on board rendering of snow-covered mountains and trees and a river by Leonard Lopp (Am., 1888-1974), framed, dated 1938 ($875).

A group of 58 pay vouchers for Wisconsin Civil War soldiers killed in battle, most of them marked “Paid” in 1864, for money owed to the soldiers from 1862, with the money going to family members and spouses of the deceased, garnered $562. Also, a two-page handwritten diary of a scout who was performing in the Buffalo Bill Wild West show, dated Jan. 1, 1874, hit $469.

A rare and unusual scrimshaw cup, made from a carved antique horn around 1802 and depicting 18th century British officers in a formation watching a nude solider tied to a cannon carriage while being whipped by three black slaves, signed by artist “N. Spillman”, rose to $1,312. Also, a World War II Marine Corps framed sword and scabbard, the sword 36 inches long, made $687.

A tin advertising sign for Al Furstnow Saddlery – “The Saddle That Made Miles City (Mont.) Famous” – 14 inches by 20 inches, not a copy, breezed to $625. Also, a Triassic Keichousaurus hui reptile fossil discovered embedded into black shale in Guizhou, China, 6 inches by 11 inches, brought $812. The 200 million-year-old species of reptile was just discovered in 1958, in China.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The people of Texas underwent devastation and loss last year as Hurricane Harvey stormed the state. This powerful storm resulted in lives lost, millions of dollars in damages, and people without homes. But as a result of the storm, people came together and helped the relief efforts to clean up the state. Todd Kassal was one of those individuals to rush to aid in the process.

In times of distress, people like Kassal rush to help those in need. Not only do these individuals provide emotional support, but they also assist with cleanups and assisting those get back necessity items from homes.

Kassal, a stockbroker from Miami, Florida, applied his financial means and time to attend to those who needed it the most throughout the state. Despite the miles between Kassal and the point of impact in Texas, he was determined to make a difference for the victims.

After watching what was happening around Texas on the television, Kassal quickly packed multiple trucks and vans with supplies, water, and boxes of canned food. With the help of drivers and movers, Kassal organized the packing and movement of goods and supplies to Texas. It was a long drive, but once Kassal arrived, he knew the effort was worth it.

Taking over 16 hours to get to Texas, Todd Kassal and his crew arrived, stopping only for gas. Coming tired, Kassal decided to get to work and not sleep. The relief groups were extremely appreciative of the gesture.

"The crew and I wanted to get to Texas as fast as possible," explains Kassal. "Here in the state, people's lives are ruined and changed forever. The least we can do is arrive quickly and begin to help the best we can."

When Kassal arrived, all of his supplies, food, and water became divided among the different areas affected by the storm. Every piece of food and drop of water was a valuable asset to the relief efforts.

It's because of Kassal's efforts that he has become recognized for his actions. Many individuals stepped up in the time of need, and Kassal is one of them.

Many cities and government officials in various areas of Texas have begun to extend thanks to these people. Kassal recently received a hand-written thank you from the mayor of one town.

But Kassal did not perform these acts of good deeds because he was seeking attention. He knows the horrible aftermath a nasty storm can bring.

"I am no stranger to the consequences of hurricanes, having gone through the destructive storm of Hurricane Katrina," says Kassal. "Because of my experiences, I wanted to help those people in Texas. I couldn't sit and not do anything after watching what was going on in those areas. I just couldn't do it."

That strong hurricane took everything Kassal owned. Also, he remembers men and women from all over the country coming to his community to assist in the cleanup efforts. Those images will never leave his mind when a storm hits a different part of the nation.

In the future, Todd Kassal will keep a watchful eye on powerful storms that hit the country. The people in his crew to Texas told Kassal they would assist in other cleanup and aid efforts if another storm is ever to hit the coast. Also, Kassal has made friends with these members of the team and people he helped in Texas. He mentions those relationships will last a lifetime.

"This storm caused good people to come together," states Kassal. "Unfortunately, many people were negatively affected. But the storm showed there are good people in this world willing to help."
