Grieving owner searching for lost dog

Please circulate the video (linked to title above) to anyone you know in or near Portland, OR to help get Cheena home.

Her owner posted this on Portland Craigslist:

"Please look at Cheena's little YouTube video and pass it on. I just need one person to recognize her and let me know she's OK. It is hard to be without her after ten years spent together."

Just one of many probems with Dogs in Danger

Why Donate to DogsInDanger.com

Why indeed?

If you read their own rationale for asking for your donations they state that your donation supports their website. Your donation does not get dogs spayed/neutered or anything else that directly works to truly solve the root of the problem.

The information below was taken from their website and mentions donations being used for current and future animal welfare projects of The Buddy Fund.

They also offer the mysterious statement, we seek new and different ways to address the issue of homeless dogs.

How? When?

"Rescuing" one or 15 dogs at a time does nothing to stem the tide of unwanted dogs being born in the first place.

What are these new and different ways you have in mind to address the issue of homeless dogs?

Aggressive spay/neuter along with education and assistance for low-income pet owners is the only way to seriously address the issue.

Animal lovers have long dreamed of a time when there would be no more homeless pets. DogsInDanger is run by a group of dedicated animal loving folks who want to help do what we can to save urgent dogs in shelters by gaining them invaluable adoption exposure.

DogsinDanger.com is owned and operated by The Buddy Fund, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization dedicated to helping animals in need. DogsInDanger.com and the Buddy Fund have no sources of income other than your donations. The organization was founded in 2004 to aid animals in need, especially dogs. The DogsInDanger.com website is specifically targeted as a last resort for the millions of innocent dogs being killed annually in shelters.

DogsInDanger is the first project of The Buddy Fund and at this time, it is the main focus. We plan additional projects and are currently considering research and white papers on relevant topics, symposiums bringing together leaders in the sheltering community, a television Public Service Announcement and legislative efforts aimed at bettering the condition of companion animals.

Donations will be used to pay for the upkeep, development, technology, and marketing efforts that are required to maintain the complex DogsInDanger.com website. We assume that anyone donating to DogsInDanger (The Buddy Fund, Inc.) is encouraging the website, its reach (through marketing) and validity as a tool to get shelter dogs adopted and raise awareness of this issue. As a result of our efforts, dogs get adopted. One leads to the other and lives are saved.

We implemented a program to reward participating shelters with cash back for every dog listed with DogsInDanger. We have also made donations of over 200 digital cameras to shelters. Additional donations to partner shelters are being considered.

Donations will be used for current and future animal welfare projects of The Buddy Fund, such as the ones mentioned above. We believe that spay/neuter programs are an essential piece of the solution to the homeless pet problem. There are many organizations providing spay/neuter grants and services. We advocate low cost and no cost spay/neuter, however we seek new and different ways to address the issue of homeless dogs.
