It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being, and we therefore yield to our neighbors, even to our animal neighbors, the same right as ourselves to inhabit this vast land.

2012: ONE STEP BACKWARD, THREE STEPS FORWARD

dog screen saver for 2012 impact page.jpg

My Darling Theo  received little  financial support in 2012. Due to external environment factors? Or, poor marketing on our part we are unsure - we continued our work of influencing behavioral change in the evolving relationship between humans, animals and the environment by publishing Animal imagery Magazine, developing the Neighborhood Pet Registry, working with micro-volunteer organizations and building relationships in the corporate community across the US and the UK who feel as we do that animals and children matter. We received just under $5,020.00 in financial support. Disappointed but not deterred we took a closer look at our mission, programs, short and long term objectives, put our marketing and corporate partnership plans on hold and paused for a moment to consider our position. You confirmed what we believe: our vision is unique, our future looks bright and our perspective is relevant to the fight against animal abuse, environmental disinterest and child neglect. Despite our lack of resources, our commitment to ensure that children and animals have a voice that is heard and have rights which are protected continue. We are a new organization and all volunteer. Our approach to finding solutions incorporates history, research, technology and cultural traditions which provide new opportunities for the way people interact with animals the environment  via  Humane Education publications for adults and the NexGen - our most precious resource.
