A little more about plans...

After I put up the new poster yesterday a number of people indicated that they were ready to start flyering again - which is wonderful!

However, after a year of doing this, we know that we just can't put the flyers up without some careful planning.  The obvious planning is figuring out how many we'll need, and what materials (tape, staples, etc.) we'll have to supply to volunteers.

The other consideration for us is whether or not we will be able to respond to sightings and other inquiries.  While you might think it is better to just get them up as fast as possible, we really do have to consider if, during the week or so after they go up, we'll be able to answer the phone, drop things (like work) at a moment's notice, and just be generally available.  If we're going to be tied up in meetings at work, for instance, then we just create an impossible, frustrating situation.


  1. I hope you receive help from a volunteer for when you are not available to rush for a sighting of Sassafras. Maybe someone could go get her if you can't and hopefully another possibility is that someone could bring her to their home until you are available to get her or in a shelter. Keep checking the shelters and/or rescues.

    I'm still available to monitor through the Internet if you decide it is feasible to put up a camera and a trap. I could contact you as soon as I see her and if we could get a second volunteer that I could contact who is close to your home to then contact you as well or try to get to Sassafras.

    Anything I could try to do to help please let me know. It's wonderful that there are still people devoted to you and Sassafras.

    If you need funds also please let me know.

    All the best. Let's not give up!

  2. hi i get on here periodically to check up on sass. it makes me sick to my stomach each time im on here and I see that you still havent found her. I know that I wouldnt give up to find one of my beloved pets either. i pray that you are reunited!!!! cassy
