PAWS IS OVERLOADED WITH ANIMALS! HELP! Oct. 21st, 2008 @ 02:05 pm
ladymacbeth6
PAWS takes in over 30,000 animals a year. Yesterday alone we received 54 cats - and only had about 12 adoptions. We need to amp up our adoption rates, now! Spread the word! There are hundreds of beautiful, adoptable cats and dogs at PAWS! Here's just a sample of some of the beautiful animals who need homes. Please, cross-post this and spread the word. The animals need you!

SEE MANY MORE OF OUR ADOPTABLE ANIMALS HERE:
http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/PA235.html



IF YOU CAN FOSTER OR ADOPT AN ANIMAL: Come to the shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) immediately. A staff person or foster care volunteer will be thrilled to help you find the right animal(s) for you to take into safety. Foster care and adoption hours are 11 am to 6 pm every day of the week.



Directions to the shelter are available here: http://phillypaws.org/Directions/default.asp




PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a donor-funded division of the Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Association (PACCA) dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals. Taking in nearly 30,000 animals each year, PAWS is dedicated to making Philadelphia a city in which all healthy and treatable animals are guaranteed a home. Supporting PAWS helps fund lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay and neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other community-based programming, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals. For more information, please visit: www.phillypaws.org.

Animal Control in PHilly Sep. 24th, 2008 @ 11:26 pm
ladymacbeth6

RIght now, there is a lot going on with Animal Control in Philadelphia.  PACCA is in danger of losing their contract with the city, as the health dept has put out an RFP on a contract to start Jan 1 2009, even though PACCA's contract is through June 30, 2009.  Philly PAWS and PACCA have gone leaps and bounds beyond what animal control in philly was doing 5 years ago, and that can't stop. Philly must be No-Kill. There is no lifesaving language in the current RFP, it only calls for "disposal of animals."

Read more here - http://phillypaws.org/savelivesnow/

Join the cause here - http://phillynokill.com/NoKill/Welcome.html

And contact these people, too!  http://www.phila.gov/health/Commissioner/CommissionersOffice.html

Please, the only thing that will save the 30,000+ animals that come through animal control each year are concerned citizens.

Many Mom Cats and Babies at PAWS need Your Help! Aug. 25th, 2008 @ 08:59 am
ladymacbeth6
I'm a volunteer at PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, and I've been looking for more places to get the word out about fostering kittens. PAWS/PACCA gets over 30,000 animals a year and right now we are still battling kitten season and usually have between 25 and 40 litters who need to be fostered or they'll be euthanized due to space. I thought there might be people in this community who'd be interested in fostering - please let me know if you are and i can help you out. This is a post I make a couple times a week with pictures i've taken of every litter of kittens in the building, and i post it on craiglist, myspace, facebook, blogs, and anywhere I can find - please let me know if you know of any other good places i might find philly-area foster parents!

Thanks!

» Fair Trade in Philly (seeking press)
(cross-posted)

Hey all,

I work for a non-profit, Fair Trade organization called Ten Thousand Villages. Basically we work directly with artisans in developing country to ensure that they're getting proper treatment and fair prices for their crafts.

The main reason I'm posting this is because the 1122 Walnut Street store is attempting to become more active with generating interest in the local press.

We're looking to have our store and Fair Trade be the the feature of stories in local newspapers, as well university newspapers. TV and Radio would be great as well, but print seems like a more attainable starting point.

If you know any editors or writers that might be interested, or if you just have any general advice on how I might go about getting this all started, please let me know. This is all pretty new to me and any help would be appreciated!

Take care,
Andy at Ten Thousand Villages
» apartment hunting
hi everyone - my husband and i have decided to move at the end of our lease (mid-july), as we've reached our limit with our apartment complex and management.

if you're living in an apartment in the area (or have a friend who is) and you either love it or hate it, please comment.

our basics - we're looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom of at least 750 sq feet. dishwasher is a must have (my husband has told me that if we again move to a place without a dishwasher, he will refuse to ever wash another dish for me). i would really like a balcony, and we need either lots of closet space or an extra storage area. we'd like to spend under $900, but would be willing to go a bit above that if it was really worthwhile - washer/dryer in unit, etc.

we currently live in secane and would be okay with staying in this area or prospect park/morton/folcroft - but i'd like to move to media or west chester so we're looking there first.

suggestions?

Scoles Withdraws, Endorses Former Vice Admiral Joe Sestak - 2/1/2006


DELAWARE COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY
P.O. Box 473 MEDIA, PA 19063

610-566-6427 (voice) 610-566-6447 (fax) (mailto:DelcoDems@AOL.com) (e-mail)
Clifford E. Wilson

Chairman

PRESS RELEASE
February 1, 2006

Scoles Withdraws, Endorses Former Vice Admiral Joe Sestak

Media … Paul Scoles, Democratic Candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania's
Seventh District, today announced he is withdrawing from the race for Congress
and endorsing Former Vice Admiral Joe Sestak, of Springfield.

Sestak announced his candidacy today at a press conference with Paul Scoles,
Delaware County Democratic Party Chair Cliff Wilson, Party First Vice Chair
Tony Campisi and representatives from the Chester and Montgomery County
Democratic Parties.

Sestak, of Springfield, recently retired from the United States Navy, where
he commanded the USS George Washington battle group in the Indian Ocean in
the War in Afghanistan. He He also served in the Office of the President of
the United States as the Director for Defense Policy on the National Security
Council staff at the White House. In addition to his stellar Naval career,
Sestak has a Masters Degree in Public Administration and a Ph.D. in Political
Economy and Government from Harvard University.

Scoles, who also serves as Chair of the Haverford Democratic Committee and
Vice Chair of the Delaware County Democratic Party, ran against Weldon in 2004
and, in a 90-day campaign, achieved the highest vote percentage ever against
incumbent Republican Curt Weldon. Scoles stepped aside today in order to
unify the Democratic Party behind a candidate with credentials, resources and
roots in the district. "The number one goal of my campaign has been to get Curt
Weldon out of Congress. I have come to the conclusion that the best
candidate to do that is Joe Sestak," said Scoles.

"This is a tremendous political development that offfers us an opportunity
to play a pivotal role in the 2006 campaign to Take Back America," said
Wilson. "I commend Paul Scoles for his decision to put his party ahead of himself,
and I look forward to a vigorous campaign that will most assuredly end in
victory for Joe Sestak - in May and November."

For more information, contact Cliff Wilson at 610-534-2549.

Joseph A. Sestak, Jr.

After graduating from Cardinal O'Hara High School, Joe Sestak entered the
U.S. Naval Academy from his hometown of Springfield, PA, and graduated with the
class of 1974 with a Bachelor of Science degree. He left the naval service
after almost 31 years in January 2006, after having served as a Vice Admiral.

He has served six sea tours with units of the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets

Administration and a Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government from Harvard
University in Cambridge, Mass.

He served as Flag Lieutenant to Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific
Fleet, and on the Joint Staff in the Force Structure Resources and
Assessment Directorate. He also served on the staff of the Chief of Naval Operations
as Head of the Strategy and Concepts Branch and Director of Strategy and
Policy Division. He was then the Director of the Navy Quadrennial Defense Review,
after which he became the first Director of the Navy Operations Group (Deep
Blue). He also served in the Office of the President of the United States as
the Director for Defense Policy on the National Security Council staff at the
White House.

Most recently, he served as Director, Assessment Division/Capability

» We lost our lease! Everything must go!!1!
My landlord is taking me to court next week. It's unlikely that I'm going to be able to hang on to my lease (and to make things worse, I'll probably have to crash at my sister's in South Philly). So what I need are links to landlord/tenant law, or a recommendation for folks who are versed in that sort of thing. I don't expect to get my security deposit back, but I'd like to make sure that things are handled appropriately on their end and that they don't try to bone me with fees and costs associated with turning the apt over (like rehabbing it for the next tenant). Also, how long can I stay there if they're charging me for the place, that sort of thing...


Thanks...

In Delaware County, a chance for diversity

With a $50 million budget and 3,000 employees, Delaware County government ranks as one of the major employers in the Pennsylvania suburbs. But don't kick yourself for not having heard of it.

The Republican organization that has controlled Delaware County Council for 30 years prefers a low profile. Indeed, quiet, status-quo government that doesn't ruffle or roil voters has been a long-term prescription for victory for the GOP. Notably, Republican incumbent Linda Cartisano has already vowed that there will be no county property tax increase in 2006.

Cartisano and running mate John Whelan, are, like most candidates the local GOP puts forward, well qualified. Both have held elective office at the school board and municipal level, respectively. Both now serve in a variety of solicitorships across the county, making them well informed on the nuts and bolts of local government. And both speak capably about carrying on the council's efforts to assist in enhancing urban, eastern Delaware County towns through the Renaissance Program - and to aid the more suburban towns in the county's western part through open-space preservation.

But there's one thing that's forever been lacking on the County Council that only an outsider can fix: diversity. This year, Democratic candidate John Innelli offers a strong choice to voters. He is not only able to take a fresh look at such issues as whether Delaware County needs its own health department but also can serve as a watchdog on spending. With two degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and the last 23 years in securities law, he's well equipped to raise questions. His background puts him well ahead of Democratic running mate Nancy Baulis, a Philadelphia schoolteacher.

The Inquirer endorses LINDA CARTISANO and JOHN INNELLI for Delaware County Council.

Posted on Sun, Oct. 30, 2005
John Innelli and Nancy Baulis

Government works best when it consists of two parties, each with an
incentive to be a watchdog. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Delaware
County is the sole county in Pennsylvania with a one-party government. That
party, the Delaware County Republican Party, has lost touch with the values
of its citizens and runs the county government to perpetuate its sole
interest: self-enrichment at taxpayer expense. It is time to elect as county
council members two individuals who will change the courthouse culture of
entitlement.

This year Delaware County has an operating budget of nearly $500 million
that consists of a social services fund and a county general fund. Social
services includes children and youth, mental health, mental retardation,
drug and alcohol prevention and rehabilitation programs, services for the
aging, and community redevelopment programs. Federal and state funding
provides 97.2 percent of the social services funding.

folks,

any local bars having halloween parties this saturday?
» (No Subject)

I don't work for these guys nor am I affiliated with them in any way but:

If you guys are lookin for a good spook this halloween, you need to go to scareworld.  Me and my girlfriend went last Friday night, and okay GRANTED I'm a big scaredy cat and freak out over any little thing, but THIS....This took the cake, fuck Bates Motel, and fuck JASONS WOODS.  YOu have to go to scare world. It's in Claymont, DE..........and REALLY frickin close to Aston, PA.  I dont know how to direct you but go to their website at  www.scareworld.com

They have like 5 haunted houses and for 12 dollars you choose one, for 20 you pick 3 and for 25 you can go to any 5 of them.

We went to AMYTIVILLE, TERROR in 3D (or was it 4D) , and INSANITY.

AMYTIVILLE was scary...the "monsters" were in your face and jumped at you at every corner.

INSANITY was an indoor maze with FOG everywhere.  We walked in, and after 3 feet got freaked out and asked for the closest exit.  Not too many people make it through the maze and when we were at the exit the group that was in front of us was also outside. The one girl was crying b/c she was so scared.  She was in her 20s.

TERROR in 3D wasn't so scary but it was a lot of fun. THey give you 3d glasses and you walk through the house, theres a couple clowns and such but the cool part of the house was the effects, very colorful and trippy.

So yeah, if you are looking for something scary, and something close... Check it out.  If you've already been there tell me what do you think.

IF you think it sucked, tell me that too.

The only thing that sucked was the lines.  So yeah, there you go.

» Aston, PA - room available
Hello,

My fiance and I currently share an average-sized room in a shared house in Aston, PA. It is $450/month to rent the room, and the landlord is very flexible with lease options. We are currently on a month-to-month lease, but we are moving ASAP and are looking to have someone else here ASAP.

You will share a bathroom with one other person and the kitchen will be shared with two.

We are the 18'8 x 11'10 sized room.

More complete info including floor plans is available at:
http://www.townrental.com/

I can immediately put you in touch with our house manager, who will give you a tour of the house. No pets or smoking are allowed in the house, and the house manager is an older gentleman with a creative vibe. I moved into a shared house situation with my current housemates (except for my fiance) before I became engaged, and they were perfectly respectful.

Utilities are not included, but are split amongst housemates as shared costs, and usually come to $50/per person per month. Cable and high-speed cable internet ARE included in the cost of your rent. Cell phone reception in the room is great.

Please email or reply for more info.

I live in Media, and I need to find a local dentist. Anywhere within, say, 30 miles, including Philly, would be fine.

Ideally, I'd fine one who used lasers rather than a drill. If this isn't possible, just one who knows what he's doing would be great. Any and all recommendations much appreciated, thanks!

A lot of people in philadelphia post about this and I know I find it kind of annoying after a while. I haven't seen it here though.

Anyway, I'm turning 21 in a few short weeks and while I have a few ideas up in the air, nothing is set in stone. I was wondering what the good bars to go to are in the Delco area. My birthday falls on a Friday night, so are there any good places to go then?

Edit: I work at Barnaby's in Havertown...so please, don't suggest that =)

Does anyone know if you can find laws pertaining to fencing or landscaping online? (Specifically for Folcroft.) Supposedly, you can't put up a fence around your property anymore, but I haven't been able to find the actual law- I want to see if there are any exceptions/loopholes/etc. or if we can get around it by putting shrubs up around the yard. I'm not Googlephobic, but every time I've tried to search through Google results, I'm directed to a bunch of crap that applies to businesses or specific court cases.

» Strange cars in Delco
There is some guy in Newtown Square who owns a couple late model Mercury Grand Marquis sedans with extremely silly looking modifications, like fake spinners, a giant wing and tacky gold trim everywhere, on a grandpa car in the middle of suburbia. What gives? Someone I know met the owner and got the impression that he was on a permanant acid trip. For some reason I am not surprised.

Anyone else seen these beasts or see any other unusual cars in the area? I'm not looking for stories about your typical "rice" cars or whatever, I mean stuff that when you mention it to a friend they go, "holy shit! I thought I was the only one who knew about that thing!"

Also pics plz.

My drivers license expired last week.  I don't know where to get it re-newed.  Where's the closest place I can get that done in Secane/Cliffton Heights?

 

Quick response needed!

Much thanks!

Dear Friend,

I'm supporting Josh Richard for Upper Darby Township Council because I
think Josh has the right stance on issues affecting our community. That's why I
think Josh should receive Democracy for America's endorsement.  Democracy for
America (DFA) supports fiscally responsible, socially progressive candidates all
over the country.  One of DFA's main criteria is grassroots support.  You can
help Josh Richard receive DFA's endorsement by recommending Josh on Democracy
for America's website:

Thanks!
