I took my little Kera to be spayed this morning and in Honor Of Amber I placed a Donation of $25 to provide shelter and food for Cats and Kittens in my local area. I know its not much and wish I could do more But I will Keep Amber in my thoughts when the next time comes around that I am able to make another donation. Hugs to you John and Your Family.

Amber has Touched so many people here on TCS and with out ever meeting her in person she became a great friend. A person with great love for all animals and a willing heart to help anyone or anything she could. I know I will remember her kind words when i needed them the most and all her help and advice.

I never knew that until I met Amber. That they accepted newspapers. But she was obsessed with saving and getting newspapers so that every other week she could bring them to several different rescues around here. I thought she was nuts at first. But they really appreciate it. So if you dont have alot of money or none at all thats an easy thing to use.

It's especially useful for bunnies and guinea pigs and animals like that. They can tear it up to make a nest, it helps keep them warm, and has to be changed regularly, so the more the better!

Any ideas? (I feel like a schmuck asking this, but I really have no money. I would donate a million if I could)
Some spare time as a volunteer is a donation. Something they can't put a price on.

I only read the thread about Amber's passing a few minutes ago.
I don't think I ever talked with Amber here, but I have read a number of her posts and she seemed like such a sweet, caring, giving young woman.

There's no rescue organization, humane society or TNR group anywhere near where I live.

But, the lady across the street has two 6 month old...what look to be Maine Coon kittens.
She has no heat in her house and she's using space heaters to keep warm.
She goes without food herself to feed those kittens and can't afford to get the female spayed or the male neutered.
The other neighbor and I take turns buying her dry and canned cat food, ringing her bell and leaving before she sees us.

Tomorrow I'm going to buy the biggest bag of kitten food they sell at the grocery store, and some canned food.
I'm going to ring her bell and give her the food and tell her why I'm doing it.
If she's willing, I'm going to tell her I'll make an appointment to have her male kitten neutered.

We got our income tax refund and I talked to my Husband and he said it was okay with him if I offered to pay for the male to be neutered...we would have only blown the money on something stupid anyway.

If someone as young as Amber can do all she did to try to make a difference in the lives of animals, helping to feed two kittens and neuter one is the least I can do.

Amber set a great example for us all!

this is a lovely way to pay tribute to such a sweet, caring young woman.
I'll be donating to the cat rescue that I got Wiggies from. I keep meaning to do more, and this thread has made me realise that I really just need to go out and do it already!

Since I am not sure which post will be read, I will post here too.
for those that want to donate to an animal shelter in Amber's name, PLEASE do so
for those that want to do something for the baby, with John's advice, we are going to wait a week to see how fast she grows and how she does, and then something will be set up for her.
I will keep you all updated through posts here

Since I don't have a lot of money, I will save all of my old newspapers and towels and whatever else I can get my hands on and donate it to our shelter here in Amber's name. I also added a peace symbol for John and in memory of Amber.
