Sierra Wildlife Rescue Hosting a Rehabbing Wildlife Class in January

Start the New Year by learning more about all of your wild neighbors, and  how to rehabilitate orphaned or injured wildlife, including rabbits, squirrels, foxes, skunk babies, fawns, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, hawks, owls and numerous species of songbirds and other birds.  Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s January class, Are You Ready to Rehab?, will be held on January 19 from 10:00 a.m. – noon. It will introduce you to what rehabbing wildlife is all about, with examples of rehabbing a variety of mammals and birds.

If you become interested in rehabbing, you can follow up with classes on specific species, taught by experienced rehabbers, beginning in February.  No prior experience is necessary. You will need to attend one two-hour class, taught by an experienced rehabber, and then be given hands-on training by a mentor for as long as you need.

All that’s required is love and concern for animals and the willingness to learn.  SWR supplies all necessary formulas and medications, and you can be reimbursed for any other supplies needed. You will find that rehabbing wild babies is more fulfilling and exciting than you can imagine!

All classes are held at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Rd, Placerville.  Parking is limited, so please make reservations by contacting Barbara Barker at 530-621-2650, or at bsb@d-web.com.  Classes are free to SWR Members; a $5.00 donation is requested from the general public.

Local Business Steps Up to Help Families of Sandy Hook

Owners of The Dailey Method of Folsom and Roseville are spearheading a weeklong fundraising effort for the families affected by the tragedy in Newtown, CT.

Beginning Saturday, December 22nd, students and teachers will kick off the “New Hope, New Year for Newtown” campaign at the Roseville location, starting with the first two classes of the day, at 7:15a.m. and 8:40a.m. All of the money collected will be sent to the memorial fund at Newtown Savings Bank, administered by the United Way to assist families with funeral expense, counseling and other support services.

“All of our students have felt a sense of loss and sorrow. It’s something we couldn’t get out of our minds and we knew we had to take action,” said co-owner Stacey Armijo. She went on to say, “we know the Newtown families will need long term support and that’s what we want to provide.”

The Dailey Method owners have spearheaded other charitable campaigns, such as a diaper drive to support a local non-profits agency. “Our clientele is incredibly generous and we know they’ll give what they can. From nickels to dollars, anyone can make a difference,” Armijo added.

About the Dailey Method of Folsom and Roseville:
Stacey Armijo, the first franchisee of The Dailey Method, opened in 2009, in the midst of the recession. Despite consumer cutbacks, the studio has grown and in October 2012, Armijo opened a studio in Folsom, and brought in partner and co-owner Sandra Lemos. Both Armijo and Lemos own and operate the two studios, and maintain that further expansion plans are a distinct future possibility.

The Dailey Method is a fitness-focused barre workout. It has grown into an international phenomenon with 46 locations globally due to its passionate and loyal following amongst its clientele. Visit thedaileymethod.com to find out more about studios in your area. The Roseville studio is located at 1611 Lead Hill Blvd., Roseville, 916.783.8367.

PUPPIES IN TRAINING GET NEW HOME JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Guide Dogs for the Blind is delivering 16 puppies to very special homes in time for the Holidays.  These area families will raise the puppies and begin preliminary training to usher them toward their ultimate goal, becoming a Guide Dog.

“These volunteers are giving such a big gift by raising these special dogs,” says Jim Russell, Community Field Representative from Guide Dogs for the Blind.  “We’re delivering 11 this weekend and delivered five last weekend to families who will raise and train these pups. It reminds you what the holidays are all about – giving and sharing.”

Volunteer families raise puppies from age eight weeks to 15 months, when they can enter Guide Dog training. During this time, families are responsible for providing their puppies with a well-rounded, socialized and nurturing environment.

“These families give back the dog at 15 months, but their gift is repaid tenfold when they get to see their dog united with a person who can benefit from their unique training and abilities,” says Russell.  “Seeing the difference these dogs make in people’s lives really completes the circle. That’s the gift of the program.”

With 900 puppies needing raiser homes every year, Puppy Raisers are a critical part of producing highly trained Guide Dogs and other service dogs. To support the puppy raisers, Guide Dogs for the Blind offers a comprehensive puppy raising manual, organized training and socialization through meetings with other local puppy raising clubs, as well as staff that offer training and problem solving for the pups and their raisers. The cost of training and veterinary care is completely covered by Guide Dogs for the Blind.

“This is really a special sight to behold, these precious little puppies handed over to their new families during the holidays,” says Russell. “So much joy comes from each puppy.”

People interested in Puppy Raising should contact the Puppy Raising department at Guide Dogs for the Blind for information at 800-295-4050.  Locally they can contact Stanislaus PAWS (Puppies Assisting With Sight) Puppy Club leader Carrie Mesches at 209-345-9255, or Community Field Representative Jim Russell at 209-669-7657. There are no fees and no obligation to become a Puppy Raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

About Guide Dogs for the Blind:
Guide Dogs for the Blind provides enhanced mobility to qualified individuals through partnership with dogs whose unique skills are developed and nurtured by dedicated volunteers and a professional staff. Established in 1942, GDB is the largest Guide Dog school in the country, and continues its dedication to quality student training services and extensive follow-up support for graduates. Their programs are made possible through the teamwork of staff, volunteers and generous donors. GDB receives no government funds.

Winter Music Festival Benefiting The Gathering Inn and Gold Country Wildlife Rescue

The 2nd annual charity event benefiting The Gathering Inn and Gold Country Wildlife Rescue will be held on Saturday, December 8th. This event will be held at the Blue Goose Event Center, 3350 Taylor Road, in Loomis. Doors open at 6p.m., and the show is from 6:30 to 11p.m.

Tickets are $25.00, and kids under 10 get in free! This is a family friendly event. Tickets to the event can be purchased at bethechange.cc/tickets.html, or by purchasing event tickets at The Blue Goose Produce Store prior to the event.

Opening the show are special guests that have been rescued by Gold Country Wildlife that include Owls, Falcons, Hawks and a magnificent Bald Eagle. This is an educational show that allows you to get up close and personal with these amazing birds. If you have children, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them to learn about these amazing creatures, and how they have to adapt to life with us.

The music line-up is one that you will not want to miss! The bands performing are headliners in their own right, and the All-Star Grand Finale is one that will go down in history. First up is the nationally renowned “Garratt Wilkin and the Naked Parrots,” an acoustical version of “Garrett Wilkin and The Parrott Heads” with all the main members. “Garratt Wilkin and the Parrot Heads“ is the number one Jimmy Buffett tribute band in the United States and is a fantastic show.

Next up is the “Mr. December Band”, a hard-hitting local blues band with powerful original material founded by Jimmy Papastathis and Dana Moret. Dana’s vocals have been compared to greats that include Janis Joplin and Lucinda Williams. This is one band that will have you on your feet.

Closing the night is an All-Star Grand Finale performance with a line-up of world-class musicians that include Steve Price and Larry Antonino of “Pablo Cruise”; Frank Hannon of “TESLA”; Randy Scoles of “Ronnie Montrose Band”; Jimmy Papastathis and Dana Moret of “Mr. December”; John Morris of “Gamma”; Garrett Wilkin, Dean Everett, Rick Turnage and Ellen Range of “The Parrott Heads”.

This performance will include a special tribute to Trans-Siberian Orchestra for some real big hair Christmas Rock & Roll!

There will be food by Billie Bones BBQ, soft drinks, beer, wine and cocktails for purchase, fabulous raffle items that will make wonderful holiday presents, and an autographed Guitar auction.

A Fender Squire-Strat Guitar with amp and stand has been autographed by The Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald, Buddy Guy, all members of WAR and The Turtles.  This same guitar (and 15 others like it) sold at auction for $7,500.00 at The B.R Cohn Fall Music Festival in October of this year.

There are many ways you can help these very honorable organizations that use 100% of all donations directly to help homeless families and help save the lives of helpless animals.  By supporting this event, you are allowing these organizations to sustain operations in these challenging times.

With more and more people finding themselves on the street these days, it is easy to overlook how blessed we are. Both The Gathering Inn and Gold Country Wildlife Rescue work tirelessly everyday. These charities are not government funded, they rely on the generosity of all of us to make their work possible.

Raley’s Food For Families holiday bag program doubles customers’ charitable giving by offering a $10 bag of wholesome, nonperishable and fresh food valued at more than $20 to benefit local food banks. Donors can personally select where they want their donation to go, ensuring that 100% of their contribution will feed the hungry in their neighborhood.

Food For Families began as a holiday food drive in 1986 and since then has raised more than $27 million and more than 17 million pounds of food for the needy, as part of the company's long-time commitment to local communities.
