Welcome to Big Sunday’s 4th Annual Wild & Woolly April!

These days, we're all faced with a lot of very worrisome, very human issues. So, once again, we thought it might be nice – and perhaps a bit of a relief – to turn our attention to some less human problems. So, we’re dedicating the entire month to helping our four-legged (and winged and gilled) friends! This includes all kinds of opportunities helping, collecting, giving and volunteering!

Some of these projects help animals (e.g., pet rescue) while others help organizations that help animals (habitat restoration) or employ animals (therapeutic riding). And, of course, we'll also be having our annual Cats vs. Dogs Pet Food Collection so that people who are struggling can be sure their pets are well fed. (Team Dog? Email passion@bigsunday.org. Team Cat? Email alondra@bigsunday.org.)

Check out the long – and growing! – list below. (We’ll be updating it once a week, so keep checking back!)

To paraphrase ourselves: Whoever you are, whatever you do, there is some animal who could use your help!

Questions? Email thor@bigsunday.org. Want to help with the pet food collection? Email nicolo@bigsunday.org.

If you’ve taken on or completed one of these projects, please email thor@bigsunday.org and let us know – that way, we can thank you and direct other people to projects that still need their help!

This year’s Wild & Woolly April is dedicated to the memory of our dear pal Melanie Pozez, a great friend to people and animals alike.

Please note that we do not sponsor most of the projects on this list. Rather, we put them out to the Big Sunday community and hope someone sees it who wants to help. Of course, feel free to forward, post on social media, copy and print it wherever you think there are nice animal lovers.

Thanks, as always, for your great generosity of time, talent, spirit and stuff. At Big Sunday, we’re always amazed and moved by how generous so many people can be. Oh, and one more thing – if you enjoy Wild & Woolly April, please remember that Big Sunday has all kinds of great ways to give back throughout the year. We’d love your help! Check us out at www.bigsunday.org or contact info@bigsunday.org to see how you can get involved.

Volunteer withLove On 4 Paws

Why do they take animals to visit? They want to share our animals with other people - especially those who are more vulnerable, lonely, or in pain. Working with the people they visit is rewarding and fun. It is wonderful to see the affection between the patients and the dogs. In the case of some of the children they visit, the Love On 4 Paws program is their first opportunity to touch or play with an animal. Being a Love On 4 Paws volunteer is not always easy. You'll have to deal with hospital requirements (TB tests, written exams), frequent dog baths, yearly dog health exams, LA traffic, etc. But, the joy and happiness you and your wonderful animal can bring to people who are bedridden, in wheelchairs, or isolated from normal companionship is unbelievable!!! Love On 4 Paws volunteers need to be 18 or more years old, and must be able to pass a basic background check. Visit: https://www.loveon4paws.org/volunteer/

Transport Hay for Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation

Volunteer(s) needed to pick up 1-3 bales of hay from Riverside Dr. in Glendale or from Red Barn in Reseda, bag it, then deliver it to West Los Angeles and/or Playa del Rey. Hay and fuel costs will be covered by the Los Angeles rabbit Foundation (unless you want to cover the costs and then get a charitable receipt from the organization). Since traffic is lighter on the weekends, most "hay elves" prefer to pick up hay then--but any day is fine, as long as someone is available to receive the hay. They will work with your schedule. The frequency of each volunteer's hay runs will depend on the number of new hay elves they recruit. They currently have one hay elf doing a weekly or bi-weekly run, depending on demand for the hay. Since the demand has gone up to the point where they need hay weekly, and their primary hay elf needs a break, they need more hay elves. REQUIREMENTS: Driver's License Needed, Must be at least 18, 2-3 hours, Must be 100% reliable. Visit: https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp948339.jsp

If you live in Los Angeles, Orange, or Ventura County, in a coastal community of Santa Barbara County between Goleta and the Ventura County line, or in the southwestern corner of San Bernardino County in Upland, Chino, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville, Apple Valley or Hesperia, consider becoming a Lab Rescue foster parent!

Make Wooden Boxes for Rabbits with Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation

They have a blueprint for the boxes that they'll email to anyone wanting to make them.This would be a super project for a school group, Eagle Scouts, etc. Visit: https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp2719712.jsp

Take Care of Horses at Hanaeleh Horse Rescue

A great way to help is to work with Hanaeleh Horse Rescue's horses on a weekly basis. This option is for the individuals who are able to commit to volunteering once a week. Their trained volunteers come out on Saturday mornings from 8:30am-noon, and all weekly volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. They are currently scheduling orientation training for new volunteers on Saturdays 8:30 to 10:30. Their volunteers learn the ins-and-outs of how the rescue runs. They muck out all of the horse’s stalls, wash and clean their feed bins, salt licks and water containers, and feed the horses. After a volunteer has come out four times, they pair them up with a “buddy” to show how they work with the horses; this way the horses get consistency when they are handled. Please note that volunteers do not ride the horses. NOTE: Volunteering at Hanaeleh does have physical requirements. Some individuals may not feel comfortable and/or aren’t able to meet the rigors of a ranch where the ground is uneven and is on an incline. Additional requirements to volunteer are: Ability to lift 30-40 pounds. (they cart around full muck buckets, hay pellet bags and other heavy items), You will be on your feet for four hours. They have chairs and breaks are welcome, but it’s physical work on your feet. There is a lot of lifting, bending and carrying involved and if you don’t feel comfortable with this, please consider coming out for a tour or a workday instead of regular weekly horse care. They do have a limited number of volunteer spots available for lighter work helping with other chores around the ranch. Please email them for further details. To volunteer, please email: volunteer@hanaeleh.org. Visit: https://www.hanaeleh.org/help-a-horse/volunteer/

Band Birds with Audubon California/ Starr Ranch Sanctuary

Dedicated birders who would like banding experience are invited to apply to become volunteer banders for a MAPS (Mapping Avian Productivity and Survivorship) station at the Starr Ranch Bird Observatory. MAPS is a growing network of hundreds of songbird banding stations in North America run by the Institute for Bird Populations (IBP). Long term banding data from MAPS stations help track changes in populations and migration patterns. In 2005, Audubon California/Starr Ranch Sanctuary became part of an international monitoring network that tracks birds in their wintering grounds, MoSI (Monitoreo de Sobrevivencia Invernal) with stations from Mexico to Columbia (and Starr Ranch!).

Monitor Songbirds with Audubon California/ Starr Ranch Sanctuary

Besides bird banding, Starr Ranch manages other songbird monitoring projects that utilize volunteer citizen scientists who are trained by ornithologists. Monitoring usually targets rare species and habitats such as coastal sage scrub but they also use songbirds as indicators of restoration success and climate change. New monitoring projects help them make decisions on which invasive plant species they will work to control. Below are some current songbird monitoring projects that utilize citizen science volunteers. Songbirds of Starr Ranch Coastal Sage Scrub, Effects of Coastal Sage Scrub Restoration on Songbirds, Effects of the Streambank Weed, Periwinkle, on Songbirds, Songbird Phenology in Coastal Sage Scrub and Riparian Woodlands. If you would like to volunteer or would like to learn more about Starr Ranch songbird monitoring projects, please contact Sandy DeSimone (sdesimone@audubon.org) at 949-858-0309.

Monitor Wildlife with Audubon California/ Starr Ranch Sanctuary

In spring 2004 Audubon California/ Starr Ranch Sanctuary trained volunteers to assist their biologists with a long-term study that examined the effects of artichoke thistle control and coastal sage scrub restoration on small mammals (and songbirds). The goal of this project was to produce estimates of small mammal species composition, richness, diversity, and abundance in their paired restoration and pristine coastal sage scrub monitoring sites as well as over a chronosequence of sites of increasing restoration age. Data collected through 2010 indicated a negative effect of artichoke thistle and a positive effect of restoration, so this small mammal study is currently inactive. Monitoring responses to actions or lack of actions remains the key strategy for resource management in a changing climate. Currently Starr Ranch biologists train citizen science volunteers to help them monitor wildlife that serve as good indicators of habitat quality and help them decide which invasive species they will work to control. These are long term projects that will also aid in detection of shifts in wildlife populations that may be associated with a changing climate. Current wildlife monitoring projects include: Aquatic Vertebrates of Bell Creek (fish, reptiles and amphibians), Perennial Pools of Bell Creek, Effects of the Streambank Weed, Periwinkle, on Small Mammals and Invertebrates, Phenology of Butterflies (and Plants) of Coastal Sage Scrub and Riparian Woodland. If you would like to volunteer with their wildlife monitoring projects, please contact Sandy DeSimone (sdesimone@audubon.org) at 949-858-0309. Visit: https://starrranch.org/volunteer/

Volunteer with Adopt a PIG California

Are you wondering how you can help the rescue effort in CA? You don’t have a lot of money but would like to assist in some way? Do you have extras laying around the house of things you know piggies like and you have no use for them? Maybe you found some horribly ugly blankets deeply discounted at the local thrift store and would like a place to get rid of them? Maybe that igloo dog house that’s never used in the backyard anymore could be picked up and used to keep a piggy warm this winter? We are ALWAYS looking for and have a desperate need for any of the following.. * FOSTER HOMES (long/short term - please request application - home check required) * ADOPTIVE HOMES (permanent placement - please request application - home check required) * TRANSPORT ASSISTANCE (needed all over the state - please leave us a message with current location, type of vehicle available, and max distance willing to travel) * SHELTER/TEMP HOLD VOLUNTEERS (do you live near any shelter or animal control facility and willing to check in on pigs as they come in, take pictures, assess personality and get contact/release date info - pull them when available, possibly hold a day or two or transport to foster/adopter? You don’t need to do all of these things - but if you live near a shelter and willing to be contacted when a pig arrives - please let us know the shelter name, location and how far you are and what you might be able to assist with) * CRATES (any size to assist with transport) * BLANKETS (all sizes, No crocheted style and no electric blankets) * FEED/HAY/CANNED PUMPKIN (contact us direct for pick up or nearest drop off location) * SHELTERS/DOG HOUSES/FENCING MATERIALS (contact us direct for pick up or nearest drop off location) * GIFT CARDS TO FEED STORES/TRACTOR SUPPLY (can be sent to specific rescue or directly to us to be used for placement/transport items needed) * CASH DONATIONS (can be paid direct to a specific rescue, veterinarian, feed store.) If you’d like to be a foster/adoptive home for a pig(s) we’d be incredibly happy to send an application to complete and set up a good time to complete your home check - we can answer any questions you have, find a great match for your home and family, and make sure you have everything you need prior to piggy coming..

Take Care of Horses at Hanaeleh Horse Rescue

A great way to help is to work with Hanaeleh Horse Rescue's horses on a weekly basis. This option is for the individuals who are able to commit to volunteering once a week. Their trained volunteers come out on Saturday mornings from 8:30am-noon, and all weekly volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. They are currently scheduling orientation training for new volunteers on Saturdays 8:30 to 10:30. Their volunteers learn the ins-and-outs of how the rescue runs. They muck out all of the horse’s stalls, wash and clean their feed bins, salt licks and water containers, and feed the horses. After a volunteer has come out four times, they pair them up with a “buddy” to show how they work with the horses; this way the horses get consistency when they are handled. Please note that volunteers do not ride the horses. NOTE: Volunteering at Hanaeleh does have physical requirements. Some individuals may not feel comfortable and/or aren’t able to meet the rigors of a ranch where the ground is uneven and is on an incline. Additional requirements to volunteer are: Ability to lift 30-40 pounds. (they cart around full muck buckets, hay pellet bags and other heavy items), You will be on your feet for four hours. They have chairs and breaks are welcome, but it’s physical work on your feet. There is a lot of lifting, bending and carrying involved and if you don’t feel comfortable with this, please consider coming out for a tour or a workday instead of regular weekly horse care. They do have a limited number of volunteer spots available for lighter work helping with other chores around the ranch. Please email them for further details. To volunteer, please email: volunteer@hanaeleh.org. Visit: https://www.hanaeleh.org/help-a-horse/volunteer/

Take Care of Horses at Hanaeleh Horse Rescue

A great way to help is to work with Hanaeleh Horse Rescue's horses on a weekly basis. This option is for the individuals who are able to commit to volunteering once a week. Their trained volunteers come out on Saturday mornings from 8:30am-noon, and all weekly volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. They are currently scheduling orientation training for new volunteers on Saturdays 8:30 to 10:30. Their volunteers learn the ins-and-outs of how the rescue runs. They muck out all of the horse’s stalls, wash and clean their feed bins, salt licks and water containers, and feed the horses. After a volunteer has come out four times, they pair them up with a “buddy” to show how they work with the horses; this way the horses get consistency when they are handled. Please note that volunteers do not ride the horses. NOTE: Volunteering at Hanaeleh does have physical requirements. Some individuals may not feel comfortable and/or aren’t able to meet the rigors of a ranch where the ground is uneven and is on an incline. Additional requirements to volunteer are: Ability to lift 30-40 pounds. (they cart around full muck buckets, hay pellet bags and other heavy items), You will be on your feet for four hours. They have chairs and breaks are welcome, but it’s physical work on your feet. There is a lot of lifting, bending and carrying involved and if you don’t feel comfortable with this, please consider coming out for a tour or a workday instead of regular weekly horse care. They do have a limited number of volunteer spots available for lighter work helping with other chores around the ranch. Please email them for further details. To volunteer, please email: volunteer@hanaeleh.org. Visit: https://www.hanaeleh.org/help-a-horse/volunteer/

Their trained volunteers come out on Saturday mornings from 8:30am-noon, and all weekly volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. They are currently scheduling orientation training for new volunteers on Saturdays 8:30 to 10:30. Their volunteers learn the ins-and-outs of how the rescue runs. They muck out all of the horse’s stalls, wash and clean their feed bins, salt licks and water containers, and feed the horses. After a volunteer has come out four times, they pair them up with a “buddy” to show how they work with the horses; this way the horses get consistency when they are handled. Please note that volunteers do not ride the horses. NOTE: Volunteering at Hanaeleh does have physical requirements. Some individuals may not feel comfortable and/or aren’t able to meet the rigors of a ranch where the ground is uneven and is on an incline. Additional requirements to volunteer are: Ability to lift 30-40 pounds. (they cart around full muck buckets, hay pellet bags and other heavy items), You will be on your feet for four hours. They have chairs and breaks are welcome, but it’s physical work on your feet. There is a lot of lifting, bending and carrying involved and if you don’t feel comfortable with this, please consider coming out for a tour or a workday instead of regular weekly horse care. They do have a limited number of volunteer spots available for lighter work helping with other chores around the ranch. Please email them for further details. To volunteer, please email: volunteer@hanaeleh.org. Visit: https://www.hanaeleh.org/help-a-horse/volunteer/

Sponsor a Special Needs Dog at The Brittany Foundation

Sponsoring these dogs is a great way to offer direct help to their special needs pups, even if you can't adopt right now. To make a one-time or recurring monthly donation in support of these dogs please visit their website. Visit: http://www.brittanyfoundationonline.org/specialneeds.html

Donate to Support PAWS/LA

PAWS/LA is dedicated to preserving the human-animal bond for the most vulnerable, disenfranchised pet guardians. More than twenty (20) research studies conducted over the past ten (10) years document the positive correlation between contact with animals and improved emotional outlook and health stability. For impoverished pet guardians the additional expense of caring for their companion animals is a burden they are only able to bear at a great personal price. In order to provide for their cherished companions, particularly in emergency situations, they often sacrifice their own medicine, food and other essential needs. This usually provides only a temporary “solution." PAWS/LA steps in to bridge the gap between pet companionship and relinquishment. Consider these numbers in Los Angeles County: 1 out of every 7.6 residents lives in poverty. Approximately 900,000 pet owners live at or below poverty level.Average annual cost of pet care is $9,000. Cost of pet care is among the top 5 reasons for shelter relinquishments. YOUR DONATION CAN HELP their FAMILIES! Visit: https://www.pawsla.org/why-pawsla.html

Donate to a Miracle Medical Fund to Support Pasadena Humane Society

Sweet Maple arrived at Pasadena Humane in horrible shape. She was covered in ticks with a severely infected laceration across her neck. She was lethargic, feverish, and dehydrated. On top of it all, the poor girl was fighting a painful bacterial infection. They aren't sure how she ended up in this awful state, but they knew that Maple desperately needed their help. Their veterinary team acted quickly, manually removing around 100 ticks from her tiny body. She was then rushed into surgery, where they cleaned and repaired the infected wound on her neck.

Help The Gentle Barn with Healing & Feeding Animals

Spring has arrived, and it's the most expensive time of the year here at The Gentle Barn! Our 200 rescued animals have everything they need (and more!) all year long, but each spring, we take extra measures to ensure that they stay happy and healthy in the coming season. The sheep need shearing, the llamas need haircuts, the horses and donkeys need dental care and vaccinations, the cows and pigs need hoof trims, the horses and cows need fly and sun protection, everyone needs deworming, and the straw in the barns must be replaced with cool sand. On top of all that, each of our animals still needs the same organic grass hay and organic fruits & veggies that keep them nourished and healthy all year long! If you'd like to help, please visit their website and donate. Visit: https://www.gentlebarn.org/donate/hay
