Welcome to Big Sunday’s 1st Wild & Woolly April!

For the past year, we’ve all been faced with a lot of very worrisome, very human issues: a pandemic, a tanking economy, racial equity, and political division for starters. Now that we’ve hit the one-year mark, we thought it might be nice – and perhaps a bit of a relief – to turn our attention to some less human problems. Specifically, we’re dedicating the month to our four-legged (and winged and gilled) friends.

As you can see, we’ll be hosting and promoting all kinds of projects to help all kinds of animals all month long. This will include all kinds of opportunities helping, collecting, giving and even some in-person volunteering!

Some of these projects help animals (e.g., pet rescue) while others help organizations that help animals (habitat restoration) or use animals (therapeutic riding). We’ll also be having a special month-long collection of pet food so that people who are struggling can be sure that their pets are well fed.

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 beenish@bigsunday.org.

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

One other thing: At Big Sunday, we’re doing our best to find ways to help – because there’ a greater need for it now than ever – but our volunteers’ safety is a top priority. To this extent, we’re promoting the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and local health department guidelines for Covid-19. This is not only for your safety, but for others who want to help as well. Unless otherwise states, volunteers must wear masks and also maintain six (6) feet of distance. And Volunteers must also follow any other safety protocols of our nonprofit partners. We encourage volunteering, however, please note that you do so at your own risk. Participation confirms you hold Big Sunday and our nonprofit partners harmless to any claims stemming from this activity. (When applicable, you will be asked to sign a waiver.) Thanks for understanding.

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. (You can’t believe how busy the fall will be!) We’d love your help! Check us out at www.bigsunday.org or contact info@bigsunday.org to see how you can get involved.

Sponsor a Sloth Crossing Rope

The Sloth Conservation Foundation (SloCo) is a registered non-profit organisation dedicated to saving sloths in the wild through research and conservation initiatives. Founded on the idea that every single person has the ability to make a positive difference, the Sloth Conservation Foundation aims to stimulate progressive change through the education of local communities and lobbying for change at a government level. Without a natural or artificial canopy bridge the only way for a sloth to cross a road is by crawling, which takes a lot of time and energy and leaves them very vulnerable to traffic collisions, dog attacks and human disturbance. They are constructing specialised ‘sloth crossing’ canopy bridges to make it easier for sloths to travel across roads and between forest fragments in urban areas. This donation will buy the raw materials needed to construct a full single-rope canopy bridge to help sloths travel safely. If you sponsor a Sloth Crossing then they will install a personalized wooden plaque next to the bridge engraved with a name of your choice (this would make a fantastic gift for any sloth lover)!

Become a Foster Parent for the Brittany Foundation

Are you interested in having a dog, but maybe can't afford it or can't commit to forever? Consider becoming a foster home. As a foster parent, you will know the dog better than anyone, and you can provide valuable information to help place the dog. By fostering, you'll not only experience the joys of living with a dog, you'll be helping a Brittany Foundation dog find his or her perfect permanent home. Dogs in foster care still belong to The Brittany Foundation, so they provide food and veterinary care while the dog remains up for adoption. Since the dog remains available for adoption, foster homes need to be local to the Santa Clarita or San Fernando Valley, to make transportation to adoption events feasible.

Sponsor a Dog at the Brittany Foundation

Sponsoring a dog means that you contribute to a particular dog's care at the Brittany Foundation ranch. For a donation of $10.00 to $15.00 per month, your sponsorship helps defray our costs of caring for a dog. This is a great way for people who can't provide a home to a dog to still care for and help a dog thrive. Visit their website to sponsor.

Lend a Ranch Hand at the Brittany Foundation

Volunteering is a great way to offer direct help to our dogs. You get to see first-hand the difference you're making.

Dog walking, cleaning kennels, playing with the dogs, grooming, handyman jobs, and lots of other tasks need to be done daily. Contact Nancy at brittany_dogs@yahoo.com if you'd like to help!

The Sloth Conservation Foundation (SloCo) is a registered non-profit organisation dedicated to saving sloths in the wild through research and conservation initiatives. Founded on the idea that every single person has the ability to make a positive difference, the Sloth Conservation Foundation aims to stimulate progressive change through the education of local communities and lobbying for change at a government level. Without a natural or artificial canopy bridge the only way for a sloth to cross a road is by crawling, which takes a lot of time and energy and leaves them very vulnerable to traffic collisions, dog attacks and human disturbance. They are constructing specialised ‘sloth crossing’ canopy bridges to make it easier for sloths to travel across roads and between forest fragments in urban areas. This donation will buy the raw materials needed to construct a full single-rope canopy bridge to help sloths travel safely. If you sponsor a Sloth Crossing then they will install a personalized wooden plaque next to the bridge engraved with a name of your choice (this would make a fantastic gift for any sloth lover)!

Become a Foster Parent for the Brittany Foundation

Are you interested in having a dog, but maybe can't afford it or can't commit to forever? Consider becoming a foster home. As a foster parent, you will know the dog better than anyone, and you can provide valuable information to help place the dog. By fostering, you'll not only experience the joys of living with a dog, you'll be helping a Brittany Foundation dog find his or her perfect permanent home.

Since the dog remains available for adoption, foster homes need to be local to the Santa Clarita or San Fernando Valley, to make transportation to adoption events feasible.

Sponsor a Dog at the Brittany Foundation

Sponsoring a dog means that you contribute to a particular dog's care at the Brittany Foundation ranch. For a donation of $10.00 to $15.00 per month, your sponsorship helps defray our costs of caring for a dog. This is a great way for people who can't provide a home to a dog to still care for and help a dog thrive. Visit their website to sponsor.
