8/27 - Sadly giving up on project here. All our attempts have been misconstrued and have only resulted in people's complete misunderstanding of what I was trying to do. Thank you to all the people who have supported all of us and tried to help. We appreciate it all.

8/10 - Submitted Royal's Pet Pad Project to Kickstarter to help raise funds for our non-profit! Here is the preview. I also just updated the Petition on Change. org to try to find people who can help us find a way to stay here. View Petition Here (currently 58 supporters)

Stay tuned! Going to meet Pete my long time friend in Hamden to talk about run. Renewed Craig's List postings.

I cleaned their house when it was originally constructed in Conyers Farm in Greenwich! I also contacted an old friend Paul Hirsh from P&H Construction. He is a very successful builder from Norwalk, CT. Added more photos to the gallery.

7/11
- Set up this news page so you can follow our progress. Follow up with the Channel 3 News Desk via phone and email. Another friend working on this also got information the the Channel 8 News Desk today.

7/10 - 12am. Emailed Scot Haney asking for help in getting some press from Channel 3. His quick reply came at 6am and gave me info on where to call. A very dear friend of mine emailed Kevin Hogan as a follow up to my email. CT Cruise News ran an article due to come out in this months paper.

8:45 am. - Ran to Guilford Green and tried to make a connection with Channel 8 news when they were broadcasting there. Gil Simmons was kind enough to listen to my plea and take one of my flyers. My friend Larry Kalbfeld was also there and got me a contact email, which I came back and sent over a quick follow up email explaining our situation. Also met two very nice women who I spoke with who showed interest in supporting and helping this cause.

12pm - Followed up on a lead to call "K9 Safe at Home Pet Service." Played phone tag with Julie who runs the organization. At 4:15 we finally connected. She is absolutely wonderful, with a cause almost duplicate of what I would like to do and has been helping people for a very very long time. I am looking forward to meeting her and seeing if we can be a mutual asset to each other in our quest to help animals and people. Her guidance can be invaluable in helping us get started.
