New Logo

There it is folks, our new logo.  Thanks to the great work of the students in the Rochester Institute of Technology's Design department.

No, I don't have it in a larger format (yet).
The little rectangle at the bottom says A 501c3 Charity

Still to come:
Hats, patches, shirts, mugs, stickers, etc.

Ways to help

Our gofundme is still going on...

But also consider:

--Setting up a recurring donation
--Honoring or memorializing someone
--Matching your employee's donation
--Pledging for a three-year period
--Conducting a fundraiser

Emergency Vet trip

Polar Bear is home.  Happy and healthy, and no worse for the wear.  Seems he got into a discarded bag of Ortho bug-b-gone and licked the dregs.

Luckily, it was 98% empty. 

$137 for an exam, overnight stay with IV, and catheter  (that'll teach him.)

Polar Bear is weak and shaky.  Unsteady when standing and walking.
No idea what happened/what he got into/what got at him.
No vomiting or diarrhea or fever.  Vet says it fits with a toxin given the sudden onset.  Could be something he ate, (noxious plant) or got into (but just like babies, we keep dangerous stuff up and away.)
They're putting him on IV fluids and keeping him overnight.
Hopefully this doesn't wipe out our bank account.
I'll update when I kniw more.
