There are only three days left to raise the money needed to get
Boscoe to his sanctuary.  I just made a donation and they are now up
to $380. and the goal is $550........ PLEASE send what you can, every
little bit helps, and if they don't reach the $550 goal the money is
returned and Boscoe has no place to go.  

Read his story below, and thank you Michael for your offer to give
Boscoe a loving home for the rest of his life.
