If you don't mind that will keep me from calling you eleanor. Which is my wife's name which I have to look at your name three times every time to not say. Eleanor de Delgado. And I I apologize because I'll probably do that so Josh go ahead. You start out and I'll join in certain things so What does your organization do to help animals in the local communities? Yes well we have a special role in the local communities since we do not run a shelter. We do a lot of other stuff We actually serve as a hotline for people calling in. They think that we have a shelter. We point them to shelters rescue groups. We give them advice when we and and one of the our most important roles in the local community on the Mid Peninsula here is our our veterinary programs We help people who are low income when their pets are ill. We help rescuers with our animal rescue fund to take them to the vet. We also have a spay neuter fund that we use to help local animals who are Bandon who needs to be stayed and neutered before they can go out to adoption and speaking of that hotline. What is the top frequently asked question that is received on that it's about cat? We were very active Years ago and we still are in the cat rescue community and it's always about people. It's nearly always about people finding kittens outside. What can they do to help? We point them to shelters and rescue groups and with that in mind since you mentioned cats how are Cats doing in the low in the local shelters within your area like is there an abundance. Or what's going on there if you know? Open shelters all they. Most of the cats are out in Foster programs there's been a large response to Call outs for fosters. And they're they're doing they're doing well in foster program and What are Stoesz more about these foster programs? Are they temporary homes for these kittens? Or what is what happens until they can be returned to shelter or rescue group. Were they are adopted out In addition to Helping cats and dogs and other animals We're running a campaign called creating compassionate communities and this is the way in which we not only Give our attention to veterinary issues but also to educational issues and Tell us more about some of these educational issues or programs that you offer within the Palo Alto humane society. Okay We started out. We're actually pretty pretty old. We started out in nineteen eight as an advocacy group Addressing issues around the welfare of animals on the community at that on the peninsula at that time The Palo Alto. Police were actually shooting. Stray dogs. Horses were going thirsty and our group address these issues. We advocated for functioning. Animal shelter was built by US and run by US until nineteen seventy and that at that point it was taken over by the city of Palo Alto so What we do now is basically focused on advocacy and our Veterinary programs that I mentioned and education Do you want to speak a little bit? More about the educational programs are advocacy absolutely and feel free to also mention in addition to these Any of the other ways in which your organization addresses community outreach. Okay sure yeah In a few years ago in the nineties we created we help create the California Coalition for homeless cats which fought against all kinds of negative legislation that supported euthanasia we propose a trap neuter return popularly known as TNN and that's now taken root in the country and has become one of the main ways and the best way to deal with homeless cat populations We also advocated for the local shelter to keep it open when the city of Palo Alto threatened to close it and twenty twelve and we've always advocated for and supported good legislation and public policy such as prop to And other actions that we've taken. We introduced with local legislator Kevin Mullin a statewide proposition linking character education with humane education for all schools in the state in the state of California and our basic thrust. Now excuse me is education. We want young people to become ambassadors of compassion. So we look for different ways in which we can engage them in our programs. And if it's okay with you I'd like to mention a couple of these programs. Go ahead okay. Sure What we're doing right now is we're sponsoring a story writing contest for seventh and eighth graders in the local counties of Santa Clara and some fail and we had our first contests last year.

Yeah and this started out and it still is a reading program. It's a shelter based reading program where kids of all ages come and read to the cats and when they start reading to cats and kittens the they re quietly the cats and kittens come up to them and then they begin the process of socialization with these cats and kittens. These are all adoptable cats and kittens. Some are more shy than others. And we've had some wonderful wonderful successes Cats and kittens have overcome their. You know being frightened of people they've Been adopted Some of our volunteers in this program have become fosters We give Community service time for high school students involved in the program We also visit classrooms and after school programs with a tailoring our interaction with them to their needs so if they want to learn more about dogs we have A large contingency of what we call our dog teams and they go out to the schools to scouts to after school clubs community service clubs and interact with the participants at the same time. The participants are learning about good ways to take care of dogs. We do the same with with cats We also have an online program and we'd like to encourage teachers to look at the program.

Alto and the local communities surrounding to have its own shelter. That's very important low AD. That's an amazing insight on that whole story like I'm glad it ended up.
