Citizens for Pets in Condos Closer to Goal

It's been a long, tough battle for this cause - allowing cats and dogs in condos - and Maida Genser, Fairy Godmother of the effort, is a real hero. An important meeting is coming up on the issue. Here are the details:

1) The Florida Condo Ombudsman is now ready to hear us.  Please
help make sure our voices are heard.

   12/8/2007, 10 AM - 1 PM, Annual Condominium Association
Members' Roundup, Broward Community College, South Campus, 7200
Pines Blvd, Building 68, Pembroke Pines, FL. This is your chance
to be heard! Come speak up for allowing pets in condos. Danille
R. Carroll, ESQ, the Florida Condo Ombudsman, has called this
meeting. She will be there, as well as the head of DBPR land
sales, and local state legislators.

Blvd/Pines Blvd exit. Go one mile west on Pines Blvd to the
campus entrance and proceed south to the perimeter road (just

last building on the right, Building 68 - the Performing and
Cultural Arts Theatre. The building is on the NE corner of the
campus. Parking is just beyond (east of) building 68. The
entrance to the building is on the west side.

   Please write up your concerns -- make them concise and to the
point.  Then, send them to Danille Carroll, the Ombuds”man”

2) Linda Schmidt is fighting to keep her cat.  She is in a desperate situation.  She has an appellate attorney who will file an appeal for her, but she immediately needs over $2000 to get a transcript of the trial where her former attorney challenged whether the condos pet laws were properly entered.  She is waiting to get disability and waiting for insurance to pay for her injuries. If anyone can please help with any kind of donation to help her, or with a loan, please contact us at info@petsincondos.org.  If you make a donation for Linda, please let us know to separate that money for that purpose.  Go to http://www.petsincondos.org/HelpUsHelp.htm#Donate for information on how to donate.
