Please do not bring your unwanted pets, found strays, or injured wildlife to our location any longer.
are continuing to care for the animals currently in our care, but once
they have all found other arrangements, The Pidgie Fund will be shutting
We hope this will be temporary, and at this point the goal
is to reopen at a future date, however that is entirely dependent upon
my health - when I recover, how fast I recover, and what tasks I will
still be able to do after recovery.
At this point I am fairly
certain that, if/when we do reopen, we will no longer be taking farm
animals (horses, goats, etc). We will likely no longer take dogs or
injured wildlife either.
As our primary function always was feral
cat rescue and bird rehabilitation, it is likely that if/when we do
reopen, we will only accept cats and birds in the future.
you know my health has been deteriorating over the past ten years.
Between cancer and chronic tendonitis, I have become increasingly
limited in mobility.
In June 2013 the chronic tendonitis resulted
in tendons seperating from my wrist and thumbs and forearms. I am as a
result, no longer able to lift anything over 20lbs. This is a problem,
as it takes 4 to 6 hours a day to feed the 500+ birds and animals we
house here, and that involves carrying 36lb bags of catfood, 40lb bags
of catlitter, and 50lb bags of grain. Not to mention shoveling 100s of
pounds of manure and poop every day.
In November 2013 an injury damaged my hip farther injuring a previous hip injury. This
was compounded in January 2014 a fall on the ice, this fall
resulting in a torn knee ligament, a pulled muscle (that big one from
knee to hip), and a strained lower back muscle.
The first few
months I was completely bed-ridden, than on crutches. I am now on a cane
and the current diagnosis is that I will likely need the cane for the
rest of my life. My ability to walk is incredibly limited.
The short of it is, I am no longer able to do the physical labor and heavy lifting this job requires.
WELCOME TO THE PIDGIE FUND!
The Pidgie Fund is a Zazzle Gallery that was started December 2005 by EelKat Wendy C. Allen. We are a non-profit group saving the world one pet at a time. All earnings from these products are used to buy food and supplies for pets in need and shelter animals in the Southern Maine area.
To date The Pidgie Fund has helped more than 500 animals ranging from house pets, to farm animals, to wildlife, including mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, mollusks, and amphibians.
The Pidgie fund was named in memory of my long time friend and companion: Pidgie, a Rock Dove or City Pigeon who was found as a day old chick laying in the middle of the road. He was quickly adopted by my 2-month-old kitten: Utopia, and the 2 of them grew up playing together and went on to become fast friends. The 2 of them were my own companions. I joined the Internet that same month of August 1997.
As my Internet fans all knew, whenever I went online, I was never alone, but always in the company of a little gray bird, who either was sitting on the computer, on my head, or running across the keyboard biting my fingers. In all my years online, I was never to use the computer without him at my side. It seemed like I’ve had Pidgie forever.
On December 10, 2005 my long time posting buddy died. He’d been my constant companion for many years and he shall not pass on unforgotten. Pidgie was not Utopia's only pet bird. My gentle Siamese cat also had 3 pet Budgies.
The Pidgie Fund was created December 11, 2005 in memory of my beloved Pidgie and is run by me and Pidgie's Siamese Cat companion Utopia. The original Website and CafePress shop opened later that week, and has over the last 2 years expanded greatly.
All products designed, photos taken, and art painted/drawn by Wendy C. Allen. More products well continue to be added as time goes by. ~~Wendy C. Allen a.k.a EelKat You can find out more about us here: The Pidgie Fund on Squidoo Copper Cockeral Cards and Gifts stocks cards, shirts, and prints featuring original art and photos by Maine native Wendy C. Allen a.k.a. EelKat.This is the sister gallery to Copper Cockeral Cards & Gifts, both of which are owned by The Twighlight Manor Press .
The shelter itself has no name but was founded in 1983 and has been located on Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine since that time, where it is housed in a barns of a former poultry farm.
Once upon a time I was working on a goal towards becoming a ornithologist/bird vet, and that was when the place got started. Our primary function has always been birds and their care. We house up to 500 birds at any given time.
In the mid-1990s we expanded to devote our facilities to helping the huge feral cat population that is fast spreading across Southern Maine.
Since the beginning we have also always had horses, goats, rabbits, and dogs in our care.
The Pidgie Fund is the fundraiser used to buy food, medical care, and other needs of the animals.

Hugs and kisses to my wonderful fans. Love you all! Talk to you again soon.
If it ain't on this list, it's probably fake.
Throughout 2013 - 2015 a slew of FAKE "EelKat" accounts surfaced, both on social networks and on forums.
NOTE: I was very active on forums from 1997 to 2007 and have RARELY used a forum since then. Other then the Warriors Forum and Absolute Write I have not posted on ANY forums AT ALL since 2012.
Note: My old inactive forum accounts were hacked and "resurrected" in 2013/2014/2015 by a psychotic NaNoWriMo ML who is upset over my having won a total of 27 writing contests/challenges and published 130+ novels since 2004 and and apparently (according to her emails) she has yet to win or publish anything.
If you see "me" posting on a forum at any point after 2012, know that it is likely this mysterious, and still yet unidentified "Kendra Silvermander".
➽ ➽ ➽ If you have any information regarding the identity of the stalker/attacker/driver of the 4-door white pick-up truck please contact Officer Tim DeLuca of the Old Orchard Beach Police Department @ 207-934-4911 and/or Agent Andy Drewer of the Portland FBI @ 207-774-9322 ◀️ ◀️ ◀️ ☎️
Please help the police and FBI put this brutal, violent, psychotically deranged stalker in prison.
Rather then ask the crazy gun-toting neighbours, and risk get shot by the psychotically deranged, white power gay haters that live up and down my street, patrolling obsessively by my driveway every 15 minutes in a 4 door white pick-up truck, just get directions from Google Maps. Here, you can find 146 Portland Avenue, Old Orchard Beach, ME right here:

And, in case you missed the notice at the top and felt the need to make a fool of yourself in my inbox, here's the notice again, longer this time.
We Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, are Scottish & this site therefore uses our Native Scottish English. We are no Americans, so please do no expect to find American English here.
For example spellings like "travelling" or "colour", pronoun differences "me" for "my" or "you" for "your" might look unfamiliar to you. They are in fact correct in our language.
Yes, I do receive you many emails pointing out what you believe to be typos and spelling errors. No, I do no respond to your American arrogance in thinking nothing other then the American language exists or your ignorance to the existence of languages other then you own. You do have a brain; I highly recommend you try using it. You might find you actually enjoy it.
I does no ask of you to speak to me in me own language, so do no ask of me to speak to you in yous language, for just as you does no know me language existed, I do no know how to use you language, though, I did have enough brain to know it existed and not berate you for using you own native tongue. I can'na say as much for thems that thought to bitch at me in emails.
