We’re trying to raise money to cover the expenses Arf has for starting the website, publishing The BARK of DOG, shipping, and more, which, after income, amount to $4,356.  We’ll continue to support help for homeless people and homeless dogs.  We’re also trying to raise money for producing a printed version of Addiction in the Body—Too Good is Just Awful and other work on addiction.
