Divas & Dogs

This page is all about LOVE…

Kristen Porter Presents has been making a difference in the community since 1998. We have brought countless couples together (Kristen Porter as a Massachusetts Justice of the Peace has even officiated some of their weddings!). We have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local charities and grassroots causes for the LGBTQ and women’s community. We have contributed to the adoption of rescue dogs in New England via our monthly Enews column and our annual Dogs, Divas & Drag Show. And via The List: Boston’s Queer Agenda have worked to reduce isolation and build community integrating the arts, Internet technology and social change to create cultural activism with a particular eye towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/non-binary, alternative, women’s, and progressive communities, including our allies.

Looking for Forever Homes

ADOPT ME! HOYT

We’ve been told this boy may walk again and we are on the mission to give him every chance in the world! Surrendered to a shelter in Memphis, Hoyt arrived to the shelter with a broken back which had already healed. We were asked if we could take him on and there wasn’t a chance we’d say no.  Hoyt is approx. 2 years old and 3.5 lbs soaking wet. He’s not housetrained and we are still determining if he is incontinent or just never house trained because of his condition. He’s with a loving foster family now who are working with him and have made his life so much more bearable.  We had Hoyt visit with specialist who confirmed his condition is likely permanent – the official diagnosis: T13-L1 spinal fracture/luxation with severe (~100%) displacement in the cranial caudal and medial lateral directions. Loss of detail is noted on the digital films but it appears to be chronic and healed.

Don’t let the wheelchair scare you – as you can see by his video, he gets around wonderfully.  Check him out in the first few minutes of his getting his wheels!! youtu.be/7ZAXF0PgfyY
