GOLDIE RESCUE


RESCUE
TRANSPORT
TIME

Hey Hounders. Your old buddy Jubal here. Just want y'all to know that we've been busy building a new pen out in the paddock for Shiloh and Max. They play pretty rough sometimes and we've had some disputes about who's in charge. Jack, who weighs about 60 pounds stepping out of the lake, takes exception to Max's claim that he, Max, is the boss dog. Max weighs about 155 pounds. The old saying that "it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog" has been proven here to be quite invalid. Unfortunately, Shelby Belle happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when Max and Jack were having their dominance discussion. So Dad built a new pen within the paddock. Max can be the boss of Shiloh in the pen and the rest of us can run around in the paddock and not worry about further disputes about it.

To get to the topic at hand, Dad is going to be doing a rescue transport this Saturday. A Golden Retriever named Goldie was going to be terminated in a North Carolina shelter; that's a bad thing. A very nice and concerned woman decided to pull him out of the "shelter" and rescue him; that's a good thing. So Saturday, Ms. Kim will be bringing Goldie up north to Richmond where Dad is going to meet her. Then Dad will take Goldie up to Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary in Delray WV where Ms. Carol and Mr. Skip will take care of him until they can find Goldie a new furvever home. Dad has promised to take lots of picture, which means he might take a few, and tell us all about how things go. So it's Rescue Transport Time this Saturday. If you think that you can help do transports and you live in the mid Atlantic
area please contact Ms. Carol at AHGRR. If you live anywhere else, which is a good probability, contact your local rescue organization. Your local SPCA should know who they are. Remember, October is Adopt A Dog Month. If you can't adopt then you might be able to DONATE; either some time or some moola. Every little bit helps and even helping a little is better than doing nothing at all. - Jubal

Hi, guys. Tell your human thanks for doing a rescue run. Like you and I, we have faced a short life in a chain link kennel. So s apecial thank you from on rescue hound to another. Give him a lick or two from us. All five dogs dogs playing here today, are from rescue. All five of us faced a short future until someone came to take us out.

Thanks, and keep blogging!

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
