FEBRUARY 24TH IS SPAY DAY - CLICK HERE


Hey Hounder's,
It's Abby (Dabby-Doo) here with a message for all the peeps that are owners/custodians of a family pet. Did you know that 4 million of us dogs and cats are euthanized (i.e. killed) each year in the United States alone? This number has the potential to grow, unless we all work together to do something about it. Controlling the sheer numbers of pets without care or shelter is an effective way to go. Next week, on the 24th, you can join thousands of loving pet owners who are spaying or neutering their dogs. Read more about Spay Day in the Dogster forums ›› Spay Day USA is February 24, 2009 and it is a day set aside to advocate the positives and benefits of spaying or neutering your pets as well as where you can go to spay or neuter your pets. My theory is if you don't plan to breed your pet responsibily, or have a pet where spaying and neutering may complication a health condition and in an informed and justified manner, it's much better spay and neuter your pets. They will be healthier, behave much better and easier for you and you will also help with preventing overpopulation of animals worldwide which leads to animals being euthanized, overcrowding issues and other issues assocaited with animal welfare. Animal welfare starts with the people who share their existences and lives with other animals. Spay Day USA is an annual campaign of The Humane Society of the United States to inspire people to save animal lives by spaying or neutering pets and feral cats. Officially the last Tuesday of February, with events and activities taking place throughout the month of February. The 15th annual Spay Day USA is Feb. 24, 2009. On this day you can enter the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest! Visit photocontest.humanesociety.org between Jan. 19 and Feb. 27 to enter.

Mom can not make up her mind about getting me fixed, every time I am in heat she thinks about breeding me, then she changes her mind for fear of a bad home for my pups and possible abandonment. =( I would love to have a least a friend to pal around with. at least. =)

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.
