ALMOST HEAVENLY SUNDAY SAINTS


ALMOST HEAVEN VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Heya Hounders,

Well today's is Sunday when we should all be reflective of our world and the meaning of life and all those other guilt ridden feelings that often overcome us on Sunday. Do you feel as though you're not pulling your weight in the world? Could you be doing more for humanity than recycling your trash? Have you been purposely bad or naughty and need to do pennance for your sin? Well we know just the thing to even the score and help you earn brownie points with the big guy. You need to do something other than 5 days of community service. You need to have a charitable commitment and we think we've got just the ticket for an eternal trip to Polynesia instead of the Sahara. All of the dogs pictured on today's post are homeless animals. many were saved from scheduled "termination." Look at their faces. Do they deserve to die for the sins of the people responsible for their plight? Can you do anything at all to help ease their pain? Would you give up just one white chocolate mocha grande latte this week to help out the little homeless doggie that is starving to death? Don't y'all feel just a twinge of guilt right now, just a teeny tiny little bit. Could you possibly do even one little thing to alleviate just one the injustices burdened on these helpless canines? Well we can help y'all out with that.

Like almost all rescue organizations, Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Santuary is staffed strictly by volunteers. Without their dedicated volunteers, Almost Heaven would not exist and could not help those Goldens that need them so desperately.
There is so much that a volunteer can do besides foster and transport a dog. AHGRR needs clerical help, newsletter help, fundraising help, donations of supplies, medical services, toys, food, leashes, collars (take a look at our 100 Ways to Help a Rescue list for even more ideas), and you may even have some other ideas.
Become a Golden's Angel
All Angels go to Heaven so Why Not Sponsor A Senior/Resident or an Available Golden awaiting a new home and become an Angel? For As Little As $10/Month, You Can Make A Huge Difference In The Life Of One Of Our Permanent Residents. 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 one particular Golden. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in the AHGRR quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or PayPal payment when sponsoring a Golden.
AHGRR can assure you that any and all offers of help will be gratefully accepted and appreciated.
Note: Multiple sponsorship of a particular Golden is permitted, as some of our Goldens can never have too many Angels. AHGRR is a registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization and operates solely on Donations. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
If you would like to volunteer or Sponsor a Golden, fill out and mail a Almost Heaven Volunteer Application or or send an e-mail to Carol Free. If you would like to make donations, they are greatly appreciated, and can be sent through Paylpal. Please use the PayPal button in the blog's right margin.

AHGRR uses Patented Kuranda Dog Beds because they are durable, chew proof and easy to clean. If you would like to donate a bed to AHGRR, click here. We only need you to answer one simply little question. Will you help save just one of these faces?

Woof TBH!! My mom has a great time helping Golden Retriever Freedom Rescue's golden-hearted fur persons like me find their humans to love here in Colorado.

Try rescue work -- even a few hours a week -- and you'll see how happy you are too!!

Mum says she can't bear to look at the photos because she wants to take ALL of them home!

As an alternative to taking all of them home, we are going over to leave some pay pal credits.

Wow, Hounds and Kitties

You do good work. Who can resist those faces.

Leo says thanks for the award, we will blog about it soon when our stoopid internet service starts working better.

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.
