RADIO UPDATE FROM AHGRR #3

Hey Hounders, Don't forget to check out the ebay "original art" auction to benefit Radio. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Radio's medical bill. Just CLICK HERE.







ENCOURAGING NEWS

Boy were we happy last night when read the latest post from Ms. Carol at Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary. It's the first encouraging news we've received in regard to the blind 3 month old Golden Retriever puppy that apparently contracted the dreaded, and often fatal, parvo virus. We want to say thank you for your prayers. AHGRR has incurred a substantial vet bill for Radio's treatment and hospital stay. If y'all have the means to do so in this tough economic time, please be as generous as you can and donate to Radio's medical by making a contribution to AHGRR at their website and making a note that your donation is for Radio medical bill. AHGRR is a tax deductable charitable organization. We apologize for bothering you but we didn't want Radio to go to The Rainbow Bridge if he didn't really have to go.

Here' what Ms. Carol wrote in her email:



Hi Everyone:
I've got good news! Radio's condition has improved. He is actually eating - small amounts of special food - and keeping it down. And, today, he is acting more like a puppy - - - - - has some of his energy back.
He's not out of the woods - but his prognosis is much improved from last night.
Thank you for the prayers and support. Please don't stop now.
The earliest we will pick him up to come home will be after the weekend. He has a foster home waiting for him - - - - - I will keep everyone updated - - - - - - - - - - -

THANK YOU - all of you - - - - - - (And, Radio thanks you, too)

Radio - - -

Urchin said she's going to ask her momma to make a donation. (:

Its a good thing he's getting better now. We'll keep him in our prayers and thoughts.


Hope to see ya soon!~Boo and Scout.



(p.s- Scout here, Boo is eating dinner, Saturday(tomorrow) is Boo's 49th birthday, she's getting old but still acting like a puppy, and I was wondering if you could give Boo a happy birthday shout-out. I know she will love it very much and her tail will be wagging all day tomorrow and be very playful, which is grrrrreat. Thanks!!)

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.
