BEGGING FOR YOUR HELP FRIDAY

HOW 'BOUT THESE
HALLOWEEN COSTUMES!





















PLEASE HELP US; PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE












<-- ABBY & HOMER J.-->
Hey Hounders,
It's Abby and Homer J. here with a very special (like we're begging special) request. Just like we all recently helped out Cap'n maverick with his Halloween Costume Contest, we need your help in trying to win a contest to help out homeless dogs at our favorite shelter. You may know that we are both dogs that were rescued by, and adopted from, the Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary. Well we just got a letter from Ms. Carol who runs AHGRR along with her husband, Mr. Skip. They are two of the special 'make a difference' people in this world and we love them very much. We are posting the letter below, so that will kind of explain the 'why' of "what" we're asking you to do. We want 2 things from y'all: 1. we want you to go to this website:


The webpage is somewhat tempermental but the above link is correct. Please give the page enough time to fully load to "done" before proceeding. Then we want you to enter the following red data into the boxes provided:

Search And Vote For A Shelter

Shelter Name: Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue

Country: United States


State: WV

City: Capon Bridge

Click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing the location of AHGRR:

Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc.
Capon Bridge, WV 26714


And, more importantly, a "VOTE" button will appear. Click on the "VOTE" button

You will then have to identify a particular animal in a photo to confirm your vote; this eliminates machine voting. You will be thanked for your vote to indicate that your vote has registered.

WAA-LAA! First mission accomplished.

As one of Boru's Life lessons would say; If at first you don't succeed, please, try, try again. Thank you so very much for your assistance in saving lives of homeless animals.

Secondly, we would really, really appreciate it if you could get all of your bazillion blog readers to also go vote for AHGRR. The more votes AHGRR gets, the better. Pretend you're from Chicago and vote as often as you're allowed to for AHGRR. Maybe you can repost this begging request; however you would like to do it.

We will be very thankfull if you can do these two things for us and we will "owe" y'all.

So here's Ms. Carol's newsletter and the rest of our normal drivel which we try to provide on a somewhat daily basis.

Hi Everyone:

We have quite a few new faces here, including one face that we don't even have a picture of yet - lol

Take a look at Petfinder (our webpage is probably not up to date yet):

http://www.petfinder.com/shelterSearch/shelterSearch.cgi?animal=&breed=&age=&size=&specialNeeds=&declawedPets=&children=&status=&id=&internal=&contact=&name=&shelterid=WV61&sort=&preview=1
Some of our new orphans are without sponsors to help them with their vetting needs. If you would like to sponsor someone, please let me know.

Petfinder is holding a shelter contest right now - winning in any category would mean some much needed extra money to us. Would each of you click on the following link and vote for us? You can vote one time each day - - - we could really use the help. Details of the contest can also be found here.


http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/shelterchallenge.faces?siteId=3

Just fill in Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and the City of: Capon Bridge - and it will take you to the page where you can cast your vote.


On a sad note - we lost two of our orphans this past week. Ziggy, who had recovered from heartworm treatment, and we felt was now ready to have a great life in a new home died last Thursday from massive bleeding in his digestive tract.
-- Ziggy --


And, yesterday, we lost our most beloved Trevor. He wasn't sick, injured, or weak. Yesterday morning he was having fun with Skip and the vacuum cleaner - yesterday afternoon he lay dead in his run. We are beyond devastated as he had been with us a long time - and was very special to us.
-
-- Trevor --

Many of you may remember Trevor's "dance" routine as he loved to greet people and show off. He has left a huge hole here.

Thank you everyone for your continued help and support. You are all very special people.

Carol
Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue


MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
Remember, the MG is one of our followers listed at the top of our blog. These are the clues we gave y'all for this week's Monday Mystery Guest:
1.- Some would say that the MG is "The End.
2.- The MG is big on grooming

Here are a few more clues to make up for the last few days:
3.- The MG is an aspiring author, as yet unpublished.
4.- A tabloidesque title infers the MG is secretive at home.
5.- The MG probably favors Nellis Thunderbirds over Los Angeles azul.

Life Lesson From Boru:

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

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.
