HALLOWEEN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN


HAVE FUN - BE SAFE


















HOW 'BOUT THESE
HALLOWEEN COSTUMES



















































































WE'RE MOVIN' ON UP!
Hey Hounders, We've done really well for a team starting 5 weeks into the competition and we are continuing to progress in the voting for AHGRR. We have moved up from 10th to the #9 position amongst West Virginia Shelters and AHGRR is now up to the #688 position overall. AHGRR was NOT in the top 1000 on Monday; on Tuesday we were #903, Wednesday we were #817 and #741 yesterday. We are moving in the right direction because of YOUR VOTES, so PLEASE keep voting once a day per computer. Dad votes at home and at work every day. We really have to keep voting in order to get AHGRR in a range to win one of the 73 cash awards; maybe the prize for most votes in one week. We hope y'all don't get upset by our daily reminder about voting. Please go to the bottom of this post to read all about it. Thank you all very much for helping us in this effort. You're helping to save lives and provide health care and shelter for homeless dogs while they're awaiting their furever homes. PLEASE consider posting the voting instructions on your blog and asking your readers to join us in our effort. We know this is a pain in the butt, but the holiday season is upon us and what better way to celebrate than taking the time and effort to vote in order to alleviate a poor pup's pain and suffering.

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 so far for this week's Monday Mystery Guest:
1.- The MG is actually a terrific threesome.
2.- The MG does NOT live in old England.
3.- The MG is apparently 2/3 rds satisfied.

4.- One of these things is not like the others.
5.-A part of the MG is identified in the sky as the fixed 5th sign for the fire lion.


Today's Clue:
6.- Where the MG lives, the town's only restaurant, Reed's Country Store, has been in business since 1977, not 1751 when the town was incorporated. Breakfast and lunch is served there and it has been a central town gathering point for years. Every September for the past 38 years their town has had a Country Fair in the Town Center. And there must be a new tree therethat has a very high IQ. Hopefully the state police cadets won't chop it down.

Life Lessons From Boru:

Golden Retrievers politely say "Trick or Treat" please.

PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRR
Please go to this website:

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

The webpage is somewhat temperamental 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:


Shelter Name: Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue

Country: United States

State: WV

City: Capon Bridge

Then 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 then will be thanked for your vote to indicate that your vote has registered. You can cast one vote every day for your favorite rescue organization. Voting begins on September 14th, 2009, and ends at midnight (PST) on December 20th, 2009. The more friends you can rally to vote for your favorite rescue organization, the better its chances of winning. Every vote, every day counts - shelters can pull ahead even during the last few days with enough support. Get people involved! Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary is counting on us!

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.
