Hey Hounders,
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month http://www.nbcam.org/. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is a foundation dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer http://ww5.komen.org/ and it has adopted the colour PINK for the effort. Because of that there is a significant presence of PINK noticeable during October to draw attention to breast cancer awareness. Click on the photos to enlarge.


Commercial companies and professional athletes are including PINK item in their endeavours in order to raise awareness and contribute a portion of revenue to the fight against breast cancer. Brett Favre, the quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings U.S. National Football League team wore PINK football cleat shoes in that team's game against arch rival The Green Bay Packers for which Mr. Favre played most of his career. Mr. Farve's wife is a breast cancer survivor.

Both the U.S. National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) and the Formula One racing circuit have teams field PINK race cars:

Delta Airlines, and others, have painted one of their aircraft in PINK. Dad bought Purina Cat Chow for our kitties last week and it came in a PINK decorated bag.

Operation Petticoat is a 1959 (50 years ago) comedic film directed by Blake Edwards, and starring Cary Grant, Tony Curtis, and Dina Merrill, later adapted for television in 1977. It featured a most unusual PINK submarine.

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.
