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 like those 4 women that had a TV show and supposedly lived in Miami, FL, but is only one.
2.- The MG is a NorCal GRReat dog.
Today's Clue:
3.- The MG lives where you can be a winer or a whiner.

VOTING PROGRESS:

Hey Hounders, it's me, Radar (a.k.a. - Radio). This is a picture from after when AHGRR saved me from being "put down" and I was getting out of the hospital. I was originally gonna be "put down." I'm not sure what they were gonna put me down into, but it didn't sound very nice and I'm glad Ms. Carol and Mr. Skipped rescued me. I was diagnosed with the parvo virus and had to go to the hospital in Charlestown, WV. When I was cured I needed to be quarantined for 4 weeks and AHGRR didn't have a quarantine facility ($$$) so mom and dad picked me up to foster; the picture is mom putting on my leash after the vet tech brought me out of the hospital quarantine wing door. Once again mom and dad proved to be inept foster parents, evidently they've tried and failed before, and they decided they loved me too much to take me back. So now I've been appointed "Team Captain" in our effort to have AHGRR win some of the grant money that the Animal Rescue Site is distributing to those animal shelters that garner enough votes. We're doing quite well for a team that started late; 5 weeks into the competition, but we are playing "catch up." We have moved up from 10th to the #9 and now the #7 position amongst West Virginia Shelters and AHGRR is now up to the #476 position overall. AHGRR was NOT in the top 1000 on last Monday; on Tuesday we were #903, Wednesday we were #817, then #741 Friday, #688 on Saturday/Sunday and then #603 and #588. 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.

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 (not always as easy as it sounds); 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 (we suggest Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue). 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.
