FLEET FRIDAY - BEAT ARMY

ARMY-NAVY GAME: 1 DAY
=
In order to minimize the pain and suffering to our readers we have convinced our most loving, kind and gentle dad to put all of his Army-Navy Game stuff in one section of the blog post so that in those extremely rare circumstances where someone might possibly, for some insane reason, not be interested in THE Game they can simply skip this section. Remember, this week all Plebe vocalizations to any officers and upper classmen begin and end with the last two words to The Star Spangled Banner (our National Anthem), which are:
"BEAT ARMY"

PLEASE VOTE.
Radar, your Voting Team Captain, with my daily plea for your HELP! Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) has moved to the #2 position for West Virginia shelters but we've slid back to #158 overall in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting this morning. We only have a little over a week to go so we obviously need lots of help to get into winning range. We'd like to win the top spot in West Virginia. It would be a lot of help if y'all could solicit support from others to help us achieve our goal. Again we ask that you please consider appealing to your social network friends on Facebook, My Space, etc. Our mom simply asked her facebook friends to vote and she got all positive responses. Please do it for the homeless pups during this Christmas Season of love and charity. I've been trying to give you reasons to vote for AHGRR and I'd like to give you yet one more. This dog, like all the others, is not just a nameless stray wandering through the fields, his name is Sunny K. Sunny K has been waiting in shelter for his new furever home for a little while now. Perhaps you could find room in your heart and home for Sunny K. Maybe you can help sponsor Sunny K while he waits for his new home. Perhaps a small Christmas or holiday donations to AHGRR would give you that Santa feeling that people seem to enjoy having; just look at that fabulous face and imagine that you're looking into Sunny K's warm, loving brown eyes. How can you say no to him. Even if you can't, you can still vote for AHGRR and possibly help Sunny K. Here's a biography on Sunny K:
Sunny K is about 9 - 10 years old. He was purchased at a yard sale by a lady who then turned him over to animal control because Sunny didn't get along with her cats. Sunny doesn't act his age. He's a nice boy who can be selective about his canine companions - - - - - - but wouldn't he look cute curled up in front of your fireplace this winter? He is very loving, and would love to find a forever home soon. If you would like to offer Sunny K a forever home, please submit and application which you can download from our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) Please email or mail it to AHGRR.

I ate lots of natural foods until I learned that most cats die of natural causes.

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.
