YOU DID IT!

Hey Hounders. Thank you all so very much for your support in The Animal Rescue Site Shelter Challenge. We started six weeks in to the contest and have scratched our way up tp the #1 position within the State of West Virginia. This makes Ms. Carol and Mr. Skip so very proud. There are only five more days of voting so don't stop now. If we finish in the #1 position for West Virginia then AHGRR will receive a $1000.00 grant from The Animal Rescue Site. That grant will be your Christmas present to the homeless animals at AHGRR waiting for their furever homes. So we would really hate to see us faulter at this point and slip back down in the polls. Please, just keep up the voting frenzy for five more days. What a GReat Christmas present for Ms. Carol and Mr. Skip. Y'all done good and we hope ya have that Christmas Spirit feeling. - Homer J., Jubal, J.E.B., Sophie, Shelby Belle, Jack, Abby Max, Shiloh, Radar, Alex, Boru and Jenny = The Bumpass Hounds and kitties (TBH&K)

THE BEGGING STRIP.
Radar, your Voting Team Captain, with my daily plea for your HELP! Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) has moved to the #1 position for West Virginia shelters but we've advanced to #128 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 Toby Too. Toby Too 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 Toby Too. Maybe you can help sponsor Toby Too while she 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 Toby Too's warm, loving brown eyes. How can you say no to her. Perhaps you can find it in your heart to provide a homeless pup an AHGRR sponsorship if only for the holidays. Even if you can't, you can still vote for AHGRR and possibly help Toby Too. Here's a biography on Toby Too:


3 1/2 year old Toby is such a good boy. Toby is housebroken, does well on leash, and is a very nice looking boy. Toby is a special dog looking for a special home. We would prefer that he be an "only furkid" and that he have a conventional fenced yard. If you would like to offer Toby Too a forever home, please submit and application which you can download from our website. Toby already has his two front teeth, now all he needs for Christmas is a sponsor.

Woo Hooo...congratulations Radar, you will make a great "development officer" some day. Nonprofits will be lining up to hire you, and you will have more bones than ALL the Bumpass hounds together can eat.

Great job

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.
