PHRIDAY PHOTOS

HOMER J.

Hey Hounders,
It’s me, Homer J., the oldest of The Bumpass Hounds. I was the shelter dog in a kill shelter in southwest VA but my time ran out and some nice people at the shelter shuttled me up to Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary. That's my PetFinder adoption photo over to the right; Mom saw me on the AHGRR Pet Finder list a few months after Chance went to The Rainbow Bridge in August 2007.  Mom says that I’m not a replacement dog but there was a “Vacancy” sign at The Bumpass Hounds Motel and in her heart, so I was welcomed to take up residence in November 2007 and I graciously accepted.  It took a while for me to become adjusted; I use to need to be invited inside and I didn't get on the furniture or the beds but I lost all of those nasty habits and have no trouble with any of that stuff now. So, I’m a rescue and “Rescue Dogs Rock.”
“Rescue Cats Rock.” too.
PLEASE don't forget to vote for Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary in the Animal Rescue Site's Shelter Challenge today, and everyday until April 18th.  Directions are in the right side bar and at the bottom of this post.  Thank you very much.
- Homer J.

A VERY SPECIAL PUP
Three year old Luke is a total sweetheart.  He has never met a person or pet that he didn't love.  Luke is eager to please, and he is crate trained.  Luke is also deaf, so he will need a fenced yard and someone who will understand his only handicap is his inability to hear.  Luke is in a situation a lot like our dog Radar who is blind.Luke needs a home.  If you can't adopt, maybe you can sponsor.

LUCKY LUKE said...

O the Homer... I cannot believe how similar our first and second lives are!

There is one difference though... I am not sure any of you would have the tummy for my Petfinder pitcher.

My the Mom has it and all the archived web pages associated wif it. It is etched into her heart, but tempered wif the emotions of knowin how many people shuttled me, hid me and protected me... durin those 8 monfs...

Until someone had the fine idea of contactin Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston!

Me and you, Homer... ::thump heart:: we do love, believe in and are grateful for the Mission!

Fank you for all you all do!

wif love from the Luke

p.s. GRRH has recently taken in a a couple of older guys... Starsky and Hutch... handsome and from what I hear, GReat buddies. They are super bonded and will need to be placed together. The Mom is goin over to their Foster Mom's and meet them and take photos... need your prayers that they don't come home wif the her (on a counta you know the her... and she really all ready in love wif the them!)!

FOR CHANCE, GORDON, HOMER, RADAR, SPENCER, CHANDLER, MAXDOG, LUKE & BLUE, AND SO MANY OTHERS.

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.
