SPECIAL AUCTION

SOLD TO THE LADY IN THE FRONT ROW

Hey Hounders,
Homer J., an Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary alumnus and success story, here with more news from Ms. Carol up at AHGRRS.  There is a GReat auction on Ebay that will GReatly benefit AHGRRS.  We've reached 68% of our fund raising goal.  68% is significant cuz dad graduated from college in '68.  Only $125.00 more to go.  Can you donate just $1.00 this week?  Maybe skip a Starbucks or a McDonald's?  That's really all it will take to get us there; enough of us giving just a little bit more.  We can't save them all but we can help out those lucky ones.
Here's Ms. Carol's announcement:

Hi Everyone:
David Coalburn - - - - - - - - who is not only an extraordinary artist, but an extraordinary humanitarian is auctioning a gorgeous original painting (on ebay) to help us pay Poor Boy's Medical Bills.
Take a look, place a bid, tell your friends - - - - - -
And, while you're in the shopping mood, take a look at all the auctions that are currently being held to benefit our orphans.
Thank you - - - - - - - good bidding, and good luck.
Carol

Khyra is all too correct. We really can't help them all. But thanks to people and pups like Khyra and her mom, Ms. Phyllis, we can help some of them; the lucky ones. If you can't donate then please volunteer at a shelter or do transports. It is really a GReat "feel good" elixer of life.

Ok everyone we are getting real close to our goal, please, please pitch in just $1.00. Just think of all the good you can do not only for the Golden's but also for All Most Heaven as they try to make " Happy endings guaranteed." a statement of fact.

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.
