WEBSITE IT HELP NEEDED

NEWS FLASH FROM AHGRRS
Hey Hounders,
New kid Patti (Whackit) and big Jubes (who is depressed by the news) here.  We have received an urgent message from AHGRRS headquarters.  Ms. Carol needs some knowledgeable website help.  Dad would help but he is a bit ignorant of webmastering techniques. 
If any of you can spare the time require each week to at least keep the AHGRRS website functional, it would be greatly appreciated.  If you're really into this stuff you can even work with Ms. Carol to develop and expand the site utilizing your own ideas and techniques.  The website is a major factor in presenting our adoptable homeless dogs to the public in order to find them a new furever home.  Loss of  website capabilities will adversely affect AHGRRS's ability to help out homeless pups.We don't think that age is a factor since young people today are very IT savvy.  
Maybe this would be good for a scouting merit badge, Eagle Scout project or other community service requirement.  Even if you can't help with this particular cause, perhaps you know of someone who can.  please let them know that their talents are needed.  Here's a way to help the helpless and definitely "make a difference."  We need YOU.  Here's the website address so you can get an ide of what is required:
_ TBH&K.


Hi Everyone:
Our very dedicated and hardworking webmaster has asked to be  relieved of her job (after a VERY long time) so that she can pursue a life of her own (imagine that - lol) - - - - - sooooooo - - - - - - - we are looking for a new webmaster.
Here is the scoop.  No - we cannot afford to pay someone - sorry - - - - - - - - we just don't have the funding for it.
We need someone who will either work with what already exists - or set up something completely new - their choice - - - - - - BUT - - - - - - it must be maintained at least WEEKLY - and it cannot demand a lot of input from me
- because, quite honestly, I don't have the time to devote to it.  As it stands now, I post the dogs to petfinder, and the webmaster pulls them from there.  I send information on the Bridge Kids, Items for Sale, etc as they happen - - - - - - - - I do not have a lot of time to spend on this project.  Everything else, including the store, was Kat's project - - - - - and she did it very well.
In the meantime, I have asked our webmaster to strip the site of any date sensitive materials in the next few weeks and I will update the dogs available for adoption through Save A Pet.
This will no longer be a pretty site - and will be barely functional - so if you can help - I'd like to hear from you.  I don't know anything about websites - don't ask me.  If I have to learn - I will have to - but I would prefer to leave that to someone else.
Thank you - - - - for everything.  Please don't volunteer unless you really want to do it - - - - - with little or no supervision - - - - - and for an indefinite period of time.  I know that does not sound attractive - but it's the way it is - lol

We wish you luck on this - we wish we could help out but our mom is not that good at computer stuff (she is ok at it but not great) plus she has a hard time keeping up with our own stuff! We will ask a couple people we know who know web people to see if they are interested - maybe they will be able to help out.

I wish I could help, I don't think I could find the time right now to dedicate on a reliable schedule. Maybe down the road?

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.
