A LOVE STORY :-) AND JUSTICE SERVED (?) ;-(

ALL-STAR SHELTER CHALLENGE
PLEASE VOTE 
Max and Shiloh romping
Check the top of the right side bar. --->:

8 August 2010: AHGRRS is #1 in WV with 22.50% of the state vote; DOWN 0.16% from 22.66% yesterday. We're holding at #57 nationally. The #2 shelter (P.U.R.R. West Virginia Inc.) has 12.80%; DOWN 0.61% from 13.41% yesterday.  They have also been slipping along with AHGRRS; they are holding now at #139 . There's still only a single digit 9.70% gap between WV #1 and #2, but it's opened up  by 0.5.5%  from yesterday's 9.15% gap.  The end is in sight; only 20 more voting days in the contest.  Thank You for voting to keep us in the running for the $1,000.00 state award.  

Please don't get complacent.  We're holding our own right now, but we'd been slipping badly and things can change drastically in a wink of Gracie's eye if we all don't all
KEEP VOTING EVERYDAY.
Time to call in reinforcements (friends).
Perhaps you can copy the info from the top right side bar and post it on your blog to help us out in our effort.
PLEASE

Let's start with this unbelievably horrible story where justice was supposedly served:

Subject: Justice for Buddy

Man who dragged dog to death gets maximum sentence.

U.S. District Judge Philip Brimmer is a hero in our book, only wish the maximum could have been greater :goldhead:<http://goldenfriendsrescue.org/gfforum/images/smilies/goldhead.gif>

Woof! Woof! Good to hear from you guys ... Its been a long time. Hope you are well n staying cool. Yes justice is served if 3 years is considered the max for this kind a brutal animal crime. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

It's nice to know that although this poor boy suffered immeasurably his death was not in vain. People took notice and put the courts on notice that 'we are mad as hell and won't take it anymore'.

BTW, we vote for you all the time☺

Here in Colorado, we are happy that the judge came down hard on the killer. Now if judges everywhere will take note and take animal cruelty seriously.

The tall one voted for you today, again. Hope you win!

We were happy to see that this crime was taken seriously and the jerk that did this received the maximum sentence.
However 3 years is not enough, most offenders that commit crimes such as these go on to more heinous crimes usually against people or children.
But we do congratulate the judge that he did all he could do within the present statutes.
We are off to vote, glad you guys are back, we were worried about you.

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.
