Hey Hounders,
We're the five current members of The Bumpass Hounds that were adopted by mom and dad after we were rescued from an uncertain and onimous future by Almost Heaven Golden Retriever rescue and Sanctuary.  Right now The Animal Rescue Site is sponsoring The Shelter Challenge, in which AHGRRS could realistically win a grant of $1,000.00.  If you'll check out the bottom of this post you'll be able to read the details and decide whether or not you'd like to help us out.  Animal rescue is a GReat thing and it is a wonderful idea to adopt from a rescue or shelter organization.  Seniors and special need dogs need love and can give love as much as a cute, cuddly puppy.  We are very appreciative of the second chance that we've received.  We're proud to be second chance pets.  Ever wonder what it mioght be like if people and pets did a bit of role reversal?  Our non-blogging friends Hamish and Sophie (not our Sophie) sent us a video that sheds some light on the situation.  You can mute our blog music at the very bottom of the blog page before you watch the video.

TAKE ME. PLEASE, TAKE ME.



=======================
PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRRS


The above link will take you to the Animal Rescue Site where you will get to click to donate a free bowl of food to homeless animals. After you do that you will be presented with a "Thank You" page; at the top center of that page please click on the "VOTE TODAY" button. That will then take you directly to the voting page. The only information that you need to enter is to select "WV" as the State from the drop down menu and enter "Capon" for the City. Then click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing "Almost heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. Capon Bridge, WV 26714." A "VOTE" button will also appear. Click on that "VOTE" button. After you vote you will see a confirmation page that requires you to identify an animal photo; this eliminates illegal machine voting. The answer is simply the type of animal that you see; dog, cat, turtle, fish, cow, etc. - not a specific breed. You can cast one vote everyday from as many different computers to which you have access. Voting will run until August 22, 2010.  You can have the Animal Rescue Site send you a daily reminder to "click" for free food; then you can vote in the All-Star Shelter Challenge. The more friends you can rally to vote the better our chances of winning. Every vote, every day, every computer - counts. 
Thanks to your efforts, in the West Virginia state competition AHGRRS has retaken the top spot by a very slight margin.  That can change back again over night so don't give up your effort---- VOTE  We've got 14.71% of the WV vote today, up from yesterday when we had 13.55% ;  #2 has 14.05% and yesterday they had 14.48%.  There's only a 0.66% gap (0.93% yesterday the other way) which we reversed in just a few days of heavy voting. We're now at #168 nationally; yesterday we were #189.  The WV #2 shelter is at #178 nationally (yesterday #175); now only 10 spots behind us; it was 14 spots ahead of us yesterday. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf. 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO HELP,
VOTE
AND PLEASE TRY TO GET OTHERS TO VOTE TOO

Hope the video helps to bring awareness of Rescue to folks that are looking for a companion.
We voted, and every vote we make is to your credit because if it had not been for your blog we would have never been clued in to what wonderful things Almost Heaven does.

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.
