THE GREAT HUNTER

NAFOD

Hey Hounders,
It' me, Gracie, doing my very first blog post.   I'm feeling a little "drained" while I wait for my situation to "sink" in.  I've been a TBH+K pack member for 10 months now.  I'm right at home; have been since day one.  Mom and dad sometimes call me NAFOD which is short for No Apparent Fear Of Death, because the big hairy beasts (canine or feline) don't bother me and they'd better get outta my way.  
I have a visual story for you today about a mighty big cat hunter stalking a vicious raptor. It's a thrilling adventure that I'm sure you're all gonna enjoy.  Here's The Great Hunter.

CONCLUSION

YOU CAN HELP US OUT
Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) operates solely on private donations and corporate or organizational grants. Right now you can help us in our attempt to win a $1,000.00 grant from The Animal Rescue Site's Shelter Challenge. The below logo link will take you to the Animal Rescue Site (dad fixed it) 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 right side of the top 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" in the State box from the drop down menu and then click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing a list of shelters. The second shelter on the list will be  "Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. Capon Bridge, WV 26714." A "VOTE" button will also appear. Simply 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. Actually, you can vote in the early morning and then again in the evening after about 8-10 hours; you can also vote from different browser such as MS-Explorer, Yahoo, Firefox and Google Chrome. Voting will run for about six more weeks.  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. On our blog we provide a status report of how we're doing; right now not so hot - 2nd place and slipping. Won't you please take the time to help out a senior Golden?

VOTING STATUS:
Slipped further back today in the West Virginia state competition, as of 2/16/2011, AHGRRS is in 2nd place and the gap is widening a bit. We can get back to #1 again over a few days if ya'll don't give up your effort---- VOTE  We've got 17.41% of the WV vote today, down from yesterday when we had 17.50% ;  #1 has 25.69%,up from yesterday when they had 25.53%.  There's now a 8.28% gap (8.03% yesterday) which, hopefully, we can close in with just a week of heavy voting. We're now at #114 nationally; same as yesterday when we were #114.  The WV #1 shelter is at #56 nationally (yesterday #59); now 58 spots ahead of us; it was 55 spots ahead of us yesterday. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf.  Please, let's keep up the surge.

PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRRS

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.
