PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE SHELTER CHALLENGE

Hey Hounders,


Homer J. here.   
Well everybody likes a good news story so here's a GReat news story.  Not much else to post tonight or over this weekend.  We need to catch up on reading ya'lls blogs.  But please don't forget to vote as often as possible for AHGRRS in The Animal Rescue Site's Shelter Challenge.  We've been creeping up on the competition and would like to continue to do so. Anyway, we've had input from a few followers that say that we can increase our vote tally in The Animal Rescue Site's Shelter Challenge.  If your PC has multiple web browser software installed, you can vote from the PC on each of the different browsers.  You can cast a vote from MS Explorer/Bing, from Google Chrome, from Mozilla/Firefox etc.  And you can vote more than once a day if you allow 8-12 hours between voting and you can vote from different PCs, laptops and mobile devices.  (Did I say that right, dad?)   Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary is still in second place in the West Virginia quest for the $1,000.00 grant BUT we've been closing on the state leader for the last 3 days now.  So please, please, please...let's keep it up.  You've done a lot but now I need ya'll to do more.  You've been trying hard but now I need ya to try harder.  It's more important to vote as much as you can and as often as you can (according to Hamish and Sophie that's called Chicago voting) in the Shelter Challenge.

=======================

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. Actually, you can vote in the early morning and then again in the evening; you can also vote from different browser such as MS-Explorer, Yahoo, Firefox and Google Chrome. Voting will run for 10 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. 
In the West Virginia state competition, as of 2/11/2011, AHGRRS is in 2nd place but finally starting to close the gap 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 17.52% of the WV vote today, up from yesterday when we had 17.41% ;  #1 has 24.93% and yesterday they had 24.62%.  There's now a 7.41% gap (7.21% yesterday) which we, hopefully, can close in with just a week of heavy voting. We're now at #115 nationally; yesterday we were #117.  The WV #1 shelter is at #64 nationally (yesterday #61); now 51 spots ahead of us; it was 53 spots ahead of us yesterday. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf.  Please, let's keep up the surge.
 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO HELP
VOTE
AND PLEASE TRY YOUR DARNEDEST TO GET OTHERS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS, TO ALSO VOTE

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.
