7 DAY COUNTDOWN



GRACIE + BORU
ONLY A WEEK TO GO Hey Hounders,
Yeah, we know, we've been quiet for over a week now.  It's the darn renovating stuff; keeps dad a bit busy so we don't get much computer time 'cept to vote in the Shelter Challenge.  Speaking of which, we have received a note from Ms. Carol up at AHGRRS that we're passing along to ya'll.  Believe us when we say that the fact that AHGRRS has made it to the #1 West Virginia shelter is due, in no small part, because of the voting of each and evryone of youse guys out there in the blogosphere.  There are only 7 voting days left (THANK GOODNESS!).  Voting end this upcoming Sunday, March 21st, at Midnight Pacific Daylight Time (Los Angeles time).  So let's all keep the surge going for one more week.  We dug ourselves out of the hole and closed a significant deficeit to make it to #1 less than 2 weeks ago.

SHELTER CHALLENGE VOTING STATUS:

As of 3/14/2011, AHGRRS can say "WE'RE STILL #1." We can stay at #1 if ya'll don't give up your effort---- VOTE; just 7 voting days remain. We've got 17.86% of the WV vote today, UP from 3/4/11 when we had 16.15% ; #2 has 16.38%, DOWN from  3/04/11 when they had 16.38%. There's now a 1.75% gap (0.57% on 3/04) which, hopefully, we can open further with continued heavy voting. We're now at #116 nationally; UP from 3/04 when we were #128. The WV #2 shelter is at #134 nationally, UP two spots (3/04 they were at #132); so they're now 18 spots behind us; it was 4 spots behind us on 3/04). We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf, Voting ends at midnight Pacific Daylight Time on Sunday night March 20th. -Hallelujah!

LET'S KEEP UP THE SURGE.

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?

We been voting, early and often. And often if we vote early, we can vote again - but no guarantees! It is strange, but kind of like playing the slot machines.

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.
