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?
