ALL GAVE SOME; - SOME GAVE ALL


 THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE ALDO.

"THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE"
That's what we barked and meowed at our dad this morning. We send that same sentiment along to all of the other veteran's around the world -" THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE." Five small words that mean so much. 

The veterans around the world didn't make national policy, they simply served their countries. Don't put political blame on service men and women; just be thankful that someone is willing to pay the bill because Freedom Isn't Free

It was called The Great War, The War To End All Wars; it was the first war to envelope the world.  Because humanity was naive enough to let it happen a second time it became necessary to number the world conflicts; hence it is now known as World War One.  It ended with an Armistice Treaty signed in a railroad car in Paris, FR on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour of 1918.  At the behest of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, Nov 11th was to become a day of remembrance of that armistice.  Now, in the United States, it has evolved into the one day a year that is set aside to think about the sacrifices made by our veteran's of all of our conflicts and for manning the line during times of peace.  Whether it's called Armistice Day, Remembrance Day or Veteran's Day in your homeland matters not; it's a time to thank those of your country's men and women and service animals who have served their countries.
All gave some;
some gave all.

As we honor our blessed veterans, I think of my father who served during WWII in the Pacific Theater - a member of the Greatest Generation.

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.
