Retired in Florida

As you may remember, we all packed up our stuff in August 2012 at the old Bumpass, VA house and made our way south to the high country of Lake Wales, FL.  Ya gotta remember that the lowest spot of land in CO is higher than the highest spot of land in FL.  We have discovered that all of Florida is a big sandy beach; some parts are close to the Gulf or the Atlantic but it's all sand.  Lake Wales is located in south central Florida; about 1 hour east of Tampa, 1 hour southwest of Orlando and adjacent to Winter Haven.  



It was a long trip but we all arrived safely but then things became a bit upset.  We'll get into that inthe next couple of installments.  We now number 7 dogs and 5 kitties; we've had both gains and losses. We have had both happy times and sad times.  Hopefully we will get back into a posting routine.

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.
