ANIMAL SHELTER NEEDS YOUR VOTE

There is a contest that continues until some time in December. It would mean some money for deserving animal rescues.

Go to:

www.theanimalrescuesite.com

I would appreciate a vote for the Perkins County Animal Shelter in Grant, Nebraska.

You can vote once a day and it takes just a few seconds.

This is a no-kill shelter operated by the veterinarian in Grant. This is a small town of maybe 1,200 (sorry Grant residents if I'm way off), and this is a sparsely populated part of Nebraska, so they'll need a lot of outside votes. They are 9th in Nebraska right now.

They took a dog for me, and they fairly often help by taking animals from our animal shelter, which is unfortunately NOT a no-kill shelter. They don't adopt dogs out until they are pretty sure the match is a good one.

I'd sure appreciate your vote for this deserving shelter if you would care to participate.

I'll vote for your site, but last year a local shelter was involved in something like this.... its small, very poor, and it led for months until a large (and I am sure deserving ) shelter won in the last week after a radio advert.... I hate to sound petty but it would have be so great for this shelter to have won.... it was heartbraking to be in lead for MONTHS, then lose .... so I guess I'm saying don't get your hopes up...

Any of those who have rescued an animal, thus providing a second chance at life, know the rewards of rescuing a mistreated, unwanted, unloved and uncared for animal...you can include me in that count. Count me in for a vote a day for the Perkins County Animal Shelter. Just added my vote and will continue to do so on a daily basis!

As a side note, being the internet shopping junkie that I am, I browsed the site and found several pieces of fun "fashion jewelry", all of course with a cat or dog theme. The Animal Rescue Site funds "bowls of food" for animals living in sactuaries and shelters throughout the United States with every purchase. (The amount of such depends on the purchase price of the item.)

I support your efforts Pat to help make a difference for the Perkins County Animal Shelter.

Thank you so much for your votes everyone. Got my vote in for today.

The Perkins County Animal Shelter truly does deserve the support (as I'm sure they all do). But she operates on a small budget and fundraisers to support her work with the shelter.

Wish there would be some way that one day I'd be asking for support for a no-kill shelter in my town, but that's ages away, if ever. In the meantime, thanks for supporting PCAS.

I've written to the shelter to see if they happen to get any actual number updates. I'll let you know when I hear something. It may take a while; this is a one-doctor small clinic so she doesn't get to e-mails for several days.

Hi Pat....

I've been voting everyday, but your Shelter
certainly seems to be stuck in 6th place....
Need an infusion of new voters to go to
the site each day.
That's a lot of money that could be won,
and used for the care and support of
many homeless, helpless animals.

Come on all you animal lovers out there!!!!

Voted today! Instead of having to type in words to confirm that you're a real live human being voting, aren't those animal pictures cute? Today I had a mouse. I wonder what would happen if you thought you were looking at a rat instead of a mouse? Well, anyway, my vote counted.

I had an e-mail from menopausin (love that user name!) who had voted for the Perkins Co. shelter, but she also wanted me to post this as a reminder to vote for another worthwhile project.

"I can't post because I only have a regular subscription. I voted and will do so daily until it's over. Here's one you can vote on. Please post it in the forum.

It's http://freekibble.com

There's also a place to click on that page to feed cats, too. A 12 yo girl started it and it's really going places! Literally around the world! Pass the link on and I will yours, also! Thanks!"

I have clicked on the freekibble link numerous times, but not recently. It is true that it was the project of a 12-year-old girl. So as long as you're voting for one, you might as well vote for another!

Thanks for the suggestion menopausin.
