Some of you know, we adopted Rocker from a lady here who rescues dogs that are sick and homeless. Rocker had skin problems, been scratched up by wild cats, and could barely stand up when she found him under a tree. She nursed him back to health and three months later we took him. I don't have to tell you how much we love this dog and how much joy he has brought to our lives. If you hop around blog-land you may have seen calls for donations to A Place to Bark-Bernie Berlin's shelter.
Here's the scoop copied and pasted from her website....
HELP A PLACE TO BARK WIN A $50,000 GRANT !!!!!
A Place to Bark is participating in a challenge being offered Six Degrees, partnered with the Case Foundation and Parade on America's Giving Challenge. The four USA charity badges that have the most unique donors through the America's Giving Challenge will receive $50,000 for their cause. We are entered in this contest and need the help of each and every one of you. The Challenge ends on January 31, 2008 at 3:00 pm EST. Each $10 donation gets us one step closer to winning a grant of $50,000!!!
So please, go to A Place to Bark, follow the instructions, and donate. You can also see photos of the animals you will help by donating. If it weren't for people like Bernie, there would be no Rockers. Let's help her to give these animals a safe and loving shelter. Remember---You only have until January 31st at 3:00 EST!!! Thanks in advance, you guys are awesome!--XX, Candie
