Leftover Pets Voting
Peeps, it’s that time of the year again. My step-daughter, Dr. Amber, needs your help again this year. Actually she needs your fingers. No money (unless you have a craving to send some to her,) needed, no personal information needed. Just your fingers.
Since last year I have had some pretty cool people join the Coffeypot team, so I will take a minute to explain what is going on. As you know I make a dog run to NY once or twice a month to deliver 20 to 30 dogs and puppies to no-kill shelters for adoption. This is done through Amber's non-profit organization, Leftover Pets.
Amber is a veterinarian and travels all over North Georgia doing low cost spaying and neutering and minor medical treatments for dogs and cats for the county shelters. She is listed on Pet Finders.com and other pet adoption sites and is one dedicated lady when it comes to animals.
Each year there is a contest where people sign on to the Pet Finders website. The shelter (which Amber also has at her home, which has plenty of room with dog runs, modern cages, etc.) The shelter with the most votes in the state gets some amount of money, and the number on in the country gets bunches of money.
Last year Amber came in 3rd in the state (not bad for a two person operation) out of 11,000, and 81st in the country of thousands of shelters. Much of her success came from my peeps on the blog and I am asking for your help again this year. You can vote once a day until Dec. 20th. Any and all votes will be appreciated more than you will ever know. Much of her business is from donations and contest like this one.
If you are willing to help out go to http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/home.faces?siteId=3 and enter the name Leftover Pets in Georgia, city Braselton and enter. Usually all you have to do is put left and the city and state and it will work, too. That will save some keying on your part. Then when her site comes up, just key the VOTE button and it is done.
Thank you for any thing you do.
