If you weren’t able to join us at Wishbone Studio on Zelda Road in Montgomery on Friday night you truly missed out on an awesome Rock ‘n Roll evening! We cannot thank the bands Wishbone & Free Flight enough, as well as Rick Hansen & Wishbone Studio, as the house was packed, everyone had a great time and as a result our shelter benefited to the tune of over $1200! Thank you so much to everyone who made this first time event such a huge success and to ALL who came out for a super evening of great music, fun with friends and fundraising to help our shelter! We can see a repeat performance in the future so stay tuned to our Facebook or look for ‘Wishbone’ band on Facebook and become a fan!
Have you signed up to be a volunteer with our shelter but feel like you are missing out on updates? We have a number of volunteers whose email addresses are bouncing back to us or whose phone numbers appear to be disconnected, so if you have changed your email or phone number in the past year or so, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Charline Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 334-202-1381. And if you are reading this in a newspaper or via our Facebook but not getting an email at home, please also let us know if you have changed your email address by sending us a note to email@example.com .
Weather forecasts say we may have a rough weather day this Wednesday so PLEASE make sure your pets are inside or safely contained so they don’t end up scared and lost as a result of any storm. After any bad weather day our phone tends to ring off the hook about lost pets so if you simply can’t or won’t bring your pet inside, please also make sure you have a rabies tag and/or some kind of identification tag on your pet so neighbors, us or even a complete stranger can help get your pet home. And we just cannot say how well microchips work to get your pet home if they are brought to a veterinarian or shelter where they can be scanned. Most important, however, is to make sure your contact information is current with the microchip company as a bad phone number is a dead end for us in regards to getting your pet back home to you quickly.
We still have many tickets to our 4th Annual “Getting Down with the Dawgs” Draw Down on Saturday, 23 February 2013 your chance to win $10,000! Each $100 ticket gives you a 1 in 300 opportunity to win $10,000; OR a week’s stay for FOUR at Mountain Loft Resort in Gatlinburg, TN; OR, a week’s stay for SIX at Paradise Isle Resort in Gulf Shores, AL; OR other great door prizes! Besides a chance to win big, each ticket holder and guest will also get a delicious buffet dinner and beverages at Bonnie Crest Country Club, 1410 Federal Drive, Montgomery! Doors will open at 5 pm, dinner begins at 6 pm and the Drawdown starts at 7 pm. Tickets are on sale at the shelter so don’t delay – get your ticket(s) now or buy one as a gift! And you do not have to be an individual to buy a ticket – what business, charity or civic/social group couldn’t use $10,000! Perhaps get ten people to chip in $10 each, or five people to chip in $20 each to buy a ticket in the name of the organization and then just decide which two people to attend. Heck – we would love to see a sister sheltering organization or other great group win $10,000! For more information call Charline Pope at 334-202-1381, call us at the shelter at 334-567-3377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
