Sasha has news to share

Hello my friends, while I was out taking a walk today I came across a p-mail message from some of my neighborhood friends. I would like to pass it on to you. Since I can't send it by p-mail I will have Mommy type it for me. It came originally from The Animal Rescue Site(animalrescuesite.com) You may have already read it but it can't hurt to pass it along again. Animal shelters always need help financially. I was thinking that perhaps if we all went together and voted for one site, we may have a chance of one site winning some money. Of course we can all go individually to our favorite sites, I just thought it might have more impact if we all banded together and kept voting daily for the same site. I don't know, please let me know what you think.
"Beginning today and each day through December 20th, you can cast your vote for your favorite participating Petfinder.com shelter or rescue group. You could help that shelter win one of three big prizes, which include a $3,000 grant for third place; $5,000 grant for second place; and a $20,000 Grand Prize grant.
In addition to those grants, we're offering a pair of $2,000 judged prizes for the most touching story and photo from a shelter. We know there are plenty of heartwarming tales of rescued animals out there, so if you work at a participating Petfinder.com rescue organization, visit our
story page to share your favorite story and photo today!
The prizes don't end there. There will be weekly $1,000 grants given, plus $1,000 prizes given to top vote-getters in each of the 50 states, and Washington D.C., the top two organizations in Canada and one pet shelter or organization located outside North America. Every vote counts so don't hesitate:
Start today!
Get the word out and send our
$100,000 Shelter+ Challenge e-card to up to 20 of your friends and family members at a time. Spread the word, cast your vote and help animals in need today!"
licks and sniffs, Sasha
