I would expect that many of our forum members know that I am heavily involved with Maltese (dog) Rescue. I am asking for help from the members. This will not cost anything and is definitely NOT A SCAM...

Please help our American Maltese Rescue. Our rescue organization rescues Maltese from hellish puppy mill conditions, from high-kill shelters and provides a means for Maltese owners who cannot keep their pets to find safe loving homes for these animals.

Judy and Richard Crowe, alone, have had over fostered over thirty Maltese during 2010, including 18 puppies who were born into freedom from mothers that have been rescued from those terrible puppy mills. These adult Maltese and puppies are now living in their “furever” homes with families who love them.

There is a voting contest which, if we get the most votes, will earn our organization cash awards. One hundred percent of our money goes to medical expenses for sick and abused Maltese who have been rescued and for the neutering and spaying of Maltese who will be adopted. All transportation costs and food for these rescued Maltese are born by the individual volunteer members who are involved in the rescue.

This is NOT A SCAM, rather a legitimate contest aimed at getting rescue organizations into the public notice.

You can help by accessing:

This will bring you to American Maltese Rescue
Enter: Vote
You will now see a picture of an animal: enter the type of animal “skunk”, “goat”, etc. as appropriate

You can vote once each day. Please help us gain some funding to help our sick and injured rescue Maltese.

Here are some of the puppies "Born Into Freedom During 2010...



Here is a pregnant female when we received her from a high kill shelter...



Her puppies were born into a warm and clean environment...



Her puppies were adopted into loving"furever" homes and here is what she looked like after a few months of TLC at our home. We have kept her as one of our family...

I can vouch that "The Animal Rescue Site" is a legitimate site. I vote daily for a friend's shelter in Costa Rica. Small rescue groups depend on the grant money. The "Shelter Challenge" pays $1,000 to the first and second place winners.

Richard,

I'm sorry, but I can only vote for one shelter, if I were not already voting for my friend, I would vote for yours. Only 3 days left for this challenge. GOOD LUCK!

Hey Richard,

If you want to re-edit the e-mail a bit and state that you have my blessing, you are welcome to do so. I certainly have seen all of the work you have done and would be willing to vouch for you on that level alone.

Cheers
James

PS I will put this on today's FB page.

It would be great if forum members would share/link the FB link as a means of passing the word around.

Good luck, Richard.




That is a very generous offer James. I have not posted about this for the same reason Richard was hesitant to. It's not really photography related. Thank you for allowing this thread, that site does a lot to help shelters out.
