    I’ve just checked the winner list for the latest Shelter Challenge..Congratulations on getting the $1000 grant!!

    Shine on, my friend!! Cheers~ :D

    • You are so kind and supportive. I wish this were the case and see that the site is confusing on how it posted the results. Where it says $1000 is the overall prize. My shelter came in #32. The two top winners were from other shelters. If you go to where it says, “view contest” you’ll see the winners. The summer contest resulted in SPARC receiving $100 in free vaccinations which is great. The winter contest, I don’t see they received anything. The contest is on again and here’s the website: http://www.shelterchallenge.com/home

      If I’m completely off the deep end and missed where they did win $1000 could you send me that link so I can jump up and down, after I whack myself for missing it? Again, the site was confusing to me and others as well in how it posted the results.

      Hugs and love to you!

    HI Paulette, I would be honoured if you will accept the following award: http://kevs-domain.net/2014/02/01/and-the-versatile-blogger-award-goes-to/

  9. I am a dog lover and have grown up with them from when I was a wee small boy. I got my first guide dog, Nixon in my early twenties and am now the owner of a lovely brindle lab/retriever guide dog called Trigger.

  12. Paulette, my precious, I had to make unsubscribing on Shelter Challenge.
    It seemed to me the challenge was over, right?
    I left my reply on the thread and had enabled reception of notifications for other reviews; well, some users were quarreling among themselves and this already did not like (they had lost the true sense of that challenge; Animals Welfare!).
    Please let me know if/when the challenge will start again, ’cause I will still have my votes to SPARC! I don’t care diatribes and fake animalists. I care about honest people and welfare of animals. I’m so sorry that SPARC is not among the winners! But all the same you won! You are precious, sis. Your work, your honesty, your love for animals are your win.
    Be yourself, sis <3

    • “Please let me know if/when the challenge will start again, ’cause I will still GIVE my votes to SPARC”, not “HAVE”! Oh, I’m sorry! My English is a true trash… :(

    • I understand. Sorry to hear this happened. Thank you for all the loving support you give to animals and your very kind heart. <3
