Vote For the One with the Unique Hair!

Photos from TIRR Facebook Page

NO, not Donald Trump -  but a wonderful Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback, supporters of Barkley and friends of mine. A couple in our blogging community are active in volunteer work there which is how we all met.  Jewel, the dog pictured above, looking for her furever home with the help of TIRR, is in a photo contest which you can vote on.

RPAL Pet Donation and Distribution Center is running the contest thanks to a very generous paper towel donation from the folks at Bounty, which will go to the winning entries (you'd be surprised how many paper towels a shelter can go through). The contest is from Sept 1st thru Sept 15th, you are welcome to vote daily for as many groups as you like and please share with friends and family, the more votes the greater the chance for that rescue or shelter to will WIN more of the "Bounty"

 1st Place:1 Pallet Bounty (288 Rolls)
 2nd Place: 3/4 Pallet Bounty (216 Rolls)
 3rd Place: 1/2 Pallet Bounty (144 Rolls)

 Cut and paste the link below to go to the contest on RPAL's Facebook Page.

If you select the pic of Jewel with her favorite ball by the red fire hydrant, you will be selecting TIRR for your vote. That means they may win a large supply of paper towels! Every little bit helps out, when you are a small rescue on a budget!

You can vote once EACH day until the 15th!

Thanks for your support!

    My darling angel Jade was half ridgeback and I adore these dogs (...tsk, I adore any dog, let's be honest here!)... and I think this is a great drive, but I don't go the phizog or any other such. Perhaps Abby can put her paw in on my behalf??? Pretty pawleeeeze... &*>

    Meanwhile, hope all the moving and shunting is going well! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
