Could I spare a minute of your time?

Thursday, June 23, 2011

I'm passionate about a lot of things, and one of those things happens to be loving dogs.  At least once a week along one of my drives, I will pass a dog on the side of the road.  It hurts my heart to see them.  However, I keep driving and pray they have a home and do not get hit.

But, if Ashley Owen Hill was to pass that dog, she would turn around and see what she could do to help.  It's her number one passion and you can click here to read why she started this rescue.  Whether it's giving them some food and water or picking them up and taking them back to her Lucky Dog Rescue — she makes sure that dog is cared for, no matter what kind of shape the dog is in!

Today, I'm asking you to give me one minute of your time.  Care2 is giving away $15,000 to "America's Favorite Animal Shelter" and Lucky Dog Rescue could be the winner.  As of last night, Lucky Dog Rescue was 2,000 votes behind the shelter in 1st place.  So, if you will — click here and vote for Lucky Dog Rescue.  You will be asked to give your name and email address.  After you submit your ballot, they will send you an email to confirm your vote.  PLEASE, confirm your vote.  That is the only way it counts.

The rescue pups at Lucky Dog thank you, Ashley Owen Hill thanks you, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!  And, if you want to give me an early birthday present — share this blog with your fellow blog followers so we can get even more votes for Lucky Dog Rescue!

Thanks y'all!!!
