Here’s another update from Linda… Hi Donny!
Here is my monthly update!! I’m taking a break from report cards, and since I’m away next weekend , the update is coming early!
November has been a FABULOUS month!!!!!
* 1) I applied for and won the 2010 Animal Grant from Buy and Sell Magazine of $6000.00 worth of FREE advertising!!!
* 2) The Langley Times ran a FULL PAGE article on the MAD program!
* 3) On November 6th, I travelled to Nanaimo and did a spot about our rescue group on a local (SHAW tv) station.
* 4) On November 14, CTV news did a segment on BC Chihuahua Rescue and MAD!!!!! This is a MAJOR news station in Canada!!
* 5) Christie Legally (Animal Welfare Advocacy Coalition) posted my letter that I have written to the Victoria, Langley and Nanaimo Councils regarding the ban of puppies in pet stores.
* 6) I have heard from the city council from each of these cities that the letter will be a point of discussion at the next meeting.
* 7) Since Vegas we have 12 new foster families, 26 dogs adopted out, I have answered 208 inquiries about Rescue, and processed 58 applications for dogs.
* 8) The MAD supporters slideshow is updated! Click Here
* 9) The M.A.D. About Rescue Facebook Membership is now up to 1352 Members who continually network to save dogs around the world!!
* 10) And of course we continue to fundraise with our M.A.D Jewellery Line!
* 11) Next week I will be in Nanaimo for our Pet Photo shoot with Santa for a fundraiser!!
December should be a slower month as we take a period of time and not adopt out dogs during the Christmas season, as we do not want to promote giving dogs as a Christmas present.
So for now, you have been updated!!
