Prints can be mailed to us at P.O. Box 316, Augusta, AR 72101. Include return address so we can mail them back to you.
This has been our main fundraiser for the last 3 years so SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!! If you are interested in being a sponsor or know of a business or individual who might be, please let us know. Last year all printing costs were paid for by the sponsors, so sales of the calendars went totally to the fur babies! Each sponsor will have an ad in the calendar!
THANK YOU FOR BEING OUR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTING US!!
Ross Ford Toyota, Eldridge Supply, Mike and Lisa Chappell Farms, Bank of Augusta, Bank of McCrory and Merchants and Planters Bank.
Because of their sponsorships, ALL of the proceeds from the first 200 calendars will go towards buying food and paying for all the vet services and supplies we need to get these dogs and cats off the streets and into forever homes!
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization who helps the homeless dogs of Woodruff County "Get A Life". We manage the adoptions at the Augusta Shelter and rescue dogs from the McCrory and Patterson dog pounds and off the country roads. We place them in foster homes and provide all vet expenses to get them ready for their forever homes. We operate on donations and adoption fees and with your help, we can provide these dogs a comfortable and hopefully temporary place to stay and continue our successful adoption program. To us, rescue isn't just about the dogs and cats. It is also about bringing joy and happiness into lives of adopters who have a void that only a furry friend can fill!
Adapted from "The Star Thrower"
by Loren Eiseley
A man was jogging down the beach after a major storm had just come through the area. He was dismayed by the huge number of starfish that the storm had washed up on the beach. He thought that there was nothing he could do because of the immense numbers. As he continued down the beach he saw an old man throw something into the water. As he got closer, he saw the old man walk a little farther down the beach, bend over, pick up a starfish and throw it back into the water. As the jogger approached, the old man stopped again, bent over, picked up another starfish and was about to throw it into the water.
The jogger stopped and asked "Why are you doing that? There are thousands of starfish on the beach. You can't possibly make a difference." The old man looked at the starfish, threw it back into the water, then replied, "I made a difference to that one."
This donate button can be used to pay adoption fees or make a donation. Many of our dogs go to other rescues fully vetted with no reimbursements. That is why donations are so important!
