The Animal Rescue Site Shelter Challenge and our chance to win another $1000 for our animals has started again as of TODAY! Just go to www.animalrescuesite.com and then to the “Shelter Challenge” tab on the right of the main box of info. Once there either type in our name or select Alabama and then type in Wetumpka to find our shelter to vote for us. If you have already voted for us it is even easier as our shelter will automatically pop up on the screen for you to vote for. And remember – You can vote once each day on any computer or smart phone you have access to – work, home, school, etc. You can also set this up so you receive an email each day to remind you to vote. With our supporters help we were #1 in all four rounds of the Shelter Challenge last year so won a total of $4000 to help our animals! We want to jump out of the starting gate today in 1st place so please ask your friends, classmates, family and coworkers to vote for us – costs nothing, no registration required and just a couple of clicks every day will get us to another $1000 for our deserving critters! This round goes until March 18th and you can also check out other ways for us to win even more money in The Shelter Challenge at the link above.
Many thanks to everyone who helped us in Ruby Tuesday’s “Give Back” promotion by eating at the Wetumpka Ruby Tuesday on Friday and taking a Give Back flier with them. We do not yet know how much was earned for our shelter, but expect a nice check from their corporate headquarters in the near future! Thanks Ruby Tuesday!!!
Now is the time to stop by the shelter for your chance to win $10,000! Our “Getting Down with the Dawgs” Draw Down is coming up on 25 February, so don’t delay getting your ticket before they are all gone. For $100 per ticket you will have a one in 300 opportunity to win $10,000 and help our shelter. Besides the chance to win $10,000, every 25th ticket drawn will win other great prizes. In a drawdown the winner of the $10,000 is the last (300th) ticket left on the board. Besides all the great prizes each ticket holder and their guest will also get a delicious buffet dinner and beverages, and a great evening of fun while also helping the shelter. To get down with our dogs mark your calendar for Saturday, February 25, 2012 at Bonnie Crest Country Club, 1410 Federal Drive, Montgomery. On the 25th, Bonnie Crest opens at 5:00 pm, the Buffet Dinner begins at 6:00 pm and the Draw Down begins at 7:00 pm. Tickets are moving fast, so don’t delay. We are open at the shelter at 255 Central Plank Road in Wetumpka so you can stop by for your ticket(s) Mon-Thu 8-4; Fri 8-5 and Sat 8-3.

Have you been to our Thrift Store lately? The Tails End Thrift Store is a critical source of revenue for our shelter and you just never know what treasures you will find there. We have clothing, linens, books, appliances, home decorations, furniture, toys and so much more! Our prices simply cannot be beat and every dollar earned in the Thrift Store comes into our shelter so that we can keep helping animals in need. The store is open for shopping Wed, Thu & Fri’s from 9-3 and is run completely by volunteers. We can always use more volunteers to help us sort and price and sell everything so if you would like to become one of our wonderful Thrift Store Volunteers please stop by the store and find out how you can help. And with spring cleaning not so far in the future please remember that all donations to our Thrift Store are tax deductible and your donations translate to sales and more funds for our pets.
