Well, that was some way to kick off January 2012 – we just took in four French Bulldogs in four days, and we’re all feeling a bit overwhelmed.
So, here’s what we need. We are looking for one or two foster homes, preferably in Southern Ontario, who are able to take these two adults in. We know they’re good with other dogs, but we have no idea about cats or kids. You’ll need to be willing to drive them to their vet appointments. We also need help with transports – can you help us to get these dogs from their current situation to their new foster homes? The couple looking after them would like to see them placed as soon as possible, so there is a degree of urgency. If you can foster and/or transport, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I know everyone has been waiting for an update on Pierre, the little Frenchie we brought over from Korea. We’re pleased to be able to share a note from Pierre’s new mom, Lucy.
Mark November 26th down in your calendar, because you’ll be spending it at the Caledon Kennel Club Dog Show, cheering on the French Bulldogs!
Eastern Canada French Bulldog Club is holding a supported entry, in conjunction with the Caledon Kennel Club. This means we’ll be offering some fab prizes for the class winners, including trophies and some spiffy rosettes! Better still, every Frenchie entered will be getting a super little gift bag, courtesy of Pets 4 Life and Poochini’s Barkery!
Even if you are a total dog show novice, you can still come out and have a good time! We’ll have dog show guides ready to hang out with you at ring side and walk you through the procedures. Within no time, you’ll be bragging about how you can spot a great bitch at two hundred paces, and how your pick for puppy was the best of the day!
Be sure to bring some cash, because we’ll also be having a day long Raffle for Rescue! Buy tickets, and get chances to win one of the prizes on offer, ranging from a custom photography session to daycare to gorgeous collar and coats, all courtesy of our sponsors.
We need your stuff, so if you have something we can raffle for rescue, please contact us, at email@example.com . Your donations are what allow us to help dogs like Ema, Pierre and Mi Sun, so please dig through all your stuff, and donate what you can! Items do not have to be Frenchie specific, or even canine specific!
Ideas for raffle items include:
– restaurant dinner coupons
– gift cards to stores
– Gift baskets
– anything else you can think of!
Select items will be available for an online raffle pre show, so get ready to do some shopping!
More details on the show, including an entry form, can be found here – http://www.caledondogs.com/showsandtrials.html#2011_Conformation_Shows
More details on our great prizes, including a sponsor’s list, coming this week.
Thanks to everyone who has donated so far to the Mi Sun’s airfare fund. We’re just over 1/3 of the way there. With time being so short for her at the Korean shelter, I’d like to be able to send them her airfare by the end of the week, rather than leave her sitting in the shelter for another month.
Please, please – even if you can’t donate, you can still help Mi Sun by spreading the word about her. Remember, supporting rescue doesn’t just involve giving money – you can also be a booster by spreading the word through Facebook or Twitter, or on email lists you subscribe to.
You can also donate items that we can raffle, or sell on eBay – and remember, they don’t even have to be French Bulldog or even dog themed. Anything we can raffle or auction off can help to raise funds for Mi Sun, and for other dogs like her! To donate an item for auction or raffle, please contact me by email, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s get Mi Sun out of Korea, and started on her new life!
Thank you to the following friends of Mi Sun – your donations are appreciated, and so is your support!
