BHS Paws on Parade - Join Our Team!

Tuesday, 26 July 2011

2010-GA_Staff_Holiday_300x214Mark your calendars now for the 18th annual Bangor Humane Society Paws on Parade on October 1, 2011. This is the main fundraising event for the Bangor Humane Society and is crucial for the many homeless pets in our region.

The Green Acres staff has formed a team to walk in Paws, but because several of us have to work in the store or kennel or teach training classes that day we need help filling out our team. We want a BIG presence so we are inviting you to join us as a member of the Green Acres Click! team. You can sign-up on line and even solicit donations from friends and family online through the BHS system. To join our team just go here: http://PawsOnParade.kintera.org/GAKS_Click

If you join our team and raise over $100 in donations by September 14th, we’ll have a Green Acres Click! T-shirt ready for you the day of the event. We’ll also have a prize for whoever raises the most above $100.

The walk begins at the public parking lot on the Bangor Waterfront and continues around the waterfront. For more information, check the BHS website at: http://www.bangorhumane.org/

Remembering Gus

Sunday, 10 July 2011

Gus-bJuly 10th marks the 7th year since our Cairn Terrier Gus (Laird Gustav MacMoose) crossed the rainbow bridge at the age of 13.5 years. He was the first dog that Paula and I had together and is probably the primary reason we do what we do today. Gus inspired me to start to learn about dog training and his behavioral quirks caused me to delve deeply into the idiosyncrasies of canine behavior. His unusual and frequent health problems were the reasons that Paula and I both started to learn more about nutrition and explore complementary and alternative healthcare, to the benefit of Gus, ourselves and many others. Like Toto to Dorothy, Gus was our companion on the road to our own personal and very wonderful Oz, Green Acres Kennel Shop. Thanks Gus! We miss you!

We'll throw you a bone...
