Thanksgiving Update - More Dogs Saved - Increasing Veterinarian Costs

Hi folks,

Happy Thanksgiving! We are just about back to normal after Rich's back surgery. That means we are taking in new dogs and with that comes new challenges. Our biggest challenge is keeping up with the vet bills here. We realize that due to the economy most people have limited funds for donations, but we need your help more than ever so that this rescue can keep helping those Pei who need us the most. We have never turned down a dog because of medical needs, and we hope that day never comes. Please know that no donation is too small and that 100% of your donation will go to the needs of our "kids" We are all volunteers-no one is paid who helps this rescue. There are several ways to donate-Paypal through our website or a check or through your employer. Perhaps the below information will help.

Fall Update - - Remember the Rescue in your Holiday Giving

Hello fellow Shar Pei lovers. The weather is cooling off a little bit in Redding as we get ready for fall. It's a beautiful time of year here with the fall colors coming on. Rich's back surgery went very well, and he has taken back all his duties of caring for our "kids". We did not take in any new dogs while he was recovering, but recently have taken in two-Marlow and Dorthy. You can read more about them by going to "Our Kids".

We will be taking in two more Pei this week-Bertha and Simon from a shelter in the Los Angeles area. As soon as they arrive in Redding and we get to know them a little bit, we will be adding them to "Our Kids" as well. We have a lot of wonderful Pei here who are all looking for forever homes. This is a great time of year to adopt-after summer vacations and before the holiday season begins. We will soon be at the point of not taking in new dogs until we are able to place some that we have. We only have so much space, and the kennels will soon be full again. Unfortunately, that will leave some dogs with nowhere to go.

We would like to thank all of you who have helped us in so many ways to help this rescue continue to save Shar Pei lives. We appreciate the many ways you have come through for our "kids" in terms of financial support, time spent updating webpages, and emotional support when we need it. Running a rescue means being on an emotional roller coaster that definitely has its ups and downs, but it's a worthwhile ride!

Please consider adopting and/or referring us to your friends who might be interested in having a Pei in their lives.

Greetings from Northern CA!

Greetings from Northern CA!

We hope you are all enjoying the summer season. It has brought some changes here in Redding. Rich had much needed back surgery last week so he will be recovering for the next two months. Please be patient with us in terms of replying to emails and phone messages. It has always been just the two of us here to run this rescue, but for the next couple of months we are down to one person.

We hope you will understand better any delays in communication-we will do the best we can.

National Shar-Pei Rescue Wall of Pictures and Stories - Please add your stories and pictures

Dear Shar-Pei Rescuers,

It is that time of year again to ask for stories and pictures from your adopters about the Shar-Pei they have adopted from you. Nationals will be in Chattanooga, Tennessee in September this year. I will again for the third time be doing the Wall of Rescues. It is very important to rescue that the visitors to Nationals and participants see the much needed work that the rescues are doing to save abandoned and abused Shar-Pei. I don't need to tell you how overwhelmed we all are and have been for some time. You are living it. Hopefully the "Wall "will nudge those that are attending to get information on Shar-Pei, to adopt a dog from rescue. I am usually near the "Wall" to talk to people and to tell them about how great our rescue dogs are, when they are looking at it.

I would appreciate it if you would forward this e-mail to your adopters, so they may participate if they would like to do so. I am also attaching a picture of two of the many panels I did for the 2010 Nationals in Kansas. I did balloons and sunflowers {"Wizard of Oz" connection for Kansas}.

Guidelines for adopter's stories.

Tell about your dog/dogs you adopted from a Shar-Pei rescue. {In memory of Shar-Pei and/or those you have now.} Please include your name, you may do first name only if you wish, name of your dog/dogs that you adopted from a Shar-Pei rescue, and the name of the rescue.

Please limit your words to 250 or less per dog. I know, we could all write a book about those wonderful family members!

I would appreciate 3x5 pictures to 5x7, the largest. To get them to fit the "frames" I make, those sizes are best, so I don't need to resize all the pictures. I also retype many of the stories to get them to fit also. As you will see on the panel below, I sometimes cut the dogs out and use them that way. Making the "Wall" is very time intensive, { at least for me, Lol } so please send as soon as possible. The cut-off date for receiving stories and pictures is July 14, 2012.

Address for mail:

Jane Wake GA Shar-Pei Rescue 4283 Parish Trace Marietta, GA 30066

If mailing, please include your e-mail address or phone number in case I need to get in touch with you. I will use the following e-mail address to keep them out of my daily e-mails, so I don't miss any of them.

PoundKennel2@aol.com That is Pound Kennel 2 all pushed together.

Thanks for participating,
