Scotty needs your help! NEW!
Our Berner "Scotty" is in a contest for a spot on New Mexico's Pet Lottery Scratcher. To do this he needs to receive the most votes during the voting period. So, please help us by voting for Scotty once each day between January 24 and February 4, 2011. I'll donate 10¢ per vote for the first 5,000 votes (Max $500.00) to Berner Garde Foundation.
Type Scotty in the search box and click on "Search" to bring up Scotty's page. Click on the circle underneath the dog's photo. Then click on 'Save Vote' at the bottom or top of the page.. Remember you may vote again tomorrow and every day between now and February 4, 2011.
Thanks for your help.

The Animal Rescue Site - "Fund Food for Animals"
It really is only one click away. Feed an animal in need, for free, every day. Over ten million animals are abused, neglected or abandoned yearly. You can help each day with a free click! Visit The Animal Rescue Site daily and click the purple "Fund Food for Animals" button. That simple action gives food to an abandoned or abused animal. There is no cost to you! Funding for nutritious food is paid by site sponsors and goes to nonprofit animal welfare organizations who use it to feed animals living in their shelters and sanctuaries. The Animal Rescue Site was launched in July of 2002 and has generated millions of bowls of food for rescued animals since then. With your help, many more animals will benefit in 2006! It all depends on the number of people who visit the site. Please click at The Animal Rescue Site once a day and forward this information on so more people can help give animals the happy, healthy lives they deserve.Together, we can make a difference for vulnerable pets and wildlife!

National Canine Cancer Foundation
To most dog owners, your dog is part of your family. And if your dog had cancer wouldn't you do everything you could to save their life. That is what we are asking for. Your help to save the life of a dog stricken with cancer. And the best way to save their life is helping us pay for the development of new, innovative therapies, and treatments to fight cancer in dog. This means funding the research that will culminate in a cure for canine cancer. The sense of urgency is clear, yet it comes with the hope that we can reach our goal.
