Kenneling Up for The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire

Hello Fellow New England ADVRiders

As many of you know I love animals and my future as the "Crazy Cat Lady" is imminent. On March 25th I will be Kennel-Up'd from 1-6pm to raise money for the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire http://www.rescueleague.org:


It's Time to Kennel Up for the Animals! Thursday, March 25th, 2010 1-6pm

On Thursday, March 25th, the League will hold its 2nd Annual Kennel Up Event. The goal of this fundraiser is to have 30 + people willing to join us at the Animal Rescue League of NH for one day. During this event, attendees will be educated about the mission, goals, needs and what drives us to continue our good work with the animals. The attendees will be asked to raise their own "Adoption Fee," which will allow for their "adoption" or release at the end of the day.

Now I know many of you would pay money to see me put in a kennel for a few hours so please support my efforts to raise $1,000 for the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire. If I reach $1,000 before Mar 25th, I will wear a studded dog collar and post pics

So please help out. You can donate by visiting my page at www.firstgiving.com/gracepreston or you can contact me if you'd like to mail a check (mgraced@comcast.net)


Thank you and I will be posting photos and info on March 25th while I am "Kennel-Up'd" :-)

Hi Grace, Hope you don't mind me asking a few questions: Is this a Wifi equipped Kennel? Is the kennel made by Touratech? Where exactly do you pee and who cleans it up afterwards? Do you bark at your cats at home? Is this tax deductible?

My sister does stuff like this....now I'm going to ask her about kennelling...

Sounds great!

LOL!
The kennel will have wifi as I will be posting pics. I will be in the kennel on and off for 5 hrs. It is tax deductible. And it is a great cause. Please all...sponsor me!

Whoa....

I was, at first, "pffft- not a chance" Then I read about that "studded collar, cage, wi-fi, and barking" thing and though "I'm in!"
Normally, I have to pay some serious money for all that- not to mention the airfare to Vegas.... or Thailand.
I'm in for $50- $75 if there's a pic of you in the collar, ON THE BIKE, barking- I do like bikes, after all.
Where would I send a check, or should I just drop it off at the ARL?
Is that the one in Bedford on 101?

Consider yerself sponsored, but please ride the GS to the event. We live a few miles away, and will try to show up on the Ural. We love our two Golden Girls (11th and 12th rescue Goldens), all from YGRR.

I will only don the collar if I hit $1000 before the event.

And yes, it is the ARL on Rt 101 in Bedford. Great idea to ride my GS to the event, but I too, only live a few miles away so it may be rather anti-climatic.

Baiku, is that you that rides around town in the Ural with the dogs in the side car.

You can sponsor by going to www.firstgiving.com/gracepreston or send a check to the Animal Rescue League of NH with Grace Preston-Kennel Up in the memo. Or bring it on the 25th to the shelter!

C'mon by on the 25th. I will be there from 1 - 6pm!

It really is a great cause and a great shelter. Please help or at least cheer us on.

And FWIW, I have heard it all on the cage, collar, bark, leash etc..

Hi Grace,

My wife is a volunteer at ARLNH, and she'll bring a check on Saturday. I'm attending a ride-to-eat in VT that day, so won't be there.

PM sent.

Wow!

Wow!

I am just humbled by everyone's unbelievable generosity.

Thank you Baiku (Art) and Mrs. Baiku (Judith) for your forthcoming donation. I replied to your PM. But the event is on Thurs Mar 25 not this Sat. Thank you! And Thank you Mrs Baiku for your volunteer work at the ARL. I wish I had time to give, but unfortunately I don't but hope that this effort and my on-going (small) financial contributions help.

Thank you Titiana aka Irene for your most generous donation. You have made many kitties and pooches happy!

Thank you URNUTS aka Jonathan for your generous gift. Yea, I know, you only did it for the dog collar But it is appreciated very much!

You guys are great. I cannot thank you enough. I am so excited to be doing this. Punkie is excited too!
