2013 Holiday Card Fundraiser
It may be just after Halloween, but we are not far from the Holiday Season! German Shepherd Rescue is once again having their annual holiday card fundraiser. Each year this fundraiser brings in much needed funds for the rescue. Each box of 15 cards is a minimum $25 donation, and all money raised goes towards the care of our dogs at the Rescue. We have two new designs this year. Each card features a GSR alum – Eva and Charlie – and their story. Both cards have been designed and photographed by some of our volunteers. If you would like to order you can do so in one of the following ways:
1. Please email us at email@example.com. Let us know how many and of which design you would like and let us know if you will pick the order up at our Burbank location (pickups will be during our public hours, 1-5pm on Saturday and Sunday, first pickups will begin November 9th), or if you need them shipped to you (shipping is $5 for every 1-2 boxes). Please make sure to include your contact info and shipping address. If picking up, you can pay at the time of pickup. If needing to be shipped, please either mail a check to 417 N. Moss St, Burbank, CA 91502 and note on the check that it is for your holiday card order, or pay via our Paypal link to the left below the Dog of the Month (note on the submission that it is for your holiday card order). Cards will not be shipped until payment is received. First shipments will go out Monday, November 11th.
2. You can also just stop by the Rescue anytime during our weekend public hours (as mentioned previously) and buy your sets! We will have the boxes on hand as of Saturday, Nov. 9th. Any questions, please contact us. Thank you for your support and please spread the word! Happy Holidays from all the pups!
Special Need: We are extremely low on wet canned food. If you are interested in helping out the dogs perhaps the next time you are at Costco or Trader Joe’s grab a few cans or a case of wet food for the dogs in Burbank. They are used to eating Pedigree or Trader Joe’s canned food that we mix with dry. The dogs will appreciate it. Thanks. Woof woof!
Special Need: We are currently running low on chain slip/control collars for our dogs. Our volunteers and trainers use them while walking the dogs to give corrections, and we usually like to send you home with one as part of your new dog adoption kit to start your training off on the right paw. If you have a spare or old one that you could donate, or if you’re in the pet store and wouldn’t mind picking one up for our pups, we would greatly appreciate it. 18″-24″ are usually a good fit for German Shepherds. Thanks!!!
Please don’t forget to
RE-REGISTER YOUR RALPHS CARD
It expires once a year on September 1st. If your RALPH’S receipt doesn’t say “GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE” on the very bottom it needs to be renewed.
If you need help signing up just email or call us and we can walk you through it.
The dog days of summer are upon us! It also means that flea and tick season is upon us as well. Dogs can catch fleas and ticks year round in Southern California, but in the summertime with the warm weather they are extra chompy. We are asking for donations of Frontline Plus for Dogs 45-88 lbs (The purple package with the Dalmatian on the front) to make sure that when you welcome your new shepherd into your home you don’t get any uninvited guests.
When it comes to a doggie bed, not all of our dogs are as lucky as C.J.
Wish List Request: We’re making a special donation request for Kuranda Beds for some of our dogs. They are a comfortable, elevated, chew-proof, easy-to-clean dog bed that lifts the dog off the cold hard concrete and provides firm orthopedic support for older dogs or dogs with joint discomfort. It would be a valuable donation that would last for years to come and benefit many dogs while they wait for their forever homes (and forever beds). The Large or X-Large sizes would be ideal for German Shepherds.
