BHRR's Porridge – MIRACLE BOY Supreme!
Sunday October 5th, 2014
Another amazing day for the BHRR animals at PV's Stittsville 'THANKS FOR GIVING' Event
To the fabu team extraordinary staff at PV, thank you for making us feel like we were part of your family this past weekend! Thank you for inviting us back in 2014!
THANKS must be extended to all the great folks that came to visit us today and, for our Sunday Volunteers, supporters and fans that gave a helping hand with dogs and, talking up r/q Rescue, responsible dog ownership AND, to all those that expressed their biggest plus deepest thanks to the Ottawa plus surrounding area Great Dane plus Giant Breed Rescue that continues to work so hard since our inception in 1996 filling a GIANT need!
We keep saying that we are nothing without our village/community and ONCE again, you have proven that we can keep going strong with you by our sides recommending BHRR to shelters, pounds, rescues and homes needing much needed assistance with their Giants, supporting us with kindness of words, and, hugs of caring and, donations from finances to materials much needed that includes cleaning supplies and dog beds and lifesaving food!
Thank you to the Maracle Family for hanging with us on Sunday and, Sarah Dowler for those extra hands when needed and, to Andrea McCoy, my husband Sean Birch Haven, daughter Kinsley AND, to all of our Visitors that included Miss Trinity from PVAR and, she brought along Tanya MacAllister & Tracy to hang also for a wee bit.
Marg McIlree was so lovely to see you for a bit!
Regan, Kelly, Emily, Breanne Jacklin, Melissa Gingras-Lepage you really are outstanding!
Ashley of AMB Photography, what a doll you continue to be! So thankful that you are part of our lives!
Amy Hache-Cameron & Elizabeth White, BHRR's Porridge feels uber spoiled and, cherished with all of your special love!!!
For all those that I did not catch names, that came to visit us, KNOW that we appreciate EACH one of you from the earth to the moon and stars and beyond!
We microchipped four animals over the two days and, that is a cause SO big and dear to my heart!!!
The monies from Sunday were counted and doubled counted by Cherie and Aaron and, then sealed in an envelope and signed and, then put with the Friday/Saturday Fund envelope that had been counted, double counted and triple counted by Bruce J. Moquin, Aaron and Breanne and all sealed, signed for a GRAND TOTAL deposited THANKS to the army of each of you:
My cup is not just running over in warmth, it is spilling over in copious amounts!
THANK you for making our THIRD public awareness opportunity a successful one and, our last one of 2014, our fourth, shall be at the end of November – Saturday November 29th at PV Hazeldean – ANOTHER store that we absolutely are in love with!!!
As always, remember if you know of a Great Dane or Giant in need, please do keep r/q Rescues like Birch Haven Rescue and Rehabilitation Services(BHRR) in mind! Back in 1996, there was no organization like us out there and, we continue today, filling that need because of each of you being part of our CHAIN OF SUCCESS Story!
