First, PLEASE share with your peeps! We have a great Golfing event to benefit GPG. Today is the last day to register. It's about helping these kids out, so even if you are a timid golfer, golfer"ess", come & let your inner golf diva shine because you are always more beautiful when you are helping others out! And if you just can't bring yourself to golf, join us for Wine & Wags the same day. Wine & lots of hanging out with lots of folks with big hearts & love of wine. Links to both events with flyers/registration information below on "events" page of website.

Join us for our first annual Golf Tournament and Wine Tasting Fundraiser at Clinton Hill Golf Course in Belleville, IL!

EARTH DAY!! This Sunday GPG will have a booth in the Wildlife area & we should have some pups to meet. Also, probably some Bhakti Bones, organic animal friendly cookies for your kids with all proceeds going towards a future shelter for the kids that haven't found their forever homes yet. The kids that are still outside, struggling for survival each day. Please come visit our booth. This event is this Sunday, April 25th in Forest Park.

VOLUNTEERS!! We need some volunteers to help at all of our events. The next one up is Earth Day in Forest Park. We are also looking for people to help organize adoption events. There are many places we have regularly occurring events, in which case you would need to set up times/dates for future ones & be a "Question & Answer" type of person at the event. Even if you are only able to do a "Petsmart" or other venue near your home, this would be extremely helpful. We have events all over St. Louis area, and it would be great to have volunteers from a diverse group of areas also. Always check out our event page also, as usually we need help with the listed events. Would you like to help out for a few hours at the Golf Tournament or the Wine Tasting event??

Would you like to write a story for your school newspaper about GPG? Your local newspaper? Your local church newsletter? Do you think that in the course of this day, that you could let one person know about GPG and the heartwarming work they do? Could you share a story about one of the rescued dogs? Could you share a story about a pup who is still on the street, waiting for his/her foster home?

You never know........someone might hear you & be willing to try fostering. They might be willing to ride with P.J. to see the where these dogs live. To see the love they have for her. Even though they have been living on the streets, they have an infinite capacity to learn to love. Love seeks love. They know that she comes every single day to give them food and water. They know she doesn't let them down. Eventually, they warm up to her develop a bond. After being rescued, they usually learn pretty quickly that there are some pretty amazing people out there. They are a testament to the resilience of sentient beings. Sometimes you save their life, and sometimes they save yours. Post us on your facebook page! Put a link in your email! Call us and ask about "riding" along.
