Voted! Funny not to see the regular rescues I was voting for pop up as they had in past contest. But once you enter one (or two) they're easily there.
Please vote.

Mandy, thanks for the bump! Thanks to all who are voting.

It has been suggested to me to have everyone vote for one selected rescue each week in hopes to get a weekly prize of $1,000. Instead of having the voting fractured around the country, all our votes would have a synergistic effect and impact on just one rescue for that week. Sooooo, lets have some feedback.

I've been voting on my 3 computers for the Northcentral Maltese rescue in Wisconsin. I was voting for the AMA in California,on one computer and splitting the Wisconsin one on the others. So I concentrated all my votes on Northcentral,hoping it would help. While I'm in florida next month,I will logg on and try to vote too.I hope,if I get to go to Dubai,still waiting for final confirmation this week,I will vote from there too.

So far neither of Maltese rescue organizations are in the top 10 (with all the members we should be) - BUT for those that are voting keep it up, and for those who are NOT voting I ask why not?? :confused1:


Please note: The Fort Bragg location in CA had to be changed to Escondido due to the fact the Challenge did not recognize it as a shelter location for AMR.

That's what I voted for as late as this morning, and when I searched for shelters in Fort Bragg, I got a result for the AMR.

3 shelter(s) found.Displaying 3 shelters (1 to 3) — Page 1 of 1
name location

American Maltese Association Rescue Fort Bragg, CA
More Info

Mendocino Coast Humane Society Fort Bragg, CA
More Info

Mendocino County Animal Care Services, Fort Bragg Fort Bragg, CA

More Info
There is also a listing for Escondido, but the word "association" is abbreviated "Assoc."

I guess our AMA votes are being diluted by being split between two different locations.

Please let me know what the AMA rescue would like me to do for the rest of the week.

P.S. What looks like a link in your May 22 post didn't work, so I just went searching on the page where we vote. :( It was just now that I realized there was the other location, for the "Assoc." :(

Step (1)
On her page, or Hunter's Mom's, or Missiek's, click on the round thing which is a link to the website.

Step (2)
Then, click on the purple/lavendar rectangle that says
"click here to give - it's free."
Step (3)
After that, another page will load. Right up at the top is a wide (but not very deep) rectangle that has this in it:

"Help your favorite shelter win in our All-Star Challenge!"
and a graphic that says "Vote Today" against a background of blue sky, green grass, with a baseball on the right.

Click on that graphic.

Step (4)
Then another page will open, where you will be asked to select the shelter you want to vote for. Because of the confusion about the AMA's two locations, I suggest you select the city and state, then the name of the rescue you want to vote for.

Select and vote for a shelter.

Step (5)
Another page appears. There you have to verify your vote by identifying the picture of an animal.

Then you are done.



:) l hope this helps and is correct! I had trouble at first, but since nobody else answered, I thought I'd try to explain it. Anybody else, if this is wrong, please feel free to let me know and give improved directions. :)
