Interesting - when I clicked on each of the heartwarming story links --- it says "not found." What's up with that? Was thinking maybe that's a route we should try to go. Attempt to get members with writing abilities to tell Gypsy's story or Hope's story or so many more. Maybe that will beat the number. Also maybe we need to just go for one shelter for an entire voting period instead of back and forth so there might be more numbers in one place. You know I'm voting every day but have for the last three or four challenges. JMO.

Great idea about stories! I didn't know about that aspect of the "Shelter Challenge."

Another suggestion--could we have a "sticky" for the thread with information about the shelter challenge and links to the voting page? I tried to bump the thread up from time to time, but a sticky would make it easier to find.

Don't know about the links Sue, but you can access the stories in the www.animalrescuesite.com Getting members to write stories? History has shown we cannot get members to vote in mass. :unsure: Perhaps the next challenge will be different...sure hope so. :prayer::prayer: Deb (3Maltmom) posted last year that she wrote a story about one of her rescues, and the allotted space was relatively small.

Yes I guess we could vote for just one of the rescues. It would have to be agreed to by the top people of the two rescue groups - Northcentral Maltese Rescue, Inc. (NMR) and American Maltese Rescue Association (AMR). Alternating between the two was a way not to show favoritism.

Thank you Sue for being a steady voter!

A sticky is used for threads that are to be permanent. Since challenges are every 3 months, and thread editing is time sensitive, a sticky in this case would be inappropriate. By going to the "rescues" forum you can find the thread usually on page one or two, or you can do a search in that forum. Thank you for your votes!!

Good for them! It seems as if all the shelters are over run with cats - so sad. :(
I can hear your motors running. Zoom, Zoom! Thank you for your steadfast dedication, and many votes per day! :thumbsup:
