Yes, finally there is a way you, my friends and readers, can help out the hounds at Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue, at no additional cost to yourself, AND irrespective of your geographic location.
TIRR, a 501c3 charity, has been accepted into the Amazon Smile charitable giving program. Since this IS the holiday shopping season, this makes it simple for shoppers to help out the hounds. You simply sign into Amazon Smile, instead of the regular Amazon website. You then choose Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue as your charity of choice.
Whenever you shop at Amazon, just go through Smile instead and many/most of your purchases will be eligible for a donation to TIRR. Amazon Smile donates a portion of the sales to your chosen charity, and does not charge you for this. The more people who choose to shop via Smile, the more funds TIRR recieves. This helps them out more than you can imagine.
For example, consider Heather, a recent rescue...
Justin Animal Hospital, where they determined they could save her leg, and hopefully get her fully healed.
Now, for those of you who haven't read a good dog story lately, or are in need of an excellent gift item for those dog lovers in your life, I suggest The Book of Barkley, by LB Johnson. Also available via Amazon Smile, AND currently on SALE in the Kindle format, just in time for the holidays! It's already on my order list for my gift giving, and the sale just makes it even more attractive. Thank you LB! And just to encourage you even more to buy the Book of Barkley, the author, LB Johnson even donates a significant portion of the royalties to various animal rescue organizations.
Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, (and a crowd-free, stress-free online shopping experience!)
