Votes Needed For Life is Labs Rescue - PEPSI Grant

Recommended Posts

I checked with Glenn before posting this. He graciously approved it as a worthy cause.

Our younger daughter Kristie owns and operates Waterdog Kennels in Temple, GA, about 40 miles west of Atlanta. She does some obedience training, but her main business has been boarding, and training dogs for hunting and field trials.

In the past two or three years, in addition to that, she has gotten into the rescue of dogs, primarily labs, but others as well.

The dogs are first taken to a vet to get them up to snuff healthwise. They get vaccinations, and are treated for any physical ailments.

Then they are trained in the basics, to walk on and off leash and to obey the usual commands, come, heal, stay, sit, etc.

After this period, during which they are quarantined, they are introduced to other dogs for socialization. They must be kept apart from the dogs being trained and boarded, until they are ready to be socialized.

This requires a separate facility, which at present is very limited in the amount of dogs that can be rescued. There are plans for expansion, which will be underway soon.

Kristie is one of a thousand applicants accepted by Pepsi to "compete" for a 50K grant. The ten winners are determined strictly by the number of votes they receive.

Today Kristie is at #56 and needs to get in the top 10. So she needs votes!!!

You can vote daily online, by facebook, and by texting. For those who are techies, and are hooked up with all three, you can cast three votes daily.

Voting ends on October 31, 2010

Here is Kristie's page. Be sure to check out Libby's before and after photo on the page.


Hope this part of an email Kristie has sent shows up. If you want to receive updates from her you can contact her by email, and you will be added to the list. Number 1 is for the page linked above.

I'll do all three until the end of the month.

I think MTV and the new york stock exchange are doing a similar grant, maybe she could look into that too. I think it's called "movers and shapers"...
