One Small Step for Puppy-kind! PLEEEEEZE!!!


Dear Y'all,


Right after Hurricane Katrina TOTALLY OBLITERATED THE GULF COAST OF MISSISSIPPI, one of my very own Queens, TammyPippa, got her 501(c)(3)—non-profit designation—and started ANIMAL RESCUE FUND of MISSISSIPPI—or ARF, as we call it. She went and got all the dogs rescued from the destroyed cities of Gulfport and Waveland, Mississippi. (Some of which still live at ARF, by the way.)

For the last FIVE YEARS, she and her husband Charles Jackson have worked tirelessly (that’s not true, they are PLENTY TIRED—all the time—but they never stop) and at great personal, emotional, and financial cost, caring for homeless and abused animals. ARF is the first and only NO-KILL animal shelter in Rankin County, Mississippi.

And now, since the GULF OIL SPILL, Pippa and Charles have taken in many more animals whose humans have lost their homes in that region. Additionally, the day- to-day abandonment and abuse of animals continues, unabated all around us as well. ARF works to care for them all.

ARF is currently in the TOP TEN on the PEPSI REFRESH EVERYTHING online funding contest. There are only 8 days left in this—and if ARF remains in the top ten, they will receive $50,000!

I don’t have to tell you what this will mean—but here it is: IT WILL MEAN LIFE ITSOWNSELF TO MANY, MANY PUPPY DOGS!

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is go to the below link, ONCE A DAY, for the next 8 days, and vote for ARF. (You can pick 9 other worthy charities to vote for at the same time and please do so!) Save this e-mail for a week and once a day, click on the link and VOTE FOR ARF. You can also forward this to all of your friends so they can help.

There are not many chances in life to do something SO EFFORTLESS and TOTALLY FREE—that will make LIFE POSSIBLE for so many SWEET, HELPLESS CREATURES! (Including Pippa and Charles. Okay, they aren’t  “helpless” but they sure do need our assistance!)

PLEEEZE AND THANK YOU for doing this! Won’t you feel good about yourself when ARF WINS $50,000 and to know that you HEPPED ALL THEM PUPPIES! I just love to hear the PEPSI POUR after I vote!  Sounds so…refreshing!

And while you’re at it, don’t forget, you can also go on FACEBOOK to BARKSDALE CADILLAC and “like” it and ARF will get a dollar for it! This is just a one-time deal—just go there one time and “like” it and VOYOLA—ARF gets a dollar. This offer also runs until 8/31—so do it too, PLEASE!
