    Hi Folks!
    I'm back and so are the animals in need. After a year hiatus, the ARL is running Kennel Up again to raise funds to help re-home many animals in need.

    The ADVRIDER community has been very generous in the past and I know times are tough for many people and tougher for some family pets. Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

    Here is my official fundraising page:

    Kinda surprised that no one has chimed in. The ADV community has always been supportive of animals in need and have always been generous in the past. :ear

    Keith! Thanks so much for the generous donation! :clap
    I am really excited to be doing this again this year. The ARL is my fav charity and I always set aside a bit of my paycheck every week to send over to them. I don't have the time to volunteer due to my wacky travel schedule, but this is a great way for me to help.

    This year, Kevin Skarupa the weatherman from the NH TV station is doing it. I am determined to beat him in fundraising! But it will be a challenge :deal

    Thank you again! We are well on our way to a successful fundraising effort with $500 in the kitty :D

    We're doing great, thanks! Being a dad is quite an adventure. :D

    As for the pet, I know, I know, but see above, there's only so much multi-tasking and responsibility one guy can handle at a time. :lol3

    2 more donations came in while I was in meetings, conference calls and emails!

    Thank you Vonotto & StuckinNJ for your very generous donations! :clap

    So cool that I have only started fundraising and already the Animal Rescue League has contacted me to say how impressed they are with the amount raised! Really great stuff!

    Also just want to say that even though this shelter is here in NH, it does impact animals everywhere. Often animals from other states are brought to the ARL so that they can have a second chance. Really great organization for sure!

    Today's total is $775. This amount covers the cost of bleach for the shelter for an entire year! I am hoping to raise much, much more. Please consider a small donation!

    Good weekend with a few donations rolling in. Up to $880 which is about 35% of my goal.

    Please consider a small donation. All animals will appreciate it!

    Also note for those not in the area, the ARL takes in animals from other states when their local shelters are overwhelmed. Many animals are transported up from southern states.

    Thank you Caddieshack for your generous support!

    We are now up to $1200!! And all the people at work are now going to hate me since I just blasted an email to them :norton

    Really thankful that I can provide this type of support to the Rescue League. My goal of $2500 will provide enough money to vaccinate the cats that come through the shelter for 1 full year. That would be so cool!:clap
