Here is an update on some upcoming events and fundraisers as well as some news....
3rd Annual Manitoba Pet Expo
It's only 11 days away...
We are really looking forward to this year's event. For some of you that are not aware we had to change venues. We were originally going to have the Expo at Sophie's Dognasium, but they had to close their doors a few weeks ago, which left us looking for a new venue.
We found a venue and are excited that we are still able to bring all of our supporters the 3rd Annual Manitoba Pet Expo!
This year you will see many animal rescue groups and shelters, animal advocacy and many pet related businesses.
We have attached the poster to this email. Please feel free to share it, post it and send it to your friends.
Also attached you will find a Donation Request letter for the Silent Auction at the Manitoba Pet Expo. Please feel free to print this letter off and deliver to any businesses you think would like to donate to our Silent Auction. All donations will be recognized on posters the day of the event.
Looking for Volunteers for the Manitoba Pet Expo
We are looking for volunteers to help us out at the Manitoba Pet Expo. Various duties will include Canteen, BBQ, Admission Table, Silent Auction-50/50 Ticket Table and a few more odd jobs.
All volunteers will receive lunch for free and unlimited beverages for the day. And we will be giving you all something special after the event.
If you can spare us a few hours that day we would greatly appreciate it. If you are interested in volunteering at the Expo please reply to this email and let us know what times you are available.

BTPRSM wants you to "Show us your Rolls!"
With the Canadian Penny going out of circulation and becoming extinct (that's exactly how we want to see out vet bill).
We are collecting pennies, loose or rolled!!!!! Our goal by December 31, 2012 is to collect $1000 worth of pennies!! That's right 100,000 pennies!!!
You can donate your pennies at any event we are at OR print off this snazzy label, affix it to a jar and set it up at your desk or (if allowed) at your place of work. We will be assembling some jars for businesses that wouldn't mind putting them out for us.
Every penny counts!!!!

Always Looking for Qualified Foster Homes
Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba are always looking for qualified foster homes to add to our fleet of home and to give our other foster homes a break and to be able to take in more dogs.
Foster homes are the heart and soul of our rescue. So if you have a bit extra love to care for one of rescued dogs then please don't hesitate to fill out an application. We supply food, leash, collar, harness, kennel (if required) and medications (if needed). We also pay for all vetting as well.
You can find the foster application attached to this email or on our website at www.bostonpugrescuemb.com under “Fostering A Dog”.
