NEWS FROM STAY BRONY, MY FRIENDS
This week we have several things to cover. Go grab a cider and get comfortable.
First, due to the shutdown of the Everfree Network, we’ve moved to a new site. You can find our live shows, still at 5pm Pacific every other Monday, at Canterlot Hill, our old shows are still at the Everfree YouTube site, but we aren’t sure whether that’s going to be going away or not. We are uploading all of the old shows to Dusty’s own YouTube page at dustykatt’s Channel – YouTube, and that’s also where the new shows will go.
Second, we are sad to announce the passing away of Banzai, our dog. Banzai was the constant canine companion of the Stay Brony My Friends household for the past ten years. We will miss him more that words can say.
And third… down to business, this week’s Manly Challenge charity!
Our guest, Andy Price, has chosen The Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta to support for this week’s challenge.
Golden retrievers are gentle, loving dogs who want only to be with a caring family. However, all too often they lose their homes for reasons that have nothing to do with the dog. Families forced to move, owners who fall sick and can no longer care for their pets, medical bills for the dog which the owners cannot afford, and many other reasons often result in a good dog in an overcrowded, understaffed public animal shelter. And with large dogs like golden retrievers, finding a new home sometimes comes too late.
The Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta, like other breed rescues, intervenes by claiming the animals from the pound before they are euthanized. Volunteers provide foster homes, and the dogs’ medical needs are taken care of. The dogs are evaluated by those who know the breed best, and permanent homes are found with carefully screened new owners. By supporting breed rescues like the Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta, wonderful dogs are saved from a certain bad fate.
This is one place where even a modest donation goes a long, long way.
As always, we are having a drawing for thank-you prizes that anyone who donates at least 5 bucks is eligible for. We have a wonderful slate of giveaways for this one, but Andy upped the ante and will donate an ORIGINAL page of art from the MLP comics series to the winner of the drawing. This ONLY will be given away if we reach 500 dollars donated by January 26th, so go donate, save a dog’s life, and get a chance at absolutely unique artwork!
So if you can, please go to https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/manliestbrony/goldenretrieverrescue and give what you can.
And once again, thank you all for your continued support!
