North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue (NMAR)is a very special, Pitbull-loving rescue group who needs all the help they can get...and helping is easy! NMAR has been selected for the Pepsi Refresh program, and is in the running for a FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAR GRANT!
To earn that grant, they need votes. The Top 10 vote-receiving proposals will EACH receive a $50,000 donation from Pepsi. NMAR's proposal is for building a permanent shelter for the dogs. They are still recovering from a 2008 flood that forced them to relocate.
You may remember NMAR from the story of their rescue and rehabilitation of Gunny, a rescued bait dog turned pitbull ambassador. To read more of Gunny's amazing journey and list of accomplishments, visit his blog http://www.northmecklenburganimalrescue.org/Gunny/
and his Facebook page
Please vote EVERY DAY until midnight on April 30th. To vote, visit
It is critical that word continues to spread, and votes continue to be cast in order for NMAR to continue to be able to save and shelter dogs like Gunny. In addition to voting, NMAR asks that you consider telling your family and friends, posting to your Facebook pages, and informing local rescue groups and community service groups. If you contact NMAR by email, they can also provide you with fliers to post and cards to leave in high traffic areas. firstname.lastname@example.org
