    Or on a monthly basis we could either donate funds to different rescue organizations etc or donate funds to aid with transport costs etc of dogs from pounds to rescue groups etc.

    So what are everyone's thoughts etc ???
    That is not a bad idea Deb. I would be quiet comfortable with this idea!

    I think it might sound good on paper...but not in practice. And what happens when funds run out and someone is "eligible" for a "present", but didn't get one due to no money in the fund?!? Now THAT is a situation that will cause MAJOR issues IMO!

    I felt bloody horrible that I couldn't contribute to Amanda and her and Choppa helping the Staffy in need! I had spent all my money on getting Eddie out and desexing Ruby, so I just didn't have anything to give.





    Maybe just maybe our spare change could go to good use by donating it to Morgan so we actually have a Forum to go to and one without advertisements...food for thought guys.........
    Excuse me, no one? I have donated, since then, only this month. must then check with paypal where my money has actually gone if it is not showing up. I will not donate again if it is just going in a pocket.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Can I ask the question "Why can't that site be funding by appropriate and quality dog product, vetinery advertising". Limited to just a few with monthly costs. They can advertise on a monthly basis and if they drop out, I am sure that there would be someone to fill the spot. Currently there are a few who indirectly advertise their wares, "not having a go at anyone, nor trying to alienate anyone here", just trying to get a sense of why?

    Hey Girls..

    Are we or are we not going ahead with the "slush fund"...

    Maybe we could start a poll to see what others think etc & if it is do-able or not.
