help feed rescue dogs

as you can tell by my avatar, i love dogs. both oscar wild (see above) and mystery puppy are both rescue dogs. so when i saw this, i had to share it. if you go here, and click on the button that says "click here to give, it's free" (big purple button), you can help feed shelter dogs. and it costs you nothing but a minute of time. so please, give some critters a moment of your time!

ok, my links won't work so i am posting what i got in my email:

Click on the purple button at The Animal Rescue Site and
give food to an animal living in a shelter or sanctuary... at no cost to you.

but wait...i figured it out! spaces! i got rid of them and now the links work! another v8 moment! and the first time i didn't check my links after posting!
