Heartworm post updated

I did not realize the post would send you directly to the Pepsi website before reading the original post. I do apologize.
Pepsi is sponsoring a promotion to award grants for good ideas across the entire United States. Heartworm
positive dogs are so common in Houston and so expensive to treat, I entered this competition to help rescue groups and shelters with some of the drug used to treat heartworms, Immiticide. The problem has gotten much worse with the economy.People are not buying the prevention as much and relinquishing their pets, now infected. The burden
of more costs added to fewer donations is creating
horrendous problems in the rescue world.
The idea is currently in #16th place and they only fund the top 10 in each category; I am in the 5,000.00 category. All you have to do is vote every day, just until the 28th of February. Please also ask any animal
folks to vote and spread the word via their social networks.
Both of these dogs are alive today due to donated immiticide, each of which expensive bottle only treats
 a 22 lb dog.
The best part about this idea is that you are not asked to give money, just a few moments of your time every day just until 2/28. Please visit heartworm dogs and forward this to other animal fans as well. Please email me at if you have any questions.

Your pepsi refresh project is a great idea and I just wanted to let you know you've been getting my vote every day! Hang in there and keep up the great work.
