HOPE has been contacted by PetSafe to host a giveaway of a PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain. This was a great opportunity to work with a great manufacturer that has many different types of pet products from training to feeding and beyond. The giveaway starts today and will end Nov 14th. The winner will be announced the week of 17th and hopefully have shipped before Thanksgiving. Now please be aware this product will be shipped from the manufacturer not us.

The PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain is a stylish, ceramic fountain that freshly filters and continuously recirculates 70 ounces of free-flowing water for pets, keeping it cleaner and fresher than a normal water bowl. The ceramic design is more hygienic, easy to clean (top-rack dishwasher safe) and looks great in your home. The upper and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for pets, and the dual patented free-falling streams add oxygen for freshness, which encourages pets to drink more.

New outdoor runs at the Effingham County Animal Shelter


At the Effingham County Animal Shelter there is a back kennel area for all the court cases, sick and strays that are on their 3 days hold. With this they are subjected to just their kennel and some do not get out much due to their situation. When the facility was built many, many years ago they had prepared it for outdoor runs that would allow the dogs to go inside/outside as they pleased within their run. The outside runs never got built for one reason or another.

The shelter staff would like to NOW make this happen and get these 12 outdoor runs built to allow their dogs the freedom of going outside/inside to provide them more. Nothing like having a court case dog stuck in its kennel with no option to leave it due to court orders, like in the case of Noe the pitbull. He was stuck for a year in his kennel before his case went to court for him to get released to a rescue out of the state. These outdoor runs are very much needed but the county will not support the money needed to do them.

This is where the community can help, as well as HOPE. Each run will cost $200 to complete. HOPE is offering a matching program for the runs, this means HOPE will match all donations made to HOPE for the “Run Project” up to $400. Once we raise out funds HOPE will provide a check to the shelter to hopefully get at least 4 runs built. Help us make this happen by donating below to our YouCaring page.


You can also send a check to HOPE at P.O. Box 2601 Rincon, GA 31326. If you would like you can also select the DONATE button on the right side of the page and donate there. Please note  if you pay by check or paypal please put “Run Project” in the memo so we know what the donation is for. If you donate to the YouCaring site we automatically know.


Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System Contest


Ok, everyone looks for the magical pill to lose weight and the other is the magical way to potty train your puppy or dog. Well there is no magic pill to lose weight or at least not effectively and to maintain that weight but there is a new way to potty train your puppy or dog. It might seem like magic to them and smiles for us.

It is PetSafe’s Train ‘n Praise™ Potty Training System, it provides an easy and positive way to house train your dog. Ideal for pet owners living in apartments, condos or lofts without private yards, the indoor potty training solution uses positive reinforcement to train dogs to use a pee pad. What more could you ask for?

A replaceable moisture detection pee pad is remotely connected to PetSafe’s Train ‘n Praise™ Treat Dispenser. The pad, which can absorb up to three cups of liquid, is made of six layers for extra protection, including a pet attractant layer, odor absorbing layer and leak proof bottom. When moisture is detected on the pad, a wireless signal is transmitted to the treat dispenser and treats or kibble are released, rewarding your dog for using the pee pad correctly and reinforcing the good behavior. Yes, you read that right. It will dispense a treat for doing good and you don’t even have to be home. Although, a handheld remote is also included to aid with initial training or for an occasional treat at the owner’s discretion.

I (Dena Stapleton) have one and actually got to play with it although we did not use the pee pads but we got the basic idea and it worked, I mean it actually worked. Now all mine are already potty trained but my Min Pin was the WORST to train and finally after several YEARS she is good. But she is so treat driven that this would have been a blessing if available a few years ago. Just get it set up, which is not rocket science, and start training. It really is just that easy. Once the dog or puppy realizes they get a treat for going potty on the pad they will continue to get that treat. Now don’t laugh when you get home and the dogs water is all gone and so are the treats. LOL

This effective and practical house training tool teaches your pet where it’s okay to use the bathroom, even when you’re away from home. For pet parents who would like to travel with their dogs, the Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System alleviates the stress of having to find a convenient potty place and also enables training to continue wherever you go. Once potty training is completed, the treat dispenser and remote can be used for positively rewarding other behaviors, like not excessively barking at the door.

The PetSafe Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System is priced at $99. The system includes the treat dispenser, remote transmitter, 10 moisture detection pee pads, pee pad clip, (4) AA batteries, (2) 3-volt lithium batteries (CR2032) and mounting hardware. Additional clips, pee pads and optional power adapter are also available for purchase. Find this all-positive potty training system on Amazon and PetSafe.net.
