helps if you add a little and not just the link. Robert Wolfington, while not entirely accurate (even with his quotes), is very interested in the concept of RaceForAdoption. This is his second article on Indie. The first was a weekend edition feature, which was about a page and an eighth dedicated to Race For Adoption, Indie, Axel and greyhound adoption. I called him yesterday, after Indie's race, and he was able to get this article in the paper for today. The print version also has the picture Vera took of Indie with Kathi, which was featured at GG.

He plans to continue writing articles about her as long as we have information to share. He told me I can call at any time, although I plan to only call during big developments for her.

Becki,

Great job of getting publicity for Raceforadoption.You never know who will read about it and do the same.

If you click on 'News' under the Marshall Independent banner you can also see the photo that was in the paper!

We'll have the same pic of Indie on the site soon.

Great to see some good greyhound publicity, and a journalist interested in Indie's career Smile.

Angela, now that I looked at that picture, it might be a different one than the one you have. It isn't the one that was on GG. Vera sent me two others that I forwarded to Robert. He must have chose a different one than I thought.

The link didn't work for me, but I found the article anyway.

I see what you're saying about the factual errors. I'm surprised at the spelling errors, too!

Overall, though, it's a pretty nice article. When she's ready to come home that will make a nice article, as well.

I am glad you found it. I have to say, at least it was a positive article. There has been zero negativity and it has generated a fair amount of local interest....or at least the first article did. Working from home, I haven't seen the real world today to know if there was a reaction out there yet Wink

It did make the front page of the paper and continued to the second for the article this time, so hopefully we will see more people looking at adoption.

Sorry, I couldn't find the article but it sounds like it provided some good publicity for RFA. Congratulations.

I didn't think about that until just now. They have the articles on the website the day of the paper, but I don't know that they have any sort of archive for them. I am sorry about that!
