Maiden posting.........

for Maine Poodle Rescue. Our fledgling organization met for the first time on Sunday to set up the official organization - and to discuss what we hope to accomplish in the months and years ahead. For a first meeting, in Maine, in the winter, with repeated snowstorm threats, we had a good turnout.

The discussion centered mostly around the legalities of forming a 501(c)3 incorporation,; fund-raising; the breed and breeding kennels, as well as upcoming legislation (Friday, March 6, 2009 9:00AM - Agricultural Dept Budget Meeting).

We adjourned with the promise to meet again on March 29, 2009............and to let as many "poodle people" as possible know about the meeting so the turnout is larger. For more information about our organization, please visit our website, , or join our Yahoo group, Maine Poodle Rescue.

If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact me or check back here for more information on upcoming meetings.
