I have been volunteering with this rescue for several months now. Connie, the director, is wonderful and loves these dogs so dearly. She is dedicating her life to helping them and right now she has almost more than she can handle. The rescue is in Buena Vista, CO and she needs help with donations, transport and foster homes for the dogs. We are working on putting an email newsletter together so any content ideas would be appreciated as I will be putting it together (with Connie's approval of course) and I am not sure what to put in there.

An adopter/adoptee profile...
A featured book by someone like Suzanne Clothier...
Information on something like bloat...
Ask the Shepherd column...advice from a dog to humans on behavior...
Treat recipe - all natural
See if you can find a vendor - poop pick up, real fence (not IF), photographer, food store, whatever to offer a coupon...
Kids corner - use dog scouts or other sites to help stress kid safety and dogs
Do a contest for photos for the next issue from adopters of their rescues - that will be the photo featured on the website or next issue...

Not sure on the length, but those are some ideas for you!

Thanks so much for all of your input! Some really fantastic ideas I will work on! Connie just got her 501c3 so we are going to work on a lot of fund raising now. We spent all day today taking pictures of her gorgeous dogs and I am going to work on a logo for her and newsletter to try to help with the donations and we are talking about having an event as well, such as a sponsored dog walk or something like that.
