One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. Homeward Trails is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides pet adoption in Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. Homeward Trails seeks to find permanent adoptive homes in the Mid-Atlantic region for dogs and cats from high-kill shelters or whose owners can no longer care for them. They seek to reduce the rate of euthanasia of adoptable animals through the rescue and placement of homeless animals; to support proactive spay/neuter practices; to promote positive and ongoing behavioral training; and to educate the public about how to care for their animals in a humane way. Homeward Trails not only facilitates adoptions from local shelters, but also supports a large network of foster care providers who take homeless dogs and cats into their homes, care for them, rehabilitate them when needed, and prepare them for their permanent adoptive homes.

    A K-9 shoot is nice if everything is going well. he power play for this team has sucks. It was bad last year and is the reason they lost this past saturday night. Get on the ice, draw up different power play as the one that you are using now everyone knows and many nare defending it very well. You have to have other options than Ovie sitting in his office and taking shots that are not going in. Is the lack of a power play because there is not enough time devoted to it or that other teams are now getting a handle on how to stop it?
