great venue to see how a prospective foster dog acts in crowded situations as well as with children. One such situation was with Duncan, an American Staffordshire terrier, who is currently under foster care, but still in search of a permanent home. Duncan is between six and seven years old, currently living with cats, and gets along great with kids (see photo). Any legitimate Animal Rescue organization is welcome to set up at the Pelham Adoption Day. To illustrate the effectiveness of the network approach in trying to find homes for these pets, one can look at the relationship between the Pelham facility and the Wignall Animal Hospital located in Dracut, MA. According to Clark, Pelham assists Dracut in trying to place dogs when their facility becomes

overpopulated. In turn, a Wignall Hospital foster candidate was present at the Pelham adoption days. A sweet Basset- Beagle mix by the name of ‘Sounder’ was there. The 12-year-old owner-surrender certainly made me consider taking him home. At this point, it’s important to mention that although ‘owner-surrender’ may have somewhat of a negative connotation assigned to it, that is far from the truth. If anything, it is most often sad, as the dogs are often surrendered due to the previous owners’ inability to care for the dogs—financially, physically, or due to a change in housing where pets are not allowed. The feature dog of the day had to be Ramses, a Belgian Malinois. This breed is noted for its gentle nature and is considered to be a family dog. Ramses is 10 years old and is the result of an owner-surrender. As Clark indicated, it is tough placing seniors that are six to eight years old. So, at 10 years of age, Ramses is just waiting for you to come down and take him away to his new home. Adoptions fees are currently around the $275 price tag and you can find information regarding adoption day dates as well as photos of the dogs that are available for fostering and adoption at ARNNE’s Website, www.arnne. org. Also, there will be a dog rescue benefit golf tournament, cleverly entitled “Putts Fore Mutts,” that will take place on September 12 at the Windham Country Club. Golfers are needed and this will be a great way to support a wonderful cause. For more information on the event, call 233- 4801 and leave a message for Lynn Barry.

Scam Alert: BBB Warns of an E-mail Phishing Scam

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is warning consumers about a new e-mail scam designed to steal your money. Be on the lookout for an e-mail claiming to be from someone you know who is stuck in another country. They are asking you to give them a loan to pay for their hotel bills and airfare home and request that you respond via e-mail. “This is yet another phishing scam,” said Paula Fleming, BBB Spokesperson. “All the scammers are doing is using a new ‘hook’ to lure you into wire-transferring money to them.” This e-mail scam will come from someone who you have corresponded with via e-mail before, but their e-mail address may be different. All personal information or signatures within the e-mail will be the same. This is a type of phishing scam, where thieves send e-mails that appear to be from a trusted contact and try to trick you into providing personal information or sending large sums of money via wire transfer. If you reply to the e-mail, you will be asked to wire-transfer money or to provide your bank account or credit card numbers. The scammer may also reply back with a link where you can supply this information. Do not click on links within scam e-mails; your computer will almost certainly be infected with malware or spyware viruses that can help the scammers find enough information on your computer hard drive to steal your identity. The BBB has some simple advice to keep you safe:

• If you receive an e-mail from someone you know who says they are in trouble, contact that person directly with the number or e-mail address that you have for them.

• Never click on links contained in e-mails you receive from someone you don’t know, even if the e-mail looks real.

• Never give out personal information over the telephone or online to someone you don’t know.

• Make sure your computer has up-to-date anti-virus software because new scams are created every day. • When in doubt, check it out with the BBB.
