Dog Not Rabid – Front Porch Forum Rocks!

Ellen posted this on her local FPF today…

Man on Railroad Bed Sunday… Our son was biking on Sunday with a friend and you were walking with your 2 black dogs between Marshfield and Plainfield on the railroad bed. Your dog bit our son and we don’t know if your dog’s rabies shots are up to date. Please call immediately. Thank you.

And her good-news follow up posting…

We immediately got a call from the dog owner who was watching FPF for a note about it!! We are so relieved and grateful to know his dog is vaccinated! Front Porch Forum saves the day!

Earlier¬†I posted a “FOR RENT” posting for my step-daughter for her house on the St. Albans City Front Porch Forum.

We were inundated with requests.

She has rented it and I appreciate all those who responded to my posting.  Thanks.

I love the Neighborhood Forum! We are moving near Asheville, NC. I hope they have something like Front Porch Forum there! The free freezer has been removed. It is amazing how many responses we received! I went with the first email. We will miss you Hinesburg! The best place in the world to raise a family!

Grateful for Winooski neighbor connection

Lovely posting today on the Winooski FPF from Mary Beth today…

I am sure many other people share this sentiment of how thankful they are for Front Porch Forum.

What a wonderful resource in so many ways.

Because of the forum I have learned about events in the area, participated in a research study at UVM, gotten a free desk for my daughter, and found the owner of the chicken that I found dead in the road and disposed of the other day. Both the owner and I were grateful to have located each other and it was all because of the forum.

For those who post and those who run the Forum, THANK YOU for this valuable community resource!
