While the fur-girls were sliding on the ice on Tuesday, our mail carrier stopped by. She did indeed have the mail, but she also wanted to chat with me about her cause – an animal shelter in a neighboring county. Like every shelter I’ve heard anything about recently, they’re out of room and the situation is desperate. They are not a no-kill shelter, and while they do what they can to turn over purebreds to breed-specific rescues and they work closely with a no-kill organization in the area, but it’s not enough to keep up.
Frankly, what they need are fosters and adopters. We can’t do either. They don’t really need the food I thought I’d donate, nor do they need the crate pads. I want to help, but a big part of being helpful is actually doing something that needs to be done! I’m sad and frustrated, so if you have any ideas, let me know.
In the meantime, enjoy the fur-girls playing on the ice. I’m now almost rabid for snow; they’d love it! I’m also pretty sure Gretchen will love the ocean and play fetch with the Knight in the surf, no matter how cold it is. Not that we’ll find out any time soon, but maybe February will surprise me.
Don’t forget to swing by the Dogs on Thursday blog, and all the other doggies on there. Happy little friday!
