Did you hear the big news? This year's Walk for Animals will be held at the MN State Fairgrounds! This marks my 14th year participating and I couldn't be more excited to unite with other animal lovers and raise money for a cause that is so near and dear to my heart.
The last two years may have been crazy, but I know my pups would attest that it's been the best two years. More time with mom now that she's working from home, more treats now that she's on a ton of conference calls, and more snuggles on her lap during meetings.
Addy (my Yorkshire Terrier) or Miss Addyitude as they affectionately call her at doggy daycare is 10 years old now and came into my life when I needed her most. She's still a spitfire, loves squeaky toys, and is starting to snore in her old age.
Sevi, my Shih Tzu, joined our family after I foster failed. He stole my heart like no other and provided the snuggles and face licks I was craving (he still licks like crazy). Nicknamed Sevi Bear, he's now five years old and still remains the biggest cuddlebug, lover of tug toys, empty water bottles, and treats.
My heart expands daily because I witness firsthand how your support of Animal Humane Society makes a difference in the lives of so many animals. We care for thousands of dogs, cats and critters each year and provide medical and behavioral care, foster support, food, love, and a safe haven until the animals find a new loving home to call their own. We also provide support to our community through outreach programs, low-cost veterinary care for pets of people in need, training classes, educational programs for kids, and humane investigations for abused and neglected animals. I never knew all those lives (both people and animals) that AHS impacted....and it's why I feel so proud and privileged to work here.
The Walk for Animals is our largest annual fundraiser and it's a time when you can help be a hero to the animals. Please consider helping Addy, Sevi, and me reach our goal of raising $1,000 this year to help animals in need find new homes and new beginnings.
Thank you again for your love and support! We hope to see you at the Walk!
Shanna, Addy, Sevi (and the one who started it all - my lil peanut Harley)
