The Walk for Animals is baaaaack! I’m beyond excited that the Walk for Animals will be a in-person event again this year! It will be held at the State Fairgrounds, April 30th. Eric and I won’t be volunteering this year because we want to attend the walk with Henry. You’re welcome to join us!
I’ve said many things about the Animal Humane Society over the years and yet there is still more to say. I’ve often talked about all they do for the animals, but what rarely gets mentioned is what they do for people. They have several programs in place, from veterinary care—including low cost spay/neuter, end of life services, school programs, behavior programs, and more. But one of the most meaningful to me is their Safe Housing program, in which they partner with local domestic violence organizations to offer free foster care, while a pet owner flees a violent situation. Often, a person will be reluctant to leave such situations because they can’t bring a dog or cat to a shelter or hotel. AHS bridges that gap.
I participated in this program and fostered a cat. We fell madly in love with him. He was a lap cat, matched the playing style of each of our cats and was also a spunky young cat who loved toys and bird watching. We fostered him for about 6 weeks and we were devastated to return him. But I knew he had children to return to and who could deny them such a magical pet? I still think about him often. ⬛
Animal Humane Society is so beneficial to our community—the people AND the animals, will you help us continue the mission? Whether you can give a little or a lot, it all matters. That’s pure goodness you’re putting into the universe and heavens knows, we need all the goodness we can get. Thank you, thank you! ✨
