Weekly adoption event
Remember your first day on the job? You’ve got the jitters, you are unsure and everything’s new…volunteering at your local animal shelter is a bit more laid back…When I arrived on my first day to volunteer, cats were out in front, in cages so anyone could take a good look without going into the smelly building.
There was “Jack” an orange long hair with a playful personality. An all black cat, and one with white and grey were burrowed together in their litter box to hide from the public. There were many others including three young black cats scrunched together in comfort.
Nothing distinguishing about them
Until this 98 year-old woman walked up carrying a grocery sack tied to her walker. In it were very colorful blankets she crocheted for any feline so they could settle down in comfort in the cool weather.
Suddenly the black cats looked more appealing with a bright throw in their cage. A part Himalayan kitty, that just received a blue blanket, began showing off incredibly gorgeous blue eyes. They were transformed.
This senior adult received two boosts to her ego that day. She got to see the kitties she obviously cared about and she chatted with animal shelter volunteers* to boot who loved what she was doing. The air was full of thankfulness. She was beaming and so were the kitties.:)
If you’re a pet owner, accidents are just part of the package. Keep you and your pets’ odor and stain free with PetKeeper Secrets Pet Odor & Stain Remover. It’s completely safe to spray into the air to remove odors (unlike enzyme or alcohol based odor and stain removers). It also works great for spots and stains on carpet, upholstery and auto interiors. Buy a bottle today.
*If you want to become an animal shelter volunteer, but don’t have time consider dropping off clean blankets, cat food or litter. A quick call to the shelter will confirm what food or litter works best. The need is always there.
