In the last year, our tiny but mighty crew of volunteers has rescued 715 animals.
Without this community we couldn't have done it.
From organizing events, writing grants, donations and all of the other tasks that build up our everyday- from hoarding situations to "oops" litters we have made it work and we cant thank everybody enough.
Our Leap Day Tricky Tray last month was a great success and the donations of towels and supplies have been abundant and much needed.
We had so many great prizes and donations, most of which were donated from our community. Carly and Marion, Cindy and Haley took hours out of their lives to collect and arrange them and put great effort into making the Tricky Tray what it was! Lynn corralled our volunteers into a force to be reckoned with, and Diego kept the kids smiling and playing while they helped pick tickets. The Magic Man himself kept the crowd enthralled during the event, and people *still* keep coming in to tell us how much fun it was to watch.
He has been such a big help all around here at our rescue, wasting no time in picking up the mop to make all of the typical mess you get with bundles of happy puppies disappear! He charms the crowds here at the shop, as well as the animals.
Thanks go out to every hand in our pot, even if you just walked through our humble door today, you are a huge part in helping us do what we can.
Some hands are more prevalent than others, and we appreciate all that you do:
-Tara and Diego- our near constant companions here at the shop, helping clean and cuddle and educate
-Marion- our grant writer extraordinaire and a force to be reckoned with with her collecting prowess
-Carly and Haley- speaking of hands in many pots, Carly seems to do it all- between organizing our events to grooming and beyond. Haley is one of our favorite bakers, our puppy walker and our dusting queen!
