Everyone has something to offer. Everyone can help. Whether you are 15 months or 150 years old, there is a way to help out in the world. (Ok, maybe if you are 150 you are off the hook, but I hope the first 100 years were productive.)
Anders, Finn and I have been volunteering at the Stafford Animal Shelter. We go a couple times a month, drop off some dog treats or other requested supplies and help socialize the kitties.
(We tried working with the dogs on our first visit, but after a dog jumped up on the cage, barking wildly, and scared the living daylights out of Anders, we’ve had to avoid the canines.)
Cats are more adoptable if they are comfortable around people, and specifically kids. We play with them, groom them and give them a crash course on tolerating little hands. And I get a little cat time, which I miss in my doggy world.
Looky, looky we made it onto the home page of the Stafford Animal Shelter. Finn is famous!
