Today we learned that roughly 4500 dogs and cats pass through our local animal shelter each year. I was totally amazed to learn they also take in small animals like fish, birds, rabbits, and ferrets to name a few.
It's always heart breaking to leave with so many loving pets needing a loving and stable home. A few of them broke my heart but I especially was saddened to see elder pets abandoned or left behind for one reason or another.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed the tour and even were able to bath and groom a couple dogs. I say a special prayer tonight for the many donors and volunteers who care so much for these loving pets. May these animals find peace and happiness all the rest of their lives in warm and loving homes.
