You can also see the volunteers. I don’t know all of these wonderful volunteers’ names. I know this gentleman’s name is James. I can’t remember the name of this lady, who has come to every one of these adoption events. It was the first time that she brought her two teenagers to help and they did a wonderful job of helping and handling our dogs.
There’s Ms. Pam. Everyone was wearing jackets, because it was chilly.
It’s a really nice store and we had a lot of people come and greet our dogs. We didn’t get any applications, but we got lots of exposure. We were at the front of the store and everybody stopped to meet and greet our doggies.
I don’t know if it was the first time that we took Minnie to an adoption event. Minnie hadn’t always accepted other dogs. One of our supporters Barbara, who adopted Beretta, wanted to adopt Minnie. But Minnie didn’t get along with her dog. Minnie has come a very long way and she is accepting other dogs, as long as they don’t get in her face. So we brought Minnie to this event. She’s an older dog and she’s just beautiful. Jill was trimming her paws and tail and she was brushing her and Minnie loved the attention. We had a good, successful day.
There’s Spotsy with Martha. We are so happy that we have a relationship with them now. She said she would be happy to continue to help us with our puppies. They have such a great turnover and I wish we had that. To have this relationship with Operation Kindness is a dream come true and rescue groups helping rescue groups is inspiring. And Spotsy had a spot at Operation Kindness on October 15th.
This is a crate that they had ready for Spotsy. They used this to take her back and examine her, before she could be placed on the floor and be ready for adoption.
She was still in their adoption intake. The volunteers take them outside often and they have a beautiful setup. It’s now several weeks later and I can tell you that Sugar Marie and Spotsy have been adopted. All of the dogs that we have taken to Operation Kindness have been adopted and are now sleeping in warm beds. We are so grateful that we can do this. Thank you, Operation Kindness!
It was a beautiful evening and Maci and Amber were still there. They helped us bring our doggies back and fed them their dinner. Then they took them back to their kennels to spend another night at Straydog.
