Thank you DQ :)
Every week I have one dog or cat that I put a little more work into.... without regards to breed, age, gender, or body condition, most of the time the dog or cat is considered less adoptable... or for whatever reason it is not getting as much attention as others.... so, that dog or cat becomes my "Pet of the Week"
Along with trying to find rescues, adopters, fosters, transporters... etc
for hundreds of other dogs
I focus on this dog or cat separately, I make it my goal to have him or her out, I may not be able to save them all, but THAT dog or cat will get out
My "Pet of the Week" for this week (Dec 12- 18)
Aslan is a 7 year old purebred rough coated Collie
He came in as an owner surrender and is an complete gentleman, his coat is severely matted and he does have problems with his hips (as many older large dogs do)
Im pulling in an old favor from a purebred Collie Rescue, if all goes well, he will be out and on his way to safety soon.
BICKER OF THE DAY
I LOVE volunteering.... shelter employees, adopters, fosters, donators, rescuers... all of them are AWESOME to work with and are helpful... what I CAN NOT stand.... are the arrogant people who bring in a 12 year old dog on Thanksgiving day because they don't have time
Or the people who drop off a 6 week old puppy that was SUPPOSED to be an early Christmas present but is chewing everything and going to the bathroom on the new carpet
Pets are a responsibility people, they are NOT presents!
