Volunteering at the animal shelter

One thing I’ve always wanted to do was spend time volunteering at the animal shelter helping out the doggies in need of good homes. One of the first things I decided after my diagnoses, was that I wanted to use some of my available time  helping out the dogs in our county. The dogs in my life have brought me so much joy and happiness, I’ve always felt the need to help out dogs in need and to see that other folks get to make that special connection with their new best friends like I have.

Alex, my folks, and I all went through the volunteer orientation, and when I’m feeling good enough we’ve started to go walk some of the dogs that are in most need of some good photos. Here’s a sampling of some of the dogs we’ve photographed so far.

      Thanks for sharing that link. Those where some very cute photos that would make it hard for me not to adopt ^_^

        That would be my downfall, not being able to take them home. But they are receiving love through you, such a gift. Love they may not otherwise recieve. So keep up the Loving!!!!
        Love the Picture of Alex!
        Take care,
        Jessi and Mama and Mattie

    Great pictures and great cause. Once again, you are turning what is causing so much pain and making it a positive in the mist of feeling sick. I know each of these doggies are grateful for your visits, and look forward to them as much as you do. You are one of a kind, never change!!!
    Love you lots, Give Alex our love too!
    Jessi and June and Mattie sends a Meow!
