The Elmore Humane Shelter's Wags and Whiskers Bone-a-Fit silent auction was Friday. I dropped off these during the worst pop-up thunderstorm I've seen in years!
But apparently it was a good night for an auction-they raised over $14K for the shelter! Woot, woot! Heaven knows our shelters need the help. People are *so* irresponsible with the lives of creatures that depend on us to keep them safe and healthy. Sweeties like these:
Did you know that black animals, especially large black dogs, are less likely to be adopted? It's true. It's called Black Dog (or, I suppose, cat...) Syndrome. What is Black Dog Syndrome? I was at the HSEC last Saturday, and they have an over abundance of all animals, but there were so many black kitties in the cages. It's heartbreaking! Our Ivan has to be the sweetest cat we've ever known. And while it was a horrible experience for him to be dumped out in the middle of a hurricane, we're very glad someone did, because our lives are more enjoyable with him in it!
This weekend will be my first day helping out with some photography at the Humane Society of Elmore Co (HSEC). If you'd like to help out, there are lots of ways! Check out their volunteer page here. And of course, if you're able, ADOPT!!!!! =D
