A Visit To The Shelter

We just wanted to show you a bit about our visit to the Franklin County Dog Shelter. WARNING: I didn't get to go! Parental Unit didn't think she'd be able to carry in the donations and keep control of me at the same time...and then she was worried that I'd catch kennel cough or something...and then she worried that I'd be traumatized by going back there...and then she worried...well, you get the picture.

Anyway, here's a few pictures from our visit:

This is the front desk where you check for a lost pooch or fill out the paperwork to adopt.


Here's a poster with some facts about the shelter-13,000 dogs every year! No wonder they need the newspapers and peanut butter we dropped off (they specifically requested peanut butter to use when giving us dogs pills-so that's the trick!)


And here's one of the shelter's wonderful volunteers with an adorable pooch that hopefully will soon be adopted!

Parental Unit told me that she really enjoyed the visit and will return often with donations-this time with ME!

P.S.  We have a surprise for tomorrow...let's just say it was a "backyard event" and didn't include dogs. Hint: Bo didn't make the trip with his Dad!

Hey. My dad says that the muzzer switches towel sets so often just so she can take the "old" ones to the shelter. So we know what your mom means. But no one has EVER mentioned taking me along. I might just have a new campaign.

I wish I could get somebody to donate peanut butter to us! I think it's very cool that you sent the shelter stuff that they could use!

That's part of the reason Mom didn't take me along when she sprung Brandy on Saturday - she didn't want to wrestle me whilst there signing stuff!

BUT, Khousin Merdie, The DN, and I were thrilled we got to meet her!

Must have been fun for your parents to visit the local shelter!!

Bocci said...

It really was fun- a little too fun, cause my Parental Unit fell for another doggie there!

Peanut butter is a really good idea. Our hooman usually hides pills in chedder cheese (which we can smell from seven miles away lol).

How can people abandon a dog? How?
