I went on Craigslist today. Always a mistake. I feel so bad for all the animals people are trying to get rid of... I wish I could take more, but I can't. Three dogs and three cats is our limit. So I feel kinda helpless about all of these poor homeless animals.
I saw an ad (again) for a volunteer who likes dogs, and this time decided to call. I'll be going in Monday morning for a couple of hours to feed, walk, and clean up after the dogs at the shelter.
I didn't know which shelter I was calling, so when the woman I was talking to mentioned the name Tamara, I said, "Wait, which shelter is this?" She said "Animal Aid" and I started laughing. That's the same organization I used to volunteer for when I would go to the PetsMart to clean up after the cats every Thursday night. I had to quit since I moved, making the one-way trip from about 15 minutes to over an hour, but I've missed doing it.
To find their new address, I looked up the website. Then, to see if any of the cats I used to care for were still up for adoption, I clicked their PetFinder link.
And hey, whatdya know, Oreo is still "up for adoption"
through them. Her grumpy little picture mad me laugh out loud.
I think I'll have to tell them to take her ad down, as that little miserable little cat is all ours now. :)
