I’m wondering, now that it’s Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month, what is it that makes your local shelter different than all the others? What is it that they need the most? What kinds of animals are coming into the shelters, and why are there so many?
I know I’ve already asked that you contact your local shelter and find out more about them, but I’m betting that some of us won’t actually do that. So I’d like to put out an invitation to the shelters themselves, to people who work in the shelters and happen to also be Itchmo readers. Tell us a little about yourself. Why should we come to you? What is special about you and your volunteers? Where are you located? What needs do you have that are not currently being filled? How can we help?
You can, of course, answer this question in the comments, or you can send me an email directly (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I’ll do my best to feature some of your answers here on the Itchmo website during the month of October.
In the meantime, I’ll link you to my local shelters in Spokane, Washington, from which we adopted our very-much-adored Sadie (pictured above), a border-collie mix we found at Spokanimal CARE. I’ll also link our other fabulous local shelters, because they all do good work, and they all deserve come recognition and kudos.
