Default Had some fun today

Erin and I took my lil sister and went to the local shelter today. Austin Pets Alive is a great shelter that takes really good care of their animals, and we wanted to help out a bit. We went and played with some dogs, walked them, and gave them lots of love. If I had a car I'd happily be a regular volunteer. The dogs all seemed really happy to have us there. The only trouble was wanting to take a few of them home.

Wish I had taken some photos.

The end

Good on you

I can't be trusted near a shelter, lol. I'm at my limit

Me too, Renee! It makes my physically ill to go to the shelter and not be able to take one home... not even to foster. I just donate monthly.

Thats so great! I bet the dogs loved having you and your little sister. It's really great to get involved with volunteering, it looks great on a resume and it helps make communities whole.

Tons of good kharma vibes for you two!

Erin is like this too. I have a lot of fun, and try to stay positive. She has to compose herself every few minutes to keep from crying.
