What a wonderful day we had this past Saturday at rescue! For the first time ever, (almost) all of the volunteers got together for breakfast on the porch to meet one another and put faces to names, to bring some of our adopted babies back for a visit, to share our stories about how we found the rescue and to see what projects need to be tackled and events to be scheduled in the coming months.
Immediately after, we went to work with the first task at hand: Early fall cleaning! Everyone kicked into gear to clean all 22 kennels – pressure-washing doghouses, bowls and toys; raking out old straw and putting in new hay; mowing and weed-whacking the field and grounds; and, best of all, giving each and every rescue a chance to go for a run, play in the field and catch some balls.
And, oh, yeah … one of our young babies met her potential forever family and went home with them for a weekend trial basis while all of this was happening. We’ll keep you posted! 😉
