With Thanksgiving and the holidays quickly approaching, most of us are reflecting on what we are thankful for this past year. I am, of course, thankful for my family and friends who have been so supportive of my crazy adventures traveling the country with my dog and our website.
However, I am also thankful each and every day for a lot of strangers and acquaintances. These are people who are dedicated to helping animals. Most of them never get recognized or even receive a simple thank you. Their commitment to helping animals in need goes above and beyond and deserves recognition. So today, I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to:
- Veterinarians who donate their time and resources to help animals in need.
- Corporations who give back to the animal community.
- Volunteers who give up their weekends to work adoption events.
- Volunteers and nonprofit board members who spend months and months planning fundraising events to help animal groups.
- Foster families who take homeless pets into their homes to give them a safe place to stay until their perfect forever family is found.
- Transport volunteers who drive hours and hours on short notice to get a homeless animal where they need to be for medical treatment and/or to their new family.
- Animal control officers who remove animals in crisis out of bad situations such as hoarders and investigate animal abuse.
- Elected officials who create and pass laws that protect animals in their communities.
- Rescues groups and their members who dedicate their lives, their money, and their free time to helping animals.
- Pet owners who open up their home and life to a pet and commit to taking care of them for the long term.
One quote I love is, “Helping one dog may not change the world, but to that one dog the world will be forever changed.” So today, I would like to say I am thankful to each and every one of you!
