Last week was a great week for our shelter. We are finally getting adoptions. Saturday was awsome. By the end of the night we had 6 empty cages, we haven't seen 1 empty cage all summer much less 6. So it started Thrusday night when 7 cats got signed up for not all went throug, but I know of 4 that did. Then Saturday a woman who adopted an FIV positive kitten from us last spring came in. She had seen this cat name Seymore on our web site he is 7 yrs old, FIV positive & his family had to give him up because one of the children had lift threatning alergies. So the woman came in to sign up for him. Our policy is that if you've adopted from us before you can take them home that day. You've never seen a group of people so happy, until later that afternooon when the people who were showing a couple of cats at PetCo came back. A couple had donated $1000.00 to our shelter. It was so awsome. The volenteers who had been at PetCo said they both started to cry when the couple gave them the check & most of us at the shelter got teary eyed at the joy of their generosity. So for all of you working hard to help the kitties remember there will be bad days, but then there are the days that make it all worth while!!!!
