WagWalk at Nockamixon 2013

Thanks to all who participated in our annual Wag Walk at Lake Nockamixon on October 19. We raised over $11,000 of much needed funds. Fabulous Brenda Bolster was again the leader in soliciting sponsorship money – we don’t know how she does such a great job, year after year, but are sure glad she does! Two new cat kennel volunteers, Chris Shellhammer and Keith Greenleaf, were second and third in amount of sponsorship money collected (they also adopted a cat from us recently and took in a foster kitty from one of our volunteers – great people!). Best of all, the dogs seemed to be having a great time: it was fun for them and their humans too.

Special thanks to the volunteers who did all the work for this event: prize soliciting, set-up of tents and tables, food preparation, registration, bookkeeping… the list goes on and on. Sometimes we stop to reflect on the endless generosity of time and money that our volunteers who. Most of them are at the shelter and see, firsthand, what all their efforts are for; they see the sweet faces of our animals, they pat their heads, they feed them treats, they speak kind words to them: it’s not difficult to understand why they need to do their very best when they know that these and so many other lives depend on them.
