My daughter and I took a full tour of the facility after-hours, so it was very informative and we learned a lot about the animals there. I was blown away by how they are so caring and the animals are treated well, and the fairly large space they have! I didn't realize that this particular location is privately run and strives for adoption of ALL their animals and they don't euthanize. I was very glad to hear that! But most importantly, my daughter was in LOVE with all the animals and gravitated toward wanting to see all the cats she could. At the end of the tour, she asked about being able to volunteer there. So we are taking the steps to do just that! I found myself thinking about the cute dogs and cats we had met, while I was trying to fall asleep! There was something endearing about the one-eyed cat who helps out in the surgery room, and the blind dog who is in the process of finding a home. It was humbling and quite an experience in compassion at the same time. The website you guys gave me to review the requirements for the animals badge has since expired, so I had to wing it and try to recall what all was needed for earning it - and I am pretty sure that with having the tour and my daughter wanting to volunteer, that I will go ahead and add her badge to her sash!
