And To All A Good Night

Our building on 415 Campbell Avenue is a busy one, but at the end of the day things quiet down nicely. Clinic animals go home, floors are swept and mopped, surgical packs are sterilized, paperwork is finished, and some adoption center animals go to permanent or foster homes.

 Many, however, are left at the center, and as they settle in for the night all is remarkably still- a huge contrast to the hustle and bustle during daylight hours. As they snuggle in their beds and are perfectly quiet and good, we give them a final treat, and a mental promise them that tomorrow will be another day, and we will never, ever give up on finding them a home of their own. We thank all of the volunteers for helping these promises come true- we have had record breaking adoption and foster numbers over the summer and fall. Keep up the good work!

Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'..."
~ Alfred Tennyson
