Visited ARF today to take some dontations given by community members. These people work so hard. Did a walk through and came to appreciate what it takes to do this kind of work. I saw very few dog that were sick or looked bad. The one that I did see that was thin and bruised was a dog recently left at the shelter over night. I saw healthy happy puppies. Clean and playful. The staff was very friendly. Both the Director and her husband were on site and both were engaging with the staff and the dogs. They showed me their adoption records for the past year. Hundreds of dogs and cats adopted. The cat room was clean and those cats are having so much fun! No, it's not perfect. How could it be? But I was so glad to see that these dogs and cats had hope for a better future.
