FRIENDS IN NEED
January 24, 2012

For the past year or so I have been volenteering my time helping tend to the needs on abused and neglected animals at Friends in Need. Along with getting the opportunity to share my love with abused and neglected animals, I have also learned much about many different species and how to meet their individual needs. There is one animal in praticular that has captured my heart. Her name is DK (dumpster kitty) she is a cute, fluffy, white, female, persian cat. She gained her name through her tragic story, she was discovered abused and abandoned most likely left to die in a dumpster. She had a huge gash is the top of her head and required much medical attention and care. Thats where Friends in Need stepped in. I have watched an animal that has been through so much and trust humans so little because of it, but as she began to spend time at Friends in Need Ive watched her slowly open up to me and a few individuals. I love Friends in Need! it is such a valuable and beneficial orginzation in our community. Over the past year I have seen the difference and the major impact that Friends in Need has made on both humans and animals. My wish is that I may continue to see such changes continue to take place :) The owners Kim and Karen have set a wonderful example for me and as a college student I have decided to major in business with the intention of one day starting a business just like Friends in Need that makes the world a better place.
