STG has gone to the dogs!

Today was certainly tiring. I had spend-the-night company (and we certainly stayed up too late), and after she went home I went to volunteer with a local animal rescue group like I always do. Every Saturday the group brings down the dogs they’re fostering and tries to adopt them out at our local PetSmart. I go down there and do whatever I can- direct the customers, walk the dogs, clean up, give them food and water, and anything else that needs to be done. Here are some of the volunteers (I changed their names just in case).

Dee: She runs the whole thing, and is a real sweetie.
Nora: Noel is amazing too. She fosters a big majority of the dogs.
Jane: Another one of the main adult volunteers. I absolutely LOVE her.
Jessie: Noel’s daughter. She’s 17 years old, washes dogs at PetSmart, and sometimes comes to volunteer with her mom. She very occasionally comes off as a bit controlling, but most of the time she’s pretty sweet.
Abby: She’s thirteen, nearly fourteen (like me!). I gained newfound respect for her after she let me draw really random stuff ALL OVER her arms (in Sharpie, no less) in red and black. Only a very courageous person would wear my drawings on their arms.
Jayna: One of my best friends! She’s another teen volunteer (age 14), although she doesn’t come as much as she used to. Grr.
Warren: This guy really bugs me sometimes. He’s always contradicting himself, and it’s kind of evident he has a crush on me. I figured that out when he timed how long it took for me to walk a dog.
Now, of course there are more volunteers, but I don’t feel like listing them.

Anyways, today somebody brought in a new little puppy. She’s a German shepard-beagle mix (we think she’s about 12 weeks old), and I named her Lucy. But the thing is, the woman said that she found little Lucy in her yard all alone with an embedded collar. Now, most of the fur on her neck where the collar was is gone. Her wounds look INCREDIBLY painful. It really makes me sick, knowing somebody would allow poor Lucy’s collar to become embedded into her neck. Honestly, it’s times like this that I wish cussing wasn’t against my moral standards, because I’d definitely like to shout a couple of colorful words at whoever did this to my Lucy Loo. However, Lucy was in good spirits- the woman who found Lucy in her yard was taking great care of her (but she can’t keep her, due to health reasons). That dog’s a real sweetie, and a cuddlebug to boot! I just hope she makes a speedy recovery, and that whoever did this to her does some serious thinking about proper animal care.

PS- sorry about the terrible blog title. Hah.

    I don’t know about volunteering with PetSmart itself- I volunteer with the animal rescue group that brings their dogs there every Saturday. So it’s not really PetSmart I’m working with. But I’ll bet you can find a couple of local rescue groups in your town that would love volunteers! There are actually a lot of them all over the place.
