New Job! (Finally)

I finally got a job! Well, I got it two weeks ago and have been in a lot of training ever since! I'm actually getting really good hours and because of that I have had NO time to blog. I now work in the adoptions department of Helen Woodward Animal Center. It's basically a REALLY nice and fancy Animal Shelter which also has it's own pet hospital, equine hospital, therapeutic riding center, dog boarding facility, thrift shop, and education center for children. It is amazing! My main job duties are sanitizing kennels, feeding, taking care of the basic needs of the dogs in our care, and the fun part is I get to take potential adopters out to meet the dogs they are interested in. When we have down time I get to take dogs out into the field and play with them! I would say I have one of the funnest and most rewarding jobs in the world. Going home at night and seeing a ton of empty kennels where dogs used to be makes me so happy. I am making a difference and I am so glad I get to help homeless animals find families to love them. I will never again purchase a dog from a private breeder. Spending time at the shelter I have seen what breeders like that are doing to our world. There are so many dogs that need homes and I will adopt all my future pets. There are so many dogs and puppies that go through the shelter that I want to take home. I would if our housing allowed three dogs, but I have reached my max of 2 already. I can't say this enough people. SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS AND ADOPT!!! Now, onto some pictures of my adventures there...mostly just pictures of cute puppies.

  2. Congrats on the job! I love hearing about places like this, it makes my heart happy <3 I have had multiple dogs at all times my entire life and have never bought one from a breeder.. Plus a fun fact: Mixed breeds are usually smarter and healthier than pure bloods ;)

    1. I so agree. I have a mutt and she is the smartest dog I've ever had! Too smart for her own good sometimes!

    1. If I was allowed more dogs, I would already have at least two more at home! You fall in love with them so easily!
