Earth Day for us was Doodletastic!…
Because Mother Nature deserves some appreciation, I became more environmentally responsible and ordered a new kitchen trash bin set – one side designed especially for recyclable products. #Ifeelproud
Later that morning we headed out to spend the day with three of our favorite pet loving places, organizations and bloggers!…
- Pet Supplies Plus – our favorite place for toys, treats, hugs and meeting new friends. #humanandfurry
- Go Pet Friendly – friends that now feel like family after the March Madness Best City for Pet Travelers Tournament last year.
- Charleston Animal Society – my new “go-to” place to share toys, treats and food for those animals awaiting a forever home.
THE PERFECT STORM –
Go Pet Friendly has officially started their “Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip” – 10 months, 48 States experiencing one A-mazing adventure. They spent “Earth Day” at the Charleston Animal Society for a Re-home, Re-love, Rescue Event…
When Amy Burkett messaged me a few weeks ago to let me know Charleston was one of their East Coast stops, I marked our calendar looking forward to connecting with her again.
Amy met Harley last year during the tournament, but she’d never had the pleasure of a few licks and tail wags from Jaxson…
The love connection was instant…
Amy and Rod shared tips and information about traveling with your pets. There were live demo’s, giveaways, and raffle prizes for incredible travel gear along with a live Q&A session on the Charleston Animals Society’s FB page.
CHARLESTON ANIMAL SOCIETY –
In 2012 Charleston built the first no kill community in the Southeast, something many thought was unrealistic. #NoKillNoHarmNoMore
Three years later, they are now recognized as a –
national model in animal shelter excellence.
MORE THAN JUST A SHELTER –
I had no idea Charleston Animal Society offered training classes throughout the year.
Four levels of obedience training, as well as speciality classes –
- Tricks (novice dog obedience)
- Rowdy Reactive Rovers (intensive dog training)
- Pet Therapy Prep
Can’t wait to learn more about trick training for Harley and Pet Therapy Prep for Jaxson. I would love to become more involved – I’d like for the Boys and I to support and help them as much as we can. #jointhemovement
PETS SUPPLIES PLUS –
Because it was “Earth Day” – they encouraged everyone to bring paper towel tubes, tube socks, and plastic Easter eggs – they planned to recycle them into enrichment items for the dogs and cats!
I looked, but you know how it is after you move – you purge – I had nothing 🙁 #oops!
My Doodle cupboards had no extra dog food, treats or unused dog toys to share. I took a chance and gave Pets Supplies Plus a call and they were happy to donate a few things if we didn’t mind coming to the store…
Thanks to the friendliest staff in the land, we had wonderful treats and food to take with us compliments of Pet Supplies Plus…
IT WAS A GREAT DAY! –
Although we were only there for a short time, the foot traffic was steady and the dogs available for adoption looked healthy, happy, and ready for forever homes…
It’s always nice to re-connect with old friends…
…and meet new ones (even if they’re cardboard impawsonators)…
But it’s truly pawsome – to help others when you can…
GOLDEN hugs & DOODLE kisses to –
- Pet Supplies Plus – for your generosity
- Charleston Animal Society – for all that you do for so many
- Go Pet Friendly – for your friendship
Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people ❤️
