Transport Days Are Always Fun

Today was a transport day at No More Homeless Pets KC. We picked up animals from the Leavenworth County Humane Society and brought them to NMHPKC for surgery. Thirty one animals were transported today and will be returned tomorrow morning. All of these dogs and cats come to us for spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations. These days are always busy (as they are just now finishing with surgery at 5:00pm), but we all know how very important they are to the communities we help serve!

This is the true joy in life - being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.  ~George Bernard Shaw

A Busy Week

While love is in the air this Valentine's Day, all of us at No More Homeless Pets KC are gearing up for what is looking to be a very busy week. Including yesterday's Sunday Cat Clinic, nearly 250 animals are scheduled to be altered this week. Let's just imagine if each of these animals were not getting altered and were responsible for one litter of five, there would be another 1,250 animals looking for homes. Because of the work being done just this week, we are helping to stop this from happening.

This Valentine's Day is being spent working hard, gearing up for a long week and helping to save the lives of countless animals in our local shelter. To me, that sounds like the best Valentine's Day possible!

How do you plan to spend your Valentine's Day?
