THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
I felt like a broken record. I was constantly gushing about Zeus; wondering why he was still here? All of us were wondering why he was still here! And then suddenly, he was adopted! And to our “dream Zeus adopter”–just look at the two of them. Don’t they just look perfect together? Can’t you envision the adventures these two are on in Colorado? (yes, another out of-state adoption). Thank you to all the volunteers who kept him engaged and happy while he was here: Jan Burrell, Mike Healy, The Durand Family (our expert “Click for Quiet” crew), Maria Valencia, Rosemary Aquilante, Claudia Klokke, Carol Brown… to name just a few. Wait. Were you just wondering what “Click for Quiet” was? I was hoping you’d ask! It’s our positive reinforcement technique to work on dogs’ kennel presentation. Next time you’re out please ask us to show you how to do this–and it’s great for kids to do, too! So why am I still going on and on about Zeus? Because he’s our mission statement in a nutshell: Enriching lives by connecting people and pets. Don’t you think he enriched staff and volunteers’ lives by letting us get to know and love him? And by showering him with love, exercise and enrichments, we made his stay here that much better. Thank you for sharing him on social media, for saying hi to him at the schools and libraries, supporting us in so many ways that allow us to give dogs like him that second chance at a fantastic life.
Happy Tails to you!
