Organizing an adoption event by myself makes me really appreciate our volunteers. I've got lots of help coming to the adoption event, but PLANNING it, is another story. There's hours and hours of planning involved. Lots of emails, phone calls, photocopying and advertising. Which cats go into what cage? Did the foster home remember the health records? Even the small events take a monumental amount of effort.
After all the work and money I've put into the adoption event tomorrow, I find that the local humane society put out a FULL PAGE AD in the local newspaper and is offering cats over the age of 3 years FREE and kittens are $50.00. Yes...$50.00 includes the spay/neuter too. I wonder what it's like to have the kind of money where you can spay/neuter an eight week old kitten and put it up for adoption for 50 bucks.
Of course, now I hear that we're supposed to have a big storm tomorrow too.
It's ok. Whatever happens. Happens. I'll have bad hair. I'm here for the volunteers who are going to spend their coveted Saturday with me and the cats. We'll have a good day regardless of the number of adoptions.
Besides, I might be prejudiced, but we REALLY have some CUTE kittens. Certainly they're worth TWICE the adoption fee. Don't you think?
Twenty kittens are coming tomorrow....Crazy times! :)
