My desk looks like a war zone. Honestly, I haven't been this far behind on admin work in months! Fortunately, it was all worthwhile as our weekend adoption event at Petsmart last weekend was a HUGE success. We had SEVENTEEN adoptions for the weekend and were left with 4 sweet kittens left in their cages this morning.
Needless to say, I was out rescuing again this morning to "replenish" supply. :) Err...should I say "one of our dedicated volunteers was rescuing today". *I* was setting things in place for our placement in a local Pet-Valu tomorrow! We have two really cute kittens going into a large ferrett cage tomorrow. I hope the store manager there is pleased.
Speaking of "Dedicated Volunteers", this blog post wouldn't be worth a damn unless I recognized several of our volunteers who went over and beyond the call of duty for the adoption weekend. I've never seen an event go off with more pizzazz, class and excitement. Two of our volunteers showed up for ALL THREE DAYS, scooping poop, cleaning cages, doing adoptions and organizing. I basically just had to show up on Friday and Sunday. (Saturday, I was trying to stay married and delivering a cat in the city to his new home!)
Running a classy event is a tricky operation. I was witness to a "not-so-classy" adoption event this weekend and I'm beaming with pride for our little group. "Y'all made us look GOOOOD!"
I'm looking forward to things slowing down for me a little bit. I took two kittens to the vets this afternoon for vaccinations and exams and ended up falling asleep in the chair in his waiting room! My head kept bobbing up and down. I must've looked ridiculous. Hahahhaa!
Time to start dinner and I'm sitting here wondering if I'm better off ordering a pizza. Nah...I did that yesterday. Chinese delivery, perhaps?
