It was the kind of day where I put my coat on and left the house at 10:30. I didn't take it off until 4:30 this afternoon. I never stopped today! From the foster parent's home, to Petsmart, to the shelter, to the vets, to the pet store for cat food, to a doctor's appointment, to the pharmacy. I didn't have lunch until I dropped off a cat at a foster home, and she had turkey rice soup for me - to go! Bless her heart...it was the only food I had all day! (Note to my family: Dinner is going to be late and I dare you to complain about it!
Whew....(insert deep breath here)
Happy New Year to all! Last year, on January 3rd I officially opened my rescue. It's been a year, and we've had 495 adoptions during the course of the year. That's a staggering number to me. I never thought that our little rescue would find homes for almost 500 cats! I don't know what I expected, but I don't think I expected that many! I had sent out a "Merry Christmas" email to our foster parents the week before Christmas and announced 481 adoptions - but we ended up with 14 more adoptions before the end of the year!
Yesterday, we opened at TWO Petsmart stores. Thank heavens for our volunteers - I couldn't come close to doing what they did yesterday! We ended up with NINE adoptions between both stores on the first day!
Thanks for allowing me a brag-fest today. I feel very blessed. There are rescues who do more, and rescues who do less - it's all about the cats. When one finds a home, I'm happy.
Happy One Year Anniversary to our little rescue, and Happy Four Year Anniversary to my blog. I'm so proud of everything we've accomplished - the good, the bad, and everything in between. But most importantly, thank you for taking the Rescue Rollercoaster Ride with me...
