I've always loved dogs. Herding dogs are my favorite. I realize that my two beautiful dogs have so much going for them. Completely spoiled. Upon arriving at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington, I realized that not all dogs have the benefit of loving homes.
It is a privilege to be able to lend my passion for marketing to help the dogs and cats of Clark County. This year, we were able to find homes for more than 4,400 animals...an all-time record.
Everyday, there are so many stories and memories made. A year or so ago, we had two completely white Aussies named Snow and Charming. They were a bonded pair, blind and one was deaf because of poor breeding practices. Their needs were immense and I couldn't imagine who would possibly adopt two special dogs with so many needs and restrictions.
If you wait long enough, a perfect person comes along. A woman, who is a freelance writer and lives in a single story house and works from home, adopted them. We call it matchmaking and completing families. Staff came from all over our building to say good bye to these two favorites. There were a lot of tears that day.
I'm fundraising in honor of my two dogs, Kitt and Dixie, and more than 8,000 animals that HSSW will care for, feed, provide medical assistance and love.
