THE STORY:

In dog years I’m dead.

Yep. It’s happening. I’m turning 50 and I’m not happy about it. Oprah did it first. When she turned 50, Oprah posted “Wow, I can hardly believe it’s here! I made it. Fifty. Me.”

Whatever.

I don’t want to be 350 in dog years!

Not that I hate dogs. Seriously. I love dogs! I love cats too! I love all animals (except scorpions!). Sooooo….I thought maybe I could turn this not-so-fun event into something fun! You guessed it – something that would benefit the animals of Stephens County Humane Society!!

Stephens County Humane Society is an amazing organization! Staff members who work 365 days a year to feed, clean and love the animals brought to the shelter. Board members who give up vacations, family time and hard-earned funds to support the mission that they believe to be SCHS. Our vet who lives and breathes shelter medicine. Most of all – the supporters who send money, gifts and prayers just when we need them!

The SCHS shelter is a place of hope for me. Some might think that it’s a sad place, where animals are kept in barren cold kennels. Not me - I see animals who receive food, medicine, a safe comfortable bed – and most of all – a soft touch and a loving voice. Each day we adopt animals into loving homes – only to fill up again – an unending stream of unwanted animals. Each day we fundraise so we can take in more animals. I would love for my birthday to be meaningful for these animals!

It would be amazing if 25 of my friends and family were to donate $20 each to my “passion” in honor of my 350th dog year.

$500 would make a HUGE difference to our animals at SCHS! In fact – it could:
• send 20 dogs on transport to a rescue in Colorado
• spay/neuter 20 cats
• Purchase 2 weeks worth of surgery supplies for our mobile spay/neuter clinic.

So much good could be done!!!

And I promise not to complain ever again about turning 50!

Love you - and thank you,

Kelly
