Shelter Drive By: Snorgles and Food

So before I left for Nicaragua, I wanted to make sure I got my shelter drive-by done and set in honor of our Shelter Appreciation Week Blog Hop. If you missed the post talking about why we are doing it, click here– please consider featuring your own local shelter this week so Blog Paws can make a $2000 donation! Get your posts done this week and then join the Blog Hop!

The whole point of the shelter drive by is to keep it simple. Simple is doable and unobtrusive and repeatable. I brought a bag of food to Helen Woodward Animal Center.

Helen Woodward, if you didn’t know, is the birthplace of the Iams Home 4 the Holidays campaign, so I can’t think of a more fitting place to do my shelter drive by. They do all sorts of amazing things with the community like animal assisted therapy, therapeutic horse riding, and humane education for kids in addition to their adoption program. I donated to the Meals on Wheels bin, where the food will be distributed to elderly pet owners who need assistance from Meals on Wheels.

It took about two seconds.

And the benefits!

I got to see Mike Arms, the man who initiated this whole campaign. Lucky me!

AND I got to snorgle, smooch and otherwise love on Present, the most adorable little smoochy puggy chihuahua mix that ever existed.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I love doing these.

Please consider joining me in this great and easy way to support your local shelter!
