The Comfort of Critters
As I muddle my way through this pandemic reality, my happiest moments each day are on walks with my Josie - a Southern belle and CVHS rescue. My racing thoughts recede and I savor her wild joy as she delights in the scents of spring But what if, through no fault of your own, you lost your job and are struggling to get food on the table, or maybe your living situation is compromised. You might be faced with some difficult choices such as surrendering your beloved animal.
This sad scenario is rampant around the country but please know that our brave little shelter is braced to help families keep their pets and if needed, help them find new loving homes. I'm a trustee of CVHS and one of our Board's mantras is "that animal problems are people problems" and now we have more than enough to go around.
And wouldn’t you just know it that The Walk For Animals, our happiest and by far our most important fundraising event of the year cannot take place in person or should I saw "in dog". But our CVHS has an innovative plan, a Virtual Walk for Animals!!!
Your support is critical, perhaps more than ever as the shelter faces huge deficits due to a cascade of events that have dramatically reduced revenue: We can’t bring dogs from the South now and for the foreseeable future, training classes are summer camps are curtailed and the list goes on. Like so many others, we anxiously await news whetherFederal relief PPP funds will come through.
So I’m asking you to join me in opening your hearts and your wallets to help CVHS through this very difficult time. Please give generously, maybe form a team yourself and help us spread the word. Your generous support is so deeply appreciated and thank you for all you have done along the way.
