It's Cruiser & Josie's World...

I'm just living in it.

Every year when I sit down to write "my story" or who I am walking in honor of this year, it is my time to reflect on my professional and well very personal journey this past year. Who we've helped, who we have impacted, and who's story I got to tell to our community and supporters. This year, and well, let's be honest, the one before that was one for the books. It's been two years of so many changes and adapting. A year of, okays, we do this now. A year of moving thousands of pounds of pet food and distributing it to our communities and having to go to a chiropractor for the first time in my life. A year of so many struggles for so many. A year of heartbreaking challenges. A year of so many late nights at my desk or at an emergency vet, a lot of tears, and a lot of personal and professional growth and change. But one thing has remained a constant anchor in choppy seas; my dogs. 

To them – we are home, we are healthy, we are happy and we are together. And I know, that is not the case for everyone.

Our pets were the heroes for so many the last couple of years. They provided companionship and comfort and love. They got us up and moving when the world seemed to be at a standstill. They made us laugh when what we were and still are witnessing is so grim. 

And I know so many people that love animals struggle with the concept of ever giving up their pets for whatever the reason, or not taking them to the vet when they are sick, or not having food for them. But I can assure you, that we are their last resort. 

The Potter League exists to be a safety net for the community. We provide shelter, food, care, and so many other programs and services to thousands of pets and the people who love them. 

So this year, on October 24, I am walking in the Heart & Sole Walk for Animals in honor of my heroes. My co-workers who never ever give up and my two furry best friends, Cruiser & Josie. 

Will you support my efforts to raise money to help the animals and everything we do at the Potter League? Your donation will help provide food, medical care and a second chance for thousands of homeless animals this year. In addition, you will be supporting the spay/neuter program, behavior helpline, mobile food pantry and outreach clinics. These are only a few of the many programs provided by the Potter League.

Your gift will help ensure that the Potter League can continue to be there for the animals no matter what comes our way. I truly appreciate your friendship and support, as do the animals and entire team at the Potter League for Animals. 

Thank you.
