Sharing With Pups In Need ~ #ILoveMyk9 #CBias

With a great haul of treats and pup staples from Walmart, the first order of business for my family was creating a gift basket to share with pups in need of some holiday cheer.

Our empty basket would simply not do!

Fortunately, it was quickly filled with all manner of necessities and treats from our shopping adventure!

Thank goodness this was a family affair!  The bags of  food, especially the 44lb bag of dog food, required the guy's muscle power.

Dropping our donation at the door, we made a bee line for the animals.  Over the long holiday weekend, the Humane Society would be closed on Saturday and we wanted to spread as much cheer to those waiting as we could!  Commandeering the two available dog visiting rooms, the boys played with the larger dogs, while my daughter and I spent quality time with the smaller pups.

As we worked our way through the pens, we were so happy to see several joyous announcements on empty runs!

Although some of our new friends were completely satisfied to have a willing somebody to play fetch with,


it was beyond heart wrenching when some, although quite open to being petted and comforted, were so distracted by the very idea of escaping yet another area of confinement, they were only minimally interactive.

We were so thrilled to see, as we were leaving, that my little friend Peter, a nine year old beagle mix, was leaving for his new home.  As a senior dog, on Friday night, Peter was adoptable for a clearance rate.

On package coupons and budget friendly prices, such as we found for the Milk-Bone®, Pup-Peroni and Milo's Kitchen treats at Walmart, make sharing with pups in need easy and economical.  The appreciation you'll receive for your efforts will fill your heart.

As you snuggle at home with your own four legged family member, or find yourself exploring the treat selection at the store, please remember the pets waiting oh, so patiently, yet full of hope, for their forever homes at your local shelter.

shelter dogs are people too! LOL
but really- they are so great. they have developed personalities, they have so much love to give- all our dogs have been shelter dogs, and we won't have any other kind.

I love this idea. Even though I am not a dog owner I do love dogs, I just don't have the time or space to be a responsible pet owner. But I still would love to do something like this.
Thank you so much for sharing!

We have an adopted shelter dog and he is wonderful. I wish we could give homes to more.

Thanks for sharing such an awe post! Our beloved canine is not a shelter dog, but my SIL's is. He is such a sweetheart. xo

I love this. I would want to take them all home. It is true. Shelter dogs make the best dogs

What a great thing too do! I know you made some pups very happy!

Terri said...

Thanks for all the kind comments, everyone! We were so glad that one of the pups found a forever home that night and that the Humane Society was working so hard to encourage the adoptions of the harder to place animals, like the senior pets. Every time I think of poor Peter being on clearance, I just bawl like a baby! Whatever it takes, though!

I love this idea and you have to be a strong person not to load them all up and bring them home with you! Maybe this year I'll try and do something like this on a regular basis.
