From Kimberly Rios

I am raising money to help my local animal shelter. I recently went to visit and saw how over crowded they are. This money will go directly towards helping the shelter in getting the animals adopted.

Here is my story. I am not a writer, a blogger, etc. I am just a normal person who witnessed something that broke my heart. It started out on a regular Tuesday when I was having my weekly date with my 3 year old son. We got some food, bought a toy for the bath, then went to the park except we decided to stop by the animal shelter before going to the park. I hadn't been since before COVID and wanted to go see the animals again. When I walked inside my heart dropped. There were so many kittens in the lobby(normally no dogs or cats were in the lobby area) and then the more I walked around I saw almost every kennel was full with a furry animal. I asked what they needed and the guy at the front desk told me they need litter for the kittens but honestly it seemed like a temporary fix. So I went home and brainstormed and decided to try to raise money so I could make a welcome bag for all new pet parents who adopt. I thought about why people surrender their pets and how I could help. For cats and dogs I have found great resources and bought 100 folders to fill with tips on bringing home an adopted pet. I figure this way pet parents will know what to expect, how to handle issues that may arise and who to reach out to if they have any questions. On top of this I want to make 100 "Home Sweet Home Bags" for all new pet parents. The dog ones will include a leash, collar, and chew toy(bc anxious dogs tend to destroy furniture, etc) and the cat ones will include a collar, hangable scratching post, and catnip spray(bc cats like to scratch everything they can when moving to a new home). 

Literally every dollar counts so if you can donate anything it would mean the world to me! If somehow I exceed this goal then I plan to donate the remaining funds to the Spay Neuter Network. Thank you so much for reading this and if you can't donate please share!
