Service Project 4 - Humane Society
Today we stopped by the Humane Society with gifts for the animals.
I'd never been to a Humane Society before. I was really surprised at how clean and unscented it was. The place was crawling with volunteers playing with, brushing, and petting the animals.
I didn't think we'd actually be able to get up close and personal with the animals, but the staff and volunteers were so awesome, they let the kids get right in there and pet and play with the cats and dogs.
I fell in love with a black cat named Ebony. She was so sweet!
Included in our gift basket were pig ears, dog biscuits, wet cat food, balls with bells for the cats, hay, and special waffle shaped treats. The girls also stuffed toilet paper tubes with hay to give to the small and furry animals.
The Humane Society has a list of suggested service projects that we could do. I'd love to do a few more projects throughout the year! Millie has already requested that we go back. SOON.
