I so appreciate the honor of being nominated York fest Queen. Both Jan Bestwick and Pat Carpenter were also very deserving of their efforts to make a difference in their volunteering of so many causes. I feel that having volunteered for York Adopt a Pet these 20 some years are more rewarding than the time and effort I have put forth. There are many, many hours of volunteering being done each and every day by many people. Thankfully mine was doing something that I truly loved to do.
This coming Sept. 21, Jay and I will celebrate 45 years of wedded bliss … well, marriage! As dog (pet) lovers we have welcomed quite a few into our family. Plus, we’ve been lucky enough to have made the acquaintance of our friends’ canines. Each of these dogs has been unique, just like the people who reside in their homes.
The frosting on the cake for someone involved in animal rescue is rescuing an animal, caring for the animal and securing a successful and loving home for the animal. When it includes more than one cat or kitten at a time, the frosting is even sweeter.
Among the dogs currently available at York Adopt-A-Pet, there are four that are desperately in need of that special family; a family with enough love, patience and time to restore their trust in humans. These four had the misfortune of growing up in a hoarding situation where no love, no affection, no personal attention came their way. Hard lessons to learn, even harder lessons to be unlearned.
Last week I ended my column by Paul Harvey’s famous “Join me next week for the rest of the story.” So today is “Page 2” the rest of the story.
Every day a person can learn from an experience or mistake. I learned two lessons this week. The first lesson came when taking four small kittens and two kennels of adults from my house to have their professional pictures taken at York Adopt a Pet.The lesson was when you take said kittens home, be certain you are not accidently taking a fifth kitten home. Especially when it is a black and white little female who looks exactly like the little black and white male kitten that you are fostering.
