Something else that always grabs my attention while driving is the number of "Street People" wandering around with their beloved dogs. I try to keep blankets, dog food,treats, waters, people food and toiletries in my vehicle so I have something to share with them. I am in awe of people who have so little yet share what they do have with their furry companions. This past week I stopped and introduced myself to a few of these people and met their furbabies. After them telling me how hard it is to have non licensed dogs when the police come around I told them I would use my facebook page to get pledges to help them spay, neuter, vaccinate and license their animals. I picked a woman and her boyfriend and their two dogs to start. I was so excited to have raised enough funds to take the dogs in and there were promises for more which would pay for their vaccinations and licensing. Each time I would see this woman she would run up and hug me but today there was a misunderstanding with her believing I was trying to "force" her to neuter the male dog and she stormed down the street and refused to speak to me again. I am not giving up but I am stepping back and will continue to help where I can in hopes that when Mary comes around I can spay her female dog and get the vaccinations regardless of whether she ever allows me to neuter the male. I will continue checking out organizations I can utilize for helping anyone on the street who can use a hand but especially those who choose to take on the added responsibility of an animal. Much of society has given up on them and maybe rightfully so in certain situations but I cannot turn away now.
Last but not least is business. How wonderful it will be the day I am taking in enough to really make a difference through donations. During the past year KIDS AGAINST ANIMAL CRUELTY and
RICH DELIGHTS have done a great job Paying It Forward in many places that needed the help. Rich Delights will continue donating 10% of all sales to KAAC and if our new Paw Pops are ordered they get 15% of all sales from them. It is a win win situation. People get delicious baked goods and treats and money is either donated or used to buy things for animals in need. Rich Delights is:The Treat That Gives Back~And I will continue Baking4You!
