people helping in the community just because
From the Humane Society:
The sweet and thoughtful Washtenaw Dairy drove up to HSHV today with pup cups for all the dogs!! They’d heard that we have a FULL shelter and brought enough for all the dogs to enjoy a cold treat on this hot day. Not to mention bringing donuts for the humans at HSHV! What a wonderful surprise, thank you Washtenaw Dairy
Response from the Dairy:
Every day is a fun day working at Washtenaw Dairy but today was extra cool! Thanks so much to HSHV for allowing us to pop in today and treat all the dogs at the shelter with pup cups. We are excited to see these sweet dogs find their Forever homes! Their shelters are full right now. A lot of Covid puppies coming back.We wanted to do some thing to showcase their Empty the Shelter event and spoil all the pups that were there.
Thank you for all you do for all the animals in our community!

finding shelter today by the river
“maybe we need to shelter ourselves so we see the beautiful.”
proud to have worked really hard
with my colleagues
on this chilly fall morning
to help to make the shelter
a better place for those who need it
put their garden
to bed this fall
new possibilities there
for them to awaken to next spring.
and we have added to our family once again.
this handsome fellow,
weighing in at just 8 pounds
and 8 years old
has lived a hard life
first on his own
on the mean streets
with scars, and cuts, and ruffled fur
then with a family
who may not have fully appreciated his charms
and he was sent away
to spend his days in a small cage
with nothing but an uncertain future
and a short timeline ahead
but he has persevered
against all odds.
and when we walked into the shelter
and he reached
a tiny ginger paw
out of his cell
to wave to us
and called out
with a little voice
he had been waiting a long time
to meet us
we had been waiting a long time
to meet him.
we carried him into the cottage
was instantly transformed
the most affectionate and gentle cat
we have ever met
and knew that he was home at last.
(he has been lovingly named nacho, and he is the furry one with the orange hair.)
