Animal Shelter Volunteer Life! Here's what Kevin & Tracey have to say:
Here's a little bit about us (Kevin, aka "meowmeowmans" and Tracey aka "PAWSVolunteer"):
Tracey and I used to work at the same company many years ago. Our paths crossed again when Tracey began volunteering at PAWS in Norwalk, CT about seven years ago (I had already been volunteering for a number of years). To make a long story short, love blossomed. We are now happily married and still volunteer at the shelter together every weekend. The attached photo was taken in New York's Central Park.
We're often told that volunteering as much time as we do is "nice" and "selfless," but we'd venture to say we get just as much -- if not more -- out of our shelter experiences than the cats. We started the blog as a way to share those experiences, and to help give the kitties at PAWS a little more exposure. We never imagined that in the process, we'd meet so many amazing blogging friends from all over the globe. :)
Here are three of their favorite posts:
We love this post because the video really shows the affection between two cats who met at the shelter. Garth and Valerie ended up being adopted together. :)
This post was a lot of fun to write, and shows off some of the best "selling points" about some of the cats at PAWS.
We feel this post shows how love, patience and persistence can change things for a cat and the people who interact with it. One of the most rewarding things is seeing an extremely frightened animal learn to trust (and like!) people. And when such a cat finds a forever home... euphoria! :)
They have a special need right now for purrs and prayers for Maggie, so go check out Animal Shelter Volunteer Life and give them some PBU love!
