For all our friends who celebrate Thanksgiving, we wish you a blessed day. For those who don't live in a country that celebrates Thanksgiving, we wish you a blessed day too.
We had kind of an early holiday present. As we've mentioned in other posts, Jan missed taking photos of the county shelter animals. She used to take them through the local Humane Society for a newspaper ad. Beginning yesterday, she volunteers to take photos once a week to help the shelter manager update the Petfinder page. There was an interesting moment when one trustee was holding two small dogs and they needed to be photographed separately. But if he set one down, it could have escaped, so there are a couple of unusual Min Pin poses included. And she wasn't sure whether the cats were being held for the weekend, so just took snaps through the bars. But all things considered, it was an interesting beginning to a new project.
There are some good-looking animals available. Jumper was already on Petfinder but the rest of the photos Jan took yesterday at the Upson County Animal Shelter. Since the hardest part of taking these photos is knowing that few of the animals will be adopted, she hopes the numbers of adoptions will go up and the PTS numbers go down.
