Nancy and Harold discuss three animal rescue events that made last weekend great. And exhausting. But mostly great!
On Friday, Nancy helped with a Wings of Rescue flight, the third one of 2017 Nancy worked on. She worked hard to coordinate the flight of sixteen dogs from Northern California to a variety of no-kill shelters in Spokane, Washington. Nancy shares some of her thoughts from that day.
On Saturday, Nancy and Harold attended the Business of Saving Lives conference which brings together many animal rescue people from the San Francisco Bay Area. It was the thirteenth annual event at Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation. Some great speakers, including Dr. Regan McGowan; Erin Kerley and Audra Farrell; Renee Harris; and especially, Dr. Kate Hurley.
On Sunday, it was St. Pitty’s Day at Contra Costa Animal Services, an event that attracts potential adopters to meet a wide variety of dogs from Contra Costa Animal Services and other rescue organizations. Nancy and Harold discuss the adoption of Sedona, a beautiful pitbull mix.
