Friendship Hospital for Animals celebrated their 75th anniversary with an absolutely awesome adoption event. Their goal was to place 75 homeless cats and dogs into permanent, loving homes. From 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Saturday & Sunday a steady stream of special folks opened their hearts and homes to kittens, cats, puppies and dogs. Some of the animals were even adopted by Friendship staff! The mom cat and kitten who visited me in my office last week went home to a mom and daughter duo. I think that the kitten's forever name is now Clementine, mom's new name was still being discussed at the time of the adoption.

Our shelter is nearly empty. But, as always, we will be full by tomorrow. League staff are traveling to other shelters today to pick up animals ready to move into their forever homes. Hope those homes are safer than mine. Here is a recent picture of Charlotte relaxing on the piano bench. I am happy to report that no major mishaps have occured since Charlotte's mysterious ear hacking episode last month.
