Sitting in clean, empty dog kennels with huge beaming smiles on their faces, these volunteers are celebrating a job well-done as over 800 pets start a new chapter in life. Hitting a record-breaking number, they were able to adopt out over 800 animals during a three-day pet adoption event in Kansas City Missouri. All their hard work paid off, and now hundreds of animals get to begin new lives in their happy, forever homes. It's a very joyous day for many fur babies and volunteers.
Having volunteered at a no-kill dog shelter for over six years, I can still remember the joy that all of us volunteers would experience every time a dog was adopted into its forever home. After pouring our hearts and souls into these lost, sad, and abandoned or neglected dogs, we couldn't help but become excited for their new chapter and second chance to live a full and blissful life.
Volunteer's put a lot of determination, time, and hard work into finding the perfect homes for so many beloved fur babies. Sometimes the process of placing shelter animals into a new home can take days, other times it can drag on for weeks and, on occasion, it can be months. No matter how long it takes, you can't give up on any of these beautiful fur babies; you must trust and believe that destiny has an extraordinary plan for all these loyal companions. That's why this incredible story is so dear to my heart. If you're like me and look forward to the day that a dog is saved or rescued, then you'll enjoy watching the cheering and joyous celebrating that goes on in the video, below! It's one that will brighten your day and make you smile!
