I volunteer for an animal shelter called ArfHouse. (www.arfhousechicago.org)
and every few months we drive down to the Arf House rescue ranch in
Sherman, Texas where there are over 400 dogs... and we pack up as many as we can in a van and drive them back here to Chicago where there is a higher adoption rate (than in Sherman).
It's a long drive but itz really fun and itz all for helpin the furry beasts.
the ranch itself is great. there's only like 5 volunteers on the ranch for all 400 dogs but they all get taken care of. Itz actually an amazing place (if you're a dog lover)...despite it being full of homeless dogs.
a large portion of the population runs the grounds in packs.
if you've never been out in the middle of Texas in the middle of the night on a ranch with 400 dogs, half of them howling, and the only light is the
cluster of stars above you and the reflection off the eyes of 50 free roaming pack-oriented homeless dogs.... it really is something else.
anyways... that's what I'm doin this weekend. drivin down with some volunteers... spending a few days helpin out on the ranch with cleaning and vaccinations and baths... and then loading up a van with some critters
and makin the drive back to Chicago where they can be adopted out.
Arf House has a 99% adoption rate (hell, three of my dogs are from arfhouse), so they'll all find homes. anyways... what are YOU doin
this comin weekend???

^Wow, I never would have the time to get involved in something like that. Much respect given.
Not sure what I'm doing yet. Its my daughters first 4th, even though she doesn't know what it is yet.

Dude, this is too awesome! Much respect!
You'll have to come back to the thread and tell us how it all went, I'm sure everyone would like to know that all went well for the furry fellows!
You got any cats?
