Another anniversary!

Tomorrow, November 22nd, is my one year anniversary at the Humane Society of Indianapolis. It's been a wonderful experience, and one of the most fulfilling/frustrating parts of working there has been fostering shelter animals in our home.

I love my job and my coworkers (I think because they love their jobs too), and the work provides meaning to my life. Certainly, there are challenges and frustrating days (and patrons), but looking into their little faces reminds me of my purpose.

My first fosters - a litter of kittens named after Glee characters -

Emma Pillsbury


Jo Jo Ridgebottom

Fred (fostered him several times for various illnesses!)


Velma (wanted to keep her but she wasn't all that great with cats)

And finally, my current fosters - momma and puppies. You are all my witnesses - I will never foster chihuahua puppies again!


GretelHansel Rapunzel

And Snow White, the momma (we call her Buena because she's a good girl!)

“Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”
