Rain, Rain didn't go away, but we still walked today for the Walk-A-Thon

Few photos from the Walk-A-Thon today for the Animal Shelter in Amherst starting and finishing at the Amherst Stadium. This devoted group walked almost 5 KM's in the rain and wind, the dogs didn't seems to mind as much as their human friends. After the Walk-A-Thon everyone was invited over to a BBQ to dry out and chat. Good times in the Maritimes.

Thank You to all our supporters for their pledges, every dollar was earned this year. Can someone pray for sun next year?

Dogs, Cats, Racoons?

Nothing ever surprises the staff at the Animal Shelter, someone dropped off a bucket of racoon babies tonight after hours they rushed in the driveway with a brown car and spun their tires quickly getting away from the shelter, showing in the photos the baby racoons eyes are not even open yet.

Of course the shelter can not keep the 4 racoons with the many disease these little guys carry, DNR has been called to come and pick up the racoons. But this is my first experience seeing racoons babies and with some gloves we got to pick them up, poor little things were crying not having a clue what is going on.
