We all have our passions in life, some of us in collections, some of us is skiing, four wheeling, reading or travelling. I chose to help shelters in our area. Let’s start at the beginning. I met a wonderful woman , Dr. Mildred Drost, a vet who was just starting the Dun Roamin Stray and Rescue. I adopted a wonderful dog, Harley whose first few years had been hard but have over the years spoiled him rotten, along the way I adopted another dog, Cleo so that Harley had a buddy to keep him company. Over the years I watched the Dun Roamin Stray and Rescue grow and thought that I would help out in some way so sat down and thought “What could make a difference to help out” so came up with the idea that I would collect food, cleaning supplies, toys, etc, so I thought that if I could collect enough food that the rescue wouldn’t have to buy than the money that they raised could go to the medical needs of the dogs and cats.
I have set aside the full month of November every year. We have now included another shelter that needs our help. I have just completed the 6th year of the “Fill A Pantry For A Pet” and the food collected should get the rescue and the shelter through at least 6 months without having to buy food or cleaning supplies. My goal is to collect enough food and cleaning supplies to last for a full year. One day I would like to expand and have other shelters doing the same thing so all neglected, abused and abandoned dogs and cats are looked after.
