all i can say about the last two days is wow

first and foremost...the saints animals are totally amazing..they cast their spells of pure hearted goodness outwards to everyone they meet.
and then there are our volunteers who donate their hands, their hearts and their souls to the animals who live here.
and finally to the public who is so appreciative and generous in helping us care for them.
my favorite moments...meanie sweetie curled up on the couch so close and comfortable with one of our special volunteers..the little child who carried tina so gently and lovingly and wanted to take her home with her. saying good bye to sidney and hootie as they FINALLY found their home TOGETHER...and saying goodbye to sir walter cabot as he went off to his new home...i really adored that old dog.
there may be a couple of other adoptions coming from the folks who met our special ones today.
oh and guess who won the maui bowie raffle???...ashley's grandma won it today! i told ashley she can't go with her grandma..she just got back from her last holiday and we missed her so she can't go again!
but as always it wasn't all great stuff today...fergus had a seizure. but he did recover quite well.
and apparently we have a new cat...and an expensive one. she was attacked by a dog this morning (not one of our dogs!) over in the school yard and was quite badly hurt. we took her down to the vets..she has some puncture wounds, is in shock and probably has a head trauma/ her bloodwork is back and not too bad,,her xrays showed her lungs are ok and no obvious fractures. but she is bleeding out of her nose so she is staying in on IV's for now. she has no tattoo or microchip and she is de-clawed (poor baby)..no defence against an aggressive dog. we have named her "cash" cuz she is probably eating up a good chunk of the donations we received today...which by the way was another $2400...so truly thank you every one so much, at least we can pay her vet bill tomorrow (she is at a balance due upon discharge vet..not one of our regular ones) when she comes home!!!!
anyway..it was a great two days here..and we did save another one even tho i said we are full (funny how that works..just bring a bleeding and injured animal here and there goes the NO MORE ANIMALS for now rule!)
but ALL of us...volunteer and animal..are totally and completely bagged...we will all sleep well tonight i bet.
(and shhh..the best part of today? i got to see annabelle..and yes she is still the very cutest baby in the whole wide world!!!)
