There are days when I love my job more than others. Two Tuesdays ago was one of those days. My office brought in the Cleveland APL and Mason's Creamery for "Puppies and Ice Cream" in which we were able to enjoy a tasty sundae made from Mason's best flavors in exchange for donations to the APL. The APL volunteers brought in two adoptable dogs, Sissy Lee and Slinky, as well as a few kittens. I don't remember all of the cats' names, but I do remember an adorable little white one named Harold. I seriously love when animals have human names, by the way.
Our company as well as the team from the Holiday Inn (we share a building) raised $1,000 for the APL and brought more awareness to these loveable fur friends. Check out some of the pictures from the event below. Some were taken by me and a few others were taken by my co-worker Maggie (you can check out her stories at Twin Parenting). I'm not sure if these animals have been adopted, but regardless you can visit the APL's adoption pages to see all of the pets looking for good homes.

Today is the deadline for submissions for the Cleveland APL's Pet Calendar Contest. The entry fee is $25 and all proceeds benefit the Cleveland APL. All animals will be featured in the calendar and 12 will be chosen as Pet of the Month. You can get all the details and submit your photo here. Good luck!
I just received word that the Cleveland Kennel is offering free adoptions (aka waiving the current $61 adoption fee) until June 7. This effort is in support of Ohio Animal Week, which celebrates animals and how they enrich our lives. Of course, if you can't adopt a new furry friend you can still donate to the kennel and help them with food and pet supplies.
I'm just a twenty-something female raising the weirdest dog I've ever met.
