I’m allergic to: cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, alpacas, goats, hay, cows, horses…
I went haying every summer.
I break out in hives every time I work.
I’d get sinus infections cleaning the cob webs at the goat dairy.
fuck you, seriously.
Seriously work is just too much right now.
We’ve had to turn one of our rooms into a second ISO
Thrity cats have URIs and five of them are horribly, horribly sick.
Our Puppy Playroom now houses 6 or 7 rabbits. And our break room has puppies and momma.
I medicated EVERYONE and came out to find everyone goofing off and talking. waiting for me… because no one else is capable of medicating…
I just can’t stand to see them so ill. I wish I could take them home and take proper care of them.
I suppose the worst part is that the community expects so much of us. They can’t comprehend we simply don’t have space for 7 kittens with URIs so bad their eyes are glued shut with green mucus. But we take them anyways and my boss cares for them, her two other fosters and her second job.
Again, to people who hate shelters, take a look at yourself. What are YOU doing to help? Nothing? Then shut up.
Paychecks are nice considering we work in a shelter, but the people I work with live paycheck to paycheck. There is NO MONEY IN ANIMAL CARE. Ever. Period.
I don’t know how people in California even manage.
How I explained the 7 kittens and 5 cats that magically appeared while she was on an hour lunch….
(Six different people too, not just all together. In pieces. Ha.)
Just another day at the shelter….
We went off of that analogy for a while. It was pretty entertaining.
Talking about scraping cats off walls with poop scoopers.
He has heartworm and he has been so unhappy and he is just the loviest guy in the world and he got adopted by a guy that has worked in the animal field.
he gets to finish his treatment and go home to a house and couch and YAYYY.
and there is two acres!
and he is gonna be so happy!
