Another great day!

Today we went to Bone Appetit and All Fur Love in Washington and set up in the parking lot of their businesses for our second food distribution event and adopt-a-thon.
Only our second time out, and already we did SO much better than our first venture!

We had 5 pallets of dog food that had been donated to us by Best Friends Animal Society that we were distributing to the families of Washington County, and gave almost all of it away in only 3 hours. We were so amazed at the many many people who came to get some dog food and to see our adoptable dogs.

We had many volunteers there who worked very hard handing out dog food, and also helping with our dogs that we had available for adoption.

First and foremost, we'd like to thank Best Friends Animal Society for the donation of dog food, and for all their support so far. They are amazing, and we can't thank them enough.

We'd also like to thank Amy, Bree, and Alice from All Fur Love, and also Natalie from Bone Appetit for offering us their space to use, and also for being there and giving us their help as well. Even though the grooming tables were closed for the day, Amy bathed Mikey for us, as we had brought him straight from the shelter and he was in desperate need of a bath.

Natalie from Bone Appetit donated goodie bags to send home with anyone who adopted a dog. The bags were great and I'm so glad that we got to give one out!

Little Emma got adopted by a fantastic family. She is officially HART's first adopted dog. WOO HOO! Thank you to the Thurstons for opening their hearts and their home to this special little gal.

Andrea from BAM (Because Animals Matter) was also there with Bear, and it was great to have her join us today!

Thank you SO much to everyone who donated to HART. We got some great donations, including a substantial check from Worry Free Pool Service here in St George. MANY Thanks to our supporters. We are off to a great start with such amazing generosity from our community.
