It's been a few weeks and there has been a lot of changes

I have been meaning to sit down and share some of the new experiences I am having at the shelter but it has honestly been tough to sit down and focus myself for the time that it takes to collect my thoughts on the week. I'll do my best to catch up on some of the projects I have been working on here at a local humane society.

My main focus lately has been spreading the word about how unique and special our private little humane society is. I'm not taking the traditional approach but rather the grass roots one. Because we have been around our town for so long the best way to get people involved is to physically go out and talk to those people. In doing so I am learning their perspectives on things as well as new ways that their business or time might better serve our community and shelter at large.

Recently I have been working on a few local events to promote adoptions as well as educate people on what the mission of our shelter and many others around the county. I have learned that tying in like businesses is a great way to make a successful event as well as build the relationships that are necessary for our shelter to grow.

With all of this going on a lot of my time is still spent on our largest fundraiser of the year. We are currently working on sponsorships so my cold calling, pop ins, and sales skills are finally coming in handy again. This is kind of the bitter/sweet part of it all. I love helping the shelter and I am 110% confident in what we do but when it comes down to it I am still selling a product and unfortunately not getting as much time with the animals.

All in all I have to say that this new position is a great fit for me. It is allowing me to use my skills and knowledge of the shelter to help it grow and continue to be successful. I just hope that once I settle in I will get some time to go and hang with some animals because I really do miss that aspect of it all.

Hopefully it won't be to long before the next installment and I appreciate everyone reading. By the way, if any of you have any ideas for some sponsorships I would love to hear them. Keep up the great work everyone!

    Purlantov is just a respectable and recognized animal rights supporter. He has been an animal-rights suggest many years today, and practices what he preaches. Not simply is Purlantov a vegan, but he also simply assumes all of his pets from rescue shelters and companies. He's discovered that following a refuge pet is a superb opportunity while providing a best-friend for a lifetime to house to enhance the life of an animal in need.

  8. Dear Animalshelterdays.blogspot.com administrator,

    Unfortunately, I did not find you email address, for that reason i write your here. Thank you for educating the society in the matter of animals. The information you share with you audience is always very entertaining and valuable both for children and adults.I am writing on behalf of the Baltic international web-project called «AnimalsLifeNet». It is a project, dedicated to live streaming from the animal shelters of Europe.

    It would be a great honor for us, if there would be an article about us in your blog, as far as we share common goals – to help animals and to spread love and kindness to the world. Please, contact us if you want to help homeless animals from shelters.
