I LOVE Our Volunteers!

Some of the wonderful OARS volunteers who helped out at the booth: Nicole, Corey, Amy, Louise, Robin, me and Jennifer.

Wow, what a great event! The Valley Pet Expo was held this weekend in Appleton up at Player's Choice. We had a great volunteer turn-out, it is just awesome to see how many wonderful local supporters we have, all in it to help save more homeless pets!

The event overall was great - we met a lot of wonderful fellow rescuers, learned a lot of exciting new things, and got to play with cats and dogs. Our booth also won second place and we raised nearly $550, which is really needed right now to help us purchase our Adoption Center we are all dreaming of. And, the best part is, we adopted out 4 kittens! Woo hoo!

  1. Hi Emily,
    Just wanted you to know that I stopped by your booth but missed you both times. I had an enjoyable conversation with Amy and her little fur pal. All of the volunteers were doing a great job!
    PS: Thank you to all who loved and cared for Doodle...
