MC Cares: PAWS Atlanta

PAWS

Every few months the company I work for organizes a volunteer opportunity for those who would like to participate. We’ve done all sorts of things – packed lunches for people in need, baked desserts for families with chronically ill children, and today we helped out at an animal shelter.

In between the dog walking, cat cuddling, and fetch playing, we also landscaped a little. Transporting and spreading mulch – no big deal during the Atlanta summer. šŸ˜‰

PAWS Atlanta is a local non-profit and relies heavily on volunteer support. If you’re in the Decatur or Atlanta area, you should really check them out and lend a hand. The staff is really nice and very helpful… and love volunteers!

I had the privilege of walking the chubbiest chihuahua I have ever seen. His name is D-Jay and he was just the sweetest. A little skittish, but so gentleĀ and he loved theĀ getting some fresh air on the puppy trail.

PAWS also has a house that is now the designated Cat Cottage. It’s air conditioned with tons of kitty trees and screened in window lounge areas.

Towards the end of our stint, we got to hang out with a few pups. A little fetch, a little running, and the highlight of all highlights… a sleepy old pug named Mr. Big.

It was such a great afternoon. Hot, sweaty, and a whole lot of fun.
