First of all I urge everyone to follow PACC Pets on Facebook. You will have a much better understanding for how hard these folks work including the dedicated volunteers in finding homes for dogs and cats.
The young woman who came up with the 48 dogs in 48 hours campaign is only 17 years old.
My hat goes off to Michelle Lindorff who had a bright idea and put it into motion. On top of that she organized a dog wash encouraging volunteers to come to PACC and wash dogs so all the dogs would be clean for their new homes.
Here’s what PACC had to say:
“A BIG applause for Michelle Lindorff, who took her spur of the moment idea, and made it happen! It was a huge success! There are some happy dogs out there tonight and some that just have no idea they will walk out those doors in a day! It goes to show anything can be done if you set your mind to it! Some of you may not know but Michelle is only 17 years old, she did this event with no money, lots of talent, her huge heart and compassion for animals. That’s all it took and look at the results! Thanks Michelle! You are amazing!!!
A BIG thank you as well to all of the PACC PETS friends who have supported, shared and networked! Thanks to all the rescues and fosters!! A huge thank you to all the PACC employees and volunteers who take care of the pets! A special thanks to Cindy, Norma and Ginny who without their pictures and lists this page would not be possible! We have a amazing team!”
That almost brings a tear to my eye.
According to what I read on Facebook — a record 86 cats & dogs — left PACC this weekend. Not all the 48 dogs left but many of them did (more than half) including Linda who was there since January. And because many long timers left, there’s room for more.
I’m thrilled this campaign was such a success.
