TMA’ers headed out to the East Lake Pet Orphanage to care from some of our favorite animals this past weekend. The monthly visit got a bit of a twist from the norm. Usually, the group takes the dogs out for walks, out to play, and gives them a bath.
Jodee Bixler (above) was one of the group that helped give baths to 16 2-week old puppies that were covered in fleas that came into ELPO. It wasn't the highlight of the day to see the puppies come in like that, but by the end of the day, they were all snug in their pens after their baths.
“I love my time volunteering at ELPO because it's a win-win situation for all involved - the dogs get walks, playtime and lots of love - and we TMAers are contributing to the solution of finding abandoned and orphaned dogs (and cats) homes," Bixler said. "It’s also great getting to know colleagues that I don’t work with on a daily basis. And when puppies are part of the mix, it’s a triple win!”
