I'm a lot of times we get animal that really are not prepared for adoption and light underage kittens and perhaps no mom like Alex I ate a piece and then we can get a lot without their mother. How many people who depend on not either to feed them or do simple Carrick on the field Foster homes really critical to what we deal because actual Turkish.

When they realize that we don't have a whole building that they can he from the road and we have a small portions. So. There are times where we would have more animals and fostered in what at the shelter. Oh it's really critical trust to hope that many animal that we can't have people that will help from the right.

Among elected not to love Miranda Lambert she really quite a fact that her and really was determined to tell her about our shelter. And how their foundation just kind of computer crashed.

Micro chipping is really huge truck for the shelter. We have become pretty long now with our frequent that we do. I'm they've got a lot of people out. Even to our islands to block the beaten path. It is really critical because. Like you captain link the apple just because they're kind of high. I'm there are a lot of capped in the world. If you tell somebody my cap it cap either gonna fictional outlets right back when it comes onto that there are thousands of different happy. And half time. People say my calico and really cute picture that's a happy. And they really aren't defying. So much what I believe a dog car. Well I can say I have a French Bulldog somebody who say I ever did not actually are and how capped. For the really hard to. Differentiate between and they are the ultimate needle in haystack. So weak and more in the we're gonna have a binder of hundreds of caddie kept listening and it's almost impossible. To really make sure that we eat. Are matching up capped properly. I'm no matter how hard we try the colts were all shelters so how do you microchip and warm one whopper bar scanner and we have information to wolfpack have a long and we can expedite getting that cap back to the Cold War are getting it medical care actually it came in with the trauma and the center with a really critical and current and intent. And know just how to match simple thing which often can be free like with one of clinics and can say blanket your animal or shorten their stay at a shelter or are. Really take the children of the equation completely at a senate couldn't bring them to a back in the game and corporate and special or just to get scans. It's really one of the most effective things you think victory animal to the club to take off with a collar. Right because the microchip is embedded. Yes it's like between the shoulder blade that you really quick any peace I think there was straining Crocker that probably the thing that bothers the animal promote and people think it's a big meal but it's really not a bad.

I'm very generous bequest that allowed us to do a project like that that we had never done before. We are very emotional and we haven't meet and support what I'm but we don't have a crime of large donors something like that make you know it was really shocking than anything and really allowed us to. Do something different or are capped. At the time we get kind of implement commitments for Don that we had done very minimal cap because there are being. So when we got his caddy though it. Was one of the project. I had been wanting to do for many years. When it finally came to head it was to collect writing what we decided to do at the same time it cover our dog yard. I'm partial to that kind of shaped like you so in the center of the U outside it was just. Concrete where you would go mingle with the dog that you wanted to adopt possibly. But there was no cover so it was raining up or whether it was not an option and Mac which really hard for us with on adoption. I'm kind of cut them short and it lied about not being adopted so what we did was we covered that and in about a third of we put the cat healed completely secure and allowed our caps to go to either dog door. When the slider coastal waters like the fighters to open and it's huge it's a really big caddies go in and demand. Compared to bring your coffee in the morning compact cap the total impact. That's public but I love it because it says here that you're casket to roam freely. Yes so after a Catholic quarantined to make sure that they are could be scream and Holler acne.
