75 Days of Fur Continues
Posted Oct 15, 2014
I cannot believe that this is my job! On Saturday morning, we walked into the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society with lots of anticipation and joy
for all the furry creatures that we were going to have the pleasure of meeting. Joining me was Emily, from our North Branch and Johnny V from mixed 104.7 to do radio remotes all day. Also taking place this Saturday was the annual bake sale so the traffic was terrific and everyone was happy with sweets in their bellies! We set up our banner, gifts and pictures and before we knew it people started coming over to sit alongside one of the many sweet animals available for adoption. If you are not familiar with our hashtag wall, Letsfindaway, here is some information: For every picture we take we are donating a dollar to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society and every time someone “Shares” a story through their social media, we will donate another dollar. As of right now we are just over 200 pictures, 47 shares and half a dozen stories. Thanks to the wonderful staff and volunteers we actually got pictures not just of dogs but also of kittens, bunnies, birds and ferrets! The hours went by fast and before we realized it we had taken over 50 pictures, 7 animals had been adopted and 2 bags of puppy chow were eaten (by me). To keep giving back to our furry friends, please feel free to tag yourself in the images and share your story on our website at www.voyagefcu.org/letsfindaway. If you happened to miss our visit to the Humane Society this past weekend, don’t fret as we will be back again on October 25th and November 8th! Feel free to stop out and help donate to this great cause and maybe you’ll find a furry friend to give a new “home” to!
Thank you to everyone that participated and assisted us in getting pictures. We are very excited to come out again in 2 weeks for more furry fun on October 25th from 11:30am-1:30pm!
Please note that no animals were harmed in the photos but treats may have been given!
