Today as I prepare for our Founders Day event at Indianapolis Animal Care & Control I can't help but reflect back on the achievements of our kennel enrichment program. Cecilia was the first dog that I 'fell in love with' at the shelter. Through our enrichment program I was able to work with her every week for three months until she was adopted. That really made Cecilia my dog, because I spent more one-on-one time with her than anyone else for three months.
I found a young, scared stray alone in the investigation kennels and this picture of her is after her first bath. I named her Cecilia because it just broke my heart that we couldn't pull her from the shelter. That was three years ago and even though I wonder where she is now and hope she's being taken care of, I know she wouldn't be where she is today without me. A little bit of compassion goes a long way. Please consider opening your home up to a foster animal.
