The "+" Stands for Extra Awesome!

It's a new year and maybe one of your resoultions is to give back to the community.  Well you're in luck, Animal Defense League has a thriving volunteer program and we're always looking for new recruits!  The biggest thing I heard in 2012 was how hard it is to find a place that allowed children.  Well guess what parents, the ADL loves its Junior Volunteers!  Kids ages 10-15 must be with a parent or guardian volunteer at all times and they not allowed to…

I know, I know ... it's December and it's still pretty hot outside!  San Antonio weather, what can you do!?!  Of course, we do havea cold spell (supposedly) coming up soon ... and just a few weeks ago it got pretty chilly out there.   That's where my story comes into play.  I was getting into my car one of those chilly nights a few weeks ago when I thought I saw something under neath it.  Now for those of you…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Categories: Pet Tips

Thanksgiving is upon us once again!  That time of year when we gather with family and friends, watch some football, eat lots of delicious things and wear stretchy pants that we call our "Thanksgiving pants" (just me???).  It's also that time of year when our furry friends like to sit by our feet at the dinner table and beg for some of those awesome table scraps.  We've all done it, snuck a few morsels of turkey or perhaps a dollop…

Dancing’s for the Dogs (and Cats)!!!!

Categories: Community Events

Boy oh boy am I excited about this one!  A local dance studio is hosting a donation drive for the Animal Defense League this Friday and it's going to be a blast!  I am by no means Ginger Rogers, but I LOVE to dance!!!  You know when Eliza Dolittle sings "I Could Have Dance All Night?"  That's me, without the cockney accent though.  Or how about when Gene Kelly yells "Gotta Dance!!!" in "Singing in the Rain?" Yeah, I've done…

An Adventure of the Bold & Bizarre

So I had the opportunity to participate in the Síclovía fun on Sunday and boy was it an eye-popping adventure!  The Animal Defense League provided the water for the dogs who came with their people that day.  I saw all kinds of dogs from Great Danes to teacup Yorkies keeping pace during the event.  The ADL even got quite a few shout-outs from people who support our mission!  I'm told there were 45,000 people and a decent chunk of them…

A New "Star" at the ADL

Have you ever had one of THOSE DAYS, when it just seems like a rain cloud is traveling over your head?  Well that happened to me quite literally last week.  Every time I had to go outside for work, I got rained on ... EVERY TIME!!!  I did a volunteer orientation at the ADL and yup, we got drenched during the tour!  Luckily everyone was excited about getting started and had a great attitude about it.  But no matter how miserable…
