Donating to Tri-County Humane Society

In 2010 at the International Animal Care Expo, I sat at a lunch table with strangers. By the time we finished lunch, we had made friends with everyone at the table, and one woman bought 10 of the paw pins I was selling at the time. She took them and gave to all the staff at Tri-County Humane Society. I mailed a donation to them thanking them for purchasing the pins and for the work they do to help animals.
 
Little did I know that 2 years later our paths would cross again when I got the opportunity to visit St. Cloud, MN, where Tri-County Humane is located!

Here with Marit Ortega and volunteer Rachel at the 2010 at the International Animal Care Expo sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States!


It was a beautiful shelter with super cute puppies, precious kittens, and even a huge rabbit! The shelter is strictly no-kill, meaning they do not euthanize when there is not enough space to hold animals. They simply give them to a foster parent to wait!


At the end of the tour I presented them with a donation, my second one to them! It warms my heart to be able to reach out to these animals in Minnesota.
