Cache Humane Society

Hi friends! Sorry it's been so long since I've updated! This semester has been epically busy.

I've recently stumbled upon a really wonderful new activity--volunteering at the Cache Humane Society! I found out about it through a friend. They hold volunteer orientation every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 4PM. It's a really awesome opportunity to serve the community and get some "pet therapy."

My friend and Vicki and I go in at 8AM on Saturday mornings and spend a few hours cleaning out cat kennels (they clean them everyday!) and playing with the cats. The whole place runs like a well-oiled machine. It's very well-maintained and it's funded purely by donations from the public!

Here are pictures of two of my favorite cats, Saffron and Jimbo:



Saffron is a sweet, cuddly little girl who just loves attention. If you sit on the ground in the communal (a large enclosed area for the socialized cats), she'll immediately crawl onto your lap. I haven't hung out with Jimbo much, but I'm a sucker for his sad-looking eyes that just scream "take me home!"

If you love animals and you want to contribute to the Cache Valley community, definitely check it out when you come up here!

Peace out,
Shayla M.
