Dr. Backlund asked, “Who wants to help serve the homeless and near homeless and their pets in Omaha?”
“Well…I do,” I said.
So we did.
Today was my second day helping at the Omaha Street Dog Coalition, a branch of the national Street Dog Coalition at Sienna Francis House in downtown Omaha.
I showed up fifteen minutes early as I always (mean to) do. I was surrounded by about fifty men milling about, many of whom helped bring in supplies and asked how they could help me set up and get started. I asked a guy passing by how he was, and he said, “wonderful! I am so blessed!” Maybe Dr. Taplett is right. Maybe life does begin outside your comfort zone. Sometimes.
I saw a few dogs the first time and ten dogs today (including four puppies!) Dr. Dobson saved my life by seeing the one cat who came in with his person today.
It was so much fun. I can’t wait until the next time.
