Smile Hello again! New-ish?

I joined the forum a couple of years ago but wasn't a big poster.. I'm hoping to be more active this time around!

I'm 27, married for over 4 years, with three fur babies.. Alice, our 4 year old GWP, Willow, our 3 year old lab/something wiry mix, and Basil, our 10 and a half year old kitty!

I lived in the states for three years with my American hubby, but we now live back in Canada.. I work in an animal shelter and my hubs is an engineer!

Welcome! I used to have a GWP--can't wait to own or foster another!

There are a couple shelter workers and a lot of volunteers here. I'm one of the latters, but I've been tossing the idea of going into admin work at a shelter. Do you mind sharing what you do are your shelter?

They're the best aren't they! I'm the 4th home my GWP has had so she definitely has issues, but she's an amazing dog and I am so lucky to have her!

I am also a volunteer at the shelter I work at, hahaha. I feel like I live there! I work in Adoption, so my job is to screen and interview potential adopters and find the best possible match for all animals. I also do intakes, admitting in strays and owner surrenders.. data intake, helping out with fundraising events, etc etc

She is beautiful! Thanks for giving her a final "forever" home.

As far as living at the animal shelter goes... hey at least you're doing meaningful work! You sound very dedicated.
