But the cats' needs just go on and on...and are always a pleasure to fill.
It certainly has been a wonderful year, tho it whizzed by of course. Lots of fantastic adopters and supporters...!!! Deeper relationships with the cats here. As always, medical mysteries unveiled, and more information accrued.
AND!!! Best of all, our Contra Costa County Animal Services has a fine new director!! Beth Ward, who knows and loves (and respects) cats and other animals. Who will bring the shelter from being a gulag to being a genuine shelter! I will be able to advise folks to take a lost animal there rather than having to say that the animal would be safer on the streets. She actually invited the rescue community to meet with her, and to let her know of its concerns! to prioritize them, and be available for further dialogue. A door has opened. Many, many lives will be saved through her loving guidance. Bless you Beth Ward!!!
