Spotlight on Our Pet Programs:
Every month, Shelah Barr donates her time to Sunday Streets by organizing all of the pet programs that come out. Each month, she brings out all kinds of folks who dedicate their lives to helping out our furry friends. Here are some words from Shelah on the work she does, and how she gives back to the community:
"Happy Hounds Massage started as a desire to do for our pets what I was doing for humans – helping them achieve efficient and comfortable movement through bodywork and massage. I specialize in rehabilitative and therapeutic work, because that’s what my training is in (for humans, and it translates well into work with animals). The majority of pets I see through Happy Hounds Massage are seniors, injured, highly active and permanently disabled - not necessarily in that order. I work with all small animals but specialize in dogs because they’re like the rugby players of the domestic animal world. They throw themselves into whatever they’re doing with no sense of self-preservation, bang themselves up, then go back for more. A cat or a lizard for example won’t usually do that – they’ll pretty much just rest when they need to.
I try to support the animal community as much as possible. I’m expanding my social network through Facebook and Twitter as a way to share information about what’s happening in the pet world. I donate Happy Hounds Massage Gift Coupons whenever I can to help organizations raise money, and attend as many of the fundraising events as possible. I started organizing the Pet Program at Sunday Streets because I thought it would be a great way to introduce the local rescues and a public that might normally never meet. My idea was that it would give the rescues a bigger pool of potential adopters, fosters, volunteers and supporters, and the public would have new opportunities to get involved, be helpful, and learn about personal and social animal care."
Highlight on a Rescue
Copper’s Dream is new to the Sunday Streets Pet Program. It was founded by a local woman, Jennifer Wang, who like so many of us would like to see the end of pet overpopulation and euthanasia. Copper’s Dream rescues dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and sizes, and has North and South Bay chapters. They brought a good variety of dogs and had a pretty successful first day with us.
