Hours were spent at AAAR, listening to guest speakers discuss the business of running your own rescue operation, and how to deal with the general public and city officials. I learned a lot, and enjoyed mingling with other folks who want to help cats (and dogs) as much as possible. I volunteered to hand out flyers, and maybe knock on some doors too. I do not aspire to having my own rescue operation, yet the knowledge of how to work the system is invaluable. Why reinvent the wheel?
Check out the AAAR website at http://www.allaboutanimalsrescue.org/ and maybe sign up for an upcoming event, like the silent auction on 11/3 at The Whitney in Detroit. I'm donating a few of my cat pins...LOL!...for the event. As if I can possible wear all of the ones I have, but don't worry; I've saved the really good ones for myself. How else can I show the world that I'm a crazy lady with cats?! Well, other than the cat hair all over my clothes.
