500 Posts on Thankful Thursday


Wow … 500 blog posts.  It always sort of surprises us whenever we reach a “milestone number” blog post. That’s because when Tracey first started Animal Shelter Volunteer Life, we never dared to imagine that our little blog would ever have such staying power or any kind of influence. Nor could we know that we would make so many amazing, animal-loving friends from around the globe.

Thank you, everyone. We wouldn’t have made it to 500 without you. Your love, support and encouragement are incredible sources of strength and joy, and we are so blessed to have you sharing in our journey, and in the stories about the amazing cats who pass through the doors of PAWS. And in the adventures of some “graduates” of the shelter - including our very own Moosey, Gracie and Zoe, and Angel Sammy (who made his trip to the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year).

We're also abundantly grateful for animal advocates everywhere, and compassionate and caring places like PAWS, where animals can wait until they find their very own forever homes.

With love and thanks, and headbonks for all,

Kevin (meowmeowmans) and Tracey, Moosey, Gracie and Zoe, and all the PAWS cats

  18. Congratulations on 500 posts! That's a huge accomplishment!! We never imagined the amazing friends we'd make when we started blogging, either, but we are so grateful to have you as our friend!

    We love shelters like PAWS. The mom says PAWS reminds her of our local Cat Care, and we are so very thankful that shelters like this exist. You are all wonderful for what you do for the babies at PAWS <3

  20. Great job! Keep up the awesome work. It takes a lot to write a post and that's a big milestone. And probably a lot of hours of cats sitting in your lap patiently while it happened. Happy 500!! - Alana & Crepes.
