Daisy and Zorro – Two Adorable Reasons for Working on a Saturday

I will admit, my ideal Saturday morning is catching up on my favorite TV shows in my PJs, while overdosing on pumpkin pancakes and drinking them down with a cappuccino in a cereal bowl (like the French).

But for 2013, I have decided to dedicate my Saturday mornings to joining others to make a difference for a cause I truly care about – helping animals who suffered abuse find loving homes.

Now, I volunteer for the Lucky Dog Rescue, a non-profit based in the Bay Area that rescues dogs from high kill shelters, and fosters them while looking for permanent stable homes.

This past Saturday, at the adoption event, I was assigned to a really special young lady named Daisy, a Chihuahua with so much energy and spunk (below).

Unfortunately Daisy did not find a new family that day, but she did make a new friend named Zorro.

Zorro was brought to a shelter with a broken leg, but that didn’t stop him from showcasing his jumping skills to every passerby.

Moral of the story? Don’t waste away your Saturday mornings; get out there and support a cause you truly care for. Besides, there is always Sunday for pumpkin pancakes.
