You may have heard the breaking mews of our partnership with Catty Corner Cafe opening in Leesburg. To make sure we have an array of amazing adoptables, our cups will soon runneth over with fantastic furry friends.

Before this becomes a cat-astrophe, we are going to need some short-term foster guardians to host our mew friends when they arrive from our partner shelters. The foster families are asked to open their homes for approximately two weeks while we make sure the cats are up-to-date on their vaccinations and tested for FIV and FeLV. It's an amazing op-purr-tunity to tip-toe into the wonderful world of fostering!

Vet costs are covered by HSLC. For more information, please visit our website here: https://humaneloudoun.org/programs/foster/fosters-needed/ or email our Foster Coordinator at [email protected].

I will be Pet Sitting in style!

Thankful to the lovely lady named Betty of FB Market place for selling me an almost brand new Panama Jack Huffy cruiser bike for almost nothing!!!

She's so pretty!! Hot pink frame with neno lime green wheels. Wood grain cork handles for comfortable grip. Wicker basket on the front for my dog walking necessities, and a super cool bottle opener for those cold drinks on a hot summer day.

I am so very grateful for how this has worked out for me, my clients and Betty who got compensated more than she asked for.

I AM IN BIKE HEAVEN!! ❀ 🚲

The war on Ukraine has gas prices so high that it has forced me to think creatively outside the box, or outside the car if you will.

I raised my service rates in 2021 and do not want to do the same to my loyal clients again this year.

So, today I am purchasing A BIKE!!!

To any clients who live with in the town limits of Lovettsville, and who live on roads I can traverse without too much difficulty, you will NOT feel the hit of gas inflation on your invoices... at least not yet. πŸ™„

I am doing everything in my power to keep my prices at the same, or lower than most sitters but, inflation hits everyone and it trickles down hill, especially to small businesses, especially when your office is your car.

Please bare with me as we continue to find ways to save YOU and ME a little money while doing what I love, and caring for your animal companions.

I will hold off on price increases across the board for as long as I reasonably can.

Thank you all for your support and loyalty. I will continue to do the same for you. ❀

Love,
K-

Update on Yesterday!

We started around 5 am managed to get to Marina and resupply here with much needed supplies for her 200 dogs who have no food. We also took 30 of her dogs who have homes waiting for them to unite them. From there we collected Elena and her 7 dogs who was scared to travel to the border from Kyiv alone to we could help them get to safety.

We then travelled to the border and met with Cosmin from L.A.C International Pet Transport who resupplied us with food and supplies that we are delivering today to other shelters in need. He then took the animals across the border to safety and to unite them with their owners.

By the time we was finished it was 3am, we was up at 6am and back at it.

We are working tirelessly to getting the supplies to those who desperately need them and help them. We are also working on establishing a system abs network that ensures we can continuously abs effectively get supplies where they are neeefed and animals to safety for Aslong as this continues.

We are working with SO many organisations and I want to thank them abs you all for your support abd assistance, when I get chance to I will put up a post thanking each abs everyone of them so you know who they are. We sleep little, we eat on on the move and are trying our best.

Stay safe everyone and thank you all so much!

Sometimes in life you meet people and they become your friends, then over time become your extended family.
In this case, she was a small business owner, who became a client, who became a friend...and now she's an inspiration to me!

Bekah Ontiveros you set the small business bar high and make me want to achieve more, do more with the power I have, and create good in the world. Locally and globally!

So today, I have decided to up my game and donate %100 of the profits that Animal Duties brings in today to a Ukrainian animal shelter Shelter Friend - Ukraine.
They have struggled and stayed behind to help those animals left behind or forgotten by war.

I will NOT be taking any monetary donations from anyone, if you want to donate please do so to any charity you see fit or click on the tag above.

We may not be able to save the world, but we may be able to save one or two animals along the way.
