Slow Here - Busy Elsewhere

We have been very busy with updating and adding info to websites and Facebook pages. Also, trying to spread the word about the upcoming Awareness Level Emergency Animal Sheltering Course on the 28th at the Ag. Center, advocating for Assistance Dogs (and fundraising) along with working on a proposal for a new state law, and of course the normal business items. And I thought the busy time would slow after the new year.
