Sara and I began our morning in beautiful Vail, Colorado. If one is ever in Colorado this town is a must see. It is like a small Swiss village, full of little shops and amazing restaurants. Fortunately we had time to take a short tour of the area and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery.
Our next stop was to meet with Darlene of Pikes Peak Pet Pantry in Colorado Springs. She is doing a great job running this pantry, mostly on her own. She helps 350 people every month keep their pets at home and out of shelters. If you want to keep up to date on the needs of people and pets effected by the fire, visit the Peak Pet Pantry FB page.
We were very glad to able to donate a number of samples to help out the displaced pets in the Colorado Springs area. Hours after we left Colorado Springs the street we had been on was evacuated. Our heart goes out to all those impacted by the many fires spreading across the western United States.
The rest of the BOGO Bowl drive went smoothly as we continued east, stopping overnight in Hays, Kansas. Tomorrow we visit our last two shelters doing good works in Kansas and Missouri!
