I wanted to help Bobbi and the Strays because I LOVE animals. I felt so good when we donated all the food. It was a great experience! When people passed by I asked them ,”Would you like to help a kitten?”, Nobody could say no.
The best part about it was that I helped the animals..I loved it. It was the best day ever! I realized that
everyone who worked at Bobbi and The Strays were just volunteers! I wanted to pitch in too.

this animal shelter sounds really cool. i bet at night all the animals get together and play music (bobbi & the strays – gotta be a band name, right:?)
i’ve always been very interested in inter-species relationships, and how we can grow from them.

“Dogs, with their running legs, sharp noses and developed memory for sounds, are the natural frontier experts of these interstices….”
