YAHOO! It's a brand new day, alright!

Time to put our differences aside, our shoulders to the grindstone and help this wonderful group make THS into a world-class shelter.

For the animals.

The animals can relax now. And I can quit worrying .Thanks for the update, Fred.

It's a good start, butonly a start. It's reassuring that the membership made a clear choice to put the animals first. But there is still a lot of work to do to get from the commitment to change to fulfillment of change.

Now is the time for those who care about animals to ask themselves what (more) they can contribute to getting the THS where it should be. Maybe it is an increase of $10 in the annual donation, or an extra hour of dog walking or cage cleaning, or volunteering or donating for the first time.

It's not over yet, but at least it has begun.

Excellent news. I understand the board's work starts tomorrow, although outreach to exemplary shelters has already begun.

Of course it isn't over, but for YEARS it hadn't even *started*. In fact, there were huge obstacles to change starting at all.

So this is really just n indication that the obstacles to starting reform are gone. But that is a HUGE deal. I'm so relieved!

And it is a brand new day. Now, the easiest part done, we can all work towards helping the animals they way they deserve it.

Congratulations, Faces Of CHANGE.
