To express the gratitude we feel for our supporters every day, we want to share these words from an AHS employee who finds endless joy in opening Animal Humane Society’s mail during the holiday season:
For the last two years I’ve had the honor of working at AHS, where I am fortunate to spend my days sharing my love of our organization with new and long-standing AHS supporters. Every day I get to hear stories of the impact animals have on people and how they can’t imagine their lives without their furry friend from AHS.
During the holiday season, I’m the first one to jump at opening the mail. You might think it’s because I love seeing all the donations that arrive to help the animals in our shelters. But what really excites me is discovering who each supporter is, what inspired them to give, and seeing how many people have opened their hearts and homes to animals. Along with seeing the donations, I get to read personal notes that are included, or marvel at artwork provided by a child. So many families are completed by adopting a new family pet, and that joy is shared with AHS in each envelope we open. Who knew opening mail could be so fulfilling!
From all of us at Animal Humane Society, thank you.
