Changing at a moment's notice

At the EARS volunteer training workshop, one of the themes covered is how volunteers should be ready for anything: “Be ready for circumstances to change at a moment’s notice," “be flexible," “be prepared for anything.” Well, today was a perfect example of that concept in a real deployment.

We got to the shelter at 8 a.m. and began our usual morning duties. The dogs have quickly adjusted to their new schedule; everything was very Zen as we went about our day calmly and quietly.
