Saying our goodbyes…

Submitted by EARS Regional Director Karla Schulte

Well I'm back in Cedar Rapids. I intended to update the blog sooner, but things have been very busy here. Why would I expect any different? It is 6 a.m. on Saturday. Today is our last day. At least I think it is Saturday ... it's funny how you lose track of all sense of time when you are deployed.

On Wednesday, the animals who were remaining at the temporary shelter in Cedar Rapids were made available for adoption. We did a brisk business all day!

Here are some photos and their descriptions, from top to bottom:

It takes a city

The people in Cedar Rapids are amazing. I find it interesting how I am such great friends with people whose names I don’t know. I am thankful for the droves of community members who come in every day to help care for the pets. Some come in because they are lucky and want to do something to help. Some come in because they lost something and are thankful for the shelter. All come in because they care about the animals.

Cover your EARS

What's louder? Fourth of July fireworks or a shelter full of 300+ dogs? It's a question only the EARS volunteers in Cedar Rapids can answer!

Meet our fearless leader!

All of our work for the animals and pet owners in Cedar Rapids would not be possible without the leadership of EARS Regional Director Diann Wellman. Check out the great article about Diann published in her local paper, the Marion, Indiana, Chronicle-Tribune!
