A Special Grant

GREAT news!!!!

My employer had a "Volunteer Week" back in April, where everyone in the company, who is an active volunteer, could write up a document to explain why they feel their organization would be eligible and worthy cause for a $500 grant.

So, since I feel that our Pet Save is a pretty darn awesome charity, I took some time and filled out the application and wrote up my document, and submitted it. I thought, heck, I may not get it, but why not try for it anyway.

Well! I bet you can guess what happened!

Yesterday I looked in my mailbox, and in there was a really nice letter from the company and a cheque drawn to Pet Save for $500!!!! Wooooooo!!!!! I was almost in tears jumping for joy! It made my day.

And! I got to tell Jill about it on the phone today. She was super happy too, of course :)

With that being said, I got more good news. I'm on my way to pick up the new crew right now. Should be home to make a post about it in a few hours or so (I'll probably just add on to this post). And Rosie is booked for her operation next Thursday ~ we'll be bringing her in Wednesday night!

Off I go. Back soon! :)


  1. Congratulations, that's wonderful news and the grant is well deserved! Would it be possible for you to publish the application letter you wrote here on your blog? I'd love to read it!

  2. Oh, and yay for the new crew and Rosie's surgery, of course!

  3. Concatulations on the grant! That's wonderful news!

  4. Woohoo!!! Lotsa great news! You go, girl!

  5. Congratulations! That's really nice of your company, and very nice of you to take the time to apply... I'm sure it'll be put to good use.

  6. WOO~HOO!!! A major CONCATULATIONS to you!!! So happy your boss realized your have the best charity!!! Not that the other's are not good, but glad you were picked! That is super!

  7. Wll, it goes to show, something that comes from the heart, can reach another heart. Well done and many congratulations. You must be thrilled. Welcome the new 'arrivals' with a snuggle from me.
