Time is flying!! Spring semester has been so busy for all us, school-wise and with C.A.R.E.!! This semester we have done a lot of smaller fundraisers that have brought lots more publicity and money in for C.A.R.E. February we made bracelets, which brought in almost $100! March we made dog treats that we gave straight to C.A.R.E. instead of selling, but they were still a great hit. This month we made goodie bags, which we made more than $50 from! We even had Traci from C.A.R.E. bring one of the dogs to campus. Her name was Penny and she was so loveable. People came by multiple times just for some animal therapy. Unfortuantely this was our last event for our project. We do plan to advertise for one of C.A.R.E.'s biggest events, Hogs for Dogs, sponsored by Harley Davidson.This event will be on July 10th and, although we personally may not be working the event, we hope that anyone who is still in Springfield will go out and support C.A.R.E.!
Personally, I feel our greatest accomplishment this month was actually getting one of the dogs to campus. I feel that it really brought to life for the community what we are trying to do for these animals.
Our greatest challenge this semester has been actually getting into the shelter to volunteer. We made up for this in other ways, but it's nice to be there every couple weeks to see who has been adopted, who's still there, and it just makes me feel more in touch with our organization.
