Why You Should Get Involved With Your Community

I think that there are certain times in your life when it is easier to get involved in your community than others; when you are a student, there are countless student groups offering you free food and goodies to join, and when you are a parent, by the nature of most activities you have a quasi-group of parents who have to attend and volunteer at the same things that you do. However, many of us don’t fall into either of those groups, and I think that that is the best time to get involved and make a difference! And yes, it benefits your community, but it also benefits you…

Paws in Motion 2016!

Huskitude was back at it again- we reformed for Paws in Motion 2016! Paws in Motion 2015 was so much fun that we had to come back again.

This walk, however, gives us all a chance to bring the dogs out and get in a good walk. Continue reading

A Little Animal Love

For my newer readers that don’t know, I wholeheartedly love all animals! My brother’s husky Loki, my boyfriend’s Westie Daisy, and the rabbits I volunteer with at the Humane Society every week go a long way in keeping me happy and grounded. Continue reading

There is more than one way to give back

Alpha Gamma Delta has been fantastic to me in more than one way, but I think that the most important way is showing me that philanthropy can take many different forms. In 2015, we are fairly fortunate and I think that we can all give back, in one way or the other!Β  Continue reading

What am I, you ask? A rabbit wrangler, in fact.

I am incredibly excited and proud to say that I am now officially a rabbit wrangler with the humane society here! Alpha Gam really encouraged my love of philanthropic work, and I love animals, so the humane society is a pretty perfect for me. I’m hoping to eventually volunteer with dogs, but those positions are impossible to get, and I do love the rabbits, too πŸ™‚ I find none of the shifts are terribly long, and there are always adorable rabbits traipsing around.Β  Continue reading
