On Saturday it was 60 degrees out, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get to know some of the friendly faces I have been writing about. I headed over to Natalie’s Second Chance in Lafayette with some of my friends to volunteer for the day. We spent the day walking the dogs and getting to know a little bit more about them.
Natalie’s Second Chance is a no kill shelter that saves homeless dogs and dogs from kill shelters in Indianapolis and the surrounding area and brings them to Lafayette for a better chance of getting adopted by a good family. They vaccinate, spay and neuter and microchip the dogs before they are able to be adopted. Natalie’s Second Chance loves donations. If at any time you would like to bring in a bag of treats or a dog bed, they won’t turn you down. They also encourage volunteers to help out at the shelter. When I was there, there were so many other people helping to walk dogs too. There were also families cleaning out stalls and giving the dogs baths. It was great to see how so many people from the community spent their day helping little animals have a chance at a better home and life.
Just telling you about my time at the shelter doesn’t do it justice. Here is a basic rundown (of photos) of what happened when I fell in love with all the puppers at Natalie’s Second Chance:
