The SPCA of Wake County is a No-Kill organization. Thanks to support from donations, the SPCA of Wake County was able to help over 16,200 animals in 2011. We’re saving more animals than ever before and providing an unprecedented amount of help to families struggling to keep their four-legged companions. Being No-Kill has allowed the SPCA to save more animal lives than ever before. This is why the SPCA needs our help more than ever before. Every single animal they save is because of people like us who care about homeless pets. We are proud to support this No-Kill work — team up with us to help!

Thank you for your support!

Find your “Stick” in life

Isn’t it funny how dogs are perfectly happy with a dirty old stick? I find it absolutely refreshing. Why can’t we be that satisfied with basically nothing? One of my goals for my life is to become content with a less. I don’t know about you, but my life has become increasingly more chaotic as the years have passed and I am only 25. I can not imagine raising actual human kids in this chaotic lifestyle we have surrounded ourselves with. Aside from being less complicated… we all need to find those simple things in life that make us run around the yard like a puppy with a stick.

If you could wipe away all of your responsibilities for a week, get rid of all worry over bills, not have any unexpected interruptions, and had no limit on what you could do… what would you do? Would you go sit and read on the beach? Would you take long walks with your family? Would you go fishing? Would you paint? Whatever it is… you should know what those things are in life that make you happiest. Sometimes the simple little things that enhance our lives get overlooked and downplayed. Without them, would you be the same?

I know I would not be the same without my love of art. When I am feeling overwhelmed and need to bring myself down to reality, I pick up a paint brush. It makes me so happy to be completely free… Sorta like Charlie and Mina when they find a new stick. It is the best thing in  the world to them!

When you’ve found that special thing in life… don’t let go!
