Over the weekend, my girls and I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful event... Dogfest. This local Michigan event has gained exposure over the last few years as it was started as a grand opening for the Community Dog Park. We loved this event for many reasons, but anytime I can share my love of animals with my daughters, it is amazing. I love to watch their faces when we meet new dogs. It also shows and teaches them compassion. My oldest daughter now understands that my job is helping animals... in her words. This event helped raise money and food for local animals and their families that are facing financial hard times right now. "Can you imagine having to give up the dog that you love because you can't afford to feed him/her?" I can't and don't want anyone else to have to make that decision. Donations from this event went to Gleaners Pet Pantry. Cruelty Free Consumer.com looks forward to working with them to help raise money and awareness.
