February 17 – Phoenix, AZ
Lee and the team moved on to Phoenix after San Diego. He had a meet and greet at Uncle Bear’s Brewery from 1-3 p.m. Although there was a good turnout, there were no adoptions at this event. There were only three really young puppies at the event and the setup was not very convenient. Lee expressed remorse for not having everything they needed, but he is still ahead of his goal and looking forward to the next event on Wednesday, February 21 at Santa Fe Animal Shelter in Santa Fe, NM.
Girls night…(swipe🔙👀🐶) Thank you to everyone who showed up to the AZ event. Although it was a beautiful turnout I’m very sorry we didn’t get any adoptions this time. Only 3 very young adoptable pups were brought to the brewery and the setup there wasn’t very convenient for a MeetnGreet or especially an adoption event. This is 100% my fault for not making sure we’d have everything we needed like even a parking spot. I assumed things would be how we wanted and expected because of our last events and I shouldn’t have done that. We are still here and are still trying to find some pups forever homes. I’m truly grateful for the people that showed up but at the same time I feel like I let a lot of people down and especially the dogs. I expected to learn a lot on this mission and I certainly am, the trip and the learning has only just begun. Fortunately we are still ahead of our goal and even once we leave AZ I promise that the mission will not be complete until we get dogs in AZ adopted. Next event is Wednesday in Santa Fe New Mexico. ❤️
February 21 – Santa Fe, NM
Lee had a meet and greet at Santa Fe Animal Shelter where four dogs were adopted! Two dogs that he featured — Jackson and Zeke — were part of the group that got adopted. Jackson and Zeke had been at the shelter since September. Lee’s spirits have visibly improved as more awesome dogs in need have been adopted — just look at the beaming smile on his face!
