Hi guys, it’s Olivia! I’ve been here volunteering with HelpAWS for just over 3 weeks now and in that time, I’ve learned a lot, but today was a day where I saw what all the hard work really means. The day I arrived in Saint Lucia we picked up the three poodles (Henry, Broadway, and Lincoln) and today, the NYC litter along with, sweet, funny little Zara, and our tiny kitten Cleo all went to their forever homes. All the hours of care, emotional highs and lows, and weeks of being with these sweet animals ended in happiness. I was able to be a part of the whole process - from rescue to vetting, socialization, feeding and growing, playing and kissing, cooking and cleaning, bathing and brushing - the nitty gritty and very real experience from start to finish and I have to say, HelpAWS is much more than just an animal rescue - they are educating a society and helping to fix a problem. I am so fortunate to see it first hand and be a small piece in the big, complicated, and beautiful puzzle. Sending so much love to our babies who found their families today, we can’t wait to see how you grow!
