I am worried that my community will not support my food drive, with the economy as bad as it is now, it is hard for people to help those in need, when so many are there themselves. My biggest fear, is not having a good turn out that will support so many of our stray animals, they are in need more than the human race. I have always had a love and passion for animals, and it breaks my heart to visit the animals in the shelters, so if I feel this way, I am also hoping that others will as well and come out to the Genesee County Humane Society and support my food drive on December 5th 2009 from 12p.m. to 4p.m. I hope to see all my classmates donate a can of dog food or two. Thank-You

My original plan was to open a doggy daycare facility that would allow pet owner's to bring their pets while on vacation, at work or any unexpected emergencies. But with all the research and "reality checks", I will not be able to do this at this time. I recently received a certificate for completing an Entrepreneur class through Kettering University. My plan now is still to be around animals. Something Furry is a Pet Sitting Service that will allow me to visit the pet's home to take them on a walk and playtime one on one. Being convenient to both the owner and the pets; so they are comfortable in their own environment and by February 1st 2010, I hope to start my business.

Our group works very well together, everyone gets a small part in the project and researches the topic, reveals information,and research, developing a strong paper. Luckily, everyone in my group is a woman, and has somewhat of an idea what it is like to have a baby naturally. with everyone's experience and knowledge, each of us has our own story to tell, and that is what makes our group unique.
Working on this project has shown me that there are still people out there that care, and willing to help by volunteering at Genesee County Humane Society, cleaning cages, cleaning messes, walking the dogs. I have a deep passion and love for animals, so selecting this organization for me was simple. Many pets that are brought to the GCHS are strays and with a $5.00 donation it would help 3 dogs or cats get the proper vaccinations. At the time of this writing,(July, 2009) the population number of the country was 306,861,871, just think if every person donated their time or money, how well off these animals would be.

I chose the Genesee County Humane Society (GCHS), it is a non-profit organization that specializes in taking stray and/or abandoned animals, giving them a safe, warm place to stay until a family or individual can adopt them. They have been around for 20+ years, and strive off donations from the public. In short, their mission is to provide shelter and adoption of companion animals, reduce overpopulation, extend humane education, prevent cruelty, and provide those services that promote its goals and policies. Although, the GCHS recieves plenty of donations which includes hard dry food, blankets, toys etc. The real need for the animals at GCHS are cans of wet food for dogs and cats, hard rubber toys that keep the bigger dogs busy while waiting for adoption. My proposal is to have a food drive, printing up flyers and handing them out to the public so they can bring their donations to the GCHS where I will have a table and donate my time to raise the needs for these animals.
