Welcome to the Community Section!
I was tasked with comming up with a good idea for ferral shelters and would like to share the construction of one with you.
Henrico Humane Society
The folks at Henrico Humane work tirelessly to save and provide for animals in need. Here are a few that have crossed my path!
River Trail Cleanup
It is a shame what I see jogging or walking through these trails and common areas. I stop and pick up trash in my own neighborhood and whenever I can, wherever I am. Well, for the river trail cleanup, I actually made a workout of it. I take a well balanced, easy to maneuver wheelborrow and jog the area picking up rubbish and recycling. When done, simply put it all in the proper recepticles that are already there. If you see me out there, join in, especially if you are not allergic to poison ivy! You can grab the junk out of there :).
This has certainly been a place of peace for me over the years. You can sit in the quiet and be moved in deep, spiritually rewarding ways. The people are wonderful and Father Bob is certainly an amazing person to be around! Every Tuesday lunch is served to the needy. When I am not working my regular job, you can find me there. Come out and give a hand!
Feral TNR (Trap, Nueter, Release)
I am currently working in the Fulton area. Got 6 so far! TNR is very important. Not only is population reduced, but the little guys have a better chance of survival. The SPCA will spay/nueter ferals for free and getting them distemper, rabies and antibiotics is quite inexpensive.
