The HOWS Project

Holy Moly! Team HOWS 11/21/2020 may have consisted of just 4 HOWS gals, but dang did we do an amazing amount of good! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

We first visited Champ, Cash, Gunner, Hunter, Skyler, Nature, and Peppermint. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• We had brought HOWS houses for them a week and a half ago, right before the heavy rains of those unusual mid week HOWS deliveries.๏ฟผ We followed up yesterday to bring additional supplies and get a chance to spend some better quality time with these dogs and their people. We will be coordinating a vet visit for Champ (a super sweet and gentle boy), who likely has intestinal worms. All but one of their doggies are spayed/neutered. And the three little ones spend much of their time indoors. ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ we are happy to welcome this family into our HOWS family. ๐Ÿ’œ

Our second stop brought us to Duke and King, two very mellow yellow๏ฟผ๏ฟผ twin hounds. ๐Ÿถ๐ŸถThey were sharing an igloo๏ฟผ-top screwed to a particle board bottom, raised off the ground with cut wood. ๏ฟผWe brought them two large HOWS houses, along with collars, no-tip water buckets, flea/tick preventative๏ฟผ๏ฟผ, and straw bedding. Both Duke and King will be neutered through HOWS in early December.๏ฟผ Their person hates tethering them, and lets them roam a bit when heโ€™s home. We have added them to our 2021 fence list. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

We visited Kali and Buddy, also new to our HOWS family, and brought *three* houses plus supplies for them...๐Ÿค” three because Gunner from our first stop spends equal time at this location; we wanted to ensure he had shelter regardless of which residence he was visiting! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ  These pups have acres and acres on which to roam; and they go inside at night. But they needed a safe place to curl up into during the day when not off exploring. ๐Ÿพ

We thought our fourth stop would be to check in on and bring a few winter supplies to Smitty, who received a HOWS fence last year and has been in our family for a while prior to that. Instead, ๏ฟผhis people told us they were moving next week and needed to rehome Smitty ASAP! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Fortunately, Mary Birkholz at Caring for Creatures had a vacancy and was generous to offer said space to Smitty!!!! ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ™Œ What a wonderful opportunity for this handsome sweet boy! Thank you so much CFC! โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Our last stop was to bring a few needed supplies to Cooper, Jax, Squirt, and a handful of kitkats, as well as receive Sophie ๐Ÿ’œ - a lil long haired black cat whose people could no longer tend to her sinus issues. ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ
We learned that Jax is having some medical issues and we will coordinate a vet visit for him soon. ๐Ÿฉบ We also rekindled the conversation of getting the cats there spayed/neutered; HOWS has already s/n all the dogs there. โœ‚๏ธโœ‚๏ธโœ‚๏ธ
Through discussion, we learned of ๏ฟผa new puppy, Bear, who was recently saved from a horrible situation by this client. She had him now for the last month, adding weight to him as well as improving his confidence and helping him learn to trust. ๏ฟผThank goodness she intervened when she did to likely save his life.๏ฟผ She had taken him in to her home despite knowing he was going to become an awfully big boy, difficult for her to physically and financially care for. Yesterday she made a very emotionally difficult decision to surrender him to us, knowing that was what would be best for Bear. She was his guardian Angel that day a month ago in the park, saving him from the hands of his abusers. Thanks to her he will live a good life. Thank you for saving him!!!! ๐Ÿ’™ He and Sophie are now in the care of Sam and her fosters. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ
It takes a village sometimes to ensure the safety and well-being of these animals. We are blessed to have our volunteers, clients, and rescues working together ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿพ

Special thanks to Karen Moore Grubbs, Darlene Hinton, Gabriele Ford, and Stacey Norris for making HOWS day 11/21/2020 a great day! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

The HOWS Project

This past weekend we had the Third Annual Community Yard Sale & Holiday Market and had the best time and turnout....even during a pandemic! Wow!!

The weather Gods threatened us with rain ๐Ÿ’ฆ all week but then they decided to be nice and grace us with sunshine โ˜€๏ธ. The sun shined down on 2๏ธโƒฃ6๏ธโƒฃ holiday vendors on the green and a full street of HOWS tables...and all socially distanced of course!

We have so many SHOUT OUTS to give:

The Shops at Stonefield
Along with donating the green to us, last week they surprised us with shutting the street down and giving us even more space to sell our items and social distance! They also let us store all our donations in an empty store so we can easily sort, price and receive donations this year. This was a huge help this year as normally all our donations are stored in our Promotional Coordinators home!
Thank you Shops at Stonefield! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’š

Milo the Mover
Since we had a space at the Shops at Stonefield we decided not to rent a truck this year. Instead we asked Milo the Mover if he was willing to donate his time and help us. Milo and Jeff were awesome - they made it so easy! They showed up at closing time and helped load the truck and then helped us unload the truck at Goodwill. This was the easiest and fastest end of the Yard Sale and we owe that all to them! If you need a mover go check them out!
Thank you Milo the Mover! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™

We always try and call around to local charities and/or stores to see if they will take our left over donations. Goodwill is always willing to take EVERYTHING...and I mean eveything! We always call and warn them of the amount of items we have but itโ€™s always so fun to watch their faces ๐Ÿ™€ as we pull up with a huge truck ๐Ÿšš! As always, they went above and beyond this year.
Thank you Goodwill! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿงก

Our Vendors
Thank you to all the vendors who attended this year! We know itโ€™s been hard during this pandemic for local businesses and we are incredibly grateful you decided to attend our event - masks and all! ๐Ÿ˜ท
Thank you all! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’œ

And lastly our volunteers
All of this wouldnโ€™t have been possible without all the hard work our volunteers put in; sorting, pricing, picking up tables, picking up donations, selling items online, marketing on social media and soooooo much more! Andrea Denton, Debra Rice, Mary Barrick and Janine Kaestner literally put their blood, sweat and tears into this years sale! Thank you sooo much ladies! You went above and beyond! โค๏ธ
But we canโ€™t leave out all the volunteers who helped the day of sale and worked so hard - Stacey Vaughn Norris, Jaleen Tocco, Theresa Tocco, Darlene Hinton, Rob Loughridge, David Denton, Madeline Bruggeman, Hounds O'HappyHollow, Barry and Kathy Krevansky, Patti Binard, Kate Joshua, Andrea Denton, Debra Rice, Mary Barrick. And Janine Kaestner!! You all are rock stars!! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿพ

Oh and one more special volunteer....our Yard Sale mascot, Stanley ๐Ÿถ ! He stole the show along with Bo! Check out Boโ€™s awesome HOWS shirt he modeled for us. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

Thank you to all who donated and who attended! We wouldnโ€™t be able to do this without you all!

Til next year! ๐Ÿ›’๐Ÿ›
