The Central Oklahoma Humane Society, which I volunteer for, in cooperation with OK Save a Dog, Red Dirt Boxer Rescue and Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division, have found homes for 388 animals, shattering the national record of 356 for adoptions done in a single weekend event at a PetSmart! Several E's were seen transporting new found friends to their new home. I wish I had had my camera.

Me too! I wish I could be put out of the rescue business and they all had loving homes.

Thanks _Jea_ - It doesn't seem like work as it is very rewarding at least compared to my day job. If I had it to do over I would work in a career associated with animals, they just want to be cared for and loved.

That's amazing! Thank you for your kindness. Hope the OK City flooding hasn't affected you.

It was quite a rainstorm, some places got 10" in 3 hours. Fortunately I live on high ground and no one I know directly was impacted.

As for the mega adoption event they are already planning another one in October. It has the making of being even bigger given the fact that the weather shouldn't be near as uncomfortably hot and more rescue groups may get invited.

I am there with you. I have worked for the Rescue Run event ( http://www.rescuerun.com/ ) in Columbus at the end of May. It was 12 hours of work with setting up everything (tents, tables, stage) and taking it off at the end. We did all by ourselves and I was really tired at the end. It was so rewarding and I would so much want to do it again ASAP (not only next year).

Good luck for the Event in October!!! :)
