I need you to meet my new people!
Several weeks back I applied to become an application manager with Mutts of the Midway. I had met the founders about a year ago thru Rachel from Rescueber and instantly loved their no-nonsense (meaning drama-less) focus on saving dogs. Because to me, that's what it is all about. The dogs.
Since then, I’ve been trying to find ways to get involved or support them. When my husband and I decided to sell our skyline view for a yard they were the first foster application I filled out. While waiting to move into our yard I saw their post looking for volunteers interested in becoming Application Managers. Well, I applied, duh.
So anyway, Cliff's Notes: I'm on the team now and I love it more than I thought I would. I find quick phone calls with potential adopters take WAY longer than necessary because it's so much fun helping people find their dogs. We, of course, become instant best friends and I just explode with joy when there's a "love connection" and they decide to take love to the next level with an adoption.
So far in my short stint, I've helped adopt out 10 dogs!!
Listed are their Mutts names.
So obviously, I want you all to know them. You should come out next week and support them, too. National Dog Day is on Wed. August 26th and at Blue Agave Restaurants (both Kinzie and State Street locations) you can go from open to close. Dine in (with your dog on the patio) or take away (and stay quarantined), you MUST MENTION THIS EVENT so that 15% of your tab goes to Mutts of the Midway.
Best of all, all week - if you dine on their patio with your pup they get an a doggy ice cream!
Available for Adoption:
This won't be the last time you see rdmoc events supporting Mutts. Everyone on the team has been wonderful and kind and hilarious to work with, so join me in supporting them.
