OTAT in OK

Second Chance

This past weekend, from Thursday to Saturday, I traveled down to Moore, Oklahoma with several other volunteers from One Tail at a Time, the dog rescue group where I act as the Volunteer Coordinator and sit on their Board of Directors.

We traveled down with a van full of donations from our awesome volunteers and spent a day volunteering with the Animal Resource Center and Second Chance Animal Sanctuary. And the best part? We pulled six dogs (four from Second Chance and two from the Central Oklahoma Humane Society). All of the pups where already at the shelters prior to the tornado, which freed up space for the many displaced pups from the storm.

This was definitely the trip of a lifetime and I am so happy that I went and was able to be a part of it. The devastation in Moore was unreal and I can’t imagine what it was like to live through that. On Friday, when the second storm rolled in, we were able to take shelter with some of the kindest and most welcoming people I have ever met. The generosity shown to us is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.
