Letter: Ahrens, annual pet food drive

Letter of Thanks

On behalf of Grand County Pet Pals, the Grand County Animal Shelter and Max’s Full Belly Deli (Grand County’s only food bank for pets), I would like to give a very heartfelt thank you to City Market and Safeway for allowing us to hold our annual Pet Food Drive and Animal Shelter’s toys,treats and litter Drive on Dec. 13, 2015. A special thanks goes to the employees of City Market and Safeway for helping make this combined event run so smoothly. It never would have been the success that it was, without our volunteers. So a huge thanks goes to Irene Coleman, Jeff Coucke, Mitch Taussig, Lisa Reed, Malinda Varney and Brenda Kraft for stepping up to the plate, or should I say, to the food bowl and giving up their time to help to make it all happen. I am always humbled by the generosity of locals and visitors who at the busiest time of the season still give however they can.

The words thank you, consist of only eight letters. However, behind those eight letters is a huge amount of gratitude for putting into motion the potential for great things to happen. Perhaps a family will get to keep their pet because they will be able to get food for it. Maybe a shelter animal experiences the joy of having a toy for the first time. Or maybe, a dog getting treats after doing great on a walk with a shelter volunteer realizes the connection of the walk and the treat, and becomes more adoptable. What ever the scenario, a difference has been made. How great is that?
