A Heart FULL of Gratitude!

It is with a heart full of gratitude that I write this “thank you” to everyone that joined us at the Hooves & Howls Fall Festival on Saturday.  The weather was beautiful and we all had a great time!

I took a moment at the end of the festival to stop and “soak it all in” and I realized how blessed we are at PurposeFull Paws and Horses with Hearts to have such wonderful volunteers!  People who are willing to take a beautiful Autumn day and give back to those who live life each day with a disability.

Volunteers gave during the preparation- planning & organizing, printing flyers and signs, making food, making crafts & gift baskets, organizing vendors,setting up a doggy photo booth and preparing the tractor and hay wagon for rides- including a ramp so that those with disabilities could also participate.

I saw those same volunteers working during the festival-  setting up, taking money and explaining our services, putting costumes on dogs, taking photos, helping those with disabilities onto the horses for rides, supplying a “goat petting zoo”, helping with games and a pumpkin patch, helping with raffles, driving the tractor while wearing a silly costume and helping with the hayrides!   At the end everyone pitched in to tear down and clean up- that is dedication!

I want to sincerely thank all of the PurposeFull Paws volunteers as well as Kay and her volunteers from Horses with Hearts- we could not have done this without you!

To everyone who came out to support both Horses with Hearts and PurposeFull Paws so that we can continue to provide our much needed services to those with disabilities- thank you for your time and donations!

heartsWe look forward to seeing all of you next year at Hooves & Howls!!

Sincerely- PurposeFull Paws Founder, Amy White
