They sent a letter. I kept the pictures of kittens and puppies in my craft box, I put the form letter on my bookshelf, and I resolved to give soon. I’d get another letter in the meantime, and then another. Finances opened up, finally, and I sent one of my favorites, the San Francisco SPCA, a donation as thanks for their hard work for the city’s animals.
I got this letter today and it made me so happy, perhaps unreasonably so. Maybe it was Sonia’s post about Wolfe, the kitten cashing in on his nine lives. Or, maybe it was the new, constant struggle at making my Boston terrier comfortable and happy. I didn’t care that the letter was a tax receipt, because:
Thank you for your gift of $25 to the San Francisco SPCA in honor of Gida.
That’s all I needed. Love your animals (and the organizations that love animals) extra much today.
