I always look forward to seeing local organizations coming together to make a difference. If there has been anything that the past couple of years have taught us, is that we aren't alone. Communities have come together to assist each other time and time again.

A local car dealership will host a pet adoption event. Barking Back Rescue located in Montgomery, New York is working with them. They help with bringing dogs from shelters that are at max capacity or homeless dogs. These fur babies then stay with a foster until they are find their fur-ever home.

Barking Back Rescue takes pride in their mission to provide all animals with safety, health, finding them to perfect family and more.

Johnstons Subaru in Middletown, New  York will be hosting this event as a collaboration with Barking Back Rescue. This event will take place on Saturday, October 23rd, 2021 at 12 pm at Johnstons Subaru located at 3480 Route 6, Middletown, New York.

It's exciting that adoptions are available on site.  However, if you could make a donation, they ask for the following items, leashes, collars, dog food and dog bowls. Other donations that are needed include, cleaning supplies, paper towels and towels.

Cute and Cuddly Day With Baby Animals at Indian Ladder Farms

We had a cute and cuddly day at Indian Ladder Farms for their Baby Animal Days. My 10-year-old son, Ryan really enjoyed interacting with all of the baby animals and I have to admit, so did I. We were able to hold the fuzzy ducklings, a baby goat, feed the chickens, hold a sleepy hen, see a spotted calf, and even pet a donkey. I recommend going even if you don't have kids. Indian Ladder Baby Animal Days runs through May 9th.
