Recently, while Shelley was out of the country, her doggo Baci, got loose while staying at the sitters. It took a couple of days, but Baci was successfully found, thanks to the outpouring of support from the community.
It's scary to love your pet companion — and even more so when you are helpless to do anything about it! To show her support for everyone who helped while she couldn't, Shelley threw a Neighborhood Gratitude Party. As she is active in the animal rescue community, Shelley also put together an auction with goodies to benefit Friends of SFACC (San Francisco Animal Care & Control). All the funds raised will help maintain the great programs that the organization offers the pets (and pets-to-be) of our city.
As our city continues to develop, it's heartening to see neighbors still looking for one another!
