Friend Of The Week – Animal Shelter Volunteer Life

Animal Shelter Volunteer Life

How many of you are familiar with the following expression:

Make new friends but keep the old,
Some are silver, the others are gold!

That’s the thought that comes to mind as we shine the spotlight on some of our favorite blogging buddies of all time – our feline friends at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life!

Animal Shelter Buddies

Animal Shelter Volunteer Life features the cats at PAWS – the Pet Animal Welfare Society of Norwalk, Connecticut. The volunteers at this special shelter are dedicated to doing whatever they can, for however long it takes, to find suitable, loving homes for the cats (and dogs) in their care!


Each week at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life, you can learn about the precious cats at PAWS who are currently looking for a forever home with a family who will give them all of the love that they deserve. Kitties like beautiful Chandra (above) – and Figaro, Rudy, Mindy and Bunny, our bedtime buddies!

Thanks to the dedication of the humans behind the blog – Gracie, Zoe, Tracey and Kevin – Animal Shelter Volunteer Life has reached a milestone of over 800 posts!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten the volonteers’ and kitties’ days by dropping by this inspiring blog and congratulating then for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

  1. Yes, I have adopted three rescue Welsh Terriers, the last one passed away last year. I will certainly adopt from a shelter again, when I retire. Thanks for hosting the link-up. I added your button to my sidebar.

    • How wonderful that you have adopted three precious Welsh Terriers – I’m so sorry that one is no longer with you – but how exciting that somewhere, another precious doggie will find a home with you Carole!

  2. We have always adopted kitties and there have been 5 in the last 19 years. When my kid were little we had mama kitties that had babies and we would find home for them all the time. All those kitties are cute, but Magellan looks like he is enjoying himself in the Cat Ball.
    Have a great weekend!

    Thank you for featuring Animal Shelter Volunteer Life, one of my favorite blogs. All my 13 cats are adopted, 4 from shelters and the rest showed up at my door.

    • That’s so amazing, Ellen – it just goes to show what a generous heart you have!
      I feel in love with Animal Shelter Volunteer Life from the moment I first found them.
      I’m SO delighted to feature them this week! 🙂

    What an incredible honor to be featured on Friendship Friday! Thank you, Ramona, for your kindness, and for being our friend. We appreciate you so much, and always love the things we learn and the friends we meet through your beautiful blog. Thank you again. Big hugs and much love to you, Tsunami and Magellan!

    P.S. – Even though Gracie and Zoe *do* exhibit some very human behaviors, they are, in actuality, our beautiful adopted house panther kitties. 🙂

    • Thanks Kevin for your kind words and for the clarification about Gracie and Zoe (I know in our household, Tsunami and Magellan often adopt so many human mannerisms, it’s hard to keep them straight sometimes too!)

      Hope you have a wonderful week ahead and that lots of people are opening their homes up to those in need,
      even though it’s a busy time of year!

  5. Happy Weekend! Thanks for hosting 🙂

  6. Thanks for hosting! Have a great week-end!
