We didn’t mean to be unrealistic

Every month we update the items on your Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s Wish List before sending out Fetch. As we’ve told you before, there are some things that will never change. We’ll always need towels, blankets, and cleaning supplies. That’s just the nature of an animal shelter.

Thinking we might be able to narrow it down a bit, we checked Webster’s Dictionary for a definition of “Wish List.”

It said a wish list is “a list of desired but often realistically unobtainable items.”

Whoa! Hold your horses!

We realize that some of the items are more easily obtainable. Who doesn’t have a used blanket or towel that they can donate to help the animals? We all have stuff in a closet or garage that we’re not using. That can be donated to the Thrift Shop, Community Pet Food Bank, or Adoptions program. Most people can afford the cost of a collar, food dish, or a bag of kitty litter.

At the same time, the Wish List includes medical equipment that can save lives. Yes. Some of it is expensive. But we believe that it’s not unrealistic. It just means we need to work a little harder. We need to organize.

We need to work together because, as you know, at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society “Together…we save lives.”
