Yesterday afternoon we visited the local animal shelter. Although it used to be the city pound, it has recently became a no-kill shelter. Aidyn, his dad, and I walked along the corridors of kennels and greeted all the dogs, cats, and chickens. I believe these field trips build empathy and social awareness of the plight of homeless animals. Responsibility for these animals start at home with proper care of our own pets. I hope that Aidyn continues to keep a special place in his heart for animals.
