THIS is what I am giving myself for my birthday (by this I mean a nice donation). While COVID has me sidelined from my job at Austin Pets Alive, I’ve still been able to find extraordinary superheroes doing unstoppable work on behalf of our furry friends. Meet Laura Lee Franks, founder of The Unstoppables Project, here in Austin. While I’ve always imagined I’d adopt a disabled dog, I’ve yet to do it. For now, this is as close as I will get. This and volunteering for this wonderful, young organization. Austin is such an animal friendly town (human friendly too!). One of the many reasons I love it here so much.
