This Animal Shelter Offers Pet Delivery To Offices To Reduce Stress And Help Animals Find Homes

1 Comment

The niece of a Boomer girlfriend has a pet-sitting/dog-walking business. Just had to share this from her blog.


The future is now. The Humane Society Of Broward County, an animal shelter in southeastern Florida, has launched a service called “Snuggle Delivery” that delivers shelter animals for hour-long visits to workplaces in sore need of cuteness, snuggles and friendship.

The visits (which require a minimum donation of $150) help both the animals and the people they visit – the animals get socialized and get to meet new potential owners, while the offices they visit become cuter, friendlier and more stress-free while the animals are there. The animals are all spayed and neutered already, and are delivered together with documents that would-be adopters can sign on the spot.

The service is currently only available in southeast Florida, but we hope that other shelters will soon follow their example!

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis
