Angell's Angels

Not to belabor a point here but those angels from Angell continue to amaze me. We’ve received a few dedications in the last several days and now there are only 23 peaks left open for dedication. And why do those angels from Angell continue to amaze me? One of the last few dedications came from yet another employee at MSPCA Angell. This winter several Angell employees (all women by the way) have made donations to our fundraising efforts.

I’ve said it a few times and I think it bears repeating. These fine ladies get paid to work at Angell and then turn around and donate some of their paycheck back to their employers. Simply amazing.

If these fine ladies believe in Angell Animal Medical Center this much, could there be a better endorsement of this wonderful place?

Many of these fine ladies continue to be impressed by Atticus but I keep telling Atticus he should be just as impressed by them.

There are several ways to donate and you can read about all of them here.
