Well a lot of us have that special furry face in our lives and this is my guy.He is always there for me,offering nothing but love.Billy is an 8YO blue roan cocker who is my constant companion.I love my little guy so much, so wanted you to meet him.
My mum ,Clare Mills, helps run the (APS)Animal Protection Society in Southern River. WA.She is head dog carer,vice president and personnel manager and has dedicated the last 9 years to the cause.Both my parents volunteer so much of their time, but have made many changes to help this place run more smoothly.New kennels and catteries, improved living conditions for the animals,gained funding,increased members and awareness in our community.
The hours my mum spends there is tremendous.She asks nothing in return but instead gains much personal satisfaction in knowing she has saved a life (she scouts all the local pounds for those on death row)or finds a new home for the homeless.Ive heard it said that it would take 3 people to do her workload.To list all she does would be impossible.
She also works as assistant manager at my child's primary school canteen once a week.
She is my hero.I thank my lucky stars to have her in my life.
Please go have a look at the APS website,as any support would be fantastic.
