As most of our clients know we are animal loving Celebrants and we get so excited when our couples bring their beloved pet along to the ceremony, usually as the ring bearer. After such an amazing year the Brisbane City Celebrants duo decided that this Christmas more than anything we really wanted to ‘give back’.
We contacted our local RSPCA in Wacol who provided us with their Christmas ‘Wish List’ which included a variety of household goods, cleaning products and of course pet toys, harnesses and treats!
We spent the weeks leading up to Christmas working though our wish list checking off items until we had an abundance of pet goodies! Plus some tasty sweet treats for the hard working caring RSPCA volunteers who give so much time, love and companionship for the animals in their care.
On Christmas Eve we arrived at the RSPCA with our hamper of goodies where we were excited to be greeted by our names etched in the entry pavers in recognition of our previous support to RSPCA QLD.
We were welcomed by some very thankful volunteers and after handing over our hamper they invited us to have a wonder around the facility which we eagerly accepted.
With an ‘only child’ type cat who is a former RSPCA resident, and two rescue dogs we already have a full house so unfortunately we aren’t in the market for adopting any more fur babies, however that didn’t stop us falling for many of the puppy dog eyes that stared back at us.
Jamie had a big soft spot for a ginger adult cat who greeted him with a ‘Meow’ and continued to appear to converse with him, responding to his chatter at regular intervals with several more ‘Meows’.
I was particularly taken by the highly entertaining kittens, especially the playful little fella that climbed right to the top of the netting, enticing his buddies to follow suite.
If you are thinking of getting a pet, we highly recommend getting a rescue animal. The love they have to show you for giving them a better life is truly infinite!
