Shultz's Guest House

by Anabel

There are so many people out in the world who wish they could do a good deed to help someone -or something, but think they don't have the ability to do so. Well, Shultz's Guest House did help something. Shultz's was a farm based dog shelter, full of hardworking volunteers who were willing to save strays or buy dogs from other shelters because the dogs may not have been able to live any longer. The shelter was a very safe place, the workers tried hard to give the dogs affordable homes, and there was great service.

Shultz's topped other shelters because the dogs were protected, exercised well, and fed good food. Besides keeping the dogs healthy, the dogs weren't put down if they hadn't been adopted. Most importantly, the animals were given special love and time to play with the workers.

Do you know how hard it is to get yourself out in the world? Despite the exertion, the shelter posted pictures and videos on Facebook, had their own website, and did their best suggesting cute, little pups or big, cuddly dogs to people.

If you had to come to the shelter looking for a pet, it was important to the workers for you to find the perfect canine companion. The shelter would let you keep the dog for a 'trial week'. When that was over, you would have met with a few workers to talk about the dog. There were so many to choose from and they weren't over the top expensive, that the chances were, just like my family, you would have ended up taking one (or in our case, two) home.

Shultz's Guest House was truly an amazing organization. They've closed down now, but I'll always remember how they helped hundreds of dogs each year. They've also encouraged me to think of ways I can help save animals.
