Kody and I spoke at Kaplan University in Omaha last Thursday evening. When I finished talking about him and his book, he received a round of applause from the audience. After plowing my way through a dozen tales and trying to gauge the audience’s reaction, the applause was a nice touch.
Afterwards, my friend, Professor Nicole Barret, invited us out to meet with her friend, Loren, who is in charge of a dog rescue shelter in Council Bluffs. This guy was cool! He spoke directly to Kody about costs involved in starting a shelter, and ended his fine speech with some good advice.
Loren said rather than start up a rescue shelter first, we should build our reputation. The best way to do that he told us was to find homes for 4-5 dogs and therefore show folks we are serious about helping dogs.
As it so happens, my friend has 5-6 Pitbull puppies who need homes really soon, so on the way home we talked about finding homes for them. I have placed a plea for this cause on Facebook, and anyone who is interested in helping, please contact me either there or through my email.
As I said on Facebook, we are going to be picky about who intends to adopt these pups, as we don’t ever want any of our dogs going to a bad situation, namely the fighting ring.
