Puppy Fever

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Lately I’ve been really wanting dog snuggles. I don’t necessarily want a dog, I just want to hug play with one. A few of my friends have dogs, but what would I do if they weren’t around?

Animal Allies Internship

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

As I was searching for summer jobs, a Spring internship sort of fell into my lap. I just completed my third week as a Marketing and Special Events Intern at Animal Allies Humane Society. Right now I am working on creating and promoting material for the Walk for Animals 25th Anniversary. This fundraiser is a big part of keeping the pets at Animal Allies healthy and happy until they find their new forever homes. The projects I am working on are pivotal to the success of the event. For example, I advertise the event on different websites, social media, and to local organizations. With the guidance of my internship advisors, I created Fundraiser Kits for the participants and some fun email content to keep them motivated to meet their fundraising goals. I love the work I do and I love how many puppies and kitties are around! It’s hard not to take one home.

Wildlife of Duluth

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

Duluth is known for being an outdoor city. It boasts beautiful views of nature all throughout the area. Nature here, however, does not just include Lake Superior, waterfalls, birch and pine filled forests. It also includes the animals that call these areas home, including this black bear that ran across Howard Gnesen road as I was driving last night. I thought he was going to go up and ring the doorbell at this home.

Pet Therapy

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

One of the things I have enjoyed most about living off campus is the fact that my roommates can have pets in our home. I get to live with a pup named McKinley and a cat named Seamus. It has helped my stress and anxiety level tremendously. It is like therapy, getting to play with them or cuddle with them on the couch. Joyous, it is really, having such loving creatures around. The College of St. Scholastica does allow comfort pets into campus housing for those who have emotional needs for a pet, which is amazing, but I have never lived with anyone who has had a need for a comfort pet. I, myself, have never had a comfort pet either. For me, personally, spending time with animals soothes my soul, and I am very happy to share a space with these wonderful creatures.
