Here is a poem my husband wrote about our shelter:

"M.E.O.W. Shelter"

We've closed the shelter
Can't take any more
Put out the word
Sign on the door

Someone is knocking
Basket in tow
I know just what's coming
Gotta say no

Oh, two healthy babies
Sweet as can be
They know in a moment
Salvation is me

They grab my heart with
eyes pretty blue
My soul hears a feeble
"Please take me, please do"

My resolve is slowing
Still judgement says nope
Grim fate is unspoken
If I'm not their hope

They're cute and so helpless
But my work load would soar
Raise babies by myself
Two months or more?

Then show for adoption
They'll like what they see
But prob'ly by then
They'll be family

"OK then I'll take 'em
can you give me a little?"
"Sorry", she said
"It's tight as a fiddle"

You see there's no end
to this desperate need
Please spay and neuter
and help us succeed
