Paying it Forward

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

At Mountain Humane, one of our favorite things is how animals have a way of bringing us together and building connections that may have otherwise never happened. Meeting new friends while volunteering, bringing home a new family member who creates closer bonds and joyful memories, or kids creating new friendships over a shared experience with shelter animals – the ways that animals impact our lives is endless.

One of those connection stories involves Ethan, a young adopter who recently used his skateboard savings so he could bring a kitten home for the holidays. Ethan’s excitement to adopt a shelter pet created a ripple of kindness that will make you want to grab some tissues. Check out the video above to hear the whole story!

You can help make more connections happen this holiday season! Your gift will help support all of our programs and services that make this a better community for both people and pets!
