ShareYourself Community Q & A
On December 11th 2021 ShareYourself hosted our first Facebook live event. During this event many questions were asked by ShareYourself community members. We feel that others who were unable to attend the event would benefit from seeing the questions and answers here in the form of a blog! At the end of this blog we will be linking the invitation for our next live stream event in January. We hope to see you there.

ShareYourself project highlight: Senior Tails
Melinda Glavin spent a large portion of her time as veterinarian euthanizing animals that were either too old or had behavioral problems. For many of these euthanizations Glavin would provide them as an in-home service, a very expensive service that makes the animals feel more comfortable in their final moments. Seeing the discrepancy between dogs that are euthanized alone in shelters versus dogs that are euthanized at their home, this inspired Glavin to create a non profit called Senior Tails, a project dedicated to giving dogs a happy home in their final moments of life.
