That means its time for Paws on Parade!!!!
One of the things I love best about our community at Kindred Spirits is that it is like family. Whether or not your coworkers understand how much you love your animals, or your parents, or your kids….you can meet other people who feel the same way here.
One of the presences we have in the community is to support the Bangor Humane Society. We are the ones that try to help animals once they find a home, and they are the ones that have the animals that need a home. Every day they get animals surrendered because their owners cannot take care of them, or had a barnful of kittens, or they were found as a stray. No matter where they come from, pets in our area most commonly are brought to the Bangor Humane Society.
Now, because this is our yearly event, we invite our clients to be part of our team. We have the best clients in the area, and more of you show up to walk with us than any other group in this area. Well, that is until two years ago when the Blackstream Cycle Misfits came to town.
Led by a guy named Russ Maynard, they have kicked our collective butts for two years in a row now. When I say kicked out butts, I mean raised more money for the animals than Kindred Spirits. When I say more money, I mean A LOT more money.
For their 24th year, the Bangor Humane Society is sponsoring Paws on Parade on September 30th. We will meet at the Bangor Waterfront.
Now, I reached out in the spring to our clients that owned businesses to sponsor our team, and I got support from 8 local businesses. They each gave $500 and so we started out with $4000. I had Cutler’s make up 150 sweatshirts for us to wear, so I am hoping 150 of you sign up in exactly the right sizes of hoodies that I ordered.
Scroll down to see this years Kindred Spirits’ hoodies. These are not just the regular T-shirts that you get an event…they are special Kindred Spirits magical hoodies.
If you sign up, we will save one for you and you can wear it on September 30th.

For those of you who cannot attend or support us, I want to tell you a story.
Once upon a time there was a little kitty. A little kitty with very big blue eyes, and teeny tiny whiskers around her mouth and above her eyes. That little kitty was named Petunia, and she had a tiger stripe down her back and little boots on her feet.
But those feet were getting cold.
Very very cold because she could feel the winter coming.
And there was no where to go.
So she tied a little sheet with all her possessions onto a stick and headed down to Mt Hope Avenue. There she found some warm (lactose free)milk and loving arms to keep her warm.
And she was happy.
Special thanks to our corporate Sponsors!
