So here’s the plans

The volunteer critter webgeek will be leaving Lake Havasu City early Wednesday morning to visit our rescue center for a few days. We’d like to share our latest planning outlines with you and welcome any comments, suggestions, questions or wishes.

The plan is for the volunteer critter webgeek to visit quarterly. And like all plans, we’ve already had to adapt them slightly. The visit had to be moved up a week because Rexi Ruffian, the one of the webgeek’s seven Yorkshire Terriers, has been scheduled for a dental on November 12th for two really problem chompers.

Please feel free to review our ideas and to contact Martin (Martin@martintyner.com) or the webgeek (webgeek@gowildlife.org) if you’d like add your thoughts.
