Shout Out of the Day: Ebony @ NY Ave Shelter (Washington DC)

Going to shelters is an unmitigated heartbreak, but there are a number of good people working at them. At the NY Ave shelter, which is DC's primary shelter for strays, I've encountered many helpful people who now recognize me when I arrive, or don't need me to say Sassafras' name when I call in. I start with "lost a beagle" and they say "Sassafras." Today's shout out goes to Ebony at the shelter, who answers my morning calls with assurances that she is keeping an eye out for Sass every day. I believe her and find comfort it knowing it.

(Side note: many of the area shelters put pictures of animals brought into the shelter online. This is immensely helpful. Unfortunately, Washington DC does not do this, even though they have the capability.... anyone want to take on the cause to change this?)
