Bird's Eye View of MY childhood home

Templeton inspired me to look at my childhood home via Bing's Bird's Eye View program. My parents moved from this house like 7 or so years ago, so it's been awhile.  3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath.
Here is Morristown, NJ:

Community Service

This summer vacation, one of my goals was to find a community service project that I could dedicate my time to. I tried a soup kitchen, and researched many opportunities, but nothing seemed to fit either my likes or time availability. Sal passed away and at the time, Temp and I saw nothing positive to come from it. Not to be negative, but he wasn't suffering, he was young, we just felt like we were punished with his life taken away from us.

We always knew that our next pets would be from a shelter (Norfolk Animal Care Center), and then we got Crawford and Jasper. The women that helped us thru the adoption mentioned a need for volunteers and that seemed like the perfect project. The cool thing was that Templeton was interested too! We went thru orientation and some animal handling training, and now we are volunteer staff.

Temp and I take pictures and video for the website (we firmly believe in that form of marketing because that's how we found our little guys!!) We also will hang out with the animals, play with them, clean their respective cages out, try to make them feel as comfortable as well. We look forward to special events too. So I believe at the very least, we are helping more animals find homes, and wouldn't be doing this if Sal hadn't passed, so there was something positive that came from it. Here are some of the pictures I have taken so far, hoping they will find a home soon!

Kittens make new friends!

Crawford really liked Joe!
The kitties met Sophie the dog as well, they were freaked out at first!
Jasper wanted no part
Crawford was hesitant, but started letting his guard down
Crawford felt safe near Emily
