I have to hand it to my wife and daughter because they definitely put action behind their principles.
And for that, it makes it easier to not kick back in the air conditioning when I come home from work and instead give them a hand.
These two women are almost single handedly making a huge difference in the stray dog and cat situation in our community. It all started when my wife started bringing home a few animals that she found roaming around without tags or anything. She relocated some with owners who’d lost them and found new homes for the others. She became so well known for this in our community that folks just started bringing us all the wayward animals they found. And that ended up being a houseful of cats and dogs. This got to be more than our house and the HVAC equipment could handle. There was just so much fur, hair and dander that we had to do something. I was changing the air filter like every 10 days just to keep the HVAC unit from being choked out with all the dog hair. Finally, with help from the community and the local HVAC company, we were able to put on an addition just for the animals. Our local HVAC company even donated a ductless heat pump for heating and cooling in the new addition. Now the animals have their own space and our HVAC equipment for the rest of the house doesn’t have to deal with all the fur. And I can occasionally kick back in the HVAC after work again.
