It’s 418 and I can’t sleep.
It’s 419 and I need comfort.
It’s 419 and I’m trying to remember happiness.
It’s 419 and I’m trying to feel like enough.
It’s 419 and I could be so much more.
You are not a burden.
You are not a bother.
You enhance the lives of others.

The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.
Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.
Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.
The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.
So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.
