Kim Sallee sends farewell letter on last day at GRAS
By Kim Sallee
I just wanted to send a short letter to say thank you to Mr. Mike Stephens and Holly Grimsley for giving me the opportunity to run the shelter this past year. I appreciate their trust and confidence and for letting me run with my ideas.
I would love to be able to name off all the people that have helped us tremendously by donating items/time at the shelter, transporting or even giving encouraging words. I realize that would be impossible for me to do...so I will just give a big "thank you" to everyone that has ever helped us. I am glad I've had the opportunity to meet so many nice people.
It is going to break my heart to walk away from the animals, but I feel like it's time I move on. This has been one of the most heartbreaking, emotional draining jobs that I have ever had, but then again it had rewarding days also. I loved when someone would stop by and tell us how happy they were with their new dog or cat they adopted or better yet would bring their pet with them for us to visit...that always made my day.
I also want to say thank you to Kim Tucker, Jimmy Harmon (who was always there when I needed him) and all of the class D workers that have worked hard for me this past year. It was definitely a team effort and I could not have done it without them.
Last but certainly not least I want to thank you...Ed Waggener, for putting up with me, lol. I know sometimes pictures were not the best or ads were missing information but you always worked with me and posted so many animals for us.
Peg Schaeffer I don't know how you do it, but I admire you greatly!
Kim Sallee and Sarge
