Three Legs and One Big Heart – Mack is Ready for His Forever Home

BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL Society helps pair dogs that are about to be euthanized with foster parents that can care for them until they're adopted. Before Mack, a black lab mix with big floppy ears, found his way to Best Friends, he had sustained a major leg injury and his front right leg had to be amputated.

But Mack is a survivor, and eased right into life with three legs! He lives in a home with two other dogs where he's learned new skills. Besides enjoying lots of pets and cuddles, Mack loves to travel and rides calmly in a crate on road trips.

Mack has a sweet temperament and charms everyone he meets. Give him a happy home by adopting him through Best Friends today!

Kids’ Meals’ Beth Braniff Harp Leans into Bold Goals for 2022: ‘Imagine the Difference We Can Make’

Beth Braniff Harp, CEO, Kids’ Meals, Inc.

WHAT IS THE secret to running a successful business in times such as these? The secret is flexibility and a positive attitude, and as a leader modeling both of those attributes. A business has to accept the challenge at hand, and enlist the support and guidance of their leadership and staff, while creating a strategic plan to pivot to meet immediate needs. For Kids’ Meals, during the pandemic, the need for our services for food-secure children and their families tripled almost overnight. The challenge before us looked like climbing Mount Everest! We made a decision as an organization not to turn anyone away who applied for services. This meant adapting our model to be “Covid safe,” mobilizing more volunteers to assist when there was not enough staff, strengthening relationships with our social service partners, and literally changing all aspects of food delivery for food-insecure families.
