Today, the Lajes Field Girl Scouts hosted the Mutt Strut fundraiser.  This was a delightful event to gain funds for our Girl Scouts, but also–they were helping raise money for Recomeco, a local organization that helps abandoned and stray animals on the island of Terceria.  These people work tirelessly, and I am amazed by their motivation and enduring love and patience in the face of the daunting challenge of the huge stray population.  The fact that these two amazing organizations teamed up–building American/local national relations with the positive message of treating animals with love and respect–helping creatures who aren’t able to help themselves.
