There is no denying that in order to be healthy, you need to eat well and exercise. However, healthy living goes beyond that. It means taking care of yourself, resting, and enjoying things – whether it’s as simple as hanging out in comfortable clothes on the couch or heading out for a drink, dinner, or some new adventure.
For us, helping animals in need is something that we love to spend our time on, as much as we can. We always want to do more, but we try to get creative and reach out in ways that we know we can right now. So if you happened to notice the yoga events that we have been doing lately, that has been our way to help raise extra money for animals in need.
Most recently, we partnered with the MSPCA at Nevins Farm to host a Poses for Pit Bulls class at On Target Fitness. Poses for Pits helped to raise money and awareness for the Pit Pals program, which is a low cost spay/neuter program. You can read more about it here.
The best part? Mila, a senior Pit Bull came to the class to cheer everyone on! Mila is such an amazing dog, and has an even more amazing story! She is somewhere between the age of 8-10, and survived both Hurricane Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico, all while living on the streets with her two puppies. She was quite skinny, but her puppies were very healthy, and have already been adopted! Mila has also been gaining some healthy weight too, but she still needs to find her forever home. We understand how scary it can be to adopt not only an animal, but a senior animal at that. However, although Mila may not have many years left, she really just wants to play and give kisses. You can read more about her, and inquire about meeting her HERE.
Back to Poses for Pits…
To date, we have raised $700! Some attendees donations are being matched by their respective companies, so the total will be rising!
We just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU once again to everyone who came, helped out, and donated to the event. You have no idea how much it means to us to be able to help animals, so we thank you so much for giving your time and donating to help animals in need.
And once again, thank you to the MSPCA for letting us do this event, On Target for letting us use your space, and Ioanna Raptis of Seacoast Online for photographing the event!
