#ygkChallenge: Adopt a Friend

Kingston Humane SocietyWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Make a trip to the Kingston Humane Society.  Having a pet can add so much to your life, not to mention what it can do for theirs.  If you’ve ever considered bringing a furry friend into your home, why not pick one up at the Humane Society where animals in need of a forever home are anxiously awaiting your arrival?  Or perhaps bringing a pet home doesn’t work for your lifestyle, you can also do a lot of good by visiting the Humane Society to pet and talk to the animals or do some volunteering there.  It will make them feel great and will do your soul some good too.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.
