Kiva Lending Team: MoreWaggyTails,Less Barks&Growls
We loan because...
We wish humans would be more like our pet dogs. Warm, giving, loving unconditionally. And able to be independent and self-sufficient like our cats!
We want to show wags and encouragement more than growls. Want homes to be an oasis for returning workers. We want to lend instead of spending money on another chew toy or treat. Good workers deserve helping hands and good paws(pause). Dog owners, kitty companions, animal lovers, and pet friends are welcome! [Send the names of your pets - not just dogs - to post here:]
