Alana Now Works at….Tree House!

You guys!

It has been a busy few months, but I wanted to let everyone know that, as of January, I am the Manager of Marketing and Community Outreach at Tree House Humane Society in Chicago. The job has definitely kept me busy, but I feel content knowing that my writing and other skills are directly being put to use to help kitties.

So far, it’s been a wonderful experience. I’ve met lots of great people, learned more about Tree House than I had known in my 15+ years of working with them as a volunteer in various capacities, and the new facility on Western Avenue makes coming to work comfortable and happy. And you know who else is comfortable and happy? The cats. They have outdoor screened porches for the warm months (Warmth: Coming soon to a Chicago near you), sunlight and big windows, and beautiful, spacious colonies to snuggle into as they wait for their forever homes.

I’m hoping to find some time to blog more – I’m migrating my blog to a new server this week, so you may need to re-sign up if you want to continue getting my posts – but if you want to follow what I’m doing in the meantime, please follow us on Instagram at @treehousehumanesociety.  You can also follow me @alanagrelyak. It’s mostly pictures of Pinkle these days.

I also blog regularly here. Stop by and say hi!

A usual day at work
