Especially as the holidays and winter approach, we can always use more volunteers. Our shelter has only two full time employees and several part time staff. They do a lot with a little and appreciate all that the volunteers do to make those jobs easier. The Board appreciates it because it really helps keep the cost of running our facilities lower so we can devote resources to the medical care and comfort of the animals. We have five rooms of animals that are mostly considered by most people to be "unadoptable" because of their medical needs or age. We keep those animals as healthy and comfortable as we can for as long as we can. One volunteer has started a wonderful blog that shows those kitties. Her pictures are beautiful and show these senior or special needs animals as the exceptional creatures that they are. To see the blog, go to: http://lemonysqueezes.wordpress.com/ - thanks, MB
And if you would like to volunteer, we'd love to have your help. There are a variety of ways to help - just check out the Volunteer page for ideas.
