Animal Control

Volunteer Spotlight                     

Our volunteers are an important part of our daily operations.  They are appreciated when they are here, at our Petsmart off-site adoption locations, and/or assisting with special events.  There are also volunteers "at large" doing good for us from home.  We notice quickly when volunteers cannot make it on an assigned day and  miss their presence and assistance tremendously.  We harbor enormous gratitude for all of their time, effort, energy, love, devotion, and dedication that they each give to the shelter, its animals, and staff.  It is truly appreciated by all of us (both human and animal)!  No matter what they are doing for the shelter, or how much time they are able to  give, it is huge!

The Volunteer Spotlight page used to focus on one volunteer at a time.  It is so hard to choose who to feature that we are presenting all of those active volunteers that wish to have "face time" on this page.  They are not listed in any particular order.  They are all equally important and special in what they do. It is not an all inclusive list, as some volunteers are a bit shy, but check the page regularly as we add new pictures of our volunteer staff.

Volunteerism is a state of mind which urges us to move beyond the routine of our everyday lives to perceive a need and give of ourselves to accomplish a worthwhile task." - - Emerson.
