Volunteers are needed in support of animals displaced with their owners. Volunteers are required for the Reception Center at Kelly and at the shelter at Stinson. Twenty four hour shifts are being scheduled in increments of 4 hours, from 8 to 12 a.m., 12 to 4 p.m., etc. Animals are being processed at the Reception area and volunteers are required to assist evacuees with their paperwork and assisting in animals being moved to the Animal Care trucks. Shelter assistance is needed in cleaning, feeding and walking animals. Please spread the word to friends and associates. If the volunteers are associated with a shelter of rescue please contact Cathy McCoy 373-7321. If they are not associated with a group, please ask them to go to the Coliseum and go to the animal table at the VOAD section. These volunteers will be processed through VOAD and then sent to required locations. Please stress to your contacts that no one should show up at any location without being scheduled. This will only leave to confusion. Of course, many groups have responded such as Humane Society, ADL, ACS, etc. but please pass the word to those not associated with the large groups, who may not know of the need. Thanks Kathie
