Our volunteers are the best!
I came to work this morning at 9am to see what kind of chaos was happening at the shelter. You see, today was the day that we were breaking down all the cat cages in preparation for our new cat habitats that arrive tomorrow. We first had to move all the cats to other locations, clean the cages, and break them down.
I expected total craziness when I arrived, but I was most pleasantly surprised when the bulk of the job was already done. Volunteers were cleaning cages, staff and volunteers were breaking down cages and moving them, other volunteers were hanging out with the felines who were, to say the least, confused.
It was amazing and I've never felt so unneeded in my whole life. It was a great feeling. Thanks to CM, FC. and JM for organizing everything. Special thanks to RE for coming in on his day off to get dirty. And the most thanks of all to Elaine, Shirley, Elliott, Jan, Dan, Jittaun, Leslie, Betty, Stephanie, Mary, Cheyanne and Colleen. Our volunteers are the best!
