My husband and I adopted our kitty from WCHS and later, I became a volunteer there. I'm so proud to be associated with this loving, committed group of people. Everyone at WCHS seems to be working toward the same goal: to provide a safe, warm, healthy, nurturing environment for each animal - for however long it takes to find its forever home. And sometimes, it takes a long time. Our kitty had been at the shelter for eight months when we met and adopted her in 2007.Thankfully, the WCHS welcome mat has no time limit. Today, as a volunteer, I see many of the same animals at WCHS week after week, month after month. Outsiders may have a tendency to feel sorry for these long-time shelter residents (I did, at first!), but the fact is, these animals are well cared for and get a lot of attention during their time at WCHS. I have to believe that in many cases, an animal's life at WCHS is the best life they've known.

So if you're looking for a pet, searching for a volunteer opportunity or considering making a charitable contribution, choose WCHS. You will not be disappointed.

I support the DRIF because it is singularly focused. Its goal is to provide funding to cure diabetes now. Not tomorrow. Not ten years from now. Today. And when you talk to researchers at the DRI, each one of them seems to genuinely share that same sense of urgency. The scientists I've been fortunate enough to meet there are an inspried, dedicated group of professionals committed to finding a biological cure.

The Great!
