My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for HUMANE SOCIETY OF SHELBY COUNTY, Columbiana, AL, USA
I volunteer for Shelby Humane Society on a regular basis and I can’t begin to adequately describe the personal satisfaction that is has given me.
SHS is making a real difference in the quality of lives of pets and pet owners, from the simpler things like quick fix spay and neuter programs, low cost vaccinations and microchip clinics to the more complex programs like Shelter Partners where they transport dogs to New England. I do not know how they provide such quality services and programs with the resources available to them.
The staff at SHS is wonderful and they do a great job of recognizing the volunteers and people who adopt from the shelter. The volunteer appreciation dinner really makes the volunteers feel like we are making an impact and provides an opportunity for us to come together and get to know one another. SHS also encourages adoptive “parents” of shelter pets to give updates on their new family member through the Happy Tails forum.
SHS is doing so many good things that I could go on and on, but I will wrap it up by saying that I am proud to be associated with Shelby Humane Society and I look forward to volunteering with them for years to come.
