The Animal Shelter Foundation is an amazing organization. I have limited spare time on my hands, but the dedication of the other board members and volunteers has made me very enthusiastic about the cause. I started out as a volunteer helping to prepare their newsletter and based upon all the great work they were doing to help animals at our local shelter with medical treatment, training and other needs I was hooked. I became a donor and engaged participant in their fundraising events and other activities. I eventually became a member of the board and I can tell you from first hand experience the board members work hard and you can often find them volunteering to build beds, play with the cats or walk dogs at the local shelter. We try to bring creative events to our community that will improve the lives of animals including a recent humane education program for local school teachers. The Animal Shelter Foundation is a wonderful organization and when I travel for my "day' job I often talk about our efforts and people are so amazed and intrigued particularly those who are animal lovers that they ask me how we set up a foundation to support the animals at our local shelter. Our vision says it all- build a humane community where all animals are cared for in healthy homes and all citizens practice responsible pet ownership.
