My husband and I are new volunteers, recently retired. We wanted a small "no kill" dog/cat rescue, re-homing group to give time to and we found it with Contra Costa Humane Society. We work mostly in their facility called Kitty Corner, doing the morning cleaning chores once a week. We immediately met a shy, scared cat named Savannah who desparetely needed some quiet time to get over her fears, so offered to foster her to make her more adoptable. And, we became "failed foster parents"--Savannah is now in her new forever home with us, and ashe rules the whole house as all cats do! She is so special, she now has her own email address and will be blogging once a week for about 6-9 months to tell whoever reads her blog what is is like to saved from euthanasia. And that is what Contra Costa Humane Society, its staff and wonderfull volunteers did for Savannah.
