It has been a busy year at the shelter. Our current Pres. is a hands on get it done kind of guy. With his persistence we were able to begin construction on our cat and dog shelters. In March, 2013 we opened our doors to a newly built cat shelter. We have a wonderful, bright facility with lots of light, cat scratching posts, wooden boxes with ladders for them to cozy up in. The volunteers also love the happy atmosphere. We also just broke ground at the same location to erect our dog shelter. It will have dog runs where they can play which is not possible at our current outdoor kennel situation. We are actively holding fundraisers to obtain the funds needed to complete the building. It is a very exciting time for our small, volunteer run, with private funding only. I have been working for ten years and I hope I can double the volunteer hours.

I have been working hands on with the animals for nine years. We are an aging group, and always looking for new, younger people to commit to caring for our homeless animals. It is my passion to help God's animals be well fed, rehabilitated, find homes and live happy lives. Fostering is a fun way to help the dogs and cats be ready for their forever home. I work with the volunteers in many capacities, bake sales, fundraising by selling chicken dinners, to lavish parties. We help those animals that are discarded, although they are all precious in our eyes. The Humane Society of McCormick County, Inc. is solely supported by private funds. We get no assistance from the County or City. It makes for a huge challenge, but we are working through it with very dedicated people.

The Great!

the fact that I am aware of dogs finding permanent homes after working with them.

Try to bring in new volunteers. We have many aging helpers. It is very hard to draw new people from our community.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Get our shelter built rather than staying in our temporary kennels.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Volunteering is the best way to meet people, and it is truly provides a very worthy way to spend your retirement hours.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

There is nothing like having a dog lick your face, or watch a dog gain needed pounds after good receiving nutrition.
