Soon after losing my last cat (had several of them for 20 years), I went in to see the Nevada Humane Society and its new building. It was a positive, cheerful facility that didn't smell bad, thanks to all the volunteers and staff who keep it so clean. After an orientation, I went "to work" there. The Volunteer Coordinator and I put together a mentoring program, not required, for those who want to know, in depth, about how we do things there, where supplies are located, etc. Now I schedule the cat mentoring and also mentor, a very rewarding job in that volunteers are happy to have gone through this process, so vital to knowing safety guidelines for the public, our volunteers, and the staff. There is a very good feeling when working there - we volunteers are greatly appreciated and know it. Aslo we are all proud of the high adoption rate the NHS has. Anne Simone
