The Humane Society of McCormick County
September 30, 2013

I love being a part of this all volunteer organization. The HS of McCormick County has made amazing progress in this small, rural community toward educating residents about the importance of spay and neuter. I help out at the pens and as a foster home for dogs and I have had overwhelmingly good experiences. Other volunteers are just a phone call away, and always quick to help solve any problems. The recently opened cat barn is a new part of my childrens' and my week- what a great experience for them to be able to volunteer and take responsibility for creatures in need. I am proud to have this organization as part of my community!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a protocol for dogs that have been at the pens beyond a certain amount of time- there are adoptable stray dogs being turned away because of lack of space at the shelter, but there are dogs that have been at the shelter up to and over a year. I appreciate that we don't give up on these dogs, but I wonder if there is a way to help them get greater exposure, or a group out there with more resources that could help out in these situations?
