CRITTER HOLLER ANIMAL RESCUE
July 25, 2010
Since moving to Arkansas back in May of 2010 due to my husband retiring from the Coast Guard. I found that we had plenty of spare time. I have always had the love of animals so I did my research online to find a group to volunteer for. I came across a website that was very interesting to me and that was "NACSPCA" I loved their total outlook on the on their programs. It did not only include the animals, but also included the human side.
I was very impressed about the service dog training program as they take shelter dogs and retrain them to be service dogs for mental and physical disabilities. And I know one day that I might need help myself.
The other programs they have to offer (ex. the step up program, the internship program) I have never seen anywhere else in my travels across the states.
So one day I decided to take my husband out there to see if we could do some volunteering. And we where welcome with open arms.
The program founder is amazing in answering questions that we had asked about the programs.
After talking with them we decided to become volunteers. So, far I have recruited my husband which is a veteran training a service dog to become a service dog/companionship for a vet.
My 17 year old son now takes care of the cattery which he loves to do. And faithfully does 4 times a week or more depending on when we go over there to do our volunteering. He has also put up a webpage on Facebook and Twitter.
So if you get a chance in life and have time to volunteer please check out your local animal shelter and see what they have to offer.

My family has personally experienced their programs as we have a service puppy in training at this time.
Also, we have a couple of cats from there.

The animals,the STAFF!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
