Humane Society of Greater Kansas City
May 10, 2011

The Humane Society of Greater KC has proven to me that volunteers CAN change animals’ lives. Hundreds of pets were saved through the Ray of Hope program last year at adoption satellites where I volunteer. ROH is a partnership between HSGKC, KCK animal control and rescue groups in KC. When I first started volunteering in 2009, 70% of the animals were euthanized at KCK Animal Control. This year, it is less than 1%. Dozens of animals who would not have a chance at many shelters with broken legs, heartworm and neurological problems have a home at HSGKC through the Gabriel Fund. Volunteering at HSGKC is more than something to look forward to every week. I wake up early on Saturdays (rain, snow, or shine) and can’t wait to see my canine, feline and human friends. I have seen dogs and cats overcome unfathomable abuse. Fletch, a bait dog, found a forever home just this month. Not only did Fletch get a second chance; He gave us one. HSGKC has changed my life and the way I live it.
