I started volunteering in the spring of 2013. Starting with the Pet Adoption Days then later I was asked to help with some committees. During the course of volunteering [for the first time] I found it very easy to ask people to support me when asking on behalf of the animals in need. I have grown as a person as a result. CSHS has enabled me to truly make an impact on helping animals in need which has been very near and dear to me since childhood. Pooling resources enables us to make the greatest impact in our mission. I highly recommend anyone to help any way they can: financially, fostering, volunteering... it is well worth your time when working with CSHS.
I have volunteered for 21 years with the CSHS. They are run by a small handful of dedicated volunteers and make a big difference in the lives of abandoned, abused animals that come their way. Funding is always a problem, as it is totally donation based. Foster homes are always needed, as CSHS does not have a permanent shelter, just land on which to build a future one. Volunteers are in short supply.
