I have volunteered at the Humane Society of Sonoma County for several years. It has been a wonderful experience working with the dedicated, well trained, and loving staff. I have seen them do wonders with sick, injured or fearful homeless animals bringing them back to emotional and physical health. They participate with other non profits for free or low cost spay neuter clinics for cats, and help to educate the community on the importance of controlling animal overpopulation. They also have a wonderful small farm where children come to learn about kindness to animals. It is a wonderful community resource and I am proud to be one of their volunteers.
