Volunteer Appreciation Week

This year we have had our best turn out to date and we have many people to thank. Our shelter simply would not fuction without the continued support of our dedicated thrift store staff, our evening volunteers, our snow removal crew, our Christmas sale helpers, our bake sale experts, and so on and so on. The list is endless and I know that we have missed people as well. 

We were very fortunate to have the Legion as our venue and enjoyed a night of celebrating just what makes us great....our volunteers! The Lazy Daises were our entertainment and they were just what we needed, they were a folkie mix of the most popular party hits. The have an amazing selection of music and had even selected special songs to dedicate to our lifetime volunteers.

The spread of food was a large one and no one went home hungry. The Legion supplied us was bar service so a glass of wine was enjoyed while we sat and listened to our live entertainment. We made sure to include gluten free and vegetarian options as we want to make sure that everyone was included and felt welcome. We had cake to celebrate and made sure to snap a photo of our longest volunteer and our longest employee. Again we want to thank you for celebrating the people that make a difference in the lives of our animals day in and day out.
