Snoopy was brought down today to occupy the room vacated by Carbon. It is fitting - Snoopy is another big black male cat. He does have a white tuft on his neck. Some of you may remember Snoopy. He spent a very short amount of time at PetSmart in the beginning of May last year. He had lived in the house with the original black and white Chewy. Snoopy's eye started weeping and we brought him back to the Shelter. Let's hope he does better this time! On January 22 of this year he marked one year at the Shelter. Snoopy is very friendly!! He will do fine in a home with kids and other pets. He is a big guy! Right now he is on the tier with Dusty and Mona Lisa however his door is shut. Give him time to settle before opening that door to allow him to mingle.
As we say good bye to Lisa who did Friday evenings for the past year we say welcome to Nicole who is taking over that spot!! Lisa, thank you for all of your help! Take care and if you ever want to jump in again you know how this works! Nicole, welcome to the group and thank you for volunteering in a regular spot. You will get the hang of it quickly! Remember, text me if you need a quick answer.
The March schedule looks good! Deb and Warren will be back next month so I need Sunday mornings covered for just one more month. Please let me know if you are available for any of them. Remember...you can go in a little later...just be started by 10:00am.
The only other date in March that needs coverage is Friday, March 21, AM cleaning.
Attention morning volunteers...the general manager asks that if you are finished cleaning prior to 9:00am when the store opens please find the on duty manager before you go so the door can be locked behind you.
Please do not give anyone volunteer applications any longer. I am finding that the majority of people completing the applications do not follow through and the processing of many of these applications is a waste of time. I have changed the process. Starting in March interested people are to attend orientation FIRST to see if this is a good fit for them. Following orientation they will be given an application and interest sheet to complete. Orientations will be held on the last Wednesday of the month at the Shelter at 4:30pm. Refer people to the website for the guidelines. I am will provide a handout with the guidelines that you can give to interested people.
