I am writing in hopes that you will help me get the message out about the Mae Bachur Animal Shelter.

I am a volunteer and, as I have always been a cat person, I started out by playing with and socializing the cats. After my playtime, I would take a walk around the shelter to see the dogs.

Well, a whole new world opened up.

I started walking the dogs and socializing with the scared, abused and lonely animals. I am not the only one who does this kind of work. Many volunteers come out to walk and help with the dogs and cats. With a bit of love and learning, the change in the animals is amazing.

The staff are amazing. They spend the day cleaning, feeding, giving medicines and putting the dogs out into the yard to get some exercise. When there is a rare spare moment, you will see the staff sitting in a kennel petting, brushing or just holding a dog or cat.

I am telling you about this amazing place to let you know that the animal shelter needs help.

They need money to carry out this important work, so I am asking, if you are thinking about making a charitable donation, please think about the animal shelter.

No amount is too small. There are children who ask not to get presents on their birthdays, but ask for a small donation to give to the shelter.

And think about volunteering some time, or if you have an idea and wish to fundraise, let them know.

You get much more love back than the time you spend with the animals.

And don’t forget, you can take a new friend home.
