We have so much to be grateful for this holiday season, but we’re ESPECIALLY grateful for our volunteers. Last year, our volunteers logged nearly 90,000 hours of service. We truly could not accomplish all that we do without our dedicated volunteer base.

To show our gratitude, local artist Alissa Alfonso came in and photographed styled portraits of our shelter animals… each representing a different volunteer position. We hope you all enjoy them as much as we do.
