WCJC Animal Shelter, November 9 - VIDEO

There are always too many animals crowding our local shelters. Always.

While the summer months increase attendance, it never dips enough to give the animals enough room and attention. It never dips enough to give the employees a break. Volunteers are needed. Badly.

If you get the chance, you should visit your local shelter and consider volunteering, or possibly even consider taking a pet home. I say that all the time in these videos, and I mean it each time.

Pets are wonderful and make your life so much richer. Your life expectancy increases. Your capacity for joy increases. It’s wonderful.

Give it a shot.
