Adopt-A-Pet: Looking For Volunteers
There is a small organization in Mason County that has been quietly helping dogs in need for 35 years. In just 2013, Adopt-A-Pet dog shelter saved the lives of 208 unwanted dogs and placed them in caring homes. They also offer a spay/neuter program for low income and elderly Mason County residents, as well as provide dog food for the pets of families facing hard times.
These good deeds are accomplished by a small band of dedicated volunteers, with no paid positions. But in order to help the community, they need help from the community. According to Rachel Sedlacek, Vice President of Adopt-A-Pet, that is the struggle for any small non-profit. You don’t have the people or money to go out and get the people or money you need to keep going. The group holds several fundraisers per year, such as plant and yard sales, a golf tournament, and pet pictures with Santa.
