We were a bit shorthanded last Sunday at the shelter, but we managed to get the job done nevertheless. Much of the work on any regular day is concentrated on cleaning every kennel and its run. That means washing, scrubbing, rinsing, and squeegeeing the dogs' living areas. We also collect the soiled blankets and replace them with fresh ones. A couple of volunteers prepare the food at our small kitchen counter. It's more time-consuming than it sounds. Of course, the dogs need to be walked. We walk the dogs before the cleaning begins, and then walk them again about an hour after they are fed. We begin the Sunday shift at 8am and by around noon we're done.
I realized that I have been partial to dogs in showcasing our animals at the shelter. This comes naturally since I do my volunteering exclusively at the dog house and I rarely enter our cattery. The cattery has its own very dedicated group of volunteers and hired employees. They have their own separate building, a small and enclosed outdoor area, and another building for quarantine. The cat department shares this Q building with the animal control department.
So, here are several cats up for adoption at the shelter. I wish had some first hand knowledge of how they are but I don't. Nevertheless, featuring them here would be additional exposure and that could mean better chances at adoption. If you don't see anyone that fancies you, please come to the shelter and see the rest of the cats.
