Junior Volunteers
Wednesday, 02 March 2011

HSDC celebrates the junior volunteers of our organization -- and our city. We have many young people who volunteer at the shelter with their parents. They come to make life a little happier for the animals in our care and learn about the needs of the abandonned animals in our city. Then, hopefully, they become our ambassadors to help educate their friends and classmates about the need for support of animal rescue efforts.


A special group of junior volunteers are the young people like Jordan (pictured here). They turn their birthday parties into fundraisers for the shelter or have a hot chocolate stand in the cold weather (or lemonade in the summer!) -- and solicit donations and gifts for the animals, instead of gifts for themselves. With these unselfish acts, these special volunteers become role models for their peers, leading by example as humane citizens of our city.


We applaud them all and will continue to acknowledge these extraordinary young people who demonstrate a bright future for our city.


This feature is new to our website but we acknowledge all the young people who have previously donated generously in this very special way. We are happy to feature and acknowledge these special volunteers. Please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
