Volunteers Needed for Love Where You Live
Is your organization looking for a volunteer activity? The Love Where You Live team invites your group to assist neighbors in need with minor home repair projects, litter cleanup and storm drain marking. Be part of the next Service Day in the Douglass Community on Saturday, Sept. 14, 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Adults and teens are welcome!

Landscaping, tree trimming and house painting are just a few of the ways your group can help. Learn about other needs during our project adoption and volunteer training tonight, Aug. 20. Join us at 6 p.m. at 7501-A Independence Pkwy.

Sign up to strengthen our community and transform this great neighborhood. We hope to see you on Sept. 14!

Love Where You Live has more volunteer opportunities coming in April 2020.
91 Pets Find New Homes
Saturday's Clear the Shelters event placed 91 dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and a hedgehog with their forever families! We cannot express the gratitude we have for our staff and our dedicated volunteers who worked throughout the day.

Local businesses supporting the success of Clear the Shelters this year were: NBC-5, Telemundo 39, Einstein Bros. Bagels (Coit Road), Pizza Hut, Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers #085 (15th Street & Park Boulevard) and Hill's Pet Nutrition. 

Thanks to all those who adopted pets and became part of our extended Shelter family. We love you and our spectacular volunteers!
