It is wonderful to see so many people offering to help. Being the control freak that I am I need to get some order to the chaos. I have started a yahoo group for SAINTS volunteers. I would like everyone who is offering to help to please subscribe. This way we can send out one email and it will reach everyone without having to remember everyone's address. Here is the link: http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/SAINTSvolunteers/
Our immediate needs are for volunteers to do the barn on the weekday evenings. This involves bringing the animals in and feeding them. Currently this responsibility is going to fall heavily onto Jean and I would like to less that if possible. If I have missed anything in this routine please advise (Carol, Jean, Mo). We have 2 volunteers doing the barn on the weekday mornings this week but we will need some more help next week and going forward.
We also need volunteers to go and hang out with animals, especially in the evenings, until Carol has had her surgery and is at least there. The animals are really feeling this change in their routine and any extra attention they can get at this time is greatly appreciated. If you can do a couple of loads of laundry or wash a floor while you are there hanging out it will help immensely.
If there is an area you want to help out in but don't know how just let us know and we will arrange for someone to train you.
Once again, thanks to everyone for the incredible outpouring of offers of help and donations at this time. It is appreciated by all of us and especially the animals!
