Operations Office Volunteers With local Pet Rescue Organization
The Operations office was able to recently raise money and volunteer with local organization, Stray Rescue of St. Louis. During the month of December, the operations employees could donate $15 or $15 worth of supplies in exchange for casual days for the month of January. Like the Corporate office canine fundraiser, the first 75 Operations employees who donated also received a handmade pendant from Charlotte Hallworth.
Several employees also volunteered for a day with Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Their tasks for the day included walking, feeding and playing with the rescue dogs, while also cleaning their kennels and sorting toys. The Rescue’s sole purpose is to rescue stray animals in need of medical attention, restore them to health and place them in loving adoptive homes. As a no-kill shelter, their mission is to lead the way toward making St. Louis a compassionate city where every companion animal knows health, comfort and affection, and no stray is euthanized merely because he/she has been abandoned, abused or neglected.
Several of the volunteers even mentioned they plan to go back on their own time to volunteer with the organization again! To learn more about the organization visit www.strayrescue.org.
Chatham County supports Operation New Hope
Operation New Hope brings unwanted dogs, scheduled to be euthanized, into the jail in Savannah, Georgia. Pre-selected inmates house-train the dogs and teach them obedience in the hope of giving the dogs a second chance at adoption. The dogs remain in the inmate’s care, living in the same cell for four weeks. To date, 100% of the dogs in the program have been adopted, making it a win-win proposition for the dogs, the community and the inmates. Chatham County is a staunch supporter of this program.
