Quote from Linda

“A lot of people I have talked to think they could never volunteer at the shelter because it is sad or they would take every animal home. I feel it might seem sad, but the more people volunteer is a lot of hard work. Every time I volunteer I feel happy on the inside knowing I have made a difference. “
