The Dalles, OR, April 26 — Home at Last Humane Society is hosting a major volunteer shelter grounds clean-up day on Saturday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in preparation for its upcoming fundraiser Dimes for Dogs Walkathon.
We are still looking for volunteers to help with spreading wood chips, weeding, sprucing up the dog play yard, landscaping, general maintenance and cleaning, plus our ongoing processing of bottles and cans for redemption.
Several local businesses such as Pure Powder (IFF) and TCC (Verizon) have already signed up teams to participate in the April 30 clean-up day. Other business teams, students and individual community members are encouraged to sign up for the specific time slots that work best for them via the Home at Last website.
Please bring gloves, rakes, brooms, your ‘can do’ attitude and your love for animals. Redeemable bottles and cans are appreciated too.
“Volunteers are so important to the success of our mission. They will help us get the shelter and grounds ready for our Dimes for Dogs Walkathon coming up on May 21,” said Stephen Drynan, executive director of Central Oregon Animal Friends, which operates the Home at Last Humane Society as well as an animal shelter in Madras. “Volunteer help allows our already overextended staff to focus on serving the needs of the animals.”
Please sign up to volunteer for this fun clean-up day by Friday, April 29 so we know how many volunteers to anticipate. Snacks and water are available.
