Genesee County Animal Shelter hosts volunteer orientation
FLINT TOWNSHINP, Mich. - Animal lovers came together tonight to make a difference for four legged friends in Genesee County.
Genesee County Animal Control held a volunteer orientation Thursday.
Volunteers met to learn about the shelter and the jobs they will have.
They'll help walk, socialize and train dogs.
They'll also play with cats and share cuddle time with them.
The shelter's director says it's those contributions that have a profound impact on the lives of shelter animals.
"We get animals in off the street, we get them from all kinds of circumstances, and some of them don't know how to interact with humans, they don't know how to interact with other dogs, and our volunteer force actually helps us with that, and helps socialize the animals," said director Paul Wallace.
Volunteers will also network to help find adoptable animals homes.
If you're interested in volunteering, you can contact the animal shelter.
You will need to be 18 and have an ID.
