After a brief orientation and tour of the facilities, the sisters were ready to get down to business. The jobs were divided amongst the active members of the Beta Gamma Chapter and the membership candidates alike, and while it was a chilly and early morning for volunteering, the sisters were happy to do the work that would improve the lives of the pets in the shelter.
Some sisters worked in the “Cattery,” or the cat adoption center, and cleaned cages, provided fresh food, and washed bedding for the cat’s living areas. At the other end of the shelter, the sisters cleaned dog bedding, toys and made peanut-butter filled treats for the pets to enjoy. Additionally, sisters socialized with dogs and cats alike, stopping by the Leukemia Cattery, where leukemia cats played in a serene shelter as they eagerly awaited adoption. It was hard and often dirty work, but the sisters walked away with full and happy hearts, knowing their work made a huge difference in the lives of animals in need of some tender love and care.
