Volunteers are the heart and soul and eyes and ears of any animal shelter. It’s no wonder that Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter forbid them for so long. But finally they are claiming to have a volunteer program ,  though it is clearly evident that TOH  is stalling this program.  Shelter dogs continue to languish in their cages as eager volunteers, waiting in the wings, are kept apart from walking them .  A few hand selected volunteers are being invited to "Adoption Events" and most certainly help the "image" of TOHAS, but the REAL NEED for volunteers is within the shelter, HANDS ON THE ANIMALS.
Please continue to be the hand that forces shelter reform, get in your application, and BE HEARD.

If you cannot volunteer please forward and post this opportunity to fellow animal lovers. Also post to work and social message boards. Our animals are still not being touched like they should be and they need your help.
