Working with our animals
Friends of Felines
Our cats have a special place in our hearts. FOF help with getting our cats and kittens socialized, they assist the public in picking out the purrfect cat for them, they keep our cat room nice and tidy and they provide the cats with all of the love and affection they deserve! The FOF provide that special touch of human – feline bonding that each one of our cats needs.
Our goal is to touch the lives of every dog who comes through our doors, whether a 6 month old puppy or 13 year old dog. If they are out going and friendly or shy and a little untrusting it doesn’t matter to us. We want the dogs here to know that they are loved and appreciated for what they can provide us. You can help us in doing this, by showing them love, walking, playing in the yard, bathing, brushing them. Our goal is to show these lovable canines that they are loved unconditionally!
Public Relations & Community Outreach
Wanted: Outgoing and friendly people to help with our monthly adoption, fundraising and educational events. Are you looking for a way to spread the word about the wonderful animals available for adoption at SYV Humane? We have monthly community/ adoption events where we would love some help in getting the word out about our animals. We would also love some help with our fundraising events, you can help organize, set up and operate and tear down our special event booths. Assist with handling our animals or help with promotion and fundraising!
