Columbia organization seeks volunteers to help furry friends

November 3, 2018 by  

The Central Missouri Humane Society offers animals in need of shelter a place to call home until they can find a family of their own, and this is just one of the many services it performs. It has put out a call to people in the Columbia area who may be interested in being a part of its work on a volunteer basis.

The society will be hosting a class where potential volunteer can find out more about the special events it holds, both as fundraisers and to educate the public about caring for animals. The topics covered have been chosen so that these future helpers will better understand the organization, the work it performs in the community, and also what their role will be.

Students in the class will find out how to complete offsite adoptions, as well as how to select which animals and what learning materials to bring to a specific event. It was noted that most of the society’s events are held on weekends, but it also hosts some throughout the week. A printer can both design and supply corporate gifts such as volunteer T-shirts, lanyards, ID cards, and many other items.

This opportunity for the public to discover how they can lend animals in need a helping hand will be held on December 1 at 616 Big Bear Boulevard in Columbia.
