AWL Volunteer Day
Please join us for our monthly visit to the Animal Welfare League intake facility on Sunday, January 23rd, to cuddle and play with their kitties. This is an incredibly rewarding volunteer opportunity, as AWL has many adult cats and kittens who are literally pining away for the lack of attention. The more socialized these kitties become, the better their chances of eventually getting adopted or pulled by a rescue group. Depending on how many people are interested, we will organize ourselves into shifts from 10am-3pm. We welcome drivers to help with carpooling, and we also arrange safe public-transit togetherness.
We have received a special request to bring wet cat food in cans. If you would like to donate cans of wet food, please see the post below.
On Saturday the 22nd we will have a meatball-making session, because HPCats loves our doggie friends too. Meatballs help skinny dogs by providing extra protein; they also help the staff feed and socialize the dogs. Everyone is happier to cooperate when meatballs are involved! If you just want to make meatballs at home by yourself and then donate them, that's also fantastic. We have a dog-specific recipe; please email. Meatball making takes about an hour and is a nice social event, too.
If you're interested in participating, email Kim at (kriosmorrison) @ (gmail.com).
