Volunteers needed at animal shelter

Published: Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

ROCK FALLS – Happy Tails Animal Shelter is looking for people to volunteer 2 hours a week at the facility, at 1408 McNeil Road.

At this time the shelter averages about two volunteers a day to care for about 85 animals,

The shelter takes in only the number of animals that can be cared for, which means that no more animals can be taken in after that point.

Volunteer hours are from 8 a.m. to noon, 7 days a week, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays, and 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursdays. Call 815-626-2994 for more information.
