Humane Society depends on dedicated volunteers

Volunteers are always needed at the Quincy Humane Society.
It takes a small army to take care of the many animals at the Quincy Humane Society.
In addition to the 19 part-time and full time staff, the organization is always in need of volunteers to help walk and take care of the 60 dogs at the facility.
The day begins with a morning feeding and walks for mans' best friends. Click here to learn about the walking process from KHQA This Morning.
Then staff members begin kennel clean-up and laundry, which is an all day process.
But what you may not know, is that staff members here also work with the animals on house training and behavioral skills to make them more adoptable to potential owners.
"We're not a sanctuary, so our goal here is to have the shortest stay here possible for these animals," said Sally Westerhoff, Executive Director of the Quincy Humane Society. "It's not only for their mental and physical health, but the quicker we can adopt them out, the more animals we can take in and have adopted out on an annual basis."
Workers and volunteers work tirelessly every day taking care of the many animals looking for good homes at the Quincy Humane Society.
Monday morning we introduced the November 2013 Pets of the Month at the Quincy Humane Society during KHQA This Morning.
Cassanova is an one-year-old terrier mix. He is housetrained and would get along well with any family ... and most dogs. Shelter workers say Cassanova will give his new family lots of love.
