SHELBY CARES RECRUITING RESERVES VOLUNTEERS
The agency is looking to train citizens who are interested in serving in shelters during a disaster. These reserves will be trained to assist the staff in operations and maintaining the day-to-day business of housing and feeding those in need.
Shelby Cares reserves must be at least 18 years of age, a citizen of Shelby County, and have reliable transportation. Once trained, Shelby Cares reserves will be expected to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours per shift when called in to a shelter.
Those who are interested, please email Terry Donald at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Before disaster strikes, it is vitally important that we are proactive and make our animals part of our preparation plans. They are our responsibility.
