A no-kill shelter needs more volunteers.
The Protectors of Animals has locations in East Hartford, East Hampton and Wethersfield. The shelters are solely run by volunteers and one employee.
The shelters need about 10 volunteers to make things a lot easier for them.
Shelters are looking for people to help clean and feed the animals as well as help walk dogs.
“But our biggest need right now is we need the early birds and the rise and shine folks that can come in around 7, 7:30 a.m.,” said Jody Macrina, President of Protectors of Animals. “You do work with partners so and we also train to do the duties.”
In the East Hartford shelter, volunteers would care for cats.
In Wethersfield, East Hampton and the East Hartford Petsmart, volunteers would care for dogs.
If you’re interested in helping out at any of the shelters, they’re asking you to just contact that location.
But with some volunteers needed to cover shifts, it hasn't been easy for the shelters.
“Everybody pitches in but everyone carries they’re heavy lifters some of these volunteers so I don’t like to ask them to do more," said Macrina.
If you’re interested in helping out at any of the shelters, they’re asking you to contact Protectors of Animals at 860-569-0722 with the location you'd like to help at.
