Can simply walking a nervous dog help save its life? Can spending some time with a scared cat turn into something wonderful? The answer to both is yes. Volunteers at the Animal Foundation do these simple things and more to help pets find their forever homes. The shelter is looking for people willing to commit to as little as six hours a month to be part of their ambitious Mission: Possible 2020. Getting all healthy and treatable animals adopted can only happen with the help of volunteers.
