Let the Spring service begin!!
Our first service project this semester was Furkids. As stated on their website, “Furkids is a 501(c)3, charitable, non-profit organization that provides a cage-free, no-kill shelter for rescued animals where they can experience the best care in a loving environment until they are adopted. Each year we rescue, shelter, sterilize, rehabilitate, and place hundreds of animals in permanent, loving homes.” My group and I volunteered at the house specifically for FIV+ cats. The nine of us along with a group of volunteers from Alpha Phi Omega from Oglethorpe University deep cleaned the whole house! We swept, mopped, vaccumed, cleaned the food bowls, water bowls, litter boxes- tons of litter boxes- and played with the cats. We all had a great time! You can even find us on the Furkids February blog. 🙂 Thanks, Furkids!!
There was also another group of Omega Phi Alpha girls that volunteered at the main shelter. I am not really sure what all they did because I wasn’t in that group, but here is a picture of them:
