This is not a shelter dog project. It is a people project. It is a story about the symbiotic relationship animal shelter volunteers share with their canine and feline dependents, and the beautiful caretaking that happens between the two species.
Loving a shelter animal not only gives an animal a second chance at living a life they deserve, it allows a human volunteer to experience the wonderful gift of giving love. Together, both human and animal can lift each other up through that shared shelter experience. I see that as the magic of shelter work.
