About Georgetown Animal Shelter
“The problem of pet overpopulation belongs to the community as a whole, not just to the people paid to work at the animal shelter. Without volunteers, the quality of life of pets in the animal shelter would be much lower. Without volunteers, they would seldom be taken out for walks, bathed, or just socialized in general. While paid staff of the animal shelter meet the physical needs of the pets in the shelter, our volunteers provide all the extras that help the pets get adopted!”https://pets.georgetown.org/volunteers/
