Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center is at all times on the lookout for volunteers to assist.
At a county Health and Welfare Committee assembly, officers discussed the necessity for one more worker at Animal Control in January, in addition to a wage improve for 2 different workers.
Committee chair Blaine Wilcher stated workers are doing it out of their love for animals, not the cash.
“We have a situation where we know obviously it is hard to find anyone to work with what we are paying some of the people,” stated Wilcher. “They wouldn’t do it if they didn’t love it. That is the only reason they are working there. It is not for the money, we know that.”
Wilcher stated that sure certifications the staff have, or can be getting, will justify the wage improve. Wilcher lately volunteered on the heart and acknowledged there may be appreciable work.
“We need these people there,” stated Wilcher. “It is a seven-day-a-week job.”
Commissioner Kasey Owens additionally volunteered on the shelter and encourages everybody to volunteer doing one thing they’re captivated with.
“After I went, I can’t even explain. I should go more. More people should go more,” stated Owens. “It says a lot about a person who volunteers for something they are passionate about, regardless if it is the Animal Control center. It can be Kids of the Community, or whatever it is you are passionate about you should definitely get out there and volunteer.”
Wilcher agreed and also will be wanting into amending the finances to permit one other worker and two wage increases. He says among the best methods to assist Animal Control is to volunteer.
Anyone wishing to volunteer can choose up an utility on the County Executive’s Office on 201 Locust Street.
