Below is the contents of the weekly Adoptions & Newsletter email sent out on 9/29/11.
Hello, fellow Friends of BCAS volunteers!
Please spare a moment to read the following announcements:
• ORIENTATION CHANGE: Starting in OCTOBER, cat orientation classes will be separate from general/dog orientation, and will be every Monday at 6 PM. The monthly Saturday classes will be for dogs only, after the switch. The first cat orientation class is on 10/3! Potential cat volunteers who cannot attend a Monday class should email Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss alternatives.
• BRING YOUR DOG OUT FOR SOME FUN: Friends of BCAS will be set up at the 6th Annual Burlington County Pet Expo (by the library main branch on Saturday, Oct. 1st). We'll be showing our own personal adopted animals this time around, so let our organizer Barbara ( email@example.com ) know if you and your pet can come out even for an hour to sit with us and show the world how great an adopted pet can be! We also need people to come to help set up (10:30 AM) and pack up (4 PM).
• CAT VOLUNTEER UPDATE: I have happy news! UNLESS the shelter finds another case of distemper in the next few days (nothing's been found for over a week now), the cat program will resume this coming Monday, Oct. 3rd after over six weeks of quarantine! Let's hope it remains safe so we can give our cats a much-needed break soon! I will send out an email on Monday with the final word on the quarantine as soon as I know.
