Volunteer of the Month: Linn Clark
Occasionally we get unusual donations of products we can't use the whole amount. Last summer we received more heartworm meds than we could use before they expired so we shipped 80 pounds of medicine to the Mobile, AL ASPCA. Last week Clinic Director K Anderson visited Alabama and met their director!
Cute Pet Pictures!
