This is the other part of the colossus that is PAWS. Although not individually listed here, the volunteers are acknowledged and recognised by the administration as the backbone of the day-to-day operations of the PAWS Shelter and Charity shop. Without the dedication, thoroughness and perseverance of the volunteers, PAWS could not survive.
The total number of volunteers at the shelter out-number staff by more than twenty to one. The ratio at the shop is similar.
When PAWS volunteers are asked why they give up their time so willingly, the invariable answer is ‘because of the dogs’. Surprisingly some volunteers have never in their life owned a dog, usually because of work or family commitments but at the shelter everyone gets to sample the affection that dogs give. That includes volunteers who clean, feed, groom, walk or socialise the dogs.
The charity shop volunteers also play a vital role in the economics of the Association as the shop is of paramount importance in raising funds to run the shelter. The shop volunteers give up their time on a regular basis and work hard to make the shop attractive to customers. At least one volunteer has been helping at the PAWS shop for over 20 years and as you can imagine she has seen a lot of change in that time.
