August Volunteer of the Month: STEVE WARREN

We love our volunteers! They give so much to help
us, so we're giving them a big "shout-out" with our Volunteer of the Month feature.

Introducing our August Volunteer of the Month –
Steve Warren. What he loves best about volunteering with Colony Cats (& dogs) is walking into the adoption center each week and knowing his "pals" are waiting to greet him. Before doing any work Steve spends some time with the cats and kittens saying hello to old friends, welcoming new ones and figuring out who may have been adopted during the past week.
