As the winner of Take Jess to Work, the shelter was recently graced with the presence of 94.3/97.3 The Wolf morning show co-host Jess. She came to work with us for the morning and had a great experience, which she shares below. Thanks Jess!
I had so much fun last Friday for Take Jess to Work! The fine folks over at the Ulster County SPCA sent in an email requesting me to come out and help walk their dogs, feed their cats and check out the rabbits. I couldn’t turn down an opportunity like that!
Jenn in the Marketing Department put me right to work on Friday. They set me up in Cat room. I came just in time to give them all breakfast. Now, usually I’m not a cat person, but these guys were great and super friendly.
Afterwards I took a tour of the facility. I got to take a look at the Kennels and back offices. Again, Jenn got me right in there getting down and dirty cleaning out a kennel. I was told this is a daily process for each one of their dog kennels, which is great because it’s giving the dog a clean comfortable environment to live in before they are adopted.
While on the tour, I saw how they keep track of which dogs are walked and who needs special attention. The Ulster County SPCA also has a ton of events going on withing the next couple months including Cookout For a Cause on May 23rd and 24th at Verizon Wireless Cellular Sales (338 Rt 212) in Saugerties. The Cookout is to raise money for the Ulster County SPCA building expansion. It’s a great cause that will give the wonderful staff at the Ulster County SPCA more space to house rescues, Jenn told me on Friday that they are at capacity making it difficult to house anymore rescued animals.
Thank you again to everyone at the Ulster County SPCA . They rely on local funding and volunteering to keep the organization moving. So if you can find the time make sure to stop by their Cookout for A Cause on May 23rd &24th and check out their website http://www.ucspca.org/.
