The 25th annual Hands on Greenville Day was held on Saturday (May 4) and CCA was honored to be among the organizations supported by our local community.
Ten volunteers from Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart P.C. joined several CCA volunteers for a morning of service focused on outdoor landscaping and updates that would make the environment safer and cleaner for our animals and volunteers.
Together the nearly 20 volunteers tackled several outdoor projects:
They moved the outdoor play yard to a different location with significantly more shade, giving our pups a safer and cooler place to romp together.
They cleaned out all of the igloos (dog houses) in each of the outdoor pens and added new cedar chips, giving our dogs a fresh and clean place to rest.
They also made several improvements to the landscape, including laying a truckload of crush and rocks to make a parking pad for the shelter van, cleaning out/mulching the flower beds, and blowing away the fallen leaves.
“We are thankful for all of the volunteers’ efforts during HOG Day,” said Adoptions Director Renee Franklin. “The projects completed today have not only improved our shelter environment, they have also freed up valuable time for our weekly volunteers to focus on the animals in our care.”
After the work was completed, the volunteers made some time to love on some of the animals.
Thank you to everyone who came out for your help!
