I was running late for work this morning, so I will share tonight’s note of appreciation now.
Tonight, I thank each of our animal control facilities, shelters, animal control officers, shelter staff and shelter volunteer staff for the incredible partnership we have developed over the last seven years. We simply could not be successful in our mission to reunite lost and found pets if it weren’t for them.
You might not realize it, but many of these individuals follow the posts within our community of St Louis, Missouri Lost & Found Paws.
