Thank You to all who made the BARKS Tricky Tray & Buffet Dinner a SUCCESS!

October 2015 - We need your Help: We need more volunteers to help care for the cats at the Byram Shelter - nightly and weekend feeding/scooping. We also need 'cat socializers' - i.e. you pet the kitties to reduce their stress and increase their acceptance of humans. It's a fun job! Must be 18 or over. Please fill out the volunteer application and join us today!
