To run a shelter like CfD’s, it’s almost impossible to rely solely on volunteers. They usually have a lot of obligations besides the time they’re able to dedicate to activities around CfD.
You need some professionals who can guarantee that the dogs get their food on time, and that emergency cases don’t have to be postponed to next weekend, and so on.
CfD is lucky enough to have found individuals for these positions who have far from taken this as just another nine to five job. They don’t leave their hearts at home when going to work – when you watch these guys you know what is meant by the expression “a motivated team” – they’re always willing to go that extra mile.
