Last weekend, a group of Roeslein’s Community Service Committee members volunteered at the local Pet Friends and Rescue animal shelter in Hollister, California. They spent their morning gardening and cleaning up their outdoor dog park.
Last year Roeslein’s Hollister location raised funds to help Pet Friends and Rescue renovate their dog park by providing new walkways, tables for guests, and play areas for the animals.
“Due to the heatwave, I wasn’t expecting a big turnout, but our animal-loving friends were there with gloves, garden tools, and a big smile,” said Community Service committee member Veronica Sanchez. “Due to the pandemic, there was a significant decrease in donations, so last year’s large-scale beautification project let them know how much we appreciate all they have done to keep adoptable pets safe. We are committed to helping keep the garden clean, so it can continue to welcome families for years to come.”
Pet Friends and Rescue is a non-profit organization that benefits homeless companion animals of San Benito County. It is the only no-kill animal rescue facility in Hollister that has run solely on donations and volunteers for 25 years. To learn more or to donate, please visit www.petfriends.org.
