Humane Society Needs


IN OTHER NEWS… IF YOU LOVE WALKING DOGS…THE CENTRAL DAKOTA HUMANE SOCIETY HAS THE JOB FOR YOU… KXNEWS REPORTER SONJI MILBURN TELLS US– BEING A VOLUNTEER DOG WALKER BENEFITS BOTH YOU AND THE ANIMAL. NAT SOUND-DOG BARKING IT’S A JOB SHELTERS HAVE A HARD TIME FILLING…DOG WALKERS. SOT: IT’S NICE TO PLAY WITH THE ANIMALS AND ENJOY THEM, BUT, I AM NOT IN THE POSITION TO HAVE A DOG BECAUSE I DONT HAVE THE TIME TO DEDICATE TO REALLY KEEPING ONE IN THE HOUSE. BUT THAT DOESNT STOP STUART RIFAS FROM GOING TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY TO WALK THEM FOR AT LEAST 15 TO 20 MINUTES. SOT: ACTUALLY, IT WAS MY SONS IDEA THAT HE WANTED TO COME AND VISIT THE ANIMALS AND WE TALKED ABOUT THIS A FEW WEEKS AGO. WE FOUND OUT IN ORDER TO DO THAT WE HAD TO COME DOWN AND TAKE THE CLASSES. AND WHETHER YOU HAVE PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE OR NOT, IF YOU WANT TO BE A DOG WALKER YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH A TRAINING SESSION. SOT:THE TRAINING IS ONCE A MONTH, AND WE TALK ABOUT HOW TO GET ANIMALS IN AND OUT OF THE KENNELS, WHAT KIND OF HARNESS TO USE AND JUST THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING TIGHT LEASHES VOLUNTEERS DO MORE THAN JUST WALK THE DOGS, THEY INTERACT WITH THEM…EVEN IF THAT MEANS SITTING IN THE KENNELS AND COMFORTING THEM. SOT: JUST FOR ME PERSONALLY THE REASON WHY I DO IT IS BECAUSE I FEEL THAT IT’S SO GOOD FOR THE DOGS TO HAVE SOMEONE LOVING AND TO SHOW THEM SOME LOVE WHILE THEY ARE HERE. SO, WHEN THEY GO HOME THAT THEY KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE GOOD AND WILLING TO GIVE THEM THE LOVE THEY DESERVE. VOLUNTEERS CAN START AS EARLY AS AGE 13. AS FOR STUART, VOLUNTEERING IS HIS WAY TO MAKE NEW FURRY FRIENDS. REPORTING IN BISMARCK, SONJI MILBURN, KX NEWS.
