My June 21, 2009 posting was about my attempt to join the volunteers at the Contra Costa County Animal Services facility in Martinez, California. I haven’t posted an update because, well, there’s nothing to report.
I didn’t realize this at the time, but until recently I’ve been ineligible because, frankly, I’ve been an irresponsible dog owner. The county requires that any volunteer that owns dogs must have their registrations up to date and I had foolishly allowed one of my dogs’ registrations to expire. This has now been taken care of.
I will be giving the shelter’s director a call this week to see whether or not I need to re-apply. Stay tuned and cross your fingers.
