Shelby Human Society seeking volunteers, funds to help animals.

Have you ever felt empty? Sara Shirley had been working at EBSCO for about 23 years when she realized that is exactly how she felt – empty.

So she started volunteering with the Shelby Humane Society, where she’s been ever since.

“Now my bank account is empty, but my heart is full,” said Shirley, who is now the organization’s executive director. “I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Founded in 1977, the Shelby Humane Society is an open-admission, nonprofit animal shelter whose mission is to care for homeless, abused, neglected and abandoned animals while educating the public about responsible animal ownership and care. Shelby Humane also facilitates pet adoptions both in Shelby County and nationwide.
