“We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful shelter and such a supportive, great community here. Our heart is here with the work we do,” center director Ron Edwards said.More than 250 volunteers and 40 employees helped the adoptions move smoothly, including Lisa Cook, who volunteered for the fifth time “My company is right across the street and I love to volunteer when I can.
