About this Article

If compassion was all it took to place every cuddly kitten or playful pup into a permanent home, Waifs and Strays Animal Rescue would have it easy. The all-volunteer group has plenty of care and concern for homeless animals. Even so the organization also needs volunteers, foster homes and donations. "We are a small shelter, so it is hard for us to get our word out," rescue volunteer Donna Finch said.
