We have a wonderful program and we consider ourselves family. The writing may sound tough but we have limited space and time. The volunteer program is run by volunteers and to be quite honest too many people have wasted our valuable time, that we could be spending raising needed funds or working with the animals, after NOT following the directions. Thank you for understanding.
