To the editor:
Lee County Domestic Animal Services is in need of energetic, committed individuals to walk and exercise dogs at the shelter. Anyone interested should attend a brief meeting at the shelter on Saturday, June 15, at 10:30 am.
Attendees will get a brief overview of the program and have a chance to observe current volunteers during their daily interactions with the dogs. Dog walkers also assist potential adopters in selecting the pet that best suits their lifestyle.
The medium to large-size dogs desperately need interaction to relieve boredom and allow them a chance to play and exercise. It's a tough job but one's that's as rewarding for the volunteer as it is for the dogs.
The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway, next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office. Please enter through the Lost and Found Pet Center (orange bldg. entrance).
