SPCA Looking for Volunteers to Help Clean Storm Damage

Posted: Updated: March 9, 2013 05:08 PM EST

Volunteers are working to clean up storm debris outside the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA - and they're asking for help.

Trees and large branches cover the paths they use to walk the dogs. Some trees even landed on the fencing which is used to keep the dogs in an outdoor play area.

Because there are breaks in the fencing, the SPCA is forced to keep the animals cooped up inside.

"We've got a lot of animals in the facility and they rely on their daily exercise to stay healthy and happy and when they can't get out and run and play, and it's more difficult for the volunteers with less space available to take them on walks," said Lisa Lane, director of SPCA marketing and development.

The SPCA is looking for volunteers and a tree company to help with the clean-up and repair efforts. To help with the cleanup, call Beth McPhee at 434-973-5959.
