Summer 2017 has flown by way too fast. Charleston Animal Society was so fortunate to have three outstanding interns working with us. We want to give a special thanks to each of them for all of their hard work and we hope they will take what they’ve learned and spread the humane education lessons to everyone they know. Good luck to each of you and please come visit us often!
Angel worked in our Sam Greer Spay/Neuter Clinic. Angel will be attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she will be studying nutrition. During her time with Charleston Animal Society, she gained the understanding of why it is so important to control the overpopulation of animals. Angel has been a tremendous help training our new volunteers working in surgery preparing them to work “the beach.” She has created a lasting impression with those volunteers that she has helped train.
Brianna worked as an Intern with the Foster Program. She will be attending Lander University in Greenwood, SC, studying art (drawing and painting).
She enjoyed her experience here and learned a lot about new fosters and how to take care of them and find them homes. She became a whiz at Raiser’s Edge (a fundraising software) and input all of the Fosters into the program. Her favorite part was being able to pet cats. Her experience at Charleston Animal Society has her looking into volunteering at a shelter in Greenwood as she attends college.
Zames worked in the kitten room during his internship. He is attending Lander University in Greenwood, SC, studying computer science.
He confessed that he was not a cat person previously but his favorite part of the job was working with the kittens and finding out how cool it is to be around cats. He said that this was an “awesome first job” with the staff being knowledgeable teachers. Zames’ favorite story is about the kitten named Alfred who stopped eating. Staff brought in Chicken for Alfred but he wouldn’t eat it. Then Zames poured the chicken on his lap and the kitten gobbled the chicken up! Zames was happy to see that his effort encouraged Alfred to start eating regularly!
