Youthlinks Finds Missing Cat While Volunteering!

Youthlinks Volunteering at Humane Society of Knox County

By Hannah Magnusson, Youthlinks Program Manager

The Youthlinks Student Garden Army celebrated Valentine’s Day with homemade heart shaped healthy treats for the dogs at the Pope Memorial Humane Society. The dogs were excited to gobble down the peanut butter treats and they definitely loved the attention!

The afternoon brought the high school group an exciting surprise when visiting the cats. “This is my cat!”, exclaimed 8th grader Winter Cormier.  The staff at the animal shelter confirmed that all the data matched and the cat, Cinder, purred against the bars of her cage in recognition of her owner! It was a happy ending for all of us.
