Jonette Hardy likes playing with cats. As a client of TURN Community Services, she is also able to give back to her community by volunteering at the St. George Animal Shelter’s “cat room.” The cat room may house as many as 30 cats at a time, so keeping it clean for the animals is essential. For more than 13 years, Hardy has arrived every Wednesday morning to help with the cleaning of the animals’ housing, in addition to spending time with the cats and kittens. Click here to read more.
